Alex Sonata & TheRio mix the eleventh instalment in the seismic Anjunabeats Worldwide compilation series. Worldwide 11 delves deep into the melodic yet heavy sound of the Scottish-Italian production duo, spanning a whole host of new originals and remixes from the pair alongside brand new tracks from some of the label’s most familiar faces.
Fraser Shaw and Riccardo Derio first joined forces in 2018; after several collaborations, they made it official in 2020, and Alex Sonata & TheRio was born. The duo made their Anjunabeats debut with ‘Time’, a track released as part of our Rising EP series in 2021, and have since skyrocketed up the ranks of the global trance scene with an array of mesmerising tracks including 'Are We Dreaming', 'Cala Luna' and 'Breath Of The Wild'.
The pair have shown no signs of slowing down this year: they kicked off 2023 with a remix of Andrew Bayer’s ‘Equal’; released ‘Mantra’, which Above & Beyond hammered at their headline performance at Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas and at legendary London institution Printworks; joined forces with Elevven on ‘Hanalei’, which shot to #4 in the Beatport Top 100 Trance chart; and, most recently, collaborated with trance linchpin Giuseppe Ottaviani and electro pop vocalist Tishmal on ‘Tears Of The Kingdom’.
The duo have earned support from trance icons like Armin van Buuren, Ferry Corsten and Paul van Dyk, as well as the likes of David Guetta, Markus Schulz, Farius, Hernan Cattaneo and more on their releases this year alone. They recently followed up performances at Above & Beyond’s Group Therapy Weekender at The Gorge, our Anjunabeats Rising Summer Social in London and our Anjunabeats Outdoors show in Montreal with a sold-out Worldwide 11 launch event at The Poetry Club at SWG3, Glasgow.
Alex Sonata & The Rio’s ‘Anjunabeats Worldwide 11’ is out now. Stay tuned for 2024 tour dates to be announced soon.
