After three incredibly successful shows so far this summer. Anjunadeep, the independent record label found in 2005 by Above & Beyond and JAMES GRANT, is bringing their “Anjunadeep Open Air” tour to New York City this weekend, July 14th 2018. Taking place at the iconic Brooklyn Mirage this day into night festival is sure to be one of the biggest highlights of this summer, as it sold out close to a month in advance. Some of Anjunadeep’s heaviest hitters are performing this weekend, and to prepare for that we’ve listed some of our favorite songs and mixes from each artist.
16 Bit Lolitas
An Anjunabeats staple and head of their own label “Bits & Pieces” , the Dutch Duo 16 BIT LOLITAS have been releasing tracks since early 2006 and clearly show no sign of slowing down soon. Their tracks have an extremely unique groove to them that they have mastered over the years. Check their most recent Peninsula EP below to see for yourself.
Check out Ben Böhmer’s fresh new “Dive EP” below.
Dusky’s sound can best be described as an eclectic mixture from all the best types of music. As DJ’s they truly shine in their extended sets which allow them to take the listener on an incredible journey through so many different types of sounds and genres. See for yourself below as you sit down and strap in to their “Take A Trip 3” mix that was released just about a year ago.
Eli & Fur
The talented duo from London have a true knack for producing beautiful tracks, which are almost always interwoven with their angelic vocals. Their most recent release “Parfume” is no different, with their vocals floating hazily over a simple melody, the duo continue to demonstrate why they have won countless awards and continue to grow at an exponential rate.
James Grant & JODY WISTERNOFF
The first thing that comes to mind when seeing Label Head James Grant and Anjunadeep staple Jody Wisternoff on the line up is their quintessential Anjunadeep mix that they release together once a year that highlights the best and brightest from the entire Anjunadeep roster. While all of the mixes are truly exceptional, we’ve placed “Anjunadeep 08” below as it is one album that truly is timeless.
Daniel Goldstein, better known as LANE 8 has truly taken the world by storm over the last few years. Between his “This Never Happened” parties, starting his own record label under the same name, and his constant stream of releases (most recently his album “Little by Little”), it’s no wonder why he’s developed an avid fanbase. Four times a year he releases his “Lane 8 Mixtape” filled with tracks from himself, other established artists and up and coming producers. Hit play on his most recent Summer Mixtape and be transported to a world of blissful sounds.
Hailing from San Francisco, LUTTRELL has seen himself become a mainstay on the Anjunadeep touring family over the last year, having supported Above & Beyond as well as Lane 8 on their US tours as well as playing Holy Ship. Recently he released his 3rd EP “Intergalactic Plastic” on Anjunadeep that truly highlights his unique take on melodic techno.
Between his deep driving basslines, and wistfully melodic synths, its clear why YOTTO caught James Grant’s ears all those years ago. His recent “Radiate EP” builds on the already incredibly impressive discography from the Finnish producer while truly demonstrating his prowess and versatility as a producer.
