Exploding onto the UK’s effervescent dance music underground is Anushka - a Brighton based duo made up of producer Max Wheeler and singer/songwriter Victoria Port. Released digitally on 15th April 2013 the Yes Guess EP is a perfect précis of their dynamic, soulful palette.

Drawing on the UK’s rich heritage of scattered snares, sub low rumble and breakbeat culture in its myriad forms, Max has the innate ability to create urgent, compulsively danceable riddims marrying swaggering, boisterous drums and melodic hooks with a refreshing futurism (not unlike those of Jacques Greene or Disclosure) whilst simultaneously paying homage to historic melting pots of innovation such as Detroit, Chicago and London. Layering up Victoria’s delicate, graceful vocals on these foundations, the pair have struck upon a golden formula, as her wistful words elevate their productions to alternative modern classics in the vein of MJ Cole, Breakbeat Era or Freeeze.

The Moodymann-esque ‘Tried & Tried’ – featured on the recent Brownswood electr*c 3 album – hinted at the duo’s enormous potential to conquer the electronic-pop realm, and now the Yes Guess EP fulfils that promise and cements their reputation as one of the most exciting dance acts for 2013.
