To say that Anjunadeep is a hit machine would do a severe discredit to the influential brand. As the market scrambles over hackneyed sounds, the London-based imprint is setting a mold for where talents from across the continents can let their hair down creatively in the name of cutting edge music. After a stunning start to 2015 from Manchester’s Universal Solution, New York up-and-comer Ashworth initiates the label’s second run at the New Year and further cleaning of the modern house market.
Mellow house with an intrinsically American feel is the weapon of choice for this worthy label debut, using blissful chord progressions and traditional instrumental values to make “Whatever Weather” a truly unique take on the contemporary sound. This is a rare point of crossing for traditional genre values and new age stamina – a combination Anjunadeep grows more apt in facilitating with every release. Ashworth is considerably fresh in the game, but he’s already sounding like a vital American asset in the company of this luminary label.
