Recent years have seen the talented Brazilian-born artist ANNA reach new heights with productions such as ‘Hidden Beauties’ and her powerful remix of Jon Hopkins ‘Singularity.’ Garnering acclaim from every corner of the industry, and achieving large streaming numbers on Spotify.
New music from ANNA has been huge in festival sets for many world-leading techno DJs all summer. Then there was the richly deserved Essential Mix for the BBC that started 2019 off right, as the Brazilian distilled 20 years of DJing experience into an inspiring two-hour techno masterclass.
DJ Mag rightly recognized her talents, putting her on the cover of their North American edition in February, a nod to the breakaway impact she’s had on that region.
