The Anjunadeep series, in my opinion, continues to go from strength to strength, and the label has really hit the nail on the head with this third and latest instalment. Featuring a blend of artists that were with the label from the very beginning or during its formative period (such as Maor Levi, Jaytech, Michael Cassette and Paul Keeley) as well as the very latest additions to the roster (the likes of Soundprank and Suspect 44), its 29 diverse tracks reflect the sound and identity that the label has been striving for since it started as a promising sidecar of the already well established Anjunabeats, offering up alternative tracks that could have almost, but “not quite”, sat on the main label.

Disc One has plenty of highlights; one of them, Martin Roth’s ‘Deep Style’, is my personal favourite of all the tracks featured across the compilation. Dark, murky and edgy, its string-led atmospheres flow seamlessly over a foundation of inventive cowbell percussion structures and downtuned industrial synths. After that, we have the shimmering, summery synth line and languid vibes of Da Funk’s ‘Weekend Rubdown’, a signature Jaytech & James Grant collab rework with its downtuned dense and punchy grooves. I have no doubts whatsoever that this will be my anthem of the summer. There are more made-for-summer moments with the likes of Eelke Kleijn’s remix of Danny Loko’s ‘Coastal’, with its bass guitar groove, and the carefree spirit of the Electrobios/Liluca/Interplay combination track ‘Depends On You’, arguably the most laid back and easygoing track on the CD. These are followed by more melancholic moments such as Soundprank’s chilly, atmospheric, piano-led number ‘Captivated’ and the bleak synths and bubbling interludes of Paul Keeley’s storming ‘Relic’. Add in heavyweight, high-profile remixes such as Spooky’s ‘Belong’ and Solarity’s eagerly awaited rework of Boom Jinx & Andrew Bayer’s ‘By All Means’ and all in all you have a pretty formidable set of tracks.

Disc Two begins with the effortlessly gorgeous ‘Back To Mine’ by newcomer Embliss, proof if any was needed that Anjunadeep continues to bring in producers of the highest calibre. We then have two more sunshine-inspired tracks, PROFF’s ‘Interstellar’ and Answer42’s ‘Dew Point’, played back to back. These are both fantastic productions, the former seeing the Russian producer delivering a more euphoric track than usual but retaining the sophisticated house sound that has made him so popular. The latter sees Answer42 also tweak their usual style to incorporate a chunk and funk bassline that underpins the track and drives the chorus as well, creating a track that has both style and groove by the bucketload. It is no surprise that these two artists got together for ‘The Collaborations EP’, and even less of a surprise that the ensuing track, ‘Cosmos’, was such a gem.

As a Jaytech fan and having taken an instant liking to ‘Pepe’s Garden’, I was delighted when I heard ‘Djembe’. The lazy flow of ‘Pepe’s Garden’ made it such a great production, but in my opinion ‘Djembe’ has gone and trumped it. It’s groovier, bouncier, heavier, faster and much, much more fun. It’s designed to move the dancefloor as opposed to merely warming it up or giving you something to tap your feet to whilst lazing on the beach in the morning with a cocktail, and with its crazy vocal chops and loops and beach house interlude you’ll gain much love if you drop it into a summer set I’m sure. Following ‘Djembe’ is a run of great tracks including Suspect 44’s synthy and insanely catchy ‘Japanese Schoolgirls’, arguably Dinka’s best production to date, ‘The Sleeping Beauty’ and another terrific track from Canadian producer Colin Fisher (aka Soundprank), ‘The Far Side’. Earmarked as another boy wonder producer it seems that, along with Mat Zo, Anjunadeep have their very own musical equivalents of Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere on their roster. My analysis of Soundprank so far is that he has a far more simplistic style than Mat Zo, who leans more towards a ‘crazy professor’ fusion of seemingly incompatible elements. For further evidence of Soundprank's skills, one listen to Jaytech collaboration 'Pranktech' should have you sold. Needless to say, both Mat Zo and Soundprank will be flag bearers for the label in the future.

This compilation has built upon the successes of the two that preceded it. Whereas ‘Anjunadeep:01’ was, for me, too heavily focused on a small number of producers, ‘Anjunadeep:02’ signified the growth of the label with a host of new artists, sounds and influences. ‘Anjunadeep:03’ has taken the label to a whole new level and, having built up a formidable back catalogue of its own, it now seems set to take centre stage.
