Artists
ANNA
The last 18 months 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 recognised 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.

“DJing feels not so much like something ANNA does, but something she is, the art lodged firmly in her bloodstream”
— DJ MAG
Today’s success has been two decades in the making, stretching back to the nightclub her father owned in the countryside outside São Paulo, where she honed her craft as a DJ from the age of 14. Her journey since then has been marked by passion, hard work and unrelenting dedication to her craft. You can see this when she plays ― a skilled and accomplished selector, her performances are energetic, engaging and captivating. Gigs at the legendary Warung, D-Edge and Time Warp Brazil in her home country are the stuff of legends, while globally she’s in ever-increasing demand playing everywhere from Movement Detroit, Awakenings, Tomorrowland, DC10 and Block in Tel Aviv. For an insight into her talents, you only need to check her vinyl DJ set for Cercle from last February, that’s already hit well over two million views. No surprise Mixmag heralded her as one of the best DJs of 2018 in their yearly wrap-up.

“ANNA is one of Brazil’s finest exports and she’s quickly climbing the ranks with her seductive yet heavy-hitting brand of techno”
— MIXMAG

On the production front, she’s dropped critically acclaimed music on virtually every significant label in techno, including Hotflush, Drumcode, NovaMute, Clash Lion, Sapiens, Domino with her Jon Hopkins remix, plus a new original for Tale Of Us on Afterlife. Her relationship with Kompakt continues to reap fruits. Following on from the success of ‘Hidden Beauties’ that was acclaimed by Pitchfork and judged one of 2018’s Top Tracks by Mixmag, she released the stirring ‘Remembrance’ EP, highlighted by ‘When I Am Only A Dream’. In August this year, she released a very special collaboration with Kittin titled ‘Forever Ravers’ ― which is already being heralded as ‘techno track of the year’ by a number of media platforms and certainly an anthem for our times.
Uun
Coming up in the music scene of Kansas City and currently residing in Detroit, Uun crafted his love for the darker edges of sound as a guitarist in multiple bands before turning his focus to techno. Both his early work as a band member and his current work as a techno producer share a common exploration of darkness both in mood and in execution. Hard Wax described Uun's sound as a "straight ahead techno juggernaut."
Uun has releases on many labels including 100% Pure and Dynamic Reflection as well as his own imprint Ego Death, which is a platform for the music created for and from his live PA sessions. The imprint is relatively young yet has already been reviewed in Mixmag and Fazemag, and has received support and play from names such as Paula Temple, Par Grindvik, Bas Mooy, The Advent, Etapp Kyle, Perc, 2000 and One, Rebekah, Truncate, Developer, Drumcell, Alex Bau, and many more artists in the world of techno.
Currently his primary form of performance is a live set consisting of all original material. These performances take his previous skills as a DJ / multi-instrumentalist and blends them with his love of sound design and production all while maintaining an attention to the dance floor
