Anjunabeats, the iconic record label founded in the year 2000 by Above & Beyond, celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. As part of the celebrations, Jono, Tony and Paavo release the 15th instalment in their legendary ‘Volume’ series.
Crafted by Above & Beyond in their London studio during lockdown, Anjunabeats Volume 15 signals the direction the label is heading in this decade.
“The rug has somewhat been pulled from under us all and we battle this unprecedented global situation. From isolation comes motivation and it’s time to revisit a trusted friend; the Anjunabeats Volume series.” – Above & Beyond
Names both fresh and familiar to Anjunabeats fans – over 30 artists in total – have been included in the mix.
Volume debutants include Jordin Post, Le Youth, Spada and gardenstate (a new project from Marcus Schössow and Matthew Felner) are joined by label stalwarts Andrew Bayer, Genix, Gabriel & Dresden, Oliver Smith, Mat Zo, Jason Ross, Tinlicker, Sunny Lax and, of course, Above & Beyond.
Disc one has a strong selection of exciting Anjunadeep talent on display: Marsh, Qrion, Durante & HANA, Frost and PROFF, a deeper, progressive mix that builds towards disc two, where Above & Beyond takes full flight.
Disc two has no less than six Above & Beyond contributions, including three new club instrumentals: “I Saw Good”, “Jam” and “Crash”. There’s two Volume 15 exclusive remixes of Above & Beyond’s staples: “Oceanic”, remixed by Germany’s Jerome Isma-Ae and “Sun In Your Eyes”, remixed by Sunny Lax.
Some formidable collaborations have been turned in from Andrew Bayer, who teams up on tracks with both Genix and Cosmic Gate, Grum and Genix and Spencer Brown and ALPHA 9. Trance music’s answer to the power trio, Elysian (ilan Bluestone, Maor Levi and Emma Hewitt) also make an appearance.
