An epic moment in the house music calendar awaits. This one-off London exclusive brings to you the album reveal tour of Amsterdam DJ dyad and production masterminds ANOTR.
Known for their fresh and nonpareil take on house music production, Jesse van der Heijden and Oguzhan Guney have established themselves in a lane of their own. They've transcended the typical underground sound and delved into a completely unique world of their a-la-mode vocation.
Their latest release and debut album The Reset is a pristine, 12-track LP that fuses together funky disco house and underlying minimal tones, with features from numerous instrumentalists and vocalists. If you like a catchy, authentic two-stepper, something that you can really groove to and get lost in, this is the album for you.
They’ve come a long way since their first EP release Strobe on DFTD Records in 2015, they’ve DJ’d across globally renowned nightclubs and released impeccable productions on some of the most sought-after labels in the scene. Among them are Solid Grooves, PIV and Hottrax.
In 2017, the Dutch duo made the jump to imprint their unique tenor on the underground scene by creating a label and party of their own—birthing NO ART, an anagram of their stage name. With sellout shows across the board in recent years, it’s safe to say that their groundbreaking sound has captured the hearts of both existing and new house music fanatics.
Marking their territory within the electronic music industry, 2022 has been ANOTR's most exciting year yet and they are sending it off in style with this album tour. What better place to broadcast their brand new beats than at KOKO, a 1,500-capacity club situated in North London known for its epic Audiotechnik sound system and soulful roof terrace. KOKO was the go-to venue of Grace Jones and Prince in the 1980s.
The quirky club goes hand in hand with ANOTR and their idiosyncratic NO ART party. Originally a Victorian theater in the late 1800s, the diverse venue has previously been a cinema and can hold events from intimate live music performances to comedy nights and heavy rock concerts. DJs that have taken to the London club in recent years are Kerri Chandler, Sven Väth, Todd Terje, Lil Louis, and Maceo Plex. Just wow.
