Covering 5 tracks from the hotly anticipated "Anjunadeep 05" compilation mixed by Jody Wisternoff and James Grant, this sampler features exclusive material from UK house duo Dusky, Andrew Bayer & James Grant, the much-loved Solarity and rising star Universal Solution.
Opening things up is Andrew Bayer & James Grant's uniquely deep take on "It's Cool" by Australian indie-electronic act The Presets - taken from last year's gold selling album "Pacifica". Stripping things back entirely, Bayer and Grant reconstruct the original into a moody, hypnotic vocal deep house epic - complete with stirring pianos.
Responsible for some of the biggest deep house tracks of the past 18 months in "Flo Jam" and "Nobody Else", London duo Dusky return to the label that released their debut album "Stick By This" with the atmospheric "Mr Man". Already a favourite of Sasha among others, "Mr Man" sees Dusky take a more measured approach with deep, brooding bass grooves, hypnotic textures and a classy piano refrain.
Andrew Bayer & James Grant team up again for the brilliant "Living". Soaked in lazy groove and percussive fills, "Living" is a deep, melodic house gem that unravels beautifully and climaxes on a washing, emotion-loaded breakdown.
Hotly tipped talent Gavin Holland aka Universal Solution then contributes with the spacey and epic "Osheen". A great introduction to the label, "Osheen" blends a dark, growling bassline with LTJ Bukem-esque soundscapes to create a perfect Anjunadeep alchemy.
Completing the package is the blissed-out ambient electronica of Solarity's "Symbols", who make a much-anticipated return to the label.
