COMPILATION REVIEW: Anjunabeats In Ibiza 2016 Sampler out on Anjunabeats

Capturing the laid-back atmosphere of the White Isle, the Anjunabeats In Ibiza 2016 Sampler brings you three exclusive cuts from the label’s sun soaked compilation.

Having provided memorable moments on both Anjunabeats and Anjunadeep over the last two years, Italian’s Thomas Schwartz and Fausto Fanizza return for the woozy deep house number ‘For You’.

Having impressed with his label debut ‘Face Yourself’, Finnish talent Movement Machina’s provides an inspired take on the classic Super8 & Tab and Julie Thompson song ‘My Enemy’; a moody slice of progressive techno.

Completing the package are Group Therapy regulars Andy MacDougall and Hilton Caswell aka Trilucid, who team up with Katherine Amy for the hypnotic ‘Where You Want To Be’.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Anjunabeats presents the soundtrack of your summer indifferent if you manage to reach Ibiza or if you will pass it in your garden at home. The compilation Anjunabeats In Ibiza includes some of the biggest anthems today by Above & Beyond, Jody Wisternoff, Kyau & Albert and many more. It includes 3 exclusives that are simply magical. First of all Thomas Schwartz and Fausto Fanizza deliver under their Starchaser alter ego the fantastic For You. This is the epitome of melodic dreamy relaxing progressive trance magic with sparkling melodies, haunting deep basslines, rolling grooves and fantastic organic instruments with sunkissed themes and even some break beat sections as well. Relaxing and very danceable at the same time.  Super8 & Tab and Julie Thompson appear with My Enemy on the melodic progressive techno meets trance version by Movement Machina. Julie's voice has been praised for her strength and on this remix her voice shines upon the wonky drums, the bubbly basslines, the gritty dark edges, cinematic strings and warm piano melancholic summery chords and even balearic guitar riffs. Trilucid with Katherine Amy collaborate for the instant favourite dreamy progressive balearic trancer Where You Want To Be. With influences and references from the great progressive house era the track moves forward with great attention to sounds and details with dark basslines, chopped vocal samples and sun-drenched piano melodies that add the cinematic summery laziness.  Great exclusives along with some of the finest Anjunabeats tracks turn this compilation into #PureGold choice.
