OBI BLANCHE, Finland (Tigerbeat6)
Since the release of Anika’s controversial debut in 2010, produced by Portishead’s industry anarchist, Geoff Barrow, she has been infiltrating the club circuit, spinning politically infused, off- beat New Wave, Cold, Punk and Hiphop.
Hitting the wall that was playing 1am club sets, Anika teamed up with Finnish techno, hiphop beat- maker, Obi Blanche, to add beats and bass, and create edits of the past, in an attempt to educate the house heads of the present.
Leaving the laptop at home, the 2 will remix live, using just an SP-404 sampler, vinyl and cd, w/live percussion, synth and vocals, rescuing the ‘non-danceable’ wealth of the past and bringing it to a club environment.
