Anjunadeep label co-founder and A&R James Grant and Bristolian DJ Jody Wisternoff share their milestone tenth mixed compilation together - ‘Anjunadeep 14 Mixed By James Grant & Jody Wisternoff’. The UK label is responsible for breaking acts like Lane 8, Dusky, Yotto, Ben Böhmer and Eli & Fur. Ever since the inaugural ‘Anjunadeep 01’ in 2009, the compilation series has aimed to be a launchpad for the next generation of electronic artists.
‘Anjunadeep 14’ showcases the diverse sounds of the label, setting its agenda for 2023 with new and exclusive tracks across two mixes. There’s label ‘favourites’ Yotto, Luttrell, and 16BL alongside the next wave of artists such as Simon Doty, Durante, and Romain Garcia. This year, Jody and James introduce new talent to the label, with debuts from Amy Root, Paul Baule, Natascha Polké, and Claxy.
James & Jody: “‘Deep 14’ might be one of our most labour-intensive projects yet, with a lot of painstaking work behind the scenes to produce, edit, or remix everything into shape for the compilation.
“Fortunately, the creative output of our multi-talented roster of artists is running at an all-time high and the source material was exceptional, so we’re pretty excited with the result. It’s also pleasing to see Reflections well-represented across the mix - a sign of more great things to come from our newest imprint.”
To celebrate the release of this year’s compilation, they have filmed a live performance of ‘Anjunadeep 14’ at Qarraba Bay in Malta. Filmed across one 180-minute sunset session, the performance can be viewed on the Anjunadeep YouTube channel.
