Known for her work with producers like Falty DL, Starkey, and Ital Tek, the vocalist/instrumentalist Anneka is now working on her own EP. Based in Brighton, her past work with bass/electronica producers has meant she's appeared on Radio 1, Xfm and 6music. She also joined Starkey and Reso in the “Build The Beat” challenge set by Mary Anne Hobbs to create a song from scratch in two hours on her BBC Radio 1 Show, live from the legendary Maida Vale studios.
