Ana Sia's DJ sets pull from a broad range of dance music styles, but are centered on bass-driven electronic beats. The San Francisco-based artist revealed her first full-length compilation, Surreal Estate, on the label Frite Nite last year, which is home to some of the most exciting electronic music coming out of California.
Sia's profile is on the rise due to performances at Coachella, Lollapalooza, Detroit Electronic Music Festival, Electric Daisy Carnival, and now Moogfest.
