What sparks your imagination?
You might have seen Anita Vokill at ORANJE in the past. He’s performed twice before as a DJ and in electronic music groups, but never with his solo project. The Anita Vokill project explores the space where Jungle, Reggae, Dubstep, Dancehall, Dub and Drum n Bass meet, putting together a combination of acoustic and electronic elements with a focus on beats, vibes and bass.
Growing up in a creative household, visual and audio arts were always around. He expressed an interest in music and art at an early age and started playing guitar in middle school, enrolling in classes and playing in a garage band. By college, he was into turntables and samplers and now a laptop with 2 midi controllers.
Every song starts with some sort of inspiration; a sound, song, mood, vibe, day-to-day-life…anything really. Anita Vokill recently dropped a digital EP from Boom One Records called “Come Rude Boy“, which features remixes from El Carnicero featuring Mista Chatman (Seattle) on vocals, another from Dubsmith (Philly) featuring Yasus Afari (Jamaica) and B. Davis (Jersey) on vocals. Along with remixes from Elder and Hydrophonics, it’s an international affair.
While he only performs a few times a year to make these appearances special, his future goals are to keep having fun, keep challenging himself, keep learning and hopefully travel. As for performing at ORANJE, he’s excited about the art and music sensory overload. “I’m looking forward to the aspect that you always something new and different at ORANJE, you never know what you will find around the corner.”
