Annava puts a fresh spin on classic garage house with his track ‘I Know’

  • 2 min read

After a breakthrough year in 2023, exploring new sounds, collaborating with rapper CALMEA, and remixing his singles orchestrated by Helio Rex, Annava is back with their first new music of the year.  A track that delivers a softer, more melodic side to the Sacramento producer’s sound, showcasing a trippy, trance-heavy style that is backed by intimate arrangements, oscillating, progressive sounds, and lush instrumentals drenched with euphonic catharsis.

A progressive track that builds effortlessly through structural twists and style transgressions, ‘I Know’ sees Annava incorporating new and unique elements into his genre-fluid style. Illustrating a distinctive sound design that boldly transcends the predictable patterns of mainstream electronica, ‘I Know’ resonates with depth and brilliant, self-produced energy.

After a year filled with sonic adventures and collaborations, Annava has skillfully crafted a track that serves as a testament to his evolving artistry. Opening with a subtle introduction that sets the stage for an expansive auditory journey, the single is a perfect showcase of Annava's expertise in blending genres, seamlessly incorporating elements, and exploring less-charted intersections of sound.

Speaking of the new single, Annava shared, “For this release, I was inspired by UK Garage, 90s jungle, DnB, and old house mixes and the influence of my music teacher who challenged me to add harmonic variation in my tracks. Mostly, my music has no inherent sentimentality or meaning. I Know became the exception when I chopped up some vocals I recorded for an unreleased track, and it became a reflection of the pain of leaving someone you are in love with.”

The brilliance of 'I Know' lies in its capacity to maintain a grounded edge while delving into melodic realms. The track's progression is a masterful fusion of restraint and release, with each beat and synth wave meticulously placed to construct a crescendo of emotional resonance. It offers a trippy, trance-inducing experience that transports listeners beyond the ordinary, accompanied by a progressive momentum matched with a euphonic catharsis, leaving them immersed in a sea of electronic bliss.
