A Night With... Anja Schneider
A Night With…next welcomes the wonderfully engaging Anja Schneider, who will be presenting us with a beautifully crafted 8 hour set, characteristic of her own charm, depth and impeccable musical taste.
As a producer, radio presenter, label owner and world renowned DJ, Anja Schneider has left quite a fingerprint on the international music scene over the past decade. Launching mobilee records in 2005 with Ralf Kollmann, the label quickly established itself as one of the brightest new stars in Berlin’s glittering galaxy of electronic music labels, producers and DJs. When ‘minimal’ began giving way to a warmer, suppler sound, mobilee was at the forefront of the shift, with a more dark and sensual sound, beautifully moody yet uplifting whilst blurring of the crisp edges of minimal techno.
As well as kick starting the career´s of such artists as Sebo K, Pan-Pot, GummiHz, Marcin Czubala, Exercise One, And.id, Miss Jools, and Dan Curtin, the label’s development has also been responsible for providing Anja with the platform to display her own production skills. The release of her debut album ‘Beyond the Valley’ which she carefully crafted and infused with her own personality, and the success of singles such as ‘Rancho Relaxo’ and ‘Belize’ on the label, have displayed Anja´s ability as an accomplished producer. She continues to forge forward in the studio having now racked up an impressive roster of labels who´ve had the pleasure of releasing her music.
mobilee’s success has allowed Anja to showcase her impressive style as undoubtedly one of the world´s most respected female DJs. Her sets aren’t designed to shock but gradually and beautifully develop, an earthy reinvention of the concept of techno. There´s hardly a dancefloor on Earth that Anja hasn’t supplied the soundtrack to, touring ceaselessly, she has traveled the globe bringing the mobilee vibe to clubbers around the world; soaking up inspiration for new music everywhere she set down. She has made her mark as a regular at the world’s most renowned clubs such as Fabric, Rex and Goa in Madrid and has held residencies at Berlin’s own Weekend and Watergate.
