Great news for all Anjuna fans! James Grant & Jody Wisternoff just blessed us with the first installment of the highly anticipated Anjunadeep 11. Prior to the official full release of the compilation, the boss himself took to instagram to announce the early release of CD 1. This first half contains 19 beautiful songs wrapped into one melodic masterpiece. The track list includes originals from Anjunadeep artists Lane 8, Ben Böhmer & Cubicolor, who have all recently released full length studio albums.
After announcing the release last December, fans have been waiting for a fresh set of sounds for the new year. Lucky enough, we have been granted access to the first half of the compilation early. The team at Anjunadeep felt it was only right to give listeners a chance to hear it before the release date. After consistently uploading the usual 2-hour mixes, this time they felt differently. These were the following words from James himself:
“As a bit of a social experiment, we’ve decided to make CD1 of Anjunadeep 11 available for your listening pleasure, a few days early. We live in an age of distraction and 2.5 hours of music is a lot for anyone to consume in one sitting, so we thought we’d try to give each CD mix its moment in the sun and, more importantly, shine a light on each individual artists’ contribution to the album.”James Grant
Following Anjunadeep 10 in 2019, we see new names added to the list like miru, HVMP & Kasper Koman. The song ‘Through and Through’ by newcomers Leaving Laurel have warm vocals and cinematic progressions that will electrify your souls. These deep progressive house ballads will only leave you wanting more.
As of now, the 1-hour and 20-minute mix is not enough. Thankfully, CD 2 will be released this Friday on all streaming platforms. You can now pre-order the mix on CD and get an exclusive poster here.
