Anjunabeats Volume 14 is the latest chapter in a story spanning many years, each mix an epochal statement piece rewarding those who listen closely with an incisive take on the sounds that will define Anjuna dancefloors this year.
Sketched on the road and in their London studio, the mix album coalesced in scarce periods of calm amidst a whirlwind of giddying career highs: the band’s 2018 album ‘Common Ground’ reached #3 in the Official Billboard Album chart while an accompanying tour saw the trio travel to every corner of the globe. Above & Beyond’s two label imprints, Anjunabeats and Anjunadeep, continued to grow in stature and scale at a rate that continues to defy expectations.
Joining the dots between the intimate sound of Anjunadeep and the stadium-sized productions found on Anjunabeats, Volume 14 once sees Above & Beyond craft a mesmerizing journey through forward-thinking electronic music. The two-disc, 34-track mix includes exclusive selections from their ever-expanding Anjuna family of artists as well as original contributions from the band themselves.
Of the many exclusives this mix features – including some fresh material from the label’s bosses -, we’d like to highlight GRUM‘s return on the label with ‘Stay’ (which we’ll hopefully find in his announced, then postponed Anjunabeats album), Tinlicker‘s emotional remix of A&B’s ‘Always’, and Kyau & Albert’s latest piece of Tech Trance, ‘You Are All’.
The Samplerfor this edition features the already mentioned ‘Always’ remix and Sunny Lax’s treatment of Anjunabeats classic ‘Volume One’.
