Annie Mac Presents 2016
Britain’s premier music tastemaker Annie Mac returns this Autumn with her definitive selection of her favourite tracks from the past year: Annie Mac Presents 2016.
The AMP 2016 compilation will be the seventh in the highly anticipated series, which have topped the iTunes album charts the past four years running. Its release will come hot on the heels of three back-to-back Annie Mac Presents All Day Raves taking place across the UK.
Annie’s AMP live events series has grown from humble beginnings at the small third room in London’s recently closed Fabric nightclub, to curating stages at some of the world’s biggest festivals (from Ultra Festival to Creamfields to Coachella), embarking on nationwide tours in both the U.K and the U.S, and launching its very own ‘Lost and Found’ festival in Malta, now in its second year.
Meanwhile Annie’s career as a globally renowned DJ and broadcaster goes from strength to strength. A certified main stage festival DJ, she is also now Radio 1’s ambassador for new music. Broadcasting from Monday to Friday from 7pm across the week, Annie has consolidated her position in the music industry as one of its most powerful tastemakers. Known for spotting the stars of tomorrow today, many artists credit Annie for their first break, while labels plan their releases around her on air premieres.
Released on Wednesday 5th October via Virgin EMI, the AMP 2016 compilation is split across two discs featuring a broad-ranging collection of music that Annie has been playing on radio and out at clubs, parties and festivals over the past year.
With the music that Annie champions being more ubiquitous than ever, never has an AMP compilation felt more reflective of the popular music zeitgeist. Featuring Disclosure, Major Lazer, Calvin Harris, Katy B, Skepta, Christine and the Queens, Jorja Smith (to name a few), the tracklisting encompasses both upcoming and established artists, of varying genres, from over ten different countries. Boasting everything from Scandinavian House through US Hip Hop to UK Grime, AMP 2016 demonstrates how, in the year of Brexit and the threat of Trumpaggedon, the dancefloor is breaking down more boundaries and proving more integrated than ever before.
