She stares out into the ether beyond, contemplating the next direction to take her expectant late-night listeners with her careful track selection and fluid mixing.
It isn’t long before Annie G’s powerful drive to promote the local electronic music scene inspires the next choice, as we drift from intense psy-trance to modern Goa trance, and then on into the more “cheesy” melodic stuff.
I’m going to start to showcase the links I have selected to promote on the blog, and Annie, of early early Saturday morning (we’re talking 3-7 a.m.) audio travelogue “Tea Time With Annie” on CJSW is first up. The other CJSW DJs — from punk players to electro pulsers — can’t help but enjoy tuning into her show, right alongside the following she has cultivated.
“I just want to do what I can to promote the local scene,” she’ll explain earnestly, while prepping in front of her laptop at a coffeeshop, just prior to her weekly show.
Take a look at the area players she has introduced over the airwaves and her devotion to the promotion of local music is more than evident. Of course the community took note, and wasn’t afraid to give back — even in the middle of the night. Humble but determined, she managed to reach her Funding Drive goal of $1,000 with relative ease. Congrads!
Please take special note of the album artwork (top of post) created by Vincent Domazet for Annie’s funding drive mixtape… Did you see the teacups??? If you still want to donate for a copy of that mix (which I can assure you she slaved over for hours on end to offer up only the best) I’m sure that’d be a cinch.
So the next time you’re on your way home from a Friday night of partying… or perhaps cruising around freeways between intimate get-togethers and in need of some throbbing bass and insectazoid rhythm… lock-on to Annie’s show. (Tune in here via CJSW.)
