Another big surprise came out of Anjuna HQ this week. James Grant, the boss of Anjunadeep, left fans scrambling on Monday night when the new mix album Anjunadeep 11 was available on Spotify four days early. Fans were wondering if it was some kind of glitch, but James Grant quickly revealed on Tuesday morning that it was intentional.
Part 1, 20/38 songs are available now.
Surprise! CD 1 of Anjunadeep 11 is available to stream ahead of the compilation’s full release on Friday.

Everything has been mixed by duo James Grant and Jody Wisternoff. The Anjunadeep label opted to release 20 tracks on Tuesday and the remaining 18 on Friday. This allows artists from part two and part one to have their own moment. People have been granted more time to analyze these new songs. Listen to music from Jeorro, Leaving Laurel, Marsh, Nox Vahn, Lane 8, Luttrell, and Qrion.
Nox Vahn & Marsh – Come Together
The duo from The Group Therapy Weekender has joined forces once again. Their solo work is great but when they Come Together they excel. This one was first previewed at James Grant and Jody Wisternoff’s ABGT 350 set on deep house day.
The sampled lyrics from Alan Watts bring this track to god mode. The vocal is all about meditation and how listening can help you reach the meditative state.
Leaving Laurel – Through and Through
Pierce Fulton has a long history with Anjunabeats. His longtime friend Gordon Huntley makes up ½ of the duo Botnek. On January 9, 2020, the two merged together to create deep house duo Leaving Laurel.
Their music is inspired by the Laurel Canyon neighborhood in Los Angeles. Naturally, their music invokes images of nature and thus it’s highly cinematic. Through and Through is their third single on Anjunadeep in the last month.
Lane 8 – Keep on
We haven’t been able to stop talking about Lane 8 for months now. The deep house superstar recently released his third album on his own independent label. Now he’s got a new single on his original home, Anjunadeep. Lane 8 mastered lyrical work on his recent Brightest Lights album. Keep On matches the calm of Anjunadeep 11, but still has a Lane 8 heavy dance-inspired drop around the three-minute mark.
Come celebrate deep house week with us and Anjunadeep. We are currently being spoiled by Anjunabeats and Anjunadeep. The label headed by Above & Beyond hasn’t slowed down in months. It has been non-stop new music for these gentlemen. On the bright side, they have had a lot of downtime between shows. The trio is staying rested and healthy.
