After the success of the 3 previous editions of the Anjunadeep compilations, Jaytech and James Grant are back with “Anjunadeep vol. 04” this double CD containing more than 2.5 hours of deep house, immersive melodic grooves and modern progressive will be released on February 27, 2012.

Disk 1 – Mixed by James Grant.

James Grant is a man of many talents: Label boss, artist manager, A&R, DJ ,Occasional Producer and on “Anjunabeats vol. 4” responsible for CD 1. This is not just an ordinary compilation mix  like many others. CD 1 contains 3 remixes James Grant did together with Andrew Bayer.  Together they remixed Above & Beyond’s “Prelude”, “Take Me away” by Full Tilt and “Gravity” by P.O.S. One by one quality remixes as we expected from them.

Andrew Bayer is one of the best young producers in the scene right now. So it isn’t a great surprise that James Grant decided to choose Andrew Bayer to have the key role on this cd to get the desired sound for his part of the double CD.

CD 1 represent the deeper side of the album. Tracks like Macro Plex’s mix of Laura Jones “Love in Me”, Vincezo’s “Get To Know You” and Andrew Bayer’s – “You” contain some low bass grooves. And “You” by Andrew Bayer even some jazz elements and nice high hats. My absolute favorite of CD 1 is “Gaffs Eulogy” by Andrew Bayer. A peaceful and deep track that will make you easily dream away. This is the last track on CD 1 and also the best song to end James Grant’s mix.

Disk 2 – Mixed by Jaytech.

Jaytech started his musical career young, released his first track “Music 101” on the age of 16. And ever since that day he’s a rising star. Best know for his unique deep melody’s but also his progressive club sound. CD 2 contains three tracks produced by himself. “Synergy”, “Atlantic” and the Proff remix of “Overdrive”.

On disk 2 we find the more upbeat tracks of the Anjunadeep label. With some uplifting elements and house sounds. The mix is interesting from the start till the end. A little bit early but this mix would be perfect for a hot summerday. To get you in the mood for a big beachparty.

My absolute favorite of this disk is “Boundless Energy” by Soundprank. It’s the perfect mix of beats, melody and bass grooves. And fits perfectly in the mix on disk 2 of the album.
