James Grant and Jody Wisternoff release first disc of three-part ‘Anjunadeep 12’ LP
In preparation for Anjunadeep 12, set to release in full on February 5, label boss James Grant and Bristol DJ Jody Wisternoff have released the first of the compilation album’s three discs.
The compilation series is a platform for Anjunadeep‘s up-and-coming talent, and the compilation is indicative of what fans can expect from the label in 2021. The first disc in the Anjunadeep 12 triptych highlights hits from 2020 in addition to showcasing 50 new releases. Lane 8, Yotto, Just Her, Leaving Laurel, and newcomers Primnite and Franky Wah are just a few of the many artists set to be featured across the LP’s three discs.
Grant spoke about the forthcoming two compilations in an official release, noting,
“This past year has presented many new challenges for our artists, whether coping without gigs, trying to stay inspired musically, or just keeping safe. It would be understandable if 2020 wasn’t a very productive year, but I’m pleased to say that the opposite is true, Anjunadeep 12 is our most expansive compilation to date, spanning three mixes for the very first time.
It’s a testament to our remarkable roster of artists that they’ve navigated a difficult year with such resolve and creativity, and also to our wonderful community of fans—you have continued to support one another through a shared passion for music. We hope Deep 12 can offer you a little escape, and can’t wait to enjoy some of this music together in person with you in the not too distant future.”
With just one listen, it’s clear why Anjuna was Dancing Astronaut‘s 2020 Label of the Year. Stream disc one of Anjunadeep 12 below.
