Japanese DJ and producer ANRI has been honing her craft since the age of 18 when she moved from her hometown of Yokohama to Tokyo where she quickly became a regular at clubs such as Womb, Ageha, and Air. Following a period living in Melbourne, she now lives in Berlin where she holds a residency at Chalet with her monthly Moshi Moshi Techno Nacht party and is also a resident of the quarterly Tokyo Redlight party at Salon zur Wilden Renate.
When and where was the mix recorded and what was the idea behind it?
I recorded this set at my friend's place, on her CDJ 2000s and with a Pioneer DJM800 mixer. When I make a podcast I always set out to tell a story, I like to weave transitions between light and dark as two opposite sides of beauty.
How did you choose the tracks to include?
I like to go between dub and techno, I am inspired by my favorite artists who have similar taste and artistic concepts.
What gigs have you played recently / are you playing at in the near future?
I played a fashion week after party for a Berlin-based Italian designer, Atelier About. I find the crossover between music and fashion very intriguing; designers are passionate about their work and also identify themselves by their creative output. I also played at a masked ball party during the Venice Carnival which was really interesting. The whole party was filmed for an art-movie, but there was no acting involved, I just played as I always do and had fun with the crowd.
