Anna Fruit is a Russian producer and disc jockey with a wealth of talent, based in Moscow she has steadily been releasing music on the likes of Teklife, Hyperboloid, Med School, Sequel One Records and Black Marble Collective. Her own musical outlook is not stereotypically perhaps what you might expect from someone in this part of the world but over the years she has become a pioneering force in jungle, footwork and drum 'n' bass in the present. Having discovered Ableton live during her time at Moscow State university she then pursued an education in sound engineering and has since gone on to produce electronic music for television and video games beyond her own independent output.
A fierce talent with a passion for discovery and expression, she has become one of the most innovative and inspiring figures to emerge from the Russian electronic music scene in recent times, bringing with her a new take on the preconception of genre and style in the musical community.
We invited Anna to select eight tracks, originally of footwork but somewhere along the way this mutated into 160bpm experiments and beyond. Just how we like it.
Dj Rashad- Ccp
When I hear this tune, I only want to smile and dance like a weirdo, thinking about flowers and rainbows. Dj Rashad’s music is very inspiring, so many different moods in his work! So sad that he passed early. Rest in peace, DJ Rashad.
