Anjunadeep:02 - Mixed by Jaytech & James Grant
Anjunadeep 01 emerged as one of 2009’s most critically celebrated dance compilations, garnering album of the month slots and remaining in recommended album sections months after release. The 2 CD mix from the offshoot of Above & Beyond’s Anjunabeats label encapsulated why Anjunadeep is regarded as a dynamic and influential imprint in its own right.
Mixed by Jaytech and label boss, James Grant, Anjunadeep 02, is the eagerly awaited follow-up. They’ve each taken a cd for this instalment, bringing together the label’s hottest artists, with numerous exclusive tracks and remixes across both discs.
The past year has seen valuable additions to their impressive roster of artists and substantial discography, cementing the continued respect of avid fans such as James Zabiela, Sasha, SOS, Eric Prydz, and Laurent Garnier. Anjunadeep 02 profiles the label’s recent glories and future anthems: uplifting but never saccharine, and always underpinned with a solid groove, both discs define a new melodic style that lies somewhere between house, techno, and trance.
For CD 1, Grant’s mix weaves together tracks and remixes from Jaytech & James Grant, Jody Wisternoff, Oliver Smith, Solarity, 16 Bit Lolitas, BT (‘Flaming June’ remix by Jaytech & Grant), and more.
On CD 2, Jaytech, whose artist album, ‘Everything Is OK’, received plaudits from far and wide in 2009, seamlessly blends productions from Paul Keeley, Dave Horne, Boom Jinx & Andrew Bayer, Marcus Schossow, Jaytech, Jamie Matrix, Rodney Reynaert, and beyond.
