Blanco started as a small side project of Savant in October 2010. One Blanco EP was released, The Mother Of God And A Filthy Whore. After that, Blanco was not heard from for quite some time.
Around mid 2015, Vinter began producing once again under the name "Blanco" despite Savant's success. According to Vinter, there are future plans for Savant releases, an announcement that eased the concerns of fans who had believed Blanco was taking over full-time. Vinter announced that what was originally planned to be a single EP will actually be released as a trilogy of EPs, each with six tracks. The first of these EPs, Bajo, even included three singles.
In October 2015, Vinter announced that Savant would no longer be releasing EDM style music and that, from that point on, Blanco would release any EDM style tracks.
In his press kit, Vinter is described as having Aspergers Syndrome. Within his 2014 MTV Artists biographical profile, he is described as having "struggled in school and life until he was diagnosed with a series of mental conditions -- primarily Asperger's Syndrome."
An official video game titled Savant - Ascent was launched on Dec 4th, 2013. It was developed by D-Pad Studio to be his first video game album.[clarification needed] The game was created in Game Maker for iOS, Android, Microsoft Windows, macOS, and Linux platforms.[not in citation given]
