The Anjunabeats Rising EP series returns for its 13th instalment, featuring new music from Laura van Dam, Luccio & Rune Noire, and Supernature.
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.
Anjunabeats Rising introduced over 40 new acts to the label during 2021, including GVN, Alex Sonata & TheRio, Naz, Stephen Kirkwood, HRRTZ, Bexxie and more. After a brief hiatus, the series now returns.
Labelled by 1001tracklists.com as the ‘future of dance’, Amsterdam’s Laura van Dam honed her production skills whilst working as an A&R for Doorn Records, graduating onto the label in 2019 with ‘Skyfly’. ‘Set Me Free’ is the first of several tracks you’ll be hearing from Laura on Anjunabeats this year – she also joins us at Group Therapy Weekender London this September.
A producer and DJ based in Miami, Luccio has supported some of trance’s biggest names at shows across the Magic City. He teams up with Rune Noire on ‘Try’, first heard on Fatum’s Anjunabeats Worldwide 10 compilation.
Rounding off the EP are UK duo Supernature, aka Kevin Thorpe and Zed Sinclair. ‘Somewhere In Time’ pays homage to a wide selection of Kevin and Zed’s influences, including CamelPhat, Tangerine Dream, 80’s sci-fi and filmmaker Christopher Nolan.
Anjunabeats Rising Volume 13 is out now on Anjunabeats.
