Andrew Bayer – Once Lydian (Original Mix) [Preview]
For all the artists to have been stick on a pedestal for 2013, Andrew Bayer was North America’s answer to dance music’s peak time Picasso. From the ambient nuances of ‘If It Were You, We’d Never Leave‘ to ferocious sign-off collaboration “Prototype” as Norin & Rad coalition Artificial, there were big boots to fill for the composer turned impeccable club asset. In the first instance, there appears to be no lull to proceedings at the turn of the New Year. Back under Anjuna’s musical umbrella, “Once Lydian” made a lasting impact during Beyer’s set at ABGT050 in London last year, emerging in the first quarter as lasting proof of his ability to match experimental stamina with coherent club capacity. As uplifting and melodically tuned as we have come to expect from precedent setting label and artist alike, this is music with permanence to a time of unprecedented consumer shelf life. Once again, Anjunabeats bucks the trend for doing incredible things with familiar faces, entering the New Year with unquestionable stamina and one of North America’s most consistent players to date.
