Hardgroove welcomes back ANNĒ for five intricate techno cuts

ANNĒ‘s second release for Ben Sims‘ legendary Hardgroove imprint arrives as the Greek artist’s star is fully in ascendance. Having chalked up releases for OutOf Place, Soma and Hardgroove sister label Symbolism in recent years, 2023 has seen her develop a hefty touring schedule across the EU and beyond.

Kicking off with the formidable groove of ‘Peacock Feathers’ with its clipped vocal sample and staccato stabs, the ‘Distill’ EP doesn’t mess about. ‘Roller’ follows as if it was a DJ’s transition, just denser and with a pleasing swagger and swing throughout. ’80’s Revisited’ keeps the pace, but musically heads in a more sinister direction before the title track emerges with anthemic intention. Closing out is ’60’s Style’, a track that shows intensity, tempo, class and melody can co-exist gracefully.
