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 18th February, California’s Spencer Brown delivers the eighteenth mix in the series.
“Spencer Brown: a relatively recent addition to our family. His debut release, "Chalice", on Avicii’s LE7ELS is a favourite of ours from 2014 and it wasn’t long ’til we got in touch. A remix of Boom Jinx’s "The Dark" was Spencer’s official induction to the family.
A quick stream of remixes followed (ilan Bluestone, Oliver Smith, Seven Lions and Jason Ross, and one of "Northern Soul") but it’s in his original productions where Spencer shines brightest.
Prolific is a word that gets tossed around by the music press. How else can you describe an artist who debuts so much music in nearly every set he plays? On tour together, we would often find Spencer writing a track in the morning, tweaking it over dinner, and playing it live that evening.
Spencer’s passion for the art of the long-form mix is something we also admire: ‘Illusion of Perfection’ and ‘Stream of Consciousness’ are wonderful albums that deserved to be listened to from the very start to the very end.
His mix features our latest cross-pollination, Spencer’s long-awaited "Sun In Your Eyes" remix. Enjoy this terrific mixed journey from a master of the craft.” - Above & Beyond
“It’s truly an honor to be a part of the Anjunafamily, which embodies love, acceptance, and respect—all of which the world needs now more than ever. Because I’m relatively new to the label and wanted this compilation to be authentic, I selected quite a few of my own remixes of brilliant labelmates along with a few surprises that have deep meaning to me. Enjoy this progressive journey from my heart, and biggest congrats to Anjuna for 20 years!” - Spencer Brown
Spencer Brown Presents: 20 Years Of Anjunabeats is available worldwide on February 18th.
