Following Oliver Smith’s releases of 20 Years of Anjunabeats this past May, here is another progressive trance single for you. Titled ‘Sacrifice‘ this contribution comes straight off the Anjunabeats Volume 15 compilation.
The rhythmic build-up and incremental chorus changes echo with the vocals in this song. Alongside the anthem bassline and leading melody, you get Smith’s signature trance sound. We love his sophisticated, deep, and melodic sound in his music. When the track drops, it’s an instant symphony of synths.
“It’s a great honor to put together [a] mix celebrating 20 years of Anjunabeats. I’ve been with the label since the beginning and seen it grow from a few friends at university, to the amazing worldwide family it is today. I’m so proud to see how it’s all developed and still be a part of it all these years later. More than anything, I’m glad we can still say that great music is at the heart of it all.” – Oliver Smith
For those that don’t know, Oliver is Above & Beyond’s first signed Anjunabeats artist. Rightfully so, he delivers master class in ‘Sacrifice’, this modern, progressive trance track. The Brit has appeared on every “Volume” compilation to date! You may have heard this crowd favorite played during his recent lockdown live streams on Twitch. Now, we can save it to our playlists.
ICYMI: 20 Years of Anjunabeats is a thrilling compilation through some of Anjuna’s biggest records from the past two decades. This is a journey down memory lane that we can all appreciate taking.
