Vijaya Seixas and Shaan Saigol make up the duo Ascendants, with both members having roots in Florida’s dance music scene.
Distinguished by its lack of prejudice and the prevalence of a love for music, the duo curated Neon Liger - one of the only longest running and all inclusive dance parties in the state during its time. Through their work with NEON LIGER, Vijaya and Shaan grew a burgeoning, tight knit community in Gainesville, Florida, which attracted not only the local DJs but many world renowned artists. But there came a time that Vijaya and Shaan sensed a conclusion for NEON LIGER as a weekly event and made the choice to switch their focus to their own music. The debuted at III Points in Miami and have since then released several originals and remixes. With more on the way, Ascendants aim to make an even greater impact on dance music than the two have already contributed.
