Tis the season to be jolly and all of that and so to kick start the festive period and what a few weeks they will be we as we hook up with our old chums over at Anjunabeats for one hell of a Christmas party. This years DJ Mag poll saw Above and Beyond climb once again to number 6 in the world and are no strangers to the hallowed rooms of Turnmills having done their first ever Anjunabeats party on a week night way back when.
For this outing we are bringing the full spectrum of Above and Beyond’s Anjunabeats label with a main room packed full of the hottest talent from the main label whilst also inviting the increasingly popular Anjunadeep sub label to host T3.
Leading proceedings will be a 3 hour set from Above and Beyond who have climbed the top 100 yet again to confirm the wide held belief that they are one of the leaders in the trance scene. Its been another one of those years for the trio.
We were privileged to have them for our NYE’s bash at Brixton Academy and this year has seen them pack out The Gallery for their 3 hour set at the last Anjunabeats party. Returning for the Xmas bash with another 3 hour fest the rest of the year has seen the release of Anjunabeats Volume 5 mix cd as well as tracks such as Tri State, Home, and Good for me / World on Fire.
Smith and Pledger are for trance fans a name synomous with tunes such as Forever and Northern Lights. Most recently Mark Pledger has found similar success with releases such as Ultraviolet and On the Edge whilst Ollie Smith’s solo release of Nimbus and Tomahawk has also found huge support on Anjuna. Not only playing solo sets on the night this will be a rare chance to catch the duo dj again together as an exclusive B2B only for this Anjuna bash, it is Christmas after all!
Nitrious Oxide made his UK debut as part of our mini Anjuna nights involving a bevy of new talent and names in T3 at The Gallery and such was the reaction that we just had to get him back for his main room debut. Gallery resident Gavyn Mytchel gets all trancey for the 6am fresh from dropping another storming remix in the shape of Andy Ling’s – Fixation getting the Mytchel magic treatment. Anjunadeep radio show host and manager James Grant turns his multi talented hands to the warm up.
Anjuna’s sub label Anjunadeep take over T3 with their progger take on all things trance and for this special showcase of the ever popular imprint they invite one of the leading exponents of such a sound, Andy Moor. Famed for his consistent producing talent including seminal trancers such as Air for Life, Halcyon and recently Year Zero on his personal imprint Ava Recordings.
Joining Andy will be another regular artist on the label David West who’s track Larry Mountains 54 is still heard at Gallery’s even now. Rising new producing talent Michael Cassette gets in on the action as well fresh from his debut release Zeppelin/ David on Anjuna deep of course!!
