Anamē is comprised of two producers – Marcus Schossöw (also celebrated for his work under his gardenstate moniker) and Thomas Sagstad. Their friendship emerged from the wave of underground house music that hit Scandinavia in the early 2000s.
The duo early on released multiple genre-crossing collaborations on legendary Global Underground and Ministry Of Sound before embarking on their solo careers. Their solo careers have taken them worldwide, working with celebrated artists like Swedish House Mafia, Tiesto, Kaskade, Dirty Vegas, and touring the continents for almost two decades.
Throughout their careers, the guys stayed best friends – working with each other both on stage and behind the scene. Fast forward to 2019, just before the global pandemic hit, Marcus started to work on his new project, gardenstate. Although Thomas was unable to join the project full time, he stayed on and helped with the creative and business side of the project. One album, sold out vinyl edition, 12 million streams (and counting), #2 dance chart in the USA and Canada, heavy radio support from BBC Radio 1, a global tour supporting Above & Beyond – performing at sold-out shows at Red Rocks, Creamfields, Drumsheds, Untold, Echostage and many more later – gardenstate made its mark on the scene, with its genre-crossing, easy-going approach to dance music.
In mid-2021, the boys got together to write music for the follow-up album in the studio. However, they quickly realized that the music exceeded their imagination and the potential of the gardenstate project. And so anamē _(in Old Norwegian – to adapt) was born. Moving into 2022 – they have lined up an impressive list of original releases, collaborations and remixes getting released via outlets like Rejected, Petit Matin, and their home Anjunabeats. In addition, the boys get back on the road – playing clubs and festivals on all continents.
Last but not least, an anticipated first anamē _album is on the books for early 2023 via their home label, Anjunabeats.
