The London-based DJ and producer Anii just put out her ‘Magic EP’ (order here) with brilliant remixes by Man Power and Kiwi on Alex Niggemann’s label AEON after releasing a 3-track all-originals EP on Kompakt earlier this year. Find out more about the up-and-coming lady in our LSD FAZE TIME feature below!
My name is Anna Iwinska but you might know me as Anii. I was born in Bydgoszcz and grew up in Poland. When I was a child my idol was Michael Jackson… lol, because he was such a super star and well he had a new vision on a music. When I was i think 14 or 16, I started to get in to electronic music and started to buy cassettes and vinyl for all the different types of music from proper experimental , electro to dnb. It was then when I realised that this is going to be my world and my happy place and decided to move to London to eventually learn music production which I did later on. Since then I never looked back. One of my best gigs I played was Georgia 4GB Festival. It was so much fun I think people there are like nowhere else and I hope I’ll be back there really soon! One of the best gigs I have been to was Life and Death in 2015 in BPM Blue Venado. I loved every minute of it and I remember every second.
Now I live in London with my lovely flatmates. In my house you can find my decks and a pair of Focal monitors so I can check my mixes form home and make my sets ready and my refrigerator is usually full with vegan food… lol. I enjoy playing games when I have time and eating peanut butter and just spending time with my partner a lot. I can spend hours listening to new music and loops searching for new ideas. One of my favorite places to visit is any Japanese restaurant in London lol, because …hm… because of the food?
On weekdays I try to spent as much time as I can at the studio and catch up on new promos and stuff that are out there and on weekends I usually travel to play.
My favorite song at the moment is Alt-J- Tessellate. A film I watched lately and really liked was Bohemian Rhapsody. The last series I watched and loved was The Sinner on Netflix. I am very inspired by Pink Floyd. My dream is to do what I love for living. My worst nightmare is to have an office job. I love oh… toms… violin sound… bells… chocolate coffee… huggs… sushi… there is so much and hate being cold… and feeling lonely. I am addicted to chocolate and coffee and hugs. I just cannot stop being in trouble all the time and eating chocolate for breakfast. I get totally fucked up, when I drink Tequila. The next day I need to fill my self with dairy free ice cream and pizza… lol.
Local Suicide reminds me of filling up an application at the moment… :).
Tomorrow I go to a studio make some more beats. Next month is Christmas! Next year I‘m releasing my next EP for Kompakt! In 10 years I hope I’ll still be feeling like I’m 16.
If I wasn’t a human, I would be a ferret or a cat. If my life was a Hollywood movie, I would make a biggest rave in a world :). If I could have sex with anyone, it would be hahaha.. im not going to say. If I was a car, I would be a 60s Mustang. If I was a drug I would be something small. If I was an invention, I would be an overdose in sugar intake. If I was an object, I would be a leed. If I could date myself, I would go crazy. If I could play with anyone it would be my best friend and better half. I would like to collaborate with Jim Morrison (but I don’t think that’s possible). If I had only one wish, it would be to make the whole world dance at the same time… and come together. I would never give up my dream, because it’s the only thing I got.
My word of advice to the reader would be to have no regrets ever.
