LISTEN: EXCLUSIVE ANUSKHA MIX

Vocal bass duo Anushka get us ready for the weekend with a mix of their favourites.

Anushka

Brighton pair Anushka (not to be confused with the female DJ of the same name) have been making wave sin their hometown for some time now – we’re expecting a very imminent splash in London. Their coolly sophisticated meld of electronic bass rhythms and enticingly soul-tinged vocals convinced Gilles Peterson to snap them up for his Brownswood label after he played their debut single ‘Yes Guess’ on his Radio 1 show – before it was even mastered.

Max and Victoria, the duo behind the delicious sounds, gift us a mix to get us into the weekend mood and let us into their world.

What’s your idea of a perfect summer night out?

Max: Brighton beach. Bit bait but it’s true, I rate it.

Victoria: Yeah, I’d have to agree, you can’t beat Brighton in the summer! Too many good memories!

How did you two meet?

Max: Our mutual buddy Tom Speak, who ran tonnes of nights in Brighton. He brought her round the studio and she never left. Hahaha.

Victoria: Brighton is so small everyone in the music scene there is connected in one way or another. It all started with a slice of cake and a mad dash back to Yorkshire, right, Max?

Who do you namecheck as your influences?

Max: for me It’s a lot of older music from Detroit via a lot of newer music from the UK. Theo Parrish, Tessella, Guy Andrews, Dauwd…

Victoria: I love Lauryn Hill; Erykah Badu always smashes it musically and lyrically. The New Amerykah part one and two have been massive influences. Also Kate Bush, she is just so different.
