Debut EPs are a big milestone for any artist, but for Anaïs, the release of her debut Badgyal EP on Deep In The Jungle last week was something special. Packed with heavy wubs, hearty subs and relentless energy, it’s an EP introducing Anaïs to the world with a fat Juno Download number one-smashing wallop.
That being said, if you’re local to Bristol or familiar with the scene, then you most likely were introduced to Anaïs some time ago. As a resident for Lakota and core member of the Invicta Audio crew, she has been entertaining ravers for a few years now. If you were to come across her at an event, then you’ll know about it. Jungle house blends, 4X4 switch ups, 99BPM madness – you name it, Anaïs has probably warped your mind with it.
But as good of a DJ she is, Anaïs has been battling to make a name for herself in the scene as a music artist. Her debut EP is more than just a release, it’s a statement of intent from an artist who has so much motivation to learn, and it’s a calling to females out there who want to produce but are unsure of their credentials.
