Awakenings Easter Thursday
Thu Apr 9
She has the electronic music scene's confidence, and she delivers week by week a new definition of what is possible. She welcomes guests like Luciano, Tiefschwarz, DJ T., M.A.N.D.Y., Dirt Crew, Jay Haze, DJ Hell, John Tejada, Tobi Neumann etc and, last but not least, she provides the imperative soundtrack for Saturday nights in Berlin. Anja Schneider has been living in the capital since 1994. In the beginning, she worked as a producer of special features for KISS FM. One of her most successful projects has been the development, conception and realization of "KISS FM Loveboat", which after changing her employer and going to Radio Fritz in 1997 had been developed further. Today it is known as "Fritz Loveradio", and it is getting more and more popular. It is the most spectacular off- and on-air event: 50 internationally renowned DJs play live for 50 hours. In 2003, this project was granted the German Dance Award in the category "Best National Radio Programme". The reason why she's been focusing more and more on being a professional DJ herself for 3 years now, is that she loves to present her favourite records to her friends and other people. Be it in clubs or on festivals, her intention is always the same: to take people on a trip. Since November 2003 until April 2005, she has her first own residency in the Watergate, Berlin - the 'popmobil', which was already one of the established classics in Berlin's nightlife, with selected guests like Jennifer Cardini, Jesper Dahlbäck, Joakim , Audio Werner and many others. Since she started her own label mobilee records in April 2005 she started her own regular party date once a month at WMF Club - Berlin presenting her own label artists and other international guests. With her friend Sebo K., a Berlin DJ and producer, Anja Schneider seems to have a kind of symbiotic relationship. Since June 2004, they have been producing a combination of minimalism, female playfulness, hard acid lines, and dry, groovy beats. "Tonite", the first release by Anja Schneider, has made it into the DJ-charts of Phonique and Ewan Pearson, and PIAS signed a contract immediately. On behalf of PIAS, Anja Schneider compiled and mixed the Loveradio Compilation, a double CD with 17 selected club tracks. Within a short period mobilee records (distributed by WORD AND SOUND) became a well known label all over Europe. Sebo K, Pan-Pot, Exercise One and Anja herself found a platform to release there own music. Mobilee 003 (Anja Schneider & Sebo K - Rancho Relaxo/Side Leaps) reached No. 9 in the Groove Charts 09/2005.
