Above & Beyond have now officially released 'Anjunabeats Volume 11,' the mix is available in North America via Anjunabeats/Ultra Records. The album has already gone #1 on iTunes Dance in the United States.

The new mini-mix which includes tracks from ABOVE & BEYOND themselves, plus 16 BIT LOLITAS, ANDREW BAYER, AUDIEN, BOOM JINX, ILAN BLUESTONE & JEROME ISMA-AE, Super 8 & Tab vs. JAYTECH and THOMAS SCHWARTZ & FAUSTO FANIZZA.

Sidestepping the current trends for instant gratification, Above & Beyond's 'Anjunabeats Volume 11' instead reaches deeper and concentrates on the lost art of the build – joining the dots between deep house, progressive, modern trance and forward-thinking big room sounds. Much like their eclectic weekly Group Therapy Radio Show (weekly listenership of over 25 million), the focus is on quality rather than genre alone. For this 11th edition of their iTunes #1 Dance Album series, Jono, Tony and Paavo have created a 180-minute journey that draws inspiration from iconic, carefully crafted mix CDs like SASHA & Digweed's 'Northern Exposure' and the classic progressive mixes within the Renaissance series.

Beginning with the atmospheric deep house of "You Would" by Thomas Schwartz and Fausto Fanizza, the first mix includes highlights such as MATT LANGE's beautifully weighted update of Above & Beyond’s own fan favorite "Good For Me," along with his track "Staccato" and PARKER & HANSON's classically informed "Gravity." The mix also includes some Group Therapy Radio favorites that have been specifically licensed for the compilation such as KONSTANTIN SIBOLD's hypnotic rework of "No One Gets Left Behind" by DJ YELLOW, Flowers & Sea Creatures and GUY J's epic remix of "Overture" by Twice As Nice, as well as a closing epic in MAOR LEVI & Jerome Isma-Ae's peak time update of UNDERWORLD's iconic "Dark & Long." Picking up where the first mix left off, the second outing carefully works up the gears with tracks such as Audien's modern progressive anthem "Hindsight," SUPER8 & TAB and Jaytech's brilliantly hooky "Code Red" and SUNNY LAX's "Karma."

With the label bosses offering up a raft of exclusive and unreleased sounds, the mix also features the current Above & Beyond single “Sticky Fingers” featuring Alex Vargas, as well as an exclusive new remix of the OCEANLAB classic "Satellite" courtesy of man of the moment Ilan Bluestone. Closing on the epic rushes of another unstoppable Anjunabeats talent in Andrew Bayer's "The District," 'Anjunabeats Volume 11' marks another year of forward-motion from the critically acclaimed Anjunabeats label.
