Not too long ago, Anjunabeats phenom Mat Zo released his (to date) so- called Magnum Opus. The London born producer grew up in a family of renowned musicians, so his rise to stardom does not come as a shock. The former (and current) guitarist, drummer, and bassist refers to his all-encompassing musical background when channeling his inner creative chi. With influences like Daft Punk and The Chemical Brothers, it’s no question that quality production habits run deep in this one.
Therefore, it’s no wonder that he chose two artists of similar, unequivocal talent and raw, uncompressed ability. The M Machine and Ilan Bluestone not only attest to the impeccable ear of Mat as a composer, but they prove once again the golden standard of Anjunabeats. After touring with Mat last year on Porter Robinson’s Language Tour, Ben Swardlick, Eric Luttrell and Andy Coenen have continued their dominance over all things funky with their latest rendition of “Lucid Dreams”. The trio, based out of San Francisco, have made quite a name for themselves through their ever-evolving live shows. Not many musicians can say they set up and take down their own elaborate stage before and after performing every show. This threesome, however, can claim this undeniable feat.
Finally, we are proud to present another flawless production from one of our favorite young Anjunabeat’s artists, Ilan Bluestone. His sound remains synonymous with ambient progressive trance, and his drops bring tears to the eyes of thousands of young lovers worldwide. It’s a rare talent to be able to captivate a listener the way Ilan does with each and every song. An artist as modest as they come, Ilan has progressed to the forefront of one of the most beloved labels in the word, and we look forward to see what the future entails for this exceptional young producer.
