In an age where the realms of electronic music have become completely saturated, true musical integrity and originality are fast becoming the key indicators of future successes. Anna Zmijewska a.k.a Chloe Martini has got these in abundance.
Born in Warsaw, Poland, her interest in music had its tender beginnings during her teenage years, when she began to compose instrumental piano pieces that drew inspiration from the Japanese composer, musician and singer, Ryuichi Sakmoto. From there she started to develop an interest in electronic music, experimenting with different textures that would later form the basis of her soulful signature sound. Following the release of her wildly popular remixes of Destiny's Child, Sia, Rufus and Pusha T, the young Polish producer was quick to be picked up by established DJ's and producers, including Snakehips who featured her remix of Brownstone - 'If You Love Me' in their top 10 classic Hip-Hop remixes of all time.
Now boasting hundreds of thousands of plays on SoundCloud, and over
twenty-three thousands subscribers, Chloe has, in the space of a year,
become one of the most hyped new upcoming producers around. With
performances over 2014 at Sweden's Way Out West Festival and Heineken
Open'er Festival in Poland, as well as shows in Germany, Amsterdam,
South Korea and Taiwan under her belt, the stage is now well and truly
set for her debut EP 'Private Joy'.
The opening track 'Get Enough', a sophisticated and smooth R&B jam that screams talent well beyond the years of this young Polish producer, has already been premiered on Annie Mac's 'Bedtime Radio 1' mix, sparking a fresh excitement amongst her ever growing fan base. If this wasn't enough, the track has been gaining the attention of the other big tastemakers in the industry, including the likes of Hudson Mohawke, Bondax and Eton Messy whose all outspoken support bodes well for any potential future collaborations.
Eton Messy - "All over this."
Kartell - "This is honestly pure gold."
Friend Within - "Very nice track... reminds me of 80s soul which is niiiice"
With recent spins on BBC 1Xtra, an EP soon to be released, and her first London show at Plan B Brixton on 20th February, the future is undoubtedly looking very bright for the mesmeric Chloe Martini.
