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.

I totally agree, the 'genre-breaking' Anjunabeats label never fails to deliver the very best in electronic music whether it is deep & progressive trance/house, chunky-tech trance/house, melodic-uplifing-euphoric trance, or full-on vocal dancefloor destroyers, this trio have it sewn up. They offer a fusion of ALL types and sub-genres of trance and prog. house, hence this is why they can deliver such revolutionary pieces to satisfy any EDM fans pallet.

This label (particularly for the underground trance fans) is and has been the heart of trance music for the last 2 or 3 years now, and will certainly continue to be for many years to come. There ethos is to produce and mix the highest quality of EDM possible, hence this year they (Above & Beyond) were voted number 6 in DJ Mags top 100 DJ poll - in my opinion they are number 1! I predict that they will reach the top 3 within the next two years, and expect them to be fighting out for the number 1 spot thereafter.

There is also not one release that is remotely poor in any way (including b-side mixes) which is remarkable achievement by any standards in the music industry, and even the vinal releases (which make great wall art) look cooler than David Beckham's bank balance! In fact the Anjunabeats label is so well refined and loveable that when you listen to tracks from other labels they seem comparatively weak in terms of the quailty of production, with maybe the exception of Armada, Euphonic, and the up and coming Intuition Recordings (2).

Every track produced by Above & Beyond is unsuprisingly incredible, so I would advice anyone who likes trance to also check out the work of; Nirous Oxide (2), Sunny Lax, Daniel Kandi, Maor Levi, Stephen J. Kroos, and Smith & Pledger, you will not be let down in any way! Personally I cannot wait for the special anniversary release #100, and the exclusive CD compilation avialable in the new year - bring on 2008...

Arguably the most prolific electronic dance music label around, one can only marvel as Above & Beyond’s label releases high-quality production after high-quality production. What is even more remarkable is that whilst the current output is around one release per week, as already mentioned one is extremely hard pressed to find an average one. Indeed, in just over six years, Anjunabeats has built up a back catalogue that other labels would do anything for, with some classic releases from a diverse range of producers. Whilst Anjunabeats releases can generally be characterised by high production standards and uplifting melodies, the signing of releases from artists such as Boom Jinx, Maor Levi (on the Anjunadeep sub-label) and Stephen J. Kroos has demonstrated its receptiveness to different sounds. Due to financial difficulties, many great electronic dance music labels have come and gone, yet despite its uncompromising emphasis on quality, the future of Anjunabeats looks more certain than most. For me, even with a number of high-quality labels around at the moment, none has done more for the renaissance of trance in the past few years, which is why Anjunabeats is (and indeed will probably always be) my all-time favourite label.

You really can't go wrong with Anjunabeats. Helmed by the amazing Above & Beyond, this label churns out tune, after tune, after tune! Anjunabeats trance generally has roots firmly placed in full-on melodic trance land, but does on occasion stray into slightly chunkier areas. I can honestly say that (at least for me) there hasn't been a naff release. There might be an occasional dodgy tune on one side of the vinyl, but the other side redeems it in style. Highly addictive music, on the whole!!!
