Named after the Polish word for 'roots', this great new EP finds Anii threading her way in between subtle deep house and techno folds. Polish music, tribal percussion and elegiac melodies merge wonderfully. Born in Poland and now operating out of London, Ania Iwinska has had previous releases on top labels like Stil Vor Talent, Polymath and Sincopat, but now makes her debut on Cologne powerhouse Kompakt. From the chugging, brooding dancefloor drama of "Working The Root" that will hypnotise you into submission, to the tension and full-on suspense of the title track. Be assured that more late night moodiness awaits on "Cyganka" incorporating traditional strings and Ry Cooder like guitars on this hazy and esoteric trip into the deep.
Next up on Alex Niggemann's Aeon Audio is London-based DJ and producer Anii with her mystical Magic EP. Since arriving in London from her native Poland, she's earned a solid reputation for playing high quality melodic techno and has appeared on revered imprints including Kompakt and Polymath. She explains that she had been working on "Magic" for the last couple of years and that it's a project she stopped and started again many times. The hard work certainly paid off as this track is a spellbinding expression in dancefloor drama that's builds in suspense and tension, enrapturing you with its hypnotic qualities. MeMeMe boss Man Power's tripped-out remix up next ventures into wacky cosmic territory and ascendant producer Kiwi's rendition of "Trojan Horse" goes for a psychedleic nu-disco terrioty as Red Axes or Moscoman.
