David Maas (Admiral Sananda) started producing music around 1998 when he received a copy of the original Propellerhead Reason as a gift. Music he produces is mellow and far out – invoking spacey landscapes and aural journeys.
Admiral Sananda’s DJ sets treat sound irreverently and target all the points where one type of sound becomes indistinguishable from another. Over the years this has been honed to a unique and mind expanding sound with distinct influences from the American Rave movement.
David now resides in Salt Lake City, and is always down to DJ. He’s completely comfortable with Pioneers, vinyl, or his own equipment.
