Jon Gurd returns to Anjunadeep with the announcement of his latest album ‘Phoenix’, out now.

‘Phoenix’ follows the release of Jon’s acclaimed album ‘Lion’, out summer 2020, which reached #3 on the iTunes Dance chart and gained support from tastemaker DJs including Solomun, Stephan Bodzin, Adriatique, Ida Engberg and Shadow Child. Whilst ‘Lion’ explored themes of loss ‘Phoenix’ takes inspiration from themes of rebirth, marking the start of a new chapter.

“Phoenix was written during the UK lockdown last year. When things at home got to a pretty low point I asked myself what is the most empowering thing I can do right now and the answer was to make a new album. I’ve always wanted to make an album called Phoenix. I like the idea of rebirth and coming back stronger after big challenges.”

A respected selector and producer, Jon came through the UK underground in the early 2000s as resident DJ at the legendary Slinky in Bournemouth, warming up for the likes of Mauro Picotto and Paul van Dyk. His early productions were championed by Paul Woolford, Sasha, Lee Burridge, James Zabiela, and Sander Kleinenberg, and Jon soon found himself traveling the world performing alongside the artists he’d been opening for not long before.

“A lot of the album is about getting close to the bone of feeling, a lot like Lion was in a way, but this time trying to translate old subconscious memories into feeling. Memories of euphoria when I just started clubbing 20 years ago. The excitement of discovering and dancing to music for the first time. The feeling of connection on the dance floor with people you’ve never met before. The after parties, the whole thing.”

‘Phoenix’ is the latest album to be released on Anjunadeep, described by Billboard as “one of dance music’s ultimate tastemaker labels”. The label is known for discovering talents like Lane 8, Dusky, Yotto, and Ben Böhmer.

Release date: 8th April 2022

Facts About Music Production

From its ancient origins, music serves a variety of purposes. Originally, people used it for dance, personal and communal entertainment, communication, and ritual. Today, music is widely used in all of these purposes. Here are some examples of music throughout history. The ancient Greeks, for example, used it as part of their worship ceremonies. The ancient Chinese have also used music for ritual and communication. The classical period of Greek music is a good place to start learning more about the origins of music.

The recording industry has become a multi-billion dollar industry, primarily due to demand for music. While most of the revenue is generated from music streaming, physical sales of music have declined because of the popularity of home applications. Meanwhile, the statutory rate for compositions is 9.1 cents per composition. The statutory rate for songs that run longer than five minutes is 1.75 cents per minute. It is important to note that these rates may change over time.

The tonic is the most fundamental note in a piece of music. Like gravity on Earth, the tonic is always drawn towards it. Objects may move away from it, but they eventually come back. In music, the tonic is the first note in the key. The other notes will change to accommodate the new starting note. Hence, the tonic is a central note. However, not all pieces are composed this way. Despite the differences, music is a complex art form that can be understood by anyone.
