ANJA SCHNEIDER – PROSPERITY (SOUS MUSIC)
After her album ‘SoMe‘ was released to critical acclaim last November, Anja Schneider has kept on creating. The first EP release on new imprint Sous Music is a pounding transcendental techno work, made for 4am raving.
2017 was a watershed year for Anja Schneider; the end of a long successful chapter at mobilee and the beginning of an exciting new era with the launch of Sous. The pivotal change has brought renewed freedom and vigor to the Berlin artist’s creative output. So much so that a new EP ‘Prosperity’, has followed straight after, as Schneider continues her inspired streak of form.
Those expecting a thematic follow on from ‘SoMe’, may be surprised, however. The title track is her grittiest production in years, a trippy techno weapon propelled by a hypnotic vocal and stripped back drum work that’s been highlighting the artist’s sets in recent times. It’s accompaniment ‘Signs’, is deeper and groovier, as Schneider channels Chicago house in her own trademark style – equal parts cheeky and moody.
What comes next for Sous Music? Schneider says it’s an infinite field of possibilities: “My main focus is expressing myself creatively based on my mood at the time. Don’t be surprised if there is a surprise or two coming up,” she says.
