Heinrichs, Jason William
Age 51, of Richfield, passed away peacefully in his sleep on February 7, 2022.  In addition to being a beloved son, brother, and uncle, Jason was a well-known Twin Cities musician and music producer who worked under the name Anomaly.
Born in 1970 in Kingston, Ontario, Jason was a born musician from a young age.  He graduated from Berklee College of Music in Boston in 1994 near the top of his class and earning two Bachelor’s Degrees in Film Scoring and Music Synthesis Production and was awarded the Peter Gabriel Production Scholarship by the Berklee faculty.  He then came to Minneapolis to work on his music career.  He was known for releases on Minneapolis-based Groove Garden Records.  He released his first solo album, Howle’s Book, in 1998 which featured guest vocals from local rap artists Slug and Eyedea.  His home studio, Anomaly’s House, would garner credit on sessions for Atmosphere’s vinyl-only EPs released in 2000.  His house was alternatively known as Sartori sound, a space that would go on to handle recording, engineering, mixing, and mastering work for several of Minnesota’s landmark hip-hop groups such as CMI and Oddjobs.
Anomaly’s work was prominently featured as part of the hip-hop trio Cenospecies, which featured rappers Syst and P.O.S.  The group dissolved shortly after the release of their only album, Indefinition, in 2001 and was named City Pages’ “Best Band to Break Up in the Past 12 Months” in 2002.  He would later work primarily in house and dance music.  He was a DJ and music director at the Lounge in Minneapolis and was the resident DJ for Martini Blu at the Grand Hotel.  He frequently collaborated with vocalist Lady Sarah under the name Roomsa, and they released an album, Oceans, in 2007.  He also produced music for many high profile corporate clients in advertising for the last 25 years.
Jason was a kind, loving, passionate human being, an exemplary son, a loving brother, and he will be missed more than words can say.  He is survived by his mother and father, Dr. Richard and Jean Heinrichs, his brother Karl, his niece Justice, as well as numerous extended relatives.
