Dark techno producer ANAKIM has announced details of his forthcoming project, a two-track EP entitled Heightened Sensitivity. The long-awaited project is out now via mau5trap.
“The concept of this EP is to do with spiritual awakening,” says the Los Angeles based producer and DJ. “A major stage in spiritual awakening is a stage of ‘heightened sensitivity’ where one may feel a bit more in tune with nature, see a oneness in all things. You may also get quite emotional on hearing beautiful music or looking at a wonderful sunset. You may also start to see auras and orbs or hear sounds that others cannot hear. The title track was my depiction of this concept. Ascension, the extremely hard-hitting B-side is actually my favorite track on the EP. Ascension is the process of spiritual awakening that moves you into a higher level of consciousness”.
The EP release follows the recent mau5trap takeover last weekend at ‘Day Trip’ – the newest weekly “Sunday Funday” party in Hollywood, California at Academy LA, where fellow label artists like ATTLAS and No Mana hit the decks alongside ANAKIM, performing a slew of mau5trap classics.
Best describing his music as a wealth of “intergalactic underground sounds,” Anakim’s mysterious sonic tones are the perfect accompaniment for interstellar travel. Hailing from California, the producer has released singles on Artist Intelligence Agency, Krafted Underground, Deer Dear Records, Understated Recordings, and in the past two years has made his debut at Coachella Music Festival’s ‘Yuma’ Tent, Holy Ship 9.0, the Fonda Theater in Hollywood, and The Observatory in Orange County, California.
The LA tastemaker also holds a residency at the beloved dance music sanctuary in Los Angeles – Sound Nightclub, playing alongside favorites like Sharam, Lane 8, Yotto, Jeremy Olander and more.
