Over the last two decades, Above & Beyond’s Anjunabeats label has launched the careers of some of the most respected names in electronic music: Andrew Bayer, ARTY, Audien, ilan Bluestone, Seven Lions and Mat Zo, to name just a few. In January 2021, the label launched Anjunabeats Rising: a new EP series highlighting the next generation of producers and championing emerging artists from around the world.
Oësha & Almero, Dokho and Paul Arcane feature on the latest edition in the series, Anjunabeats Rising Volume 7.
‘Desire’ is the debut release from Oësha, aka Maurice van der Molen. As one half of Magnificence, he’s been supported by Swedish House Mafia, Tiësto, Alesso, and many more. The Oësha project sees van der Molen step out on an exciting new stage of his career. ‘Desire’ sees Oësha join forces with French producer Almero, who has landed previous releases on Revealed Recordings, Label X and Arise Records.
Dokho is the new melodic house alias from Belgian producer Fast Distance. Under his original moniker, Fast Distance has received support from Armin van Buuren, Tiësto and Above & Beyond, who have featured his releases on Group Therapy Radio. He makes his Anjunabeats debut with ‘Journey’, following an EP on Colorize earlier in 2021.
Rounding the latest Anjunabeats Rising EP is Paul Arcane. Paul is a producer who has been in our orbit for several years – he provided a Guest Mix for Above & Beyond’s Group Therapy Radio in 2018. It’s a pleasure to welcome him onto the label with ‘Sisu’.
Anjunabeats Rising Volume 7 is out now.
