Anabel Englund and RYBO Drop soulful EP ON Desert Hearts Records

by devin hendricks

Anabel Englund has been working with some of the biggest producers in the genre, including Hot Natured and Amtrac recently, while grabbing attention with a steady stream of collabs and propulsive tracks. You probably heard her breakout tune Reverse Skydiving  with Hot Natured, a collaboration on which she sang as lead vocalist. The release received huge remixes from the likes of Shadow Child, Deetron, and Robert James, and has gotten over 8.5M plays on Spotify and 4.75M on YouTube. Ever restless, she's now dropping her latest—a three-track EP with close friend RYBO, and she has more in store for what promises to be a busy year: “I have a lot of things coming up for 2018 like furthering my label Gari Recs. I have a track with Amtrac, coming out in March, I think. And most importantly, I am getting ready to put out the first track from my new solo EP that will have more of an Indie Electro feel to it,” she says.

Englund reveals the inspiration and meaning behind her EP Can I Call U Rite Back: “I wrote Call U Rite Back in the Springtime last year messing around in the studio with RYBO. The song is about getting off your phone and getting into your life—feeling the pleasures and pains, the ooohs and ahhhs of the earth's breath & beat.”

Englund is not the only one excited about the release with Desert Heart. Collaborator and friend, RYBO comments on his eagerness to work with Englund, "This track is very special because I’ve been a big fan of Anabel Englund’s vocals for a long time and it was a dream come true working on the track together from start to finish,” he tells us. RYBO has high hopes to continue working with Englund in the coming year.


Soft but voltaic, Anabel Englund balances the scales of the genre with rhythm and bliss. Her EP is set to be released Friday, but for those who are not willing to endure the next 24 hours, you can pre-order the EP here on Beatport.
