After hitting a milestone 100 records on Speicher series before closing out the year, Köln’s Kompakt Recs returns with a fresh face dishing out the same impactful sound. The Barcelona-based Brazilian producer has cut her teeth on labels like Tiga’s Turbo Recordings, Solomun’s DIYnamic, and others; Anna hits a milestone on the legendary techno imprint.
I can safely say that Kompakt has always been in my crate. – Anna
An entrancing A-side ‘Hidden Beauties’ layers dramatic cosmic jabs on top of a percussive bass-layered drum line. Made for the dancefloor, Anna’s readiness to dish driving techno is evident right off the bat. On the backside, ‘The Dansant’ offers a gritter compliment. Blending synth rages with rising and falling kicks, the track is a late a nacht anthem.
As a solid fixture among leading labels, media, and DJ sets across the globe, it’s safe to say Anna is a welcome act here to stay. Add this twelve inch as a dependable weapon for the coming season.
