Brazil-born and Barcelona-based, ANNA is in high global demand - 2018 promises to be ANNA's biggest year yet.
ANNA creates 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 Kompakt Turbo Recordings, Diynamic, RUKUS, plus remixes for the likes of Tiga, Audion and Matador are cementing ANNA’s rightful place at the forefront of dance music and a credibility validated around the world after years of 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 Brazil, absorbing the clubbing atmosphere and developing a strong connection to music. Having not much of a reference point for underground music in her father's nightclub 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.
“Let’s get one thing straight: we f*cking love ANNA and her beats.” Mixmag
Continuing with a relentless touring and production schedule, she is intent on exceeding expectations in all aspects of music. Highlights include performing to packed crowds in her
home country of Brazil where her sets at Warung and D-Edge are part of local clubbing folklore, Carl Cox Revolution at Space, Space Ibiza Closing and Solomun +1, the legendary
Rex Club in Paris, Tobacco Dock in London on NYD, and Australia’s famous Rainbow Serpent Festival. Already in 2017, she has played Paradise @ DC10, Movement Detroit,
Ultra Resistance in Miami, Awakenings Festival, Resistance @ Privilege Ibiza.
“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.
Audiofly are the duo of Luca Saporito and Anthony Middleton. They met and started working together in the spring of 2002 and immediately started a prolific partnership based on their shared music styles and experiences on the DJ circuit.
Their combined talents have created a powerful, experimental and original style of music (a deadly, dirty, jackin, tech meets electronic house) which is very current on the underground club scene.
Although widely regarded as a member of the true A-list of dance music, both in terms of production, DJing and label management, it was a chance meeting led to Anthony Middleton and Luca Saporito, an audio engineer/musician and working dj respectively, becoming Audiofly back in 2002. Middleton was, in typical boffin style, experimenting with live surroundsound while Saporito was acting as in-housemusic selector at prestigious London store Selfridges but the pair decided to down tools and throw everything at their shared love of house music. A bold move, but one which immediately began to pay off. The Audiofly name started to crop up regularly in the London scene and beyond via a series of edits, remixes and releases for underground imprints such as Fantastic Houseand Deleted. This initial hype led to Peace Division and DC10 resident Clive Henry to request an EP for the now legendary Low Pressings imprint. This EP, entitled "Release Yourself" caught many an ear and coupled with the DJs growing reputation as DJs, propelled Audiofly to a new level. Fairly quickly the pair's groovy, melodic and undulating take on house music started to create a huge fan base, both in the press (DJ Magazine featured the duo on a special covermount CD), in clubs (Space Ibiza residency) and finally in production, with uber-imprints Get Physical, Mood Music, Kickboxer and Renaissance calling on their talents.
Now, the duo are pushing their sound even further with a gig diary that takes in the likes of Fabric, Warung, Amnesia and countless other world
reknowned clubs as well as a forthcoming album in the works but they still finding time to develop other artists via their own Supernature imprint.
Only one year old, and Supernature has been a launch pad for artist such as Ali Nasser, Alex Niggeman, Bearweasel, Amelie and Boris Horel and commands the respect of labels ten times its age while their Flying Circus parties have become the highlights of both the WMC and Sonar festivals and their similarly named radio show for Proton Radio is a continued success.
All of this sounds a lot, but Luca and Anthony are veritable steam trains of ideas and projects. Luca's unrivaled enthusiasm, Anthony's ability to think outside the box and an envious amount of talent to draw on mean there's a lot more to come from Audiofly and their "Familia".
