Listen to my track Caged Bird, released through Lowriders Recordings on their Beatitude Volume Two compilation. I was still called ANIK at the time. Of course, my name has currently changed to Alberta Balsam.
The Lowriders collective are back in town and this time they’ve come strapped with some serious heat in the shape of Beatitude Volume Two. The (funnily enough) second installment in their name your price compilation series that looks to showcase the ridiculous range of styles their roster brings. From beatless, ambient dreamscapes to crunching industrial sounds and grimey synth waves there’s all sounds for all ears and we’re premiering Anik’s dubbed out, garage inflected Caged Bird; a beautiful piece suitable for dance floors and bleary eyed night-busses alike. Aniek de Rooij is mostly known for her productions as part of the experimental electronic pop duo DOOXS.
Lowriders have also provided us with a little background on the female producer too:
“Aniek de Rooij is mostly known for her productions as part of the experimental electronic pop duo DOOXS. The group has been performing across the Netherlands last year with most notably at the
Eurosonic Noorderslag Festival in Groningen. Their music has been gaining traction across Europe too with the ladies playing to crowds in Iceland and beyond. On her solo projects Anik creates an estranging yet familiar blend of House and Techno as well as more atmospheric and organic styles of electronica. Caged Bird is a dancefloor catalyst with hints of UK Garage and Techno. The hypnotizing track is a perfect intro for all that is to come on the compilation and more work from ANIK on our label.”
