Zanias is a singer, performer, producer, and DJ based in Berlin. Born in Melbourne, Australia, but raised in Southeast Asia, Zanias moved to London to study, before finding her voice in music. Having performed in dark wave duo Linea Aspera with Ryan Ambridge between 2011 and 2013, Zanias relocated to Berlin to pursue her work as a solo artist.
Zanias’ first solo EP, To The Core, was released on Vienna based label Noiztank in 2016, and was followed by a remix EP featuring edits by Dax J and Unhuman. With the EP and remixes, Zanias demonstrated her compositional progression by incorporating dark techno textures into her track record of industrial and gothic styles.
In 2018, she released her debut album Into the All on Candela Rising. Like her previous release, it aims to pull listeners deeper into an unchartered wilderness, unbound by genres or trends and purely focused on the distillation of timeless emotions and rhythms. Into The All weaves in her experiences living in Southeast Asia, sampling sounds which evoke a personal nostalgia, while telling a narrative of psychospiritual evolution.
Beyond creating her own solo productions Zanias has immersed herself in Berlin’s creative music scene, establishing Fleisch, a club night and record label which has worked with artists such as Schwefelgelb, Forces, and Kontravoid.
