#SlamRadio - 514 - Annē (2022)

Updated: Oct 17, 2023


Another mix I found by just scrolling through my timeline on Soundcloud. I'm not familiar with neither names, be it Annē or SlamRadio. I do believe we still have Slam FM in the Netherlands as a radio station, but that's not the same as the one you are about to listen to. But it doesn't really matter, does it? It's all about positivity and the music that gives us goose bumps. And the mix by Annē certainly does that. I went in blindly, and the result was me enjoying the mix thoroughly. I do love a bit of Techno, and if it is very minimal, I do love it. Not too much fucking about, straight into the music and the darkness it generates.. that's my idea of heaven.

I do recognise Slam from seeing them on the 'guess the song' series by whatever channel it is on YouTube (I've seen all the episodes, but the name just slipped out of my mind). But Annē is a new name in my books, and after hearing her mix for the first time, I knew it was going to be a name to look out for. And the funny thing is that we have only been to Thessaloniki about a month ago, and that's where she is from, and she is hailed as a promising upcoming act. Well, she won me over with the 514th edition of the SlamRadio series.


This mix is truly astonishing. This is the kind of Techno I truly admire, and could dance to throughout the night. Especially in Greece, if the weather isn't as bad as it was a month ago (massive stormfront destroyed our holiday plans from day one). A nice drink, nice environment, massive speakers, and just being in Greece is awesome, but hearing these tunes just makes everything better. Hell, it could even be torrential rain, hailstorm, thunder and lightening, snow, or 50 degrees Celsius... it wouldn't stop me dancing!


But which tunes are in Annē's mix? Well, these ones to be precise:


  1. Deepchord - Mapping

  2. Nicolas Vogler - Warehouse Jazz

  3. Annē - Rosette

  4. Annē - 1990

  5. Annē - Pulsar

  6. Arkan - No Sleep

  7. Mode_1 - Scripts

  8. Mathys Lenne - 206 Turbo

  9. Nicolas Vogler - The Gateway

  10. 18:18 - Primal Instincts

  11. Chontane - Chrome Foil

  12. Marco Lenzi - The Loop Of Love

  13. Gaetano Parisio - Sibylia

  14. Chontane - Invisible Guest

  15. Danny Casseau - Turn Tracks

  16. Habgud - Overthinking On Company Time

  17. Technasia - Fusin

  18. Undivulged - Koud Gemaakt

  19. SERAJ - Scale

  20. Cleric x Habgud - Canggu Pole

  21. Annē - ID

  22. Albert Zhirnov - Panzertrain

  23. Maxx Rossi - Twenty Four Seven

  24. Rove Ranger - Seventh Wave


Don't know if the tracklist is 100% correct, but if it is, thanks to the one sharing it on Soundcloud. If not, well, sorry about that. But to be brutally honest, I wouldn't even know any of the names on this tracklist anyway. It's only because of her mix that I've even know of the name Annē. But she has left a mark on me, a positive one.


I'm in awe of this mix. It is very smooth, and very sensual from time to time, but it can be brutal too. There are songs in this mix that remind me of the Millennium years, Techno that was released toward the end of the 90s and early 2000nd. Not a pure nostalgia trip, but I do get those vibes when listening to her mix.


And that's an added bonus. The tracks are all solid as a rock, and she mixed all these 24 records together beautifully. I've got no negative feedback, only love and appreciation. My way of showing it, is by reviewing it (which I have done now) and by listening to this mix multiple times a week. Yes, this mix might have been a year old when I discovered it, but that doesn't mean it's old. On the contrary, it's fresh and very new sounding in my ears (with a sprinkle of the sound from the Millennium years).


I do love this mix, and at the moment it's my favourite Techno mix. Could this be my favourite Techno mix of 2023? Yes, it was released last year, but I only found it a few weeks ago. Give me a break.


But Annē , keep those beats coming. Keep those songs and mixes coming. I do need more mixes like this one.


Best record? The last one. What a way to end your mix! On a very awesome track. It's like you've danced for an hour, it's time for you to relax slightly. That track has got 1994 vibes all over it. Don't know why, but it does.
