Boomkat Product Review:
Manny dance dynamo Anz shells 20 of her in-demand grime/garage/jungle/juke dubs in a special tape edition for Finn’s 2 B Real
Cooked up circa the release of Anz’ wicked ‘Invitation 2 Dance’ EP in spring 2019, the session is testament to the pivotal DJ/producer’s rudegyal style snd energy, constantly switching up/down from bumping broken beats thru sparking 2-step electro, mutant ‘ardcore, bullish Bassline and nitro-injected Ghettotech. Properly primed for party season, the mix also serves as a warning shot for Anz’ upcoming manoeuvres with a Shaolin-level order of DJs set to dominate Manchester’s club life in 2020. More on that in due course.
End to end the mix is pure fire and pieced together with the skills that have earned Anz a deadly reputation over the past few years, as heard in her B2B sets with everyone from Finn and Tom Boogizm to DJ Q. The first side sees her limber up with a relatively slower slew of garage, broken beat and grime mutations with one foot in the ‘90s and the other in 2019, before she keeps toeing the gas to take in her special brand of R&G blends alongside Reese-powered proto-grime and a hot-footing Vince Staples edit, and eventually cutting the fuck loose with nutty mentasms, coiled jungle and an unmissable juke flip of Ella Mai.
Of course you trust us, but if not - 10K listens and 100 commenters on Anz’ soundcloud for ‘Spring/Summer Dubs 2019’ surely proves that this mix has got legs. It’s only her 2nd physical release, too, and thus a perfect stocking filler for your favourite raver (along with a few cinnamon-flavour Garys and a reusable Evian bottle).
