We are all about sharing upcoming babes with our PDBaes so when we got the chance to interview Anabel Englund we jumped at it!

Anabel is a unique and multi-talented singer-songwriter who has worked with some of the most respected DJs and producers in dance music. She’s a regular collaborator with MK who she first worked with in 2012 on Hot Creations, and she was also a key member of Hot Natured – a group formed with Lee Foss, Jamie Jones, Ali Love & Luca Caza . 

Could you give us a quick intro about yourself? 

Yesss, hey everyone my name is Anabel Englund. I’ve been writing, singing, making music all my life. I’m obsessed with growing things (like plants), oat milk lattes, and thai food. I just signed to MK’s Area 10 label through Ultra Music. I live in LA, and flowers make me happy.

For anyone who may not of heard your music before, how would you explain it? 

I would explain it as indie-electro, house.

How did you get into the music industry, maybe any tips for our PD Bae’s hoping to follow a similar route?

I honestly just followed my gut. The way things happened for me was very effortlessly synchronized. I knew I could do certain things better & I put myself where apparently I needed to be. I also grew up in LA so I can sense when people are bullsh*tters..the kind of people who like to waste their breath with empty words. I don’t waste my time with people like that. I guess I would just say to be specific with what you want & go for it. I’ve been dropped, and stood back up many times. You have to have perseverance & integrity. Also, don’t do drugs. It won’t help you in any way.

Do you have a fave collab/artist you’ve worked on/with?

I recently worked with Alex Metric, Aeroplane, and Jem Cooke…We made some fire, can’t wait to release it.

If you were to explain your style in three words, what would they be?

Colorful, comfortable, unisex. 

Do you have any fave PD pieces?Maybe a look you’d wear for an event or gig?

OMGGG, yess looking at the site now the Envious Nude Faux Suede Perspex Blocked Heeled Mules are amaze..then ankle boots…jeez the site is heaven.

Speaking of gigs and events, what do you have coming up next?

Yes, Sept 14, I’m performing in Mexico then the 20th I’m throwing my party Gari Safari at Halcyon in San Francisco I’m super excited for.
