Over the years, Anu has remixed tracks for artist such as N E R D, Brian Wilson, X-Press 2 and David Byrne, Jamie Lidell, Justin Timberlake, Felix Da Housecat and The Killers. The 2004 studio album Strangest Things followed a series of vinyl-only releases including "Perspex Sex", "Electromagnetic" and "Eeeeaaooww". The song No More Conversations was re-released in 2007 with a new Mylo remix. In addition to his own work, Anu writes and produces with other artists such as Lewis Capaldi, Ladyhawke (musician), Lana Del Rey, and Little Boots.
