Anja "womso" is a USSR born, London based music lover, selector, collector, dj and producer raised in Bronx, NYC.
The love for music came around the age of 3 from cutting out plastic records from kids "Kolobok" magazine, same records that were used by spies to carry information during World War 2 and reading decadent Soviet poetry over classical music records and granddad recording that on tapes.
Interest in DJing came in the uni years from hanging out with DJ friends and in 2002 the first pair of decks was bought and the journey started from selecting tracks for house-parties. First club gig happened in 2005 at "Aloe" club in Moscow, at that time the sound was very minimal and cold, reflecting the Russian reality and weather, which changed to a warmer, more housey sound after moving to London in 2006 and working in places like Phonica Records and Resident Advisor.
Currently promoting a mini series of Sunday nights called "Premise" in Dalston's Dance Tunnel and producing music for mapping projections, art and fashion shows, brand ad campaigns and bootlegs for her own record bag.
Anja has a weekly live [email hidden] and 87.7 FM every Saturday 7-9P GMT.
