Anjunadeep, the renowned UK label responsible for breaking acts like Lane 8, Dusky, Yotto, Cubicolor, Ben Böhmer, and Eli & Fur, present the eleventh installment of their chart-topping annual compilation series.

Showcasing the sound of Anjunadeep at the turn of a new decade, prolific Bristolian DJ Jody Wisternoff and label co-founder and A&R James Grant share their seventh mixed compilation together – ‘Anjunadeep 11 Mixed by Jody Wisternoff & James Grant’.

Since the inaugural ‘Anjunadeep 01’ over 10 years ago, the compilation series has proven a hotbed for new talent joining the imprint and has helped break some of the most iconic tracks in the label’s back catalog.

Marking the start of another landmark year for Anjunadeep, the new compilation sets the tone for what’s to come from the label in 2020. With Jody and James at the helm, ‘Anjunadeep 11’ showcases an eclectic mix of new and exclusive tracks across two meticulously crafted mixes; featuring a host of electronic original cuts, remixes, and edits from label staples while welcoming more fresh faces to the series than ever before. Ranging from the hypnotic melodies of breakout talents Cubicolor and Ben Böhmer, to peak-time dancefloor moments from Yotto, Alex Metric and Dosem, this year’s installment also brings an abundance of new talent into the fold, with compilation debuts from hotly-tipped duo Leaving Laurel, seasoned breaks producer Braxton, and a truly perfect closing moment to round off the album from British producer Jon Gurd. Alongside other newcomers Qess, Luigi Sambuy, and Kasper Koman, ‘Anjunadeep 11’ also features brand new material from familiar names Martin Roth, Marsh, Nox Vahn, Luttrell and Lane 8, plus a pair of unheard originals from Jody and James themselves.

Established in 2005 by British trio Above & Beyond and James Grant, Anjunadeep has evolved into one of electronic music’s leading independent labels, with over 450 releases under its belt and a reputation for unmissable parties around the world.

2019 was the label’s biggest year yet, with the launch of Anjunadeep’s Explorations Festival brand, which saw 2000 fans flock to the beaches of the Ionian coast in Dhërmi, Albania for five days of music, connection and discovery. The label’s most extensive line-up to date, Explorations played host to over 60 artists across 5 stages with unforgettable live and DJ performances from the likes of Yotto, Moon Boots, Eli & Fur, Patrice Bäumel, Dusky, Öona Dahl, Fort Romeau, Ben Böhmer, Baltra, Tim Englehardt, Lauer, Cubicolor and more.

Over the course of 2019, the label has continued to expand its global Anjunadeep Open Air event series, with a fresh string of sold-out shows in Montréal, Bali, Budapest, the iconic Brooklyn Mirage in New York and for the second year running the 7000 capacity Three Mills Island in London. Anjunadeep caps off an outstanding year with another seminal homecoming, closing 2019 with a sell-out show at London’s iconic Printworks.

    • Qrion Announces Debut Album ‘I Hope It Lasts Forever’ qrion-i-hope-it-lasts-forever-feature-oz-edm

      Acclaimed Japanese-American producer Qrion proudly announces her debut album ‘I Hope It Lasts Forever’, out October 29 via Anjunadeep. The album announcement comes alongside the release of the first single ‘Your Love’, out now. Qrion, real name Momiji Tsukada, wrote ‘I Hope It Lasts Forever’ primarily during the lockdown in San Francisco. ‘I Hope It Lasts Forever’ invokes the emotions Tsukada felt during her adventurous move from hometown Sapporo to sunny San Francisco and pays homage to Tsukada’s memories of her childhood and her father. Tsukada presents a versatile collection of electronica and club tracks, with introspective cuts like ‘It’s All Over’ and ‘Maybe It Was Already Here’ appearing alongside lively club anthems such as ‘11-11’ and ‘Proud’. The album also notably features collaborations with talented British musician Flownn, Canadian vocalist and composer Kroy, and California’s Mars Kasei. Speaking on the record, Tsukada highlighted the importance of nostalgia in its creation: “I connected with my old memories – the feelings of spending time with my Dad, the time I lived with my family in Japan, and the small but important moments of my life from my life in Sapporo.” In creating the album, the artist found it a cathartic process as it helped her to piece together memories she buried so deep, unearthing them as she sat down to work on the music. She continues, “I feel music often creates a bridge to access memorable parts of our lives and in this sense ‘I Hope It Lasts Forever’ is a very personal and special album to me. My hope is that my music and this album will also become part of other people’s memories – something that people can carry with them into the future.” ‘I Hope It Lasts Forever’ is the latest triumph in a career that’s seen Qrion release on legendary imprints Mad Decent, Last Night on Earth, and This Never Happened. Named on Forbes Japan’s 30 Under 30, the producer has garnered notable support from the likes of Mixmag, Billboard, and The Fader in just a short space of time. Now armed with her debut 12-track album, Qrion draws inspiration from far-reaching corners of the electronic music sphere – from the likes of Overmono, Bonobo, and Calibre, to her unashamed love of trance and EDM with artists such as Above & Beyond, Deadmau5, and Skrillex. The first single taken from the album, ‘Your Love’, features Qrion’s characteristic pulsating bass alongside staccato plucks and evocative vocal chops. The track joins Tsukada’s acclaimed catalog that has seen support by the likes of Danny Howard at BBC Radio 1 and Jason Bentley at KCRW, as well as prolific producers such as TSHA, Moon Boots, Lane 8, The Aston Shuffle, and Gorgon City. Having shared the stage with Above & Beyond, Porter Robinson, Deadmau5, and Tourist, Qrion now takes to the road with her own headline tour across North America in support of the album.  

    • Alan Fitzpatrick Announces First Artist Album In 10 Years “Machine Therapy” alan-fitzpatrick-feature-oz-edm

      British producer and techno legend Alan Fitzpatrick announces ‘Machine Therapy’, his first artist album in a decade. Featuring high-profile collaborations with LOWES, Lawrence Hart, Catrin Vincent, drum and bass star High Contrast and Kele, the frontman of Bloc Party, the twelve-track album lands on Anjunadeep on November 12. “The album is called ‘Machine Therapy’ as, for me, the time I had in the studio was like a therapy session. Particularly with the pandemic; not knowing what was happening, what the future might look like, what might happen in the club scene; being able to get into the studio with no time constraints and just really pour my heart into making music really helped get me through the last year and definitely help keep my mental health in check. It was the perfect opportunity to sit in the chair, switch off from the world and create.” – Alan Fitzpatrick There can be no doubting Alan Fitzpatrick’s position as one of the most influential electronic artists of the moment. A countless back roster of head-turning productions over the past decade has seen the Englishman’s profile continue to transition rapidly from the techno underground towards the electronic music mainstream, attracting significant attention from BBC Radio 1, Mixmag and Resident Advisor and elevating Alan Fitzpatrick to the position of global headliner. When discussing the new album Fitzpatrick stated “I’m really proud of the finished product and to me, it feels like a proper LP; I think you can really hear different aspects of my personality and the emotions I was experiencing during the writing process. Some tracks are full of hope, while other tracks are very emotionally charged and some have quite a solemn feel to them… It’s a real emotional journey of sounds. Obviously, the sound is still very club-focused, as that’s my heritage, my sound, but I feel like I’ve explored the spectrum of electronic music with this album and pushed the boundaries in terms of the musical structure and format that I’m generally known for. I really hope that people can connect with the album on the same level in which it was created.” Available globally from November 12, “Machine Therapy” will be released via Anjunadeep; pre-order you copy here.
