A couple of years after winning the Beatport Breakthrough Award in DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs poll, ANNA enters the list at No.95. Known to her parents as Ana Miranda, she went from playing to a 1,500-strong crowd at the age of 14 in her home country of Brazil to fronting DJ Mag North America in 2019. In the interview in that magazine, she talked about how she has had to overcome health problems and career setbacks to get to where she is today.
ANNA has spent lockdown building a new studio in Barcelona — where she has lived since 2015 — with fellow Brazilian techno DJ/producer, Wehbba. In recent weeks the pair have been working on an Anaweh Studio Masterclass online course, sharing production tips, tricks and techniques “from building your set up to finishing a complete track, through methods to put you in the right mindset.” With a sound that marries kinetic grooves with a wealth of emotion, ANNA has also managed to stay connected with her fans during the pandemic, through live streams including her Awakenings set in June and Movement Detroit’s Movement At Home event.
