Having painted majestic pictures with his latest offering for Anjunabeats offshoot Anjunadeep, Australian studio talent Jordy Wisternoff’s ‘How You Make Me Smile’ is given a deep and dutiful remix package from across the Electronic spectrum. Hamburg’s underground veteran Vincenzo is first to don his flare to ‘How You Make Me Smile’, stripping the originals eclectic canvas and replenishing the tracks ambient appeal with fine layers of instrumental wizardry while preserving Pete Josef’s unique top line.

By comparison, strong standing newcomer Celsius takes Wisternoff’s melodic stylings to a new dimension. Merging disjointed House grooves with hovering melodic sweeps, the perfect balancing of his own deep melodics and the haunting vocal assets of the original tops off yet another impressive package for Anjunadeep.

Having laid out several instalment of awe-inspiring cuts from the more forward-thinking division of Electronic Dance Music, Above and Beyond’s infamous sub-label Anjunadeep drop yet another incredible instalment of deep Dance delicacy from melodic Aussie studio wiz Jody Wisternoff.

Breaking away from the cheesier domains of vocal Dance music that have been found ruining a wealth of fine instrumental cuts throughout the year, the formidable top line of eccentric vocal talent Peter Josef reigns as fitting as it does contagious. Prancing between the perky beats and ambiently tuned melodies that make up ‘How You Make Me Smile’, Wisternoff is sure to conjure a few smiles from those utterly tired of the more predictable movements in Electronic music. But with intense instrumental properties and a rare injection of emotive energy, Australia has found itself yet another homeland gem to shout loud and proud about.

Still not recovered from Michael Cassette’s remarkable album back in 2010, where the commercial crossover is growing stronger amid the more club and festival-friendly offerings, Above & Beyond’s more House-oriented label, Anjunadeep Records, continues to boast their affinity for keeping things simple and soulful. Returning to the label after last year’s ‘Deep Style EP’, Berlin stationed Martin Roth comes out with a new, two-piece EP.

Far more inspiring than his latest Anjunadeep exploit, ‘Beautiful Life’ epitomises deep baselines, a repetitive yet unremitting vocal line and dominant progressive elements for an obvious headliner spot. While ‘Beautiful Life’ appears as something of a beach tune, the chunkier beats, rolling percussions and soothing piano of the EP’s B-side ‘Make Love To My Baby’ prove synonymous with a solid early warm-up or lounge contender.

The luck of the Irish has not been limited to homeland folk law. Just ask Full Tilt, Letterkenny’s first breakthrough Progressive act to scale the globe with their vintage club sound. On the back of successful instalments for Armada Music, the Northern Irish duo head to Anjunadeep for an 80’s infused instalment to the infamous imprint. Leaping from warm and ambient chord play to succinct lead play, Take Me Away’s resonating beats and grinding bass make for a mature and overtly satisfying leap in the calmer realms of club music. With James Grant himself and Anjunadeep favourite Andrew Bayer on remix duties, this is yet another promising instalment from a duo who have invariably outgrown their humble hometown.

Despite being fairly unknown, the London duo that are Alfie Granger-Howell and Nick Harriman, also known as Dusky, have validated the fact that fame and talent don’t necessarily go hand-in-hand. Starring as one of Anjunadeep’s hottest rescources thus far, Dusky return from the recent release of their debut album to come out with another well-oiled single through one of the record imprints of Above & Beyond. As a counterpart to the abundance of dubstep and wobbly electro-house offerings hitting the digital mark these days, Dusky’s ‘Three Colours’ reflects upon far less intricate build-ups and a soothing appeal. With assistance from large yet smooth kicks, soothing piano chords and mysterious vocal lines, this accompany piece to a re-release of the album single ‘Lost Highway’ sets the standard for the London producers’ music output in 2012. Also included in the package is the winning remix out of the recently finished remix contest for Dusky’s essential contender of 2011, ‘Lost In You’, in which London-based deep House producer Hugga Thugg went victorious.

Having been a core asset to the label since 2007, James Cayzer, professionally known as Jaytech, is one of the few, eminent geniuses in the world of progressive house music responsible for the rise of the sublabel to Above & Beyond’s Anjunabeats, Anjunadeep. After the triumphant release of ”Temporarity”, the pack compiling brilliance and innovativeness from the Finnish duo Michael Cassette, Anjunadeep has become the leading release platform in terms of bringing forth the most harmonic of sounds lately. Hailing from London, Jaytech, the DJ and producer born and bred down-under, comes out with his third Anjunadeep EP in 2011, headlined by Overdrive – a thumping track with filtered, robot-sounding vocals, groovy beats and a euphoric lead.

Aboard the package is also a remix from PROFF, the Moscow-based veteran, whom gives the original a tad of his distinguished touch. Atop of the Overdrive’s progressive structure, the Russian adds a significantly darker edge, tougher beats and funky sounds for this full-blown remake.

Jaytech’s ‘Overdrive’ is now out on Anjunadeep along with a remix from PROFF.

They have med themselves recognized thanks to a vast discography of harmonic and brilliant releases and Suspect 44’s new EP is certainly one to be classified as such. Addressed by harmonically appealing co-operation of sweet piano melodies, a wisely dubbed vocal and a pounding beat coming from the lead single – Japanese Schoolgirls. Anjunadeep Records is the deliverer of another brilliant release. Bringing aboard Moscow’s PROFF and Venice-stationed Answer42 to beautifully remix the headliner, the package also comes along with a sensitive accompany single named Minato, finalizing the release with its unequal charm.
