Annie Hall Live At the Batofar
Annie Hall has been steadily carving a name for herself as an artist who enjoys diversity. Born and bred in Spain, Annie started her life as a DJ having had her first encounter with vinyl from her brother who was a reggae, dubs and roots DJ
With a long time passion for music and a love of experimenting with new sounds Annie isn’t constrained by the same boundaries as others. She has released on labels such as Blank Code, Flash Recordings, Semantica Records, Minnuendo, D1 Recordings and Detroit Underground Recordings. ‘I love creating music from raw synthesis and get unique sounds, sometimes really interesting ones.’
With an eclectic taste in music, Annie creates music across the electronic spectrum, from tracks that are experimental taking the listener on a more complex journey, to tracks that take you straight to the dance floor. Her tracks have a feeling of intensity with dark brooding twists while being intertwined with melodies that give them warmth and keep you firmly on the dance floor.
Annie relocated to Windsor in Canada. On the border with the US, just a river separated her home from the Motor City, and with downtown Detroit only five minutes away in a car Annie drew inspiration from the surrounding differing cultures. ‘It was really interesting living in Windsor. There are a lot of creative people over here, and in detroit.’
Being so close to Detroit allowed her to forge close ties with the music community there, becoming part of Detroit Underground. A multidisciplinary arts collective, it functions ‘primarily as a label dedicated to bridging the gap of modern experimental music and Detroit techno.’
Garnering recognition for her unique expression, in recent years Annie has played at Sonar Festival, Detroit Movement Festival and Dommunie in Tokyo. Her DJ sets are tinged with darkness but have a strong Detroit techno feeling with a dynamic vibe.
Always intensively inventive, Annie’s Halls ability to take the listener on a musical journey can only get more exciting and expressive.
Fast forward to now and Annie has moved back to Spain where she is now living again. Since moving back to Europe Annie has been playing live sets in Berlin, France, Sweden and of course Spain. Her live set is a hybrid setup of Modular equipment and machines no laptop in sight.
