ANNA - Razor EP
We are ecstatic to welcome ANNA for her first EP on NovaMute.
“It’s such an honor to be working with NovaMute. Daniel Miller is a legend and a few years ago I’d never even imagined this would ever happen, such are the happy coincidences in life! Now we’re here and Razor EP is done and it all feels a bit surreal.”
The first track ‘Razor’, which has already been getting a great reaction when played out, came about while playing with her MKS-80 from Roland, an old synth from 1985 and one of ANNA’s favourites. You can hear the fat and juicy sound on the breakdown and ever-evolving throughout.
‘Escapism’ plays with trippy arpeggios that lay down the atmosphere for the whole track, it feels really dense but still powerful, making use of heavier drum sounds for the groove.
The last track on the EP, ‘Dreamweaver’, is a simple one that always works well on the dance floor. ANNA reworked ‘Dreamweaver’ many times before deciding to strip down the beat and focus on the final sequence; sometimes the simple ideas are the ones that work the best.
ANNA’s debut NovaMute 12” will be released May 25th. Pick up the record here
Forthcoming releases on NovaMute will include new EPs from Charlotte de Witte, Terence Fixmer and Nicolas Bougaïeff.
