The fifth volume of Anjunadeep‘s not-so-regular compilation series was released today, and it’s already at number one on the iTunes US Dance charts, ahead of Zedd’s Clarity, Tiesto’s Club Life Vol. 3, and Hardwell’s Revealed Vol. 4. This time around the compilation was mixed by label head (and brother to Above & Beyond’s Jono Grant) James Grant and long time dance music veteran Jody Wisternoff. This mix certainly cannot be confined to one genre under the dance music umbrella — deep house, techno, two-step, and ambient electronica all seem to ebb and flow throughout the duo’s selections. Dusky, Andrew Bayer, Beckwith, Tom Middleton, Lane 8, Kahwe, Matt Lange,and Andre Sobota all make appearances, representing both well-known records and newer additions to the well-curated Anjunadeep roster.
Shortly after the announcement of the full tracklisting for the newest Anjunadeep compilation, Alfie and Nick of Dusky release a hefty preview of their contribution to James Grant and Jody Wisternoff’s mix — “Mr. Man.” The record is Dusky a bit unplugged, offering up softer sentiments than some of their more recent chunky offerings. If anything, the calmer take for Anjunadeep is a shot of heterogeneity into the unfailing Dusky sound.Posted by
Anjunadeep is preparing to cool your summer off in a big way. On July 22nd, the sizzling sub-label will release their Anjunadeep 05 compilation, bringing hours of underground sounds to the forefront.

Grant’s CD gives a taste of what’s next for the label, featuring exclusive originals from the likes of Dusky, DAVI and Beckwith. Wisternoff takes a more curated approach, peppering the selections with his own remixes of everyone from Above & Beyond to Skanna.
