Anjunadeep Explorations returns for its 22nd instalment, out June 2. The compilation series, a showcase of fresh talent from the global electronic music scene, has previously paved the way for many much-loved Anjunadeep mainstays over the years including Marsh, Simon Doty, and Luttrell and CRi.

The first track ‘Gemini’s’ is provided by South African artists Karyendasoul & Da Capo. Both are well-established producers in their own right; Kayrendasoul has collaborated with Black Coffee, and Da Capo earned double-platinum status in South Africa for his first album ‘Indigo Child’. The elegant and steady tension of ‘Gemini’s’ has seen the track already championed by label boss James Grant in sets and mixes, making it an impactful way to start this new compilation EP.

Artche is a DJ and producer hailing from Newcastle, whose debut collaboration with Christoph was released on Eric Prydz’s label Pryda Presents, and who recently featured on Anjunadeep star Simon Doty’s album ‘Universal Language’. His offering to Anjunadeep Explorations 22, ‘Bleed’, is a moody breakbeat track showcasing the kinds of atmospheric production prowess that’s seen him earn support from the likes of Pete Tong, Annie Mac and John Digweed.

Jats (ofc) and Kaive, a French duo formally known as ‘The Dualz’, have previously delighted on Anjunadeep with tracks including ‘Your Eyes’ and ‘Inside Me’. Under their fresh alias, the pair deliver a driving and emotive melodic house anthem ‘Hypnotize’.

‘Need You’, the penultimate track on the compilation is provided by Scottish producer and alumnus of Stress Records, James iD. His new offering is a masterclass in breakbeat production and showcases why he has been supported by the likes of Eelke Kleijn and Jody Wisternoff.

Finally, Chinese producer IPeiqi rounds off the release with ‘Redemption’; an emotive deep house cut with a rich chord progression, and a smooth final note on which to close out this Explorations EP.

Release Date: 2nd June 2023

What Is Music and Why Is It Important?

Music is an auditory art form, a natural and intuitive phenomenon that operates in the spheres of time, pitch, and energy and consists of three distinct and interrelated organization structures: rhythm, harmony, and melody. Music is also a social phenomenon and an expressive communication system.

Its protean susceptibility to worldviews is the raison d’être of “contextualist” explanations, which link its existence with various extramusical preoccupations. Thus, for humanist psychologists (such as Gordon Allport and Abraham Maslow) music may represent one of a number of avenues toward self-fulfillment, integration, and self-actualization; for aesthetic existentialists (such as the composers Jean-Paul Sartre and Friedrich Nietzsche) it can transmit transcendent overtones; and for expressionists (like Alban Berg, Arnold Schoenberg, and Ernst Krenek) it carries doctrinaire moral imperatives.


The way music is produced, recorded, and distributed says a lot about the artist and their vision. Whether it is on vinyl, CDs, streaming platforms or Youtube, the process of creating and distributing music will have an impact on the listener’s experience and ultimately their enjoyment of the music.


The journey of every musical artist starts off small, playing gigs in local pubs and venues, posting covers on Youtube and building an audience before attracting the attention of a label or breaking out on their own. From there, it’s a matter of working hard and releasing more music, growing an even bigger audience, and then starting the cycle again. This is how many artists build their careers, and it’s the reason why it pays to stay true to your own sound.
