anti atlas

Chris and Ned

Anti Atlas is a collaboration of two talents - classically trained composer Ned Bigham and producer/artist manager Chris Hufford. Together they form a unique union of electronica, subtle beats, epic orchestral soundscapes and sonic experimentation.

Ned studied composition and electronics at Trinity College of Music in London and began his musical career drumming for Neneh Cherry. He then formed cult acid jazz band D-Influence, co-writing and co-producing their first album, which is when Chris and Ned forged a working relationship. Ned then branched out into work which straddled the electronic, dance and classical worlds. His tracks with Robbie Rivera twice topped the US dance chart and also hit No.1 on the UK club charts, whilst his classical performance pieces have been staged at venues including the ICA and the Barbican.

Chris Hufford is well-known in the music industry as the manager of Radiohead, Supergrass and Gemma Hayes, who features on this album. What might not be so well-known is that he produced early tracks by artists including Radiohead, a group he would help to steer to massive global success.
