ilan Bluestone & Spencer Brown join forces on the ‘Gatekeeper’ EP

Two of Anjunabeats’ most prolific talents return, both riding high on the ABGT350 wave as ilan Bluestone & Spencer Brown join forces for a formidable new EP

ilan Bluestone & Spencer Brown return to Anjunabeats with another impressive 3-track ‘Gatekeeper’ EP.

Anjunabeats is well-known for developing young and talented producers: in the past few years, we’ve seen blooming artists by the likes of Ben Bohmer, Yotto, Grum and Andrew Bayer, in part or entirely raised by the Above & Beyond labels. Besides these names, the ones of ilan Bluestone and Spencer Brown stand out, as the two producers are now the core of the Anjunabeats roster.

Ilan has made a name for himself in the Trance game thanks to his signature energetic Progressive sound, while Spencer Brown burst out in 2015 thanks to a way more delicate and deeper touch. The two have now joined forces on a three-track EP called Gatekeeper, which perfectly fuses both styles in what is sure to become a fan-favourite release.

Named after one of ilan’s resident felines, the one-two punch of Pooperling fuses together Spencer’s progressive sound with ilan’s infamous tronce plucks, whilst the title track Gatekeeper – a crowdpleaser from both ilan and Spencer’s gargantuan ABGT350 sets – continues in similar fashion whilst embracing more haunting elements. The EP rounds off with Steelyard, a melodic take on the industrial techno formula, and a sought-after ID from Spencer’s set at the Anjunabeats Creamfields Steelyard show last year.

Both artists will be on the road this fall – ilan Bluestone embarks on the next leg of his We Are The Universe tour across the US, as well as joining our all-star label cast on the Anjunabeats U.K. tour at The Warehouse Project, and in Newcastle, Glasgow, Birmingham and Brighton. On the back of performances with Above & Beyond at ABGT350 and Red Rocks plus a slot at ASOT, Mexico City, Spencer Brown rounds off the year with dates in Houston, LA and San Francisco.
