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.

Beatport Sold! SFX Entertainment Buys Electronic Dance Music Site

First ID&T, now Beatport, Sillerman’s on a roll!

SFX Entertainment Buys Electronic Dance Music Site Beatport

SFX Entertainment, the company led by the media executive Robert F. X. Sillerman, has agreed to buy the music download site Beatport, part of the company’s plan to build a $1 billion empire centered on the electronic dance music craze.

Mr. Sillerman declined on Tuesday to reveal the price. But two people with direct knowledge of the transaction, who were not authorized to speak about it, said it was for a little more than $50 million.

Beatport, founded in Denver in 2004, has become the pre-eminent download store for electronic dance music, or E.D.M., with a catalog of more than one million tracks, many of them exclusive to the service. It says it has nearly 40 million users, and while the company does not disclose sales numbers, it is said to be profitable.

The site has also become an all-purpose online destination for dance music, with features like a news feed, remix contests and D.J. profiles. Those features, and its reach, could help in Mr. Sillerman’s plan to unite the disparate dance audience through media.

“Beatport gives us direct contact with the D.J.’s and lets us see what’s popular and what’s not,” Mr. Sillerman said in an interview. “Most important, it gives us a massive platform for everything related to E.D.M.”

Since the company was revived last year, SFX has focused mostly on live events, with the promoters Disco Donnie Presents and Life in Color; recently it also invested in a string of nightclubs in Miami and formed a joint venture with ID&T, the European company behind festivals like Sensation, to put on its events in North America.

In the 1990s, Mr. Sillerman spent $1.2 billion creating a nationwide network of concert promoters under the name SFX, which he sold to Clear Channel Entertainment in 2000 for $4.4 billion; those promoters are now the basis of Live Nation’s concert division.

Matthew Adell, Beatport’s chief executive, said that being part of SFX could help the company extend its business into live events, and also into countries where the dance genre is exploding, like India and Brazil.

“We already are by far the largest online destination of qualified fans and talent in the market,” Mr. Adell said, “and we can continue to grow that.”

COMMUNITY: Chris Lake New Single “Build Up” + Upcoming Tour Dates

Chris Lake New Single “Build Up”
From His Highly Anticipated New Album
Upcoming Tour Dates
Chris Lake – Build Up (Ultra Records) OFFICIAL TEASER

Chris Lake Photo

Following the success of his debut single for Ultra Music, Chris Lake returns with “Build Up,” the follow-up to “Sundown” and the second single to be taken from his forthcoming album for the label.

“Build Up” epitomizes exactly why Chris Lake has been garnering so much attention of late with his huge house sound. Opening on a clipped rhythm and taut arpeggios, the distorted synth swathes open up the track as it breaks down letting the gorgeous vocal from GiTA float through the mix. Continuing to build layers of percussion and color, the lead synths burst through the track as the drum line kicks back in and the sidechained bass swells through the low end, giving it a powerful and expansive energy that is guaranteed to cause an impact on the dance floor.

Tommy Trash joins in the action with his edit. Keeping true to the vibe of the original, he pares back the synth lines allowing the streamlined rhythm and gritty bass tones to strike through the mix. Eventually he unleashes those synths in a flurry of colour and re-ignited vigour, kicking things up a gear to play out the track.

Pete Tong, a lasting champion of Lake’s music, aired the track on his Radio 1 show on Friday, and the track has been getting support from Tiesto, David Guetta, Avicii, Andi Durrant, Norman Doray & Arno Cost to name a few.

In the US, Chris has two Billboard Dance Airplay #1’s under his belt, and “Build Up” shows already signs of being the third.

Above & Beyond Debuts Second Artist Album ‘Group Therapy’

Above & Beyond
Debuts Second Artist Album
‘Group Therapy’

Above and Beyond Group Therapy Press Photo

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.
