Now available worldwide, Anjunadeep 05, the new double-mix from Jody Wisternoff and James Grant, has hit #1 on the iTunes US Dance Chart in its first day of release. Featuring 29 exclusive tracks from Dusky, Tom Middleton, The Presets, Andrew Bayer, Matt Lange and many more, the album covers the best in deep house, electronica and melodic grooves that fit as perfectly on a home stereo as they do a 2am dancefloor. Each artist has also recently release a special mini-mix, previewing 5 tracks from their individual mixes.Jody Wisternoff’s mini-mix includes two exclusive new original tracks of his own, “We Are Heroes” and “Macbeth”, along with Alfred Taylor’s “Kuza” and Jody’s take on “Alchemy” by Above & Beyond. James Grant’s mini-mix features the brilliant “WYV AUW CHU” from Tom Middleton, along with Beckwith’s “Back To Love” and DAVI’s “The Time Has Come”.

On to the complete mixes, first up is label boss James Grant, whose annual compilation mixes are eagerly anticipated by the Anjunadeep faithful, and with good reason. Beginning with the beautiful chilled electronica of Croquet Club’s “Cardigan” (supported on BBC Radio 1 by Zane Lowe), Grant’s mix is loaded with exclusive original material from Dusky, Vincenzo, Tom Middleton, Beckwith and DAVI. The mix also features the exclusive Andrew Bayer & James Grant Remix of “It’s Cool” by Australian indie-electronic outfit The Presets, and two standout tracks from new talent Universal Solution. Grant’s mix is a measured and character-filled blend of modern melodic deepness.

Next, they welcome Bristol’s Jody Wisternoff to Anjunadeep mixing duties for the first time. One half of legendary dance act Way Out West, Jody has spent over two decades behind the decks, and his monthly ‘Intensified’ podcasts are a treasure trove of modern classics from across the house music spectrum. Bringing that sensibility to his first Anjunadeep mix, Wisternoff’s CD is a blend of sunshine-soaked deep house (San Francisco talent Lane 8’s brilliant “Be Mine”), melodic deep house (Alfred Taylor’s “Kuza”) and Good Looking-esque liquid jungle atmosphere (check Jody’s own rework of Skanna’s ’93 jungle classic “This Way”), with a garage curveball from current hotshots Leftwing & Kody and some deep washed out techno from Matt Lange and Andre Sobota along the way.

Dedicated to deep electronic grooves with emotion, soul and melody, Anjunadeep holds a unique position within today’s dance music world. Picking up rave reviews everywhere from Resident Advisor to DJ Magazine, the label’s releases regularly feature in the sets of the world’s most respected DJs. Solomun, Breach, John Digweed and Kerri Chandler are just some of those who have supported over the past year.

An A&R hotbed, the label is celebrated for releasing the debut artist album from Dusky, 2011’s critically acclaimed Stick By This, a duo that have since been described as “the toast of the UK underground” by Resident Advisor. They also nurture such talents as Matt Lange, Martin Roth, Beckwith and the exciting French producer Croquet Club.

Jody Wisternoff - Debut Solo Artist Album - Trails We Blaze - 2012
Anjunadeep is proud to announce that Jody Wisternoff, a true pioneer of dance music, is set to release his debut solo artist album, titled Trails We Blaze on Monday, May 28th. Catch a preview of the album now in this exclusive “Trails We Blaze” Mini-Mix. Fans may also pre-order an autographed CD (limited supply).

Wisternoff rose to prominence within the electronic music scene over 15 years ago, when his famed Way Out West duo, alongside the also-legendary Nick Warren, began to dominate the EDM world. Tracks like “The Gift,” “Ajare,” “Mindcircus,” and “Killa” all established their world-class reputation, while numerous high profile remixes (Orbital, Inner City, Sasha) solidified their reputation as preeminent studio masters. The duo has also performed around the world, including a 5 piece live act in support of 2004’s Don’t Look Now album, and a huge tour alongside Faithless.
 
