Listen to ANOTR’s debut album ‘The Reset’

Share

For those that missed it back in November, ANOTR release their highly-anticipated debut album ‘The Reset’.

We’ve been catching up on albums released towards the end of the year in our Christmas break and we’ve been thoroughly enjoying the twelve-track kaleidoscopic trip through house, disco, funk and beyond, which is out now.

A duo at the heart of Amsterdam’s electronic music scene in more ways than one, Jesse van der Heijden and Oguzhan Guney, aka ANOTR, continue to elevate and evolve as a pairing cultivating and curating new shades of house music. Having established their own idiosyncratic sound with stand-out productions across a variety of leading labels, the duo’s own imprint, No Art, is their musical home and their primary focus of attention, creating unique live experiences across Europe within extraordinary spaces and venues while delivering a wealth of quality material via their main label and various sub-imprints.

Heading up undeniably one of the most talked about collectives within house music right now, and following on from their sold-out debut festival alongside appearances for Circoloco and Solid Grooves at DC10 and Music On at Pacha in Ibiza, the No Art founders turn their attention to their most significant release to date. A project which has developed, blossomed and evolved across two years of meticulous recording, tweaking and testing, ANOTR released the very first LP on No Art: ‘The Reset’.

“At the start of the pandemic, with clubs closed and our usual sources of inspiration in the nightlife scene put on hold, we started searching for inspiration closer to our hearts. This exploration led to us creating and curating a mix of the music we normally played in our sets with the music we grew up with and listened to across disco, funk, jazz, and indie. Working together with vocalists, instrumentalists and musicians, we have shaped a more organic approach to creating music with an emphasis on the interaction between artists, creatives and our fans which formed the foundation of our album.” ANOTR.

A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
