Los Angeles mainstay is today sharing the pummeling titular single from her new EP, National Night, for Space is the Place Records.
Though the DJ-producer now calls LA home, a press release notes that this song is an exploration her “Chinese roots by way Malaysia”—the country from which Singapore gained its independence on August 9, 1965, thereby marking their annual National Day. In “National Night,” inspired by this holiday, Ana Sia celebrates the “sexy, unwritten side” independence, taking the day celebration into her night-world through thrashing, dark techno.
Speaking to THUMP over email, Ana Sia says the EP, “My only real agenda with these two tracks was to get a full expression the ingredients me: a nod to my legacy in the titles and the sort rhythms that move me most; 4 X 4 with deeper club sensibilities.”
