Current track: ANNA - 'Odd Concept' [Diynamic Music]
Brazil-born and Barcelona-based, ANNA is in high global demand – creating success out of everything she turns to whether producing originals for well-respected labels, remixing top-flight acts or moving dance floors the world over.
Recent releases on the likes of Tronic, Yoshitoshi, Terminal M plus a tech house signature etched on remixes for NERVO through Ultra Records and Gorgon City through Virgin EMI are cementing ANNA’s rightful place at the forefront of dance music and a credibility validated around the world after years of dedicated hard work and uncompromising dedication.
ANNA firmly believes that everyone has a purpose, and at the age of 14 she found her own calling; growing up behind the controls of her father’s popular nightclub in rural Brazil, absorbing the clubbing atmosphere and developing a strong connection to music.
Having not much of a reference point for underground music in her rural DJ booth, it took moving to Sao Paulo for ANNA to dive in to the electronic music scene - quickly joining a local booking agency and getting to grips with producing her own original tracks. Hard work often isn’t glamorous, especially in the face of financial difficulties and playing for free at a young age, but ANNA’s persistence and love for what she does began to pay off as she landed a huge residency at D-Edge, a global stronghold for quality music in Sao Paulo.
Early production support came in the form of Christian Smith and his renowned Tronic label, where ANNA is still a regular collaborator. After meeting Christian once he relocated to Brazil, “Behind The Groove” was a name establishing release in 2011, with highly acclaimed follow ups on Kraftek, Bla Bla, Witty Tunes and Toolroom Records reaffirming her deft studio talent.
Continuing with a relentless touring and production schedule, she is intent on exceeding expectations in all aspects of music. Performing to packed crowds in her home of Brazil, Greece, Hungary, France, South Africa, Germany and even China, ANNA expertly draws party goers in to a frenzy.
ANNA also graces the Beatport Top 10 sales charts on a staggeringly regular occurrence and has enjoyed heavy endorsements over the years from the who’s who of DJing including Carl Cox, Richie Hawtin and Damian Lazarus with regular airplay through BBC Radio 1.
“ANNA has arrived and is here to stay” according to THUMP, so watch out for a Brazilian whirlwind of grooves coming to rock a dancefloor near you.
