Every year I plunge myself into a basin filled with graceful melodies, flowing basslines, and bottomless sound. Yes, I’m talking about the Anjunadeep compilations. The renowned series was created by Anjunabeats back in 2008 and since then has continually set the bar higher every year for deep progressive house. Today, much to the joy of dedicated fans across the globe, the highly anticipated fourth volume is now out on Beatport and iTunes.
I’ve always held the Anjunadeep series to a high standard, and I’ve yet to be disappointed. Once again mixed by Jaytech and James Grant, the new compilation further strengthens the connection between deep house, prog and trance with tracks like Andrew Bayer and James Grant’s soulful interpretation of Prelude by Above & Beyond. Further elaborating on this fusion is an excellent track by Spaniard Maceo Plex, who contributed a tastefully sexy remix of Love In Me by Laura Jones. This year’s compilation also showcases the latest by Soundprank with tracks like Boundless Energy and his version of Afterthought by Parker & Hanson. The Canadian producer has been a favorite here at LessThan3 ever since his breakthrough on Anjunadeep:03, earning him the #1 spot in our Top 15 Deep Progressive House Tracks Of 2011 List.
Whether you’re new to the series or a loyal fan, I highly recommend you give Anjunadeep:04 a listen. The mixing is smooth, the tracks are polished, and once you have a taste, you’ll definitely be hooked.
