Anna Wall (GB)
Ask any well-known DJ, artist or producer the secret of their success and chances are that hard work will be pretty high up their list of essentials. Anyone who knows Anna Wall will know that this is one of the many characteristics that defines her, and now, after years of working her way up the underground ranks, it looks as if years of graft are starting to pay dividends. Since first getting to grips with decks at the age of 19, Anna has developed a reputation and keen following in her native London and university town of Newcastle. Playing classic and contemporary house and US garage and with a strong affinity with the roots of both, Anna’s broad knowledge of the history of dance music sets her apart from the hundreds of unimaginative, chart-championing DJs that plague the scene. Anna’s international break came in 2011 when she was recruited as resident DJ for Croatia’s Yacht Week, playing alongside CR2's Dan Castro for an epic 7 days 7 nights. Since then, she has been booked alongside some of the world’s most respected DJ talents, with the last few years seeing Anna DJ in the impressive company of MK, Robert Owens, Norman Jay, Inland Knights, Soul Clap, Adam Shelton and Jordan Peak. Anna finest moment to date came back in March, when she played for Mixmag’s DJ Lab live stream at their penthouse in Miami alongside techno pioneer Kevin Saunderson and Miami’s own Treasure Fingers; an incredible achievement in its own right and one about which she is extremely proud. Now signed to Colluded Talent’s agency (the same agency, lest we forget, as godfather of house Frankie Knuckles) and with forthcoming releases on Gotta Keep Faith (Italy) and Swink Music (UK) the next few months and years look set to propel her to new levels of acclaim.
