Firmly established as a bedrock of the progressive and melodic techno sound, Anjunadeep has scaled new heights in the past twelve months with support coming from acts as disparate as UK techno baron Dave Clarke, Laurent Garnier, Eric Prydz, Groove Armada’s Andy Cato and stadium-filler Deadmau5 – the latter commenting on Michael Cassette’s Anjunadeep anthem Ghost In The Machine: “I haven’t felt this good listening to a piece of music since Eric Prydz’s ‘Melo’ – 10/10”.
Showcasing the full spectrum of the label’s diverse sounds, Anjunadeep 03 is the latest annual label collection and features 29 largely unreleased tracks that range from deep, dark and hypnotic techno sounds to upbeat, uplifting electronic house grooves.
Beginning on the lush techno of Stephen J Kroos’ Micrsh and the beautifully brooding deep house chasms of Martin Roth’s Deep Style, Anjunadeep A&R James Grant’s CD1 mix continues to build through melodic techno and progressive textures with tracks and remixes from Underworld, Spooky, Michael Cassette, Andrew Bayer and promising newcomer, Soundprank.
On the second disc, Anjunadeep mainstay Jaytech shows off a slightly more upbeat and uplifting electronic house sound that touches on nu disco, electro and more classic house grooves and includes Jaytech’s own forthcoming anthem Djembe, as well as deep audio offerings from Solarity, Dinka, PROFF, Interplay and Maor Levi.
To celebrate the release of this flagship release, Anjunadeep is holding a brace of transatlantic launch parties. The first took place at the world-famous Ministry of Sound (London) on Friday 4th February, where Jaytech and James Grant performed a blistering 4 hour back2back set for The Gallery.
The second will be at Above & Beyond’s annual Anjunabeats in Miami party at Ice Palace on Thursday, March 24th where Anjunadeep will be hosting room two. For further album tour dates, check www.jaytechmusic.com.
