She is one of those DJ’s who is the epitome of what today’s musical landscape should be. With a world full of “anyone can be a DJ” mentalities, Anthea is a breathe of fresh air – A multi-layered and passionate music fanatic.
She spreads her love for all the genres sandwiched in between dark, brooding Techno and driving, dancefloor arresting Minimal to the masses with a supreme “story-telling” ability, a musical expression of what Anthea is trying to say.
At face-value Anthea embodies elegance, wonderfully packaged and confidently carried – the perfect juxtaposition to her deep, throbbing music. A humble person who understands that with the ever-changing music scene, one must be judged on their love, integrity and the ability to make a set or song flow effortlessly and sublimely.
It’s not difficult to see that with her immense talent, high emphasis on technical skill and open, warm nature, she has risen effortlessly through the ranks of electronic music culture, having played Africas most prestigious shows such as headlining both Cape Town and Kenya’s Earthdance, Synergy Outdoor FEstiva, Rocking the Daisies, Fu Chal and H20, regular openings for Goldfish in South Africa and residencies at KILLER ROBOT (Africa’s Premier Techno night) , And various clubs around the country. From being discovered at a small house party – the world is fast becoming Anthea’s playground, and a were all the better for it!
“A little later on we were back in the capsule and Anthea Scholtz was on – and boy, was she on! This is another DJ who has climbed the ranks faster than most – her versatility, flawless mixing and top-drawer track selection have earned her peak sets at all the best events around and one hell of a following. Where Anthea goes, so do the masses and they were there in full force to witness Miss S go at it with everything she had – dropping the meanest of tracks one after another, the perfect set to lay the foundations for Killer Robot.” – Karl Schmidt (Rocking the Daisies Review)
“…a new breed of dancefloor damsel is being born, one that eschews the cheesy dance-hype in favour of the ever-driving sounds of house music’s dark cousin, Techno. Anthea’s tapestry takes in the full range of Detroit’s biggest musical export since Motown, her sets constructed out of Minimal-Tech, Tech-House and straight jacking Techno itself, depending on the crowd. From Cape Town’s infamous Killer Robot to Joburg’s mammoth Truth, Anthea is meteorically making her mark, one 909 kick drum at a time.” – Red Bull Studio, Cape Town
