Dazed Mix: Anastasia Kristensen
Anastasia Kristensen only released her debut EP, Ascetic, in March, but the DJ and producer has already established a reputation as one of the electronic music scene’s most popular new artists. Raised in Moscow but based in Copenhagen, Kristensen earned her DJing chops both as a resident of the Scandinavian city’s Culture Box venue, and at gigs around Europe, where she was known for her unpredictable sets. This led to the huge number of international bookings that Kristensen now plays, taking her to places as far from home as Hanoi and Bogotá. As a producer, she’d already made killer remixes for the likes of Daniel Avery and Special Request before she fused techno, electro, IDM, bleep’n’bass, and warehouse rave on Ascetic, which was released through Arcola, the recently revived Warp Records sublabel. Her latest remix, a take on Locked Groove’s “Out Of Orbit”, lands on the Sunset Service RemixesEP via Hotflush this Friday.
