It has been quite a year for Above & Beyond.
In January they celebrated 10 years of their amazing Anjunabeats label.
In March they released their 200th single on the imprint.
In April they went on a massive 22 date tour of the US which included 2 sold out shows at the Hollywood Palladium in LA.
They then released their second artist album – Group Therapy – which earned an “artist album of the year” review in Mixmag.
And so, to the latest Anjunabeats Volume reflecting the diversity and sheer talent of the artists signed by the label.
Anjunabeats Volume 9 features the work of 20 artists including Cramp, Norin & Rad, Genix, Oliver Smith, Mat Zo, Arty, Mike Koglin, Sunny Lax and Above & Beyond themselves.
Check out a mini-mix taster of the album here.
“From the reflective, filmic pianos of Above & Beyond’s own unreleased Tokyo, through hypnotic progressive sounds like Jaytech’s Overdrive to the synth-frenzy of Nitrous Oxide’s iPeople and the explosive funk-charged house fusion of Mat Zo and Arty’s brand new collaboration Mozart, Anjunabeats Volume 9 captures the full emotional intensity of the Above & Beyond DJ experience” reads the promo material for the album.
During their career Above & Beyond have set the bar very high when it comes to production and performance. I have no doubt that the standard of this new Anjunabeats album will be of their usual stunning quality.
I can’t recommend this album highly enough.
