Keeping up his impressive streak of featuring on every Anjunabeats Volume compilation, Oliver Smith's contribution to the 11th instalment is everything you'd expect from the consummate pro; a subtle melodic journey that instantly sticks in your head - courtesy of "Evermore".
Having taken a deeper direction with his Meramek project over the last 12 months, "Evermore" is a reminder of Ollie's ability to make ear grabbing big room anthems. Debuted by Above & Beyond at last year's Group Therapy 050 celebrations, it has become one of the most hotly anticipated records of recent months. Its simplicity is its beauty; echoing top lines and free falling plucky riffs create a dreamy atmosphere that punches through the dance floor with a rousing release.
Providing a more synth heavy, electro infused alternative is new comer to the label Felipe Wrechiski. A frequent flyer on Above & Beyond's Group Therapy radio show, the Brazil native's interpretation enriches the melody's playful nature, a succession of colourful arps and offbeat sounds drawing you deeper into the ever intensifying landscape.
