WHO WE ARE
WHAT WE DO
Mass Mercury aka Chris Sanders and Sean Sanders is an American-Finnish, father-son producing team with an extensive background in songwriting and working with major artists. Their songs, written and performed with Finnish artists have reached #1 on the Finnish Dance Chart with many additional chart positions throughout the years.
Growing up in the urban bright lights on the south side of Chicago Illinois, Chris Sanders was raised by his mother who raised two children, worked two jobs and attended college all at the same time. As Mass Mercury, Chris dedicates all of his hard work to his mother. There´s a phrase that Mass Mercury´s mother has always said to him, “Know your failures and correct them, know your accomplishments and accept them.” These words have stuck into Mass Mercury´s head and they still ring true today.
The first real touch with music came in Chris' life while studying in Percy L. Julian High School where he first joined the tumbling team in his Freshman and Sophomore years, but then played in his high school´s Marching band as a Snare drummer in his Junior and Senior years.
After settling to Europe in the early 2000s Chris soon landed a dream job as the main hype MC for Billboard Hot 100 #1 artist, Darude. For the better part of three years touring with Darude took Chris all over the world hyping crowds of the masses.
Since the days of Percy L. Julian High School, rhythms and beats have always followed Mass Mercury throughout his life. In the Winter of 2011, Mass Mercury created WeDrumAsOne drumline in Espoo Finland. Since 2011 Mass Mercury and his drumline have performed on multiple live TV shows, the Helsinki City Christmas parade held annually in the centre of Helsinki, and arena concerts with #1 selling artist in Finland, Robin and the biggest annual charity concert 'Elämä lapselle'.
As a Musician, Chris has appeared on multiple recordings including Annie's album 'Don't Stop' which hit the Billboard Charts twice and reached #15 in the UK Independent Albums Chart. Chris wrote and sang on L.O.V.E. by K-System which hit #1 in the Finnish Dance Chart while the singles for Movetron (Voodoo Man) and Kendi (Connected) also hit charts in Finland peaking at #15 and #16 in the Finnish Singles Charts. I'Dees' debut album, Sweet Confusion, released in 2002, reached #18 in the Finnish Albums Chart.
Since 2019 Mass Mercury has also included Sean Sanders, a trained musician, and producer with a classical background. Their first single together, 'Southern Shores' ft. Emma Gold, was released in the summer of 2019 via Hannu Sormunen's (Tik Tak, Robin) Lasso Entertainment, with distribution via Sony Music.
