Above & Beyond, in addition to their role as DJs and producers, are also tastemakers. They sift through the subpar within the progressive trance genre (and bad trance is bad) and bring the cream of the crop to listeners through both their ten-year-old label, Anjunabeats, and their weekly two-hour podcast, Trance Around The World. It looks like their next label compilation, Anjunabeats Volume 9, out November 13, will be a heavy hitter, with mostly unreleased, exclusive tracks from big names like Arty, Mat Zo, Jaytech, Super8 & Tab, Andrew Bayer, and Above & Beyond themselves.
This mix is short, clocking in at just 12 minutes, but it's a solid preview of what's to come and somehow, all of the tracks blend pretty seamlessly, despite being delivered as quick snippets. If it leaves you hungry for more, their podcast is free so give it a listen!
