London-based ANII has already released with Kompakt, Clash Lion, Aeon, Polymath, Sincopat, and more. Her groove-focused, melodic house sound has taken control of dancefloors for years, and now she’s launching her own imprint.
The new label, ANITIME, will kick off on July 5th with a brilliant three track release from herself, titled ANITIME001 the EP combines original tracks Marching, Little Raving People and My Gravity.
We have ANII on Inflyte for the latest edition of Five Tracks, putting together a list of melodic anthems that often find themselves in her sets, she includes music from Kolsch, Rampa, The Hacker, Third Son, Daniel Watts and REX The Dog.
REX The Dog – Vortex
This track by Jake, one of my friends and another member of the Kompakt family. This is a craft in itself from a modular synth. The top line is fantastic and the ‘Vortex’ vocal of a Darth Vader style character is so well executed. I love this track.
Butch – Countach (Kölsch Remix)
Always a killer! It’s a statement track which is so massive with some big synth sounds it’s really hard to follow it with another. He rolls out a string section and takes it up to a chorus hook that can shake a room, it gives such an intense dramatic effect.
ANII & Third Son – SEM (Daniel Watts Remix)
This is a recent collab track which I made with Third Son. It’s such a good track, but then Daniel Watts took on a full club version which made it into something so amazingly different, with strong bass and a great break down whilst still keeping the sounds from the modular top line of the original. I’ve been playing this one a lot in all my sets recently.
The Hacker – Nothing Lasts
I’ve always been a big fan of The Hacker. I grew up listening to Gigolo Records! This track has amazing tension which builds into a fantastic drive with mad drums. Just close your eyes and rave to this one. Its perfect for it.
Rampa – They Will
Another great track form Innervisions. This track is best when you just close your eyes and let yourself go. The haunting vocal is one of my favs, with all the sounds and textures – and it’s a very driven bassline. What more could you want?
