Trance | Lange vs. Genix – Immersion (Original + ilan Bluestone Remix)

Posted by on February 14, 2013


Another cut from Anjunabeats Volume 10, Lange & Genix collab on the this silky smooth track that marks yet another outstanding release from Above & Beyond’s Anjunabeats label. “Immersion” immerses you in lush pads, atmospheric synths and emotive, reverbed piano, providing for a rich arrangement. ilan Bluestone, coming off of his single “Sinai” keeps much of the original and adds a subtle, growling low end and a pitched top line that makes his remix stand out.

Trance | Nitrous Oxide pres. N2O – K.O.

Posted by on February 4, 2013


Anjunabeats has been a tear leading up to the release on Anjunabeats Volume 10 with one huge track after another each week. Following up tracks like Ost & Meyer’s “Here We Go“, ilan Bluestone’s “Sinai” and Audien’s “Wayfarer“, Anjunabeats regular, Nitrous Oxide returns with his single “K.O.”. Atmospheric synths, a grinding low end and quick key play pervade throughout while a minimal electro trance drop gives the track power for the live venue. This track shows the continued covergence of trance and house into what was once dubbed “trance 2.0” and as Armin van Buuren launches his “Are You Afraid of 138” campaign, it shows the widening difference in how trance is being perceived and produced in 2013.

Albums, Trance | Anjunabeats Volume 9 (Mixed By Above & Beyond) Review

Posted by on November 15, 2011

Anjunabeats Volume 9 is a mix compilation of 28 new and unreleased songs from artists on Anjunabeats mixed by Above and Beyond. It is a compilation that will leave you speechless with the range of styles and mastery displayed by these artists. All 28 songs are mixed, but it is separated into 2 separate mix CDs, where the style changes somewhat. The first CD is what Anjunabeats is known for and what its fans all around the world love it for. It starts off perfectly with one of Above & Beyond’s new tracks “Tokyo” with a teasing piano lead, relaxing synth build and soft choral chants to get you into the rest of the volume. The first CD is that melodic, euphoric trance with sensitive piano leads, flowing synth melodies, easy bass, smooth violin samples and of course the occasional female vocals that we all expect from Anjunabeats. This CD includes 2 NEW releases from Above and Beyond, Oliver Smith, Andrew Bayer, Norin & Rad and others. The second CD is more of the progressive trance/house type of releases from Anjunabeats. It has several already released remixes and singles on Anjunabeats such as Arty “Kate”, Mat Zo “Frequency Flyer” and Jaytech’s “New Vibe”. This is more upbeat trance, while maintaining the structure, bass, sensitive piano leads and uplifting synth melodies that Anjunabeats is known for. CD 2 includes the much anticipated release from Mat Zo & Arty “Mozart” and new songs from Cramp, Jaytech and others. Here are some samples from both CDs for you to listen to and if you want to get the album you can buy it from the Anjunabeats store HERE, or on iTunes HERE.
