Anouka started a year ago with her first sets on Soundcloud and the response was incredible - building her fan base consistently. Her debut EP "Traveller" is released on SOSO, the label that she runs together with Zusammenklang and Oliver Schories. It will be available digitally and on vinyl and includes two remixes by Anoukas favourite producers. The EP reflects what Anouka lways tries to express in her sets: Showing that melancholy and happiness are very close together and they can work harmoniously. She recorded the vocals for both tracks by herself, which was challenging yet very rewarding. Frequent Traveller kicks things off nicely with its melancholic moodiness shining through as we meander effortlessly through Berlin inspired melodies, while the sultry vocal sits wonderfully on top adding an extra layer of depth.
Christopher Schwarzwalder is on remix duties, and from the off creates tension as this atmospheric rework subtly growls as it grooves. Its sparseness is the key here, as this restrained gem works its magic. Liberty is next as it tinkles away, creating a warm glow, and its caressed with its spoken French vocal, creating an air of sophistication. And rounding things off nicely is the Midas 104 Remix. This mystical touch up takes the energy levels up a notch, but increases the melancholy further and adding an air of just the right amount of wonkiness and quirkiness.
