annex’s first two releases on Wave Music, “Get Down”, and "The Bazaar" were praised by the press worldwide:
“The Dub Mix expresses, in roughly eight minutes, my concept of how actual dance music should be... a concentration of feeling and power that goes against the more conventional scheme of things” Discoid Magazine, Italy
"Dark, tribal, progressive - this is something totally different for François Kevorkian’s exemplary label. Both sides work well in the mix” URB Magazine, US
"A monolithic slice of tribal house from multi-instrumentalist Ann Hairston. Layers of punishing percussion and dark swooping textures combine to create a fresh take on a familiar sound, while the flip's dub takes things down a notch allowing some melodic hooks to come to the fore" iDJ, UK
"The lady behind Annex is the rather talented, to say the least, Ann Hairston - a cast member of Stomp, a musician specializing in drums who also composes and produces. Now, that's what I call having the credentials to do a tribal track. 'The Bazaar' sees annex go from multi-instrumentalist to utter mentalist in a totally twisted eight 'n' half minutes of mind boggling dub. (Floor Filler)" 7 Update, UK

Now, annex brings us No. 8 where Ann continues to explore the world of deep tech-house but softening up on the rough tribal edge of her first two singles. No. 8 is considerably more musical with seductive vocals from Merimaid and Agent H and has a musical feel. Flip it over for two fierce tribal-tech dubs crafted by Wave's studio engineer Mike Callaghan and A&R Man Rob Sperte (clicktracks). The break in the 8X3 mix is over the top!
