Ilan Bluestone and Andrew Bayer Release “Black & Blue”

10 April 2020 - - The DJ List


Two of ANJUNABEATS’ biggest stars, ILAN BLUESTONE and ANDREW BAYER, joined together for the second time with "Black & Blue." Since 2017’s “Destiny,” the pair have blossomed into two of the most prolific and respected producers.

ilan’s debut album ‘Scars’ showcased his love of melodic, club-minded “tronce,” and ‘We Are The Universe’ EP was largely successful and had an accompanying worldwide tour. Just earlier this month, he launched the Elysian project with EMMA HEWITT and MAOR LEVI. Meanwhile, Bayer’s third album ‘In My Last Life,’ was a shift to intimate and soulful songwriting, that was then revised for the dance floor in emphatic style with the ‘In My Next Life’ club album. The follow up ‘Parallels EP’ took no prisoners in championing the classic analog sound of trance music.

Having headlined shows across North America, both together and apart, the year culminated in a back to back set at Dreamstate, unleashing “Black & Blue” on the world.

“Every time Bayer and I played ‘Destiny' live during one of our BayerStone B2B sets, we always commented to each other that we absolutely HAD to write a follow-up. Our idea this time was to create something a little less melodic, and a bit more gritty and grimy. Bayer is a king for writing a filthy bassline, so I sent him a breakdown melody which I already had written, and he loved it. I sent him the stems and we began working through FaceTime,” said ilan. “Initially, we had various ideas for the groove before settling for the one we used in the track. I tested out the new track at a few shows before unveiling it at ASOT950, and I'm really happy with the end result. Hope you guys like it too!”
