Inside Anjunadeep 05
Now available worldwide, Anjunadeep 05, the new double-mix from Jody Wisternoff and James Grant, has hit #1 on the iTunes US Dance Chart in its first day of release. Featuring 29 exclusive tracks from Dusky, Tom Middleton, The Presets, Andrew Bayer, Matt Lange and many more, the album covers the best in deep house, electronica and melodic grooves that fit as perfectly on a home stereo as they do a 2am dancefloor. Each artist has also recently release a special mini-mix, previewing 5 tracks from their individual mixes.
Jody Wisternoff’s mini-mix includes two exclusive new original tracks of his own, “We Are Heroes” and “Macbeth”, along with Alfred Taylor’s “Kuza” and Jody’s take on “Alchemy” by Above & Beyond. James Grant’s mini-mix features the brilliant “WYV AUW CHU” from Tom Middleton, along with Beckwith’s “Back To Love” and DAVI’s “The Time Has Come”.

Next, they welcome Bristol’s Jody Wisternoff to Anjunadeep mixing duties for the first time. One half of legendary dance act Way Out West, Jody has spent over two decades behind the decks, and his monthly ‘Intensified’ podcasts are a treasure trove of modern classics from across the house music spectrum. Bringing that sensibility to his first Anjunadeep mix, Wisternoff’s CD is a blend of sunshine-soaked deep house (San Francisco talent Lane 8’s brilliant “Be Mine”), melodic deep house (Alfred Taylor’s “Kuza”) and Good Looking-esque liquid jungle atmosphere (check Jody’s own rework of Skanna’s ’93 jungle classic “This Way”), with a garage curveball from current hotshots Leftwing & Kody and some deep washed out techno from Matt Lange and Andre Sobota along the way.
Dedicated to deep electronic grooves with emotion, soul and melody, Anjunadeep holds a unique position within today’s dance music world. Picking up rave reviews everywhere from Resident Advisor to DJ Magazine, the label’s releases regularly feature in the sets of the world’s most respected DJs. Solomun, Breach, John Digweed and Kerri Chandler are just some of those who have supported over the past year.
An A&R hotbed, the label is celebrated for releasing the debut artist album from Dusky, 2011’s critically acclaimed Stick By This, a duo that have since been described as “the toast of the UK underground” by Resident Advisor. They also nurture such talents as Matt Lange, Martin Roth, Beckwith and the exciting French producer Croquet Club.
