Anthea began to learn the art of DJ’ing back in 1997 and in the intervening years has come up through the ranks demonstrating a subtlety and sophistication that most of her male counterparts can only wish for.
Her keen sense of mood and groove, and sleekly funk-driven productions have seen fledgling efforts debuted on key labels Freak n’Chic, Cecille, Supplement-Facts and Tuningspork – the next year will bring releases on Supernature, and much more.
Like many producers, music had always had a strong presence throughout Anthea's childhood - jamming with her father in a home-based studio, her natural talent found its voice through an Amstrad 8 Track System and reams of tape, the young composer providing the keys to her Father’s bass.
These days, she has developed a distinctive style very much her own – somewhere lodged between house and techno; always deep, tribal and bassline fuelled. Word of her sleek and stylistically funk-driven sound has not only landed her a coveted Ibiza Voice podcast, but steadily spread across Europe.
Her long held love of the studio clearly shows in her collaborations with close friend Alex Celler, and with Werner Niedermeier as JC Freaks. Her alliance with the former shows more than a little musical chemistry between the two – the hit Caedmon Loop stormed dance floors to become one of Ibiza’s best-loved anthems of 2009, whilst work with the latter has supplied several classy EP’s on labels such as Phonica, Mojuba and offshoot Wandering – proving that (if we were in any doubt!) here is a lady who knows her craft.
Having built a stellar reputation as arguably the most in-demand female DJ in London, 2009 saw Anthea step up to a deserved platform. And with an emphasis on creating, not imitating, she has laid more than solid foundations for 2010, and beyond that a neat and inspired future.
