Anja Schneider will be at the The Steelyard this October for her first Anja Schneider Invites showcase; in an industrial location which is in the heart of our city. She’s curated a lineup with artists and music she’s passionate about, first on the list was Citizenn.
Citizenn is handpicked by Anja as one of those emerging artists she feels embodies the futuristic spirit of electronic music and is acknowledged as one of the most inspiring artists to crop up in recent years. Breaking through with cuts on Kerri Chandler’s MadTech and Waze & Odyssey’s Street Tracks, his stocks rose even further with the recent release of his debut album ‘Human Interface’ on Crosstown Rebels.
Listen to the album stream here:
“I liked him from the very first moment. He has this very deep house understanding with a real cool hard approach to reaching peak time. His musical understanding is outstanding and interesting – a set from Citizenn is a true journey,” Anja tells. “When I first me him we had this lovely “click” moment. I knew we had the same understanding of fun and many laughs in common. He truly is a sweetheart and a damn good producer. I’m excited to see his career growing as it’s only the beginning.”
Here’s a bit of a throwback to the start of 2015, and when Citizenn last played at LWE. Listen to the recording of his set at Village Underground here:
