Thursday March 7th, Helix Music and City At Night present "STASIS" featuring ANNA.
ANNA (Kompakt, Drumcode, Turbo, Rukus, NovaMute)
As one of Brazil's finest exports, Anna is quickly climbing the ranks with her seductive yet heavy-hitting brand of techno. ANNA creates success out of everything she turns to whether producing originals for well-respected labels, remixing top-flight acts or moving dancefloors the world over. ‘Hidden Beauties’, her track on Kompakt’s revered Speicher series, had a seismic impact. It was played everywhere from Panorama Bar to Awakenings and supported by the likes of Sven Väth, Marcel Dettmann, Chris Liebing, Richie Hawtin and Adam Beyer. Praised by Pitchfork and selected by Mixmag as one of the best tracks of the year. What followed has been a slew of top-shelf releases on some of the world’s most respected techno imprints, with critically acclaimed EPs on NovaMute and Clash Lion and a remix for Scuba’s SCB project on Hotflush. No surprise Adam Beyer took notice, selecting ANNA’s ‘Portable Paradise’ for inclusion on his acclaimed Drumcode A-Sides. It’s a fitting pay-off for the artist who has been DJing since she was 14 years old, cutting her teeth spinning at her father’s nightclub in the outskirts of Sao Paolo. Her journey since then has been marked by passion, hard work and unrelenting dedication to her craft. 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. You can see this when she plays – a skilled and accomplished selector, her performances are energetic and captivating affairs. Gigs at the legendary Warung and D-Edge in her home country are the stuff of legends, while globally she’s in ever-increasing demand playing everywhere from Movement Detroit, Awakenings, Tomorrowland Festival, DC10 Ibiza, Rex Club Paris and countless other hotspots. Further highlights to come for ANNA this year include a follow up EP on Speicher titled ‘Remembrance’, alongside and a stellar remix of Jon Hopkins ‘Singularity’ on Domino, both stand as arguably some of her strongest work to date.“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.
Stasis is a state of equilibrium or balance. Our thought process behind the nomenclature is that we want everyone to feel balanced or in a state of inner peace when they come to our events. The main goal for our events is to create a vibe and atmosphere in which people from various demographics can come together and dance in perfect harmony without any negativity or animosity. A biological ecosystem has several organisms living together and pursuing common goals such as adaptation, growth and evolution. Conversely, the organisms that are resistant to change, or are poor at adapting fail and become extinct. This is where we can draw stark parallels in our music scene. Like a biological ecosystem, we firmly believe that Ottawa’s underground scene is a musical ecosystem. It requires a concerted effort from everyone (companies and supporters), to throw quality events, support events as quality clientele and to think progressively to establish prosperity in our music ecosystem. Being vindictive and predatory is counter-productive to the potential growth of Ottawa’s underground music scene. We truly believe that great strides have been made in the city over the last few years. We Helix Music, believe we can provide another cog to the wheel of success in Ottawa’s underground music culture. This is the foundation of our company and our events alike. It is all about the love of music. Music is what we are for and we want to see positive growth from Ottawa’s underground scene as a whole.
