Pablo:Rita - DJ and vocal duo Annabel Simpson and Liz Cass have covered a huge amount of ground in a short time. The two friends started the project with their mutual love of house and techno and have proven to be a dynamic partnership.
2020 saw the duo achieve their first Friday Fire with Danny Howard on BBC Radio 1 with their Bontan Collaboration “Foreign Lands” on Circus Recordings which also earned them Triple J tune of the week. A string of releases followed this year on Crosstown Rebels including a track on the Spirits IV album a long with Pete Tong, Matador and Andrea Oliva, the 200th release on No illusion with Radio 1 support from Sarah Story and a vinyl release on Rekids with remixes from Radioslave and Berghain regular Roman Fluegel.
Gig highlights include the Virgin Records X Skiddle official 2019 Notting Hill Carnival party and the LFW Vanity Fair party. They have supported Archie Hamilton at Love Bullets Halloween, 2ManyDJs at the Arts Club and played the Elrow official afterparty at Ministry of Sound.
2022 will see them debut at Glastonbury Festival and Noisily as well as returning as regulars at El dorado Festival, Wild Wood Disco and Into The Woods. It will also see them turn Bunker Beats - their successful lockdown radio show on Select FM with guests inluding Hot Since 82, Eats Everything and Alan Fitzpatrick - into their own monthly club night at KOKO, Camden with some of their former guests as headliners.
The duo have releases coming in 2022 on Darius Syrossian’s Moxy Muzik and collabs with Franky Rizardo and Jansons.
