Born and bred in London, Anjunabeats started life as a university project in the year 2000. Today, Anjunabeats is one of the world’s best-loved dance labels. Over 700 releases spanning two decades wear the iconic Anjuna ‘A’.
To celebrate, they’ve opened the vault for a handpicked group of artists from the label’s 20-year history. Each artist will sift through thousands of hours of music to create a definitive, mix of their all-time favourite Anjunabeats releases.
On 1st October, Kyau & Albert deliver the tenth mix in the series.
“We met Ralph Kyau and Steven Albert at ADE in 2002, and immediately recognised kindred spirits. They’d been running Euphonic since 1997 and had some really exceptional artists signed to their label, such as Mirco de Govia and Ronski Speed. Their records were well-made, mixed perfectly, and even mastered in-house. That relentless quality control has always been a hallmark of everything they do together, and when a new Kyau & Albert sound emerged in the late naughties—slower, chunkier, groovier—the whole world followed. With their own imprint doing so well they have little need for Anjunabeats, but we like to have them come stay once in a while: “Velvet Morning”, “Kiksu”, “Glühwürmchen" and “Anphonic” are all Anjuna classics. They work tirelessly to build and maintain the trance scene in their homeland, and we tip our hats to their dedication and commitment. Their mix contains a satisfying chunk of their awesome tunes together with other label favourites. Danke!” - Above & Beyond
Kyau & Albert Present: 20 Years Of Anjunabeats is available worldwide on Thursday, October 1.
