2016 December 24

Lipstick Disco’s 2016 Christmas musical advent calendar – we’ll be bringing a daily dose throughout December of 24 kick-ass women, who’ve been making and playing kick-ass music in 2016.



No. 23 of our Musical advent, comes from another Berlin stalwart Anja Schneider. As well as touring the world week in, week out, she is also responsible for bringing some of the finest artists to the forefront via her weekly radio show and her supreme quality label Mobilee. Anja’sDance Under The Blue Moon‘ show has been running on Berlin’s Fritz Radio since 2000 and is the longest running underground dance music radio show and airs every Sat from 10pm. Mobilee developed off the back of the radio show, after it was suggested she start up up a label to support all the demos she was receiving – in 2005 the label was born, followed by a booking agency in 2007. Schneider has a wonderful skill for unearthing and supporting new talent, a brief glimpse at the Mobilee and its sister imprint Leena’s back catalogue, displays this; early releases from Maya Jane Coles, Nicole Moudaber, Solomun + other giants of the industry, well before they became the established artists they are today. The label and radio show, give her the platforms to nurture, mentor and support the growth of new, growing and established talents.

Between touring every weekend, running the label, agency, and weekly radio show and being a mother, studio time is rare, but always with magical results. This year however releases have been solid. Schneider started this year with a bang, her first release – ‘Soul Traveller‘ an incredible 3 track EP on her own Mobilee imprint, dropped in Jan. She followed this up in March with a remix for Catz ‘n DogzThe Joy‘ on their imprint Pets Recordings. In June she released ‘Caracas‘ as a solo track on Moon Harbour Recordings as part of their ‘Moon Harbour Inhouse, Vol 7’ compilation. Schneider’s final release of 2016, was once again on her own Mobilee imprint, a beautiful 2 track EP ‘Rain‘ and it’s the B-side ‘Sunny Side Up‘ that we’re serving you up for no. 23 of our advent today.
