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

The Elements of Music

There are eight elements to music: harmony, melody, rhythm, timbre, and texture. Like the ingredients in a recipe, these elements contribute to the overall flavor of the music. A musician uses each element to enhance the composition and enhance the listener’s experience. Learn how to distinguish the different elements. A simple explanation of each element can help you appreciate the many ways it is used in music. Here are some examples. Listed below are the 8 Elements of Music.

Traditionally, we listen to music live, in the presence of musicians. However, the availability of pianos and instruments for the lower classes was severely limited until the advent of radio and phonographs. With the advent of these technologies, musicians could play for people of all income levels, from the rich to the poor. Even lower-income individuals could hear classic music, thanks to music videos. However, the use of these technologies changed the way people listened to music.

The Baroque period began in ca. 1600 and lasted until 1750. During this time, composers began to rebel against the styles of the High Renaissance. Court composers, often viewed as mere servants of the monarch, were hired by many of these monarchs to write their music. In this era, one of the most influential composers, Johann Sebastian Bach, gave the genre a whole new style. While we may not understand the evolution of music over time, we can appreciate the key differences and characteristics between various styles of music.
