BlackGummy
BlackGummy
BlackGummy began as the brainchild of Los Angeles-based producer Iman Marouf. Marouf discovered the entity called “BlackGummy” in 2013 during a trip to the Middle East and Asia, and instantly formed a unique and inseparable bond with the alien-like idol. Since their first meeting, the producer and the entity have virtually conjoined into an indivisible whole, never leaving one another’s side.

Trained by Steve Duda, the legendary sound engineer (who counts mau5trap head honcho deadmau5 among his frequent collaborators) and creator of the Serum VST, BlackGummy consistently showcases his unique prowess for employing a wide variety of entirely original sounds in his songs. A graduate of the Icon Collective music production school in Burbank, CA, BlackGummy and Duda met via the school’s mentorship program, where his apprenticeship under the venerable sound engineer helped to hone the young producer’s sound design and engineering skills. That is when BlackGummy started beta testing the Serum VST for Duda (and is accordingly listed in the VST’s credits, along with deadmau5 himself).

BlackGummy has an obsessive fascination for sound design and music production. He views his productions as checkpoints in a tireless quest to improve his mastery of this skill, routinely spending 15 hours a day honing his craft. In 2015, mau5trap discovered BlackGummy, and immediately recognized his unique prowess for production and sound design. Later that year, the label released BlackGummy’s first original — “Lullaby” — on mau5trap’s We Are Friends compilation, which Earmilk called a “can’t miss.” Most recently, in February 2016, mau5trap released BlackGummy’s debut EP titled “Singularity,” inspired by the concept of “technological singularity,” which Dancing Astronaut praised as “an intriguing artistic vision,” which “moves uninhibited from dark industrial to uplifting progressive, challenging the notion that producing one style necessitates ignoring the other.”

Since the implicit convergence of the producer’s and idol’s identities into one amalgamation, BlackGummy spends almost all of his time locked away, with the idol, in his in-home studio, crafting new productions that attempt to lend a voice to the silent idol. He only withdraws from his studio in rare instances: first, to perform alongside the idol in nightclubs and music venues, and second, to search the four-corners of the Earth for more clues as to the idol’s origins. His fascination with the latter arose from a Latin inscription that lay emblazoned beside the idol when he first discovered it.

The quote read, “In perpetuum, salutem in omnibus locis; In omni loco, in omni tempore.”
Matt Lange
Matt Lange
Matt Lange has become a name synonymous with attention to detail, precision, and musical craftsmanship, all without losing sight of emotional impact. Matt?s musical pedigree veers strongly from the typical path of the modern electronic musician; from singing in a boys' choir to later playing lead guitar in a metal band, his influences are as varied as they are numerous.

His releases through Anjunadeep have been supported by many prominent figures in dance music including Richie Hawtin, John Digweed, Sasha, Above & Beyond and Annie Nightingale. Next, he has plans for several releases with mau5trap, and deadmau5 himself is remixing Matt's upcoming release, "Scorched Earth Policy", which will mark deadmau5's first official remix in over two years. Then there is BT, who hand-picked Matt to co-program and engineer the critically acclaimed, Grammy-nominated album "These Hopeful Machines". Matt's other accolades include delivering official remixes for Imogen Heap, pop superstar Usher and the Halo 4 video game soundtrack, co-writing/producing acts such as Glenn Morrison (with whom he earned a Platinum record), composing and producing original music for an Internet Explorer TV commercial, and even scoring a feature length film for Fox. Matt's sheer versatility and top-notch studio skills make him a force to be reckoned with.

In addition to his production talents, Matt's DJ sets are notable for their musicality, diversity, and depth. In addition to festival plays at EDC Las Vegas, TomorrowWorld, WMC, and SXSW, he has appeared at notable clubs across North America including Avalon (Hollywood), Webster Hall (NYC), Exchange (LA), New City Gas (Montreal), Mansion (Miami), Hoxton (Toronto), Voyeur (San Diego), Ruby Skye (San Francisco), and more.
