Anjunadeep may not be as celebrated a label as some other underground imprints like Dirtybird, Toolroom or Defected, but it is rising quickly to that stature with a propensity to find talent early and cultivating them into budding superstars, like what they have done with Dusky and Lane 8. They have been the forefront of the spacey, progressive, groovy deep house sound that so many have come to love.

Already onto the 6th one, Anjunadeep has announced its upcoming mix compilation with a host of unreleased and exclusive remixes and originals. Just taking a quick glance through the tracklist, their biggest to date, you have tunes from Dusky, Lane 8, Isaac Tichauer, Jody Wisternoff, Beckwith and a whole lot more. It will arrive in stores, digitally and physically on September 8th, so pre-order on iTunes and the Anjunadeep store. Listne to the minimix below and check out the tracklist after the jump.

Posted by on June 27, 2012

While the vast majority of you may not know who Jody Wisternoff is, I believe it is time you get to know the man and his luxurious, groovy house tracks. The British Dj / producer is a long time veteran of the music industry who has been a part of this since the 80s. At the age of 16 he was already playing for crowds of 5,000 people and has not looked back. In the 90s he formed the duo Way Out West with Nick Warren and his dance music career took off from there, becoming an integral part of the 90s British rave scene. His sound is more of the classic, summertime, poolside Ibiza house that is great to enjoy when relaxing when friends with some drinks alongside a pool or other body of water.

His recently released album on Anjunadeep “Trails We Blaze” is his debut artist album after making music for over 25 years under various different monikers and with Nick Warren with Way Out West. The entire album is incredibly smooth and moves seamlessly from one track to the next. There are plenty of great vocal tracks with John Mendelsohn and Pete Josef providing the proper vocal accompaniments to the instrumentals from Jody Wisternoff. The first track “How You Make Me Smile” has been one of the more popular tracks due to the addictive vocals from Pete Josef that have an uncanny ability to get stuck in your head, long smooth violin strokes and a funky, head bobbing bass line. The video for the song above represents perfectly how one feels with this song. The next couple tracks really get into the style of Jody Wisternoff, having much more of the club house sound with a more prominent featuring of the steady bass line and various melodic layers to bring out the groove in each of the tracks. We are also introduced to John Mendelsohn’s vocals in the second track. Continue on for more of the review and an interview with Jody Wisternoff himself.
