ilan Bluestone and Oliver Smith collaborate on ‘Blue Eagle’, out now on Anjunabeats.
At the forefront of progressive and trance for almost a decade, London-based ilan Bluestone made his debut on Anjunabeats in 2012. Producing high-energy trance with heart and soul, his emotional, song-driven approach to dance music has earned him numerous Sirius XM spins, plaudits and remix requests from Oliver Heldens to Armin van Buuren and eleven genre chart #1’s on Beatport with a legion of fans around the world.
This year, ilan dropped the singles ‘On Me’ on Anjunabeats and ‘Futuro’ on Armada Music, headlined sold-out shows in London, Manchester and Dallas, toured across North America, and graced us at Above & Beyond's Group Therapy Weekender at The Gorge and Tomorrowland. Aside from his music, he’s also excelled as a pilot and recently fulfilled a childhood dream of making his first solo flight.
Oliver Smith has amassed over 20 million streams across his entire catalogue. As Anjunabeats' first signing and one of our label's oldest and dearest friends, he mixed the Anjunabeats Worldwide 08 compilation in 2018; featuring ten of his own tracks, it reached the #1 spot on the iTunes dance chart in the USA, UK, Canada, Australia, and more.
Oliver’s last release on Anjunabeats, ‘Passion’ with SØNIN, won support from the likes of Ferry Corsten, Solarstone, Farius, Gabriel & Dresden and more, and climbed to #1 on Beatport’s Top 100 Trance chart. This year, he embarked on an international tour with stops in LA, New York, London, Delhi, Mumbai and beyond.
ilan first teased ‘Blue Eagle’ at Above & Beyond’s Group Therapy 350 in Prague back in 2019. A sought after ID for nearly four years, it has since been championed by ilan and Oliver at Dreamstate Southern California and Igloo Fest Montreal.
We’re thrilled to see ilan and Oliver behind the decks at Anjunabeats London this September. Tickets on sale now (anjunabeats.com/events).
