About Anja Schneider
Anja Schneider is the mobilee records founder, broadcaster, internationally renowned DJ and producer once labeled a “perpetual motion machine”, and one of the hardest working individuals in the business. From her beginnings in radio to the ‘Hi Five’ anniversary year of mobilee, her ascension through the ranks has been fuelled by her strong work ethic, sharp tastemaker instinct, charming personality and innate musicality. Starting out as a producer for KissFM, Anja became a radio persona in her own right in 2000 for Fritz Radio. Armed with an engaging presentation style and impeccable taste, Anja’s ‘Under the Blue Moon’ program – which still airs to this day – resonated with Berlin’s music-loving masses and propelled her forward into a career as a club DJ.
After her first forays into production in 2004, Anja joined forces with Ralf Kollmann to found mobilee records the following year. Anja’s keen ear defined the emergent imprint through its early releases, unearthing talented newcomers such as Sebo K and Pan-Pot, and paving the way for her celebrated mobilee debut with Sebo, Rancho Relaxo. Harnessing her unique interest in collaborative creativity, Anja’s list of studio partners has grown to include the likes of Paul Brtschitsch, Marco Resmann, and Lee Van Dowski. Anja’s 2008 opus, her debut album Beyond the Valley, was released to critical acclaim, with tracks “Belize” and “Safari” dominating Charts and dancefloors worldwide. Alongside her original work, an extensive list of remixes for labels such as Dessous, Crosstown Rebels, and Diynamic now line the annals of her impressive discography.
