Anjunadeep, the UK label known for breaking acts like Dusky, Lane 8, Yotto, Cubicolor and Eli & Fur, presents the tenth instalment of their annual compilation series. With label co-founder and A&R James Grant and Bristolian DJ Jody Wisternoff at the helm, the pair now mix their sixth compilation together - ‘Anjunadeep 10 Mixed by James Grant & Jody Wisternoff.’
Launched in London in 2005, Anjunadeep has possibly evolved into one of electronic music’s leading labels with over 400 releases under its belt. 2018 was a apparently a landmark year for the label, with a string of sold-out Anjunadeep Open Air shows around the world, including the 7000 capacity Three Mills Island in London, Hong Kong’s Kowloon Park, and Brooklyn Mirage in New York. The year was rounded out with a sold-out showcase at Printworks in London, which included an extended set from James & Jody.
The label carries this momentum into 2019, with Grant and Wisternoff presenting ‘Anjunadeep 10.’ An eclectic mix of electronic cuts ranging from Tokyo’s Lycoriscoris and Stockholm’s boerd, to peak-time dancefloor tracks from Yotto, Lane 8 and Luttrell, ‘Anjunadeep 10’ captures the full range of the label sound. Alongside an abundance of edits and remixes from James & Jody themselves, the compilation welcomes a hand-picked selection of new names and emerging talent to the label. This year’s installation sees label debuts from the likes of BAILE, Ocula and GRAZZE, as well as familiar names Virtual Self and Tomas Barfod, via a pair of exclusive remixes from Lane 8 and James & Jody.
James & Jody: “It’s hard to believe we’ve reached the 10th volume in the Anjunadeep compilation series. Despite Anjunadeep 10 being a bit of a milestone, we’ve resisted any temptation to go down a nostalgic route. Instead we’ve tried to keep the mix as forward-looking as possible - our amazing family of artists have been creating far too much exciting new music for us to contemplate any other approach. We’ve also spent a few months politely swerving questions about when Deep 10 might be released, not least as we’re never sure ourselves when it might finally feel finished. This one took a little longer than anticipated so thank you for your patience - we hope Anjunadeep 10 is worth the wait.”
