Anjunabeats stopped releasing mainly trance music around 2011 or 2012, as they felt a wind of change in the electronic dance music industry. At the same time Above & Beyond rebranded the famous 'Trance Around The World' radio show onto Group Therapy. It was clearly a new beginning for the label, called Anjunabeats 2.0 after that. The label would not have survived if they had kept releasing the same formula of trance. Please note that Oliver Smith still produces the classic Anjunabeats sound ! Who cares of styles or bpm's if you love the vibe that Anjunabeats/Anjunadeep bring to your ears ? Anjuna Forever!

Is it just me or is every major dance music label and artist’s Discogs page filled with “why did he/she sell out and where were the good things they put out in 200(x)?!?” Just let artists do what they want to do and quit whining like little asses. The Discogs EDM community is a whining pool of purist snobs who start raging when an artist or label puts out something they slightly don’t like; always using that “commercial” pretext to attack artists for something that they dislike. This is why Anjunabeats has 27 comments attacking and defending the label, and Hardwell’s page has several comments attacking him for “going commercial”, which I think is complete shite. Why can’t we give artists any flexibility anymore?

Let's face it: Tech House and Techno are the new "cool", every major label that was once making EDM, Progressive House, Big Room House, Electro House, Techno House, Soul/Disco/Funk House, and even Deep House and Future House, is now making Tech House and Techno: Defected, Toolroom, CR2, Anjunadeep, etc. Although many will say (and I'd agree to a certain extent) that EDM is dead and gone and there is none of what there was back then today, I encourage all those who say that to try and appreciate and be grateful for what you can hear today. Although it's crappy compared to the "good old days", try giving these new artists and labels credit, find what interests/fascinates you the most, even if it isn't an entire label or even one artist, find a track, or two or many that although made in the modern day, have some way of inspiring you. And even if you don't, you can learn to tolerate the new EDM sound just like you learned to tolerate EDM at the very beginning (or at least most of you who grew up with acoustic music before electronic music), and like I learned to listen, appreciate, and tolerate almost every EDM genre out there today (although I'm still having a trouble with a few- Drum N Bass for example). Find what's out there, or don't listen to anything anymore, although I highly recommend NOT doing that because there are gems today, you just have to search out and find them, they don't just appear in front of your face in the commercialized way as they did back then. And to me- that's what a true gem is- something that is unique in its time, not just in its composition- something that one has to look out and search and find. In the "good old days" it was harder to find these gems because everything was awesome, but now it is easier to find these gems because everything is crap. Don't know if this made any sense or not, but I hope it does.

Still one of the greatest dance music labels around there! For the haters: look at the other famous labels around, and what are they doing. Compared to them, Anjunabeats still brings quality, just in a different way than before. Music evolves and changes, you have to accept and live together with that. If you are into the old stuff, then listen to that, and don't care about the new ones! There are definitely some average stuff nowdays at the label, but even these are better than the soulless EDM crap around. Not to mention Above & Beyond, who still knows how to make the crowd moving and kicking, playing for thoursands of people in the biggest stadiums. They are the best DJs around there who didn't sould themselves out, but staying true!

i loved anjuna beats back in the day. high quality tune after tune after tune. tunes which to me still stand the test of time. the label never faild for me, especially with the earlier releases. sadly, like everything, things changed and it began turning out the same EDM crap as the rest. boaring, samey, nothing to be bothered with. i suppose the world has moved on but you know what? its a great shame that they still aren't making tunes that will last the test of time like they once were. tunes that future generations of dance music fans could actually enjoy and take inspiration from. after all who is going to remember the EDM stuff in 20 years? still though, we have the good stuff in our music collections to remember a time when this label was great, so thanks for the memories and the good stuff anjuna beats. you once gave us quality, so thank you

I loved this label for his Uplifting / Progressive Trance releases back in the days though I discovered them like 3 or 4 years ago. Now is just shit. The same formula for all the tracks: a bigroom-ish intro, piano break, bigroom-ish outro. Lame. 0 originality. There's no feeling here. Anjunabeats was always a label of quality music, specially Trance, but the best thing of the music released here was that warm feeling of the songs of here. This doesn't exist anymore. Is just EDM crap, and these great artists who always released music here, the true anjuna family (Aspekt, Dan Stone, Daniel Kandi, Nitrous Oxide, Tritonal, the good old Arty, Mark Pledger, Mat Zo, Breakfast, Oliver Smith) are not on the label. The only ones who are here and deserves some attention are Andrew Bayer (ex member of Signalrunners), Super8 & Tab and Sunny Lax, though their music is not the same anymore. imo, this label is dead.

I really loved this label back then. Taurine, Alt + F4, Desert Eagle, P.U.M.A, 5 etc etc...these are still my favourite trance tracks till this day. I am so sad to see the quality of the releases dropping since 2007 or 08. The releases from these few years sound nothing like the original uplifting Anjunabeats anymore.

Edit: Anjunadeep's recent transition to deep house is bad too (don't get me wrong, I LOVE soul , funk and deep house, but the releases on Anjunadeep are just, well, lame and boring, a lot lamer than their early prog trance and later prog house releases), but not nearly as bad as Anjunabeats'. I can't even describe how much I cringed at Anjunabeats' releases since 2013... it's really that bad.

I find myself quite disappointed by how much Anjunabeats has changed in the last two or three years. It just doesn't seem the same as the awesome run of releases from the very beginning up to 2004/5... and maybe 2006. But lately, it seems Anjunabeats is putting out the kind of Trance I really hate. It sounds bland, generic, just like all the other labels it's competing with, which I believe will make it harder to come out on top.

I'm only greatful it didn't happen to the 'Beats releases quite as soon as it happened to the 'Deep ones. I hated Anjunadeep's conversion to "Progressive House", (or as I like to call it: Dead House. I don't think that needs much explanation) because before, there were some stunning Progressive/Ambient Trance releases. Maor Levi - Reflect/Illumina, Hawk - Need For Cognition. Even Supermodels From Paris - Keep On, I consider a huge step up from the House present on here nowadays.

OK, there is SOME decent stuff among the new, but it's very few and far between. The only artist I really keep up with on here is Oliver Smith. He seems to always blend the best of the old Anjunabeats with the new, a great achievement which gets my respect. People who like Anjunabeats nowadays probably listen to the many clone-like Trance radio shows. Sorry Anjuna, but I'm afraid you've lost a fan.
