Trance titan Andrew Bayer‘s dedication to the Anjuna family is unending and unwavering. Over the course of the last decade, he’s put out dozens of releases on both Anjunabeats and Anjunadeep and headlined oh-so-many Anjuna-curated nights around the world.

Now, he continues that crusade with his next Anjunabeats EP, Parallels, and a North American Fall tour to go with it. According to Bayer, the intention behind this EP is a return to his pure club inclinations which is why this tour will see him hit some of the most iconic clubs the U.S. and Canada have to offer, from Exchange LA to Mezzanine in San Francisco to Chicago’s Spybar.

Parallels’ is a new project for me and a return to analog club sounds aimed squarely at the dance floor. Ever since I started unraveling the club mix odyssey of ‘In My Next Life,’ I’ve felt a deep reconnection with my club sound and pushed myself to take it into new directions – whilst also paying homage to the influences that shaped my first interest in club culture. The latest result is ‘Parallels,’ an EP of instrumental club experiments designed to exist side-by-side with my continuing passion for long players (spoiler alert: album four in motion) – Andrew Bayer

Ahead of the full EP release, Bayer has shared the new single “True Feelin’,” and just as he intended, this track epitomizes uplifting club trance. From the moment the first kick hits, the energy is pushing towards a sensational conclusion that will infuse any listener with joy. Bright chords punctuate a layered rise towards an intoxicating drop Anjuna fans will find refreshingly familiar.

Andrew Bayer delivers clanging new cut, ‘Magitek’

Andrew Bayer delivers clanging new cut, ‘Magitek’Andrew Bayer NEW Copy

 Andrew Bayer has shifted gears on “Magitek,” stepping away from the more melodic constructions of May’s Only You Boy/Eight to Sixteen and moving instead towards a grittier, metallic technic. Sitting just over five minutes in length, Bayer’s latest single is not without some sonic plot twists. Robotic, penetrating baselines clang at the song’s onset.

Piano chords offset the harder texture of the cut’s opening, as a comparatively softer collection of chords gradually filters in to provide contrast. The Anjunabeats release shows off its anthemic capacity at the midway point, where the “Magitek” trance slowly rises in a euphoric sort of ascendance. The single gracefully lifts, to transcend the grounding trappings audible at the beginning of the production.

Andrew Bayer makes Anjunabeats outing with new EP, ‘Only You Boy/Eight to Sixteen’

Andrew Bayer makes Anjunabeats outing with new EP, ‘Only You Boy/Eight to Sixteen’Andrew Bayer Open End Resource Club Mi

From the opening seconds of “Only You Boy,” the first of the two cuts that comprise Andrew Bayer‘s latest EP, it’s clear that Bayer’s latest Anjunabeats showing is preeminently poised for club play. The introductory cut is defined by an energetic beat that pulsates with a metallic grit. The edgy animation within “Only You Boy” eventually gives way, as a sonic plot twist of sorts unfolds. Bayer slows the track at the midway point, only to tone the tune with a melodic break.

In contrast to the rapidity with which “Only You Boy” develops, “Eight to Sixteen” builds at a slower pace. The latter mounts, affecting an atmospheric euphoria as it does so. The culmination of the production’s climb is an effervescent accent that palpitates at a danceable tempo. Only You Boy/Eight to Sixteen precedes Bayer’s forthcoming appearance at Above & Beyond‘s Group Therapy Weekender, slated for July 27-28 at the Gorge Amphitheater in George, Washington.

Anjunabeats artists speak on imminent Spring Awakening takeoverSpring Awakening 1

Over the years, Spring Awakening Music Festival has hosted a wealth of Anjunabeats artistry, from Arty, to Lane 8, to the label bosses themselves: Jono Grant, Tony McGuinness, and Paavo Siljamäki. But this year, the Above & Beyond-pioneered dance music destination is bringing its very own branded stage to the largest electronic music event in the Midwest, ushering in the summer festival season June 7-9.

Dancing Astronaut had a chance to catch up with some of Anjuna’s standout acts, all of which will perform at Spring Awakening’s brand new location, Poplar Creek in Hoffman Estates. The Illinois-bound Anjuna repertoire includes some of the fiercest faces in trance and progressive house, including Spencer Brown, who received rave reviews for his debut studio album released last year under Anjuna, Illusion Of Perfection, as well as veteran Anjuna acts like Grammy-nominated Andrew Bayer and longtime globetrotting duo, Gabriel & Dresden.

Tickets to Spring Awakening, as well as general festival information are available here. For more information on Anjunabeats, head here.

Spencer Brown
“I am so pumped to be back in one of the most passionate music cities in the world for Spring Awakening. I will be bringing plenty of new unreleased music with me; see you on the dancefloor.”

Andrew Bayer
“I love playing in Chicago. The food is great but the people are even better. Can’t wait to play at Spring Awakening for the first time.”

Gabriel & Dresden
“We are super excited to return to Spring Awakening Music Festival. We performed at the first one in 2011 and that gig has always stayed with us. This time it’s going to be even more special because we get to share it with our Anjuna Family who always brings the good vibes and energy.”

Jason Ross
“I always look forward to coming to Chicago – easily one of my favorite cities in North America. Performing on the Anjunabeats stage at Spring Awakening this year is going to be epic.”

Oliver Smith
“Chicago is one of my favourite places to play. I have a strong following there and the fans are always so knowledgeable about the music. Can’t wait to visit Spring Awakening Festival for the first time too.”

Tinlicker
“Very nice to be back in thé city of house music.”
