Anz

Hope Works - Saturday Night - Saturday Night

Anz is a DJ and Producer based in Manchester, renowned for her genre-spanning productions and mixes. She unearths the links between Electro, UK Garage, Jungle and more, underpinning a versatile take on contemporary UK club music that is as bright as it is unpredictable.

In the summer of 2017, Anz’ self-titled debut EP was championed by fellow UK club figures for its playful high energy sound, a formula that she refined for her second EP ‘Invitation 2 Dance’ (2 B Real, 2019). Distinguished by her unique style and an unparalleled danceability, Invitation 2 Dance garnered fans across the board.

Amongst compilation contributions for the likes of Discwoman and remixes for Houndstooth and XL Recordings, in 2020 Anz joined UK stalwarts Hessle Audio for her third full EP. Three tracks of dark hoovers, wiggling basslines and sharp vocal cuts, Loos In Twos (NRG) was a ruffneck ode to the club, working its way into countless DJ sets and end of year lists.

A salvo of standout mixes and her acclaimed NTS Radio residency saw Anz win DJ Mag’s 2020 ‘Breakthrough DJ’ award, and an invitation to join BBC Radio 1’s Dance Residency line-up in March 2021 soon followed. Taking on monthly shows with two of the UK’s most respected broadcasters, Anz has cemented her position as one of the UK’s most exciting and hard-working young selectors.

From her dubs mixes to her award winning NTS show, guest mixes for Mary-Anne Hobbs to her new Radio 1 Dance residency; a set from Anz offers a glimpse of the musicality that informs her productions. It doesn’t matter when or where, Anz mashes down disparate styles with infectious joy and mystifying ease, making her a fantastic addition to our No Bounds 2021 lineup.