Even before his Way Out West fame, at the age of 13, a precocious Wisternoff made it to the finals of the DMC DJ Championships and was producing hip-hop soon after. Three years later, he was controlling the 5,000-strong crowd as a DJ at the famous 90s rave Universe, before helping to pioneer the early UK rave sound as part of West Country breakbeat outfit Sub Love (with Full Cycle’s DJ Die, later a member of Roni Size’s Reprazent crew).
 
The diversity of his past experiences combine to create his long-awaited solo artist album Trails We Blaze. Blending elements of house, nu disco, progressive, techno and bass, the album condenses Jody’s personal journey through music into 12 diverse electronic grooves, referencing his classic and contemporary musical loves.
 
Representing Jody’s modern take on Balearic grooves, tracks like the “How You Make Me Smile” (feat. Pete Josef) and the nu-disco influenced “Just One More” are both soulful and sophisticated, perfect for balmy summer nights.
 
The album isn’t without its darker shades though. Harking back to his years lost in Bristol bass bins, the hypnotic techno groover “95” and the hip-hop indebted “Red Stripes” both reference Jody’s love of vintage jungle, while reworks of the Pete Tong-endorsed “Starstrings’ and the Beatport # 1 “Cold Drink, Hot Girl” update two of his most classic solo tracks.
 
Also available this month, remixes of “How You Make Me Smile” by Vincenzo (Dessous) and Celsius. These represent the diversity of Anjunadeep, as the label continues to push itself into the deeper and more varied sides of house music.

Above & Beyond Debuts Second Artist Album ‘Group Therapy’

Debuts Second Artist Album
‘Group Therapy’

Firmly established as the UK’s most popular DJ/producers, Above & Beyond are at a tipping point with the release of their second album Group Therapy, music videos for its acclaimed singles Sun & Moon and Thing Called Love, and Group Therapy North America Tour with several sold-out dates. The album out today is already #1 on iTunes Dance Albums/US.

Bringing Above & Beyond’s renowned blend of classic song-writing values and sleek electronic production into a contemporary context, their second album ‘Group Therapy’extends their appeal into the furthest reaches yet. Combining elements of trance 2.0, house, electronica and even modern classical, ‘Group Therapy’ is a complete listening experience that includes the bittersweet orchestral beauty of piano opener “Filmic,” the dark tale of edgy electronic-house anthem “Black Room Boy” and the ambient electronica of “Sun In Your Eyes” – a track which recalls ambient’s early-90s glory days of Global Communication, Pete Namlook et al. With tales of loves lost, found and confused at Group Therapy’s heart, highlights like “Alchemy” and “You Got To Go” (both sung by former Faithless/Bent vocalist Zöe Johnston) are the antithesis of throwaway club music – adding depth, meaning and classic songwriting values to an album destined to go down as one of electronic music’s classic moments.

Group Therapy’s first single “Sun & Moon (feat. Richard Bedford)” is a synth-driven stadium dance number that has hooked major props from dance music mogul Pete Tong and been playlisted on BBC Radio 1 – topping both the iTunes Dance and Beatport Trance charts along the way. The latest single “Thing Called Love’ (feat. Richard Bedford)”features chunky electro basslines with forward-thinking, euphoric melody drops, creating a powerful song-driven anthem that upholds Above & Beyond’s unique ability to marry innovative electronic grooves with stirring, thoughtful lyrics. Both tracks have been made into beautifully poignant music videos by talented director Ferry Gouw.

The globetrotting Anjunabeats bosses are nearing the end of their extensive Group Therapy North American Tour with only a handful of shows left. After sell out shows in St. Louis, New York, Montreal, Los Angeles, Denver, Vancouver, Calgary, Sacramento, Seattle, Las Vegas, Scottsdale, San Diego and Newport Beach anyone attending the final 8 shows are advised purchase tickets in advance.

The success is the result of years of hard work for Above & Beyond, with a CV that includes performing to 1 million people on Barra Beach in Rio and soundtracking the launch of Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic SpaceshipTwo. Building up an unstoppable momentum in the past 12 months, the UK-based trio made their debut at the legendary Glastonbury festival last year and saw the 350th episode of their Trance Around The World radio show become the world’s top trending topic on social network Twitter in December 2010.
