ANNA Announces Date for Second Essential Mix Release

Four years after ANNA dropped her successful Essential Mix, she’s back for round two.

Essential Mix 1

In 2019, ANNA released her first Essential Mix—a two-hour techno set that showcases her skills as a DJ and producer. The mix is full of energy and drive, with a strong focus on driving beats and melodic elements. She expertly blended together a variety of sounds to create a cohesive and exciting mix.

The mix kicks off with a bang with “Galactic Highways” by ANNA. The powerful, driving techno anthem sets the tone for the rest of the mix. ANNA then takes listeners on a journey through a variety of techno subgenres, including acid techno, melodic techno and industrial techno. She also includes a few of her own remixes, including Jon Hopkins‘ “Singularity.”

Essential Mix 1 is full of highlights, but standout tracks include “Project Zeus (Jay Clarke Remix 1)” by Dense & Pika, “Third Floor” by Christian Smith & Wehbba, “Spectral” by ANNA and “Portable Paradise” by ANNA. After this energetic showing, fans can’t wait to see what she brings with round two.


ANNA is a Brazilian DJ and producer who has been making waves in the techno scene for a number of years. She started DJing at the tender age of 14.
