As a producer, live performer, label founder and multimedia artist, Willis Anne has made himself synonymous with experimentation and free form expression under an electronic backdrop. From his expansive live jams to projects born through his label, LAN, the multi-faceted artist channels a free spirited energy in all his outputs. Through his label, he’s created a live performance playground, brimming with intriguing explorations into abstract sounds from an array of artists.
It’s on his own label, as well as outings on Nous and Berceuse Heroique, that Willis Anne journeys into the depths of obscure and innovative electronic music, producing tracks that range from club-ready and leftfield, to hypnotic and deep. He returns to his “regularly irregular” label for his latest release, I’m the same distance as you, harnessing its unconventional ethos to create an EP of ambient experiments, sizzling jazz breaks and floating percussion. ‘a/b = d/d’ is a dreamy, percussive take on jazz, with soothing sultry chords and claps that go on a wild dance with the drums.
I’m the same distance as you will be released soon on LAN.
