The Anjunadeep Explorations EP series returns for its 24th instalment featuring 9 tracks. The various artist series, a showcase of fresh and emerging talent from the global electronic music scene, has previously paved the way for many much-loved Anjunadeep mainstays over the years including Marsh, Simon Doty, Luttrell and CRi.
First up on the compilation is LA-based artist Anton Tumas. As well as a producer, previously releasing on labels like All Day I Dream, Tumas is a DJ, promoter and label owner, who's played at Burning Man's iconic stages Robot Heart, DISTRIKT and Mayan Warrior, as well as festivals such as Lighting in a Bottle and Desert Hearts. 'Calling Los Angeles' is an anthemic track that reimagines Deadmau5's instantly recognisable classic 'Faxing Berlin'.
Birmingham-based producer TRU Concept returns to Anjunadeep with 'Give No More', featuring longtime collaborator Romany, following the pair's label debut on Explorations 16 with 'Runaway'. TRU Concept has also released on Armada, and been supported by SiriusXM, BBC Radio 1, Diplo, Martin Garrix, and SELECTED. 'Give No More' pairs Romany's dreamy chopped vocals with a driving bassline and dynamic drums to create an irresistible dancefloor-ready cut.
Russian artist Arina Mur is also welcomed back to the label having previously featured on the 11th iteration of the Explorations series with 'Magic Wand'. Her track 'Together Again' is a fine example of ethereal deep house, awash with ephemeral melodies and inviting pads and strings. Arina reached #3 in Beatport's Organic House charts in May this year with her track 'Spin The Dawn', and has been supported by esteemed DJ's such as Tim Green, Jody Wisternoff and Enamour.
German act Arley teams up with Amsterdam-based artist Descend for their track 'Can't Get To You', featuring emotive synths and the vocals of frequent collaborator Julene. Arley & Descend have recently released collaborations together on reputable labels such as Enhanced Chill and Armada Chill.
Munich-based producer Julian Wassermann makes his label debut with the synth and arpeggio laden 'Invisible'. Through his previous releases on reputable labels such as Einmusika, Last Night On Earth and Stil Vor Talent, Julian boasts an extensive list of tastemaker support, including Tale Of Us, Kölsch, Pete Tong, Eelke Kleijn, Lane 8 and more.
Russian duo M.O.S. return to the label with 'Why', an uplifting organic house collaboration with UK producer Christian Burns. M.O.S. have released three standalone releases with Anjunadeep following their 2019 label debut 'Volga / Bengali', and regularly release on All Day I Dream and Shanti Radio, as well as on their own imprint Melody Of The Soul. Christian Burns is a multi-platinum award-winning producer, with collaborations including Tiësto, Benny Benassi and Armin Van Buuren.
French DJ and producer Nhar is welcomed for his label debut 'Carry On'. The track elegantly combines playful melodies and soft, warm textures, and demonstrates why his music has been supported by the likes of Sasha and Eelke Kleijn and Hernan Cattaneo.
LA-based producer LOR also makes his label debut with 'Kingdom Falling', an introspective and emotionally charged melodic house track featuring modulated vocals and a crunchy percussion.
'Disincanto' marks the return of Luigi Sambuy to Anjunadeep, a collaboration with fellow Italian DJ and producer Pergola. Since debuting on 'Anjunadeep Explorations 11', Luigi has featured on consecutive flagship label compilations Anjunadeep 11 & 12, as well as releasing his 3-track 'Paper EP' in 2020. 'Disincanto' combines moody and suspenseful synths with a steady, driving beat, earning its first support from label boss James Grant in early 2022.
