The Loop: Anna Love
Beat music is a form that has grown out of various strains of electronic music, right in our backyard. Several local collectives are going strong with monthly live showcases and online compilations, and Texas Music Matters wants to shine a light on the scene. Each week, we’ll highlight a different artist and their music, and we’ll let them tell their own stories in order to put beat music into a Texas perspective—we’re calling it The Loop.
For the most part, Austin’s beat scene has remained in the city limits, but it’s starting to be felt on a national level. Part of that is due to Anna Love, an artist with a foot in the Big Apple and another in the Violet Crown. Love’s music is a hybrid of originals and remixes, inspired in part by listening to Radiohead’s Kid A for the first time as a teenager. On this edition of The Loop, Love talks about her beginnings and the obstacles of being a woman in the male-dominated electronic world.
