EDM fans that have been searching for the next emerging act to add to their collection can stop now: Van Norden’s Love At First Sight is just the release that will have new listeners fully engaged throughout the entire EP.


The musical journey that Van Norden has undertaken is definitely not a common blueprint and for that listeners can rejoice. His upcoming release may be purely EDM, but it is his folk background that has laid the groundwork for all of the work that has followed. Van Norden built his resume through acoustic folk work as a musician for the LA group SPINdrftr, often collaborating with other acoustic artists and acts in the area. It is evident that this early foray was the catalyst for the songwriting that can be found on Love At First Sight, which sets him apart from other EDM acts currently on the musical landscape.




Hailing from Vancouver, Van Norden has already made a significant mark as a songwriter, producer, and collaborator in Canada through work with musicians, filmmakers, and media artists. It is evident through the mixes on the EP Love At First Sight that he has taken these efforts and collectively fashioned them into a sound that utilizes all of his talents and influences. The first single is only an indicator of things to come. Currently, Van Norden is busy producing a video to go along with the single ‘Love At First Sight’, with upcoming tracks delving further into the EDM universe.
