Baby Anne biography
Motivated by her good friend DJ Icey, DJ, Producer, Florida's Baby Anne first shimmied behind the turntables in 1992. Soon after meeting at a local Orlando gig, Icey encouraged the fledgling DJ as she educated herself with the tricks of the trade, and shortly thereafter, Baby Anne began getting bookings. As they say, once she bought her first set of Technics SL 1200's, there was no looking back.
Between gigs, Baby Anne began honing her production skills, releasing a number of singles for DJ Icey's Zone Records imprint, including "Trippin' On Da Bass," "Freaks Groove," "Bass Queen," "Abercrombie," "Probe" and "Pulse," as well as producing one-off tracks such as "Body Movin'," "Beat", "Fury" for other labels. Baby Anne's latest single, "Dementia," is the latest track on her new mix CD ASSAULT & BATTERY for Zone Records/System Recordings. It is her signature sound, which fuses Miami bass and electro with funky Breaks, that makes Baby Anne a lot more than "just a DJ," it makes her a hot commodity in the rising Breaks landscape and the reining queen of this genre.
To date, DJ Baby Anne has released six CD compilations: 'Bass Queen In The Mix' (1999), 'Bass Queen In The Mix 2' (2000), 'Dark Side of the Boom' (2001), 'I'm About To Break' (2002), 'Mixed Live' (2003) and Mixtress (2004). Each successive release has demonstrated her increasing prowess behind the decks, including not only her indelible rockin' sound, but at least one of her own productions as well.
