Spencer Brown and Ilan Bluestone have released a collaborative EP, Gatekeeper, on Anjunabeats after joining the label bosses on their monumental Above & Beyond ABGT350 show in Prague earlier this month.

The extended play comes with six tracks, three originals, and their edit counterparts. “Pooperling” has a resounding cool ambiance that touches trance with fairly tropical melodies. “Gatekeeper” is a bit more on the heavy, thumping trance side, allowing the hard-hitting kick and underlying bass to take control of center stage while brushing melodies make an appearance later in the scene to set up for a big finale. “Steelyard” hits listeners with a crescendo after crescendo focusing on that sparkling build element.

Spencer Brown recently painted lush sonic imagery on deadmau5‘s “fn pig” on the mau5trap head honcho’s here’s the drop! remix album. Ilan Bluestone released his sophomore EP, We Are The Universe, on Anjunabeats in May and proceeded with a 44-date tour.

Spencer Brown turns Ilan Bluestone’s ‘Will We Remain?’ into a 2.0 wonder

Spencer Brown turns Ilan Bluestone’s ‘Will We Remain?’ into a 2.0 wonderIlan Bluestoned Steelyard 26th May 2018 By Luke Dyson IMG 1116

Anjuna wunderkind Spencer Brown has stepped up to remix the latest single from his colleague Ilan Bluestone‘s debut artist album, Scars, released earlier this year. “Will We Remain?” is a collaboration between Maor Levi and Bluestone, along with vocals form El Waves. Now with the addition of the remix from Spencer Brown, it’s an Anjunabeats all-star collaboration, with three label favorites in the mix.

The original mix of “We Will Remain?” is in the classic anthem style we expect from Bluestone with emotive and soaring vocals and a beating heart of a melodic drop with tech elements. In Brown’s remix, he brings the production energy to a stripped back, progressive trance place where El Waves’ vocals really shine at peak passion. Following a string of original mix releases, this remix is a welcome switch up from Spencer Brown as his talent expands.
