The brainchild of Above & Beyond, Anjunabeats has become renowned for its groundbreaking music and events. Now, the label is returning to the US and Canada for another run of its flagship North American Tour. After an incredibly successful 2016 run, 2017 will see 13 tour stops across venues both familiar and new to the Anjuna family.

Headlining the tour are Andrew Bayer and ilan Bluestone, who for the first time are touring as a back-to- back duo. As two of the label’s brightest and established stars, this new combination of styles and energy is set to become a legendary set of performances. “It's an honor to play with super talented Bayer b2b,” says ilan. “He really does know how to deliver music and we just vibe off each other so it's gonna be amazing to combine forces!”

In addition to Andrew & ilan’s b2b performances, Anjunabeats has many other exciting lineup announcements to come, with special guests and support additions sure to please fans both old and new. Stay tuned as these will be announced over the month of February.

Special Guest Mat Zo (Anjunabeats Classics Set)
At 24 years of age, Mat Zo has already conquered more genres than most producers manage in a lifetime – refusing to be put in pigeonholes. Ever since his teenage days topping the trance and drum & bass charts simultaneously, the producer has been destined to rip up the rule book and break new ground.
Released on Astralwerks and Anjunabeats in fall 2013, his debut artist album "Damage Control" realised his multi-layered visions in the most emphatic style; the culmination of a young life's work. A #1 Billboard Heatseeker and iTunes Dance album, the LP included his electric Porter Robinson collaboration "Easy", the euphoric blasts of "Lucid Dreams" and the chunky drops of "Pyramid Scheme" (feat. Public Enemy's Chuck D), but was arguably most exciting for its excursions into hip hop, French house, UK garage and so much beyond.

Critically acclaimed, the praise for the bold debut came from all angles too. Rolling Stone exclaimed "Zo is an innovator in the electronic genre who blends cultures with finesse," while Vibe even went so far to describe Mat as "One of the best things to emerge out of the UK since The Beatles." LessThan3 really put it best when they said "The eclectic and outspoken Mat Zo can pretty well crush any kind of track he wants, and if you don't believe us, check out his genre-bending debut album, Damage Control."
Both before and since, acts as varied as Skrillex, Tiesto, Diplo, Avicii and Above & Beyond have championed his sounds (often at the biggest events on the planets), while Zo himself spends his time zig-zagging across the planet – rocking the crowds at festivals like Insomniac's EDC, Miami's Ultra and Belgium's Pukklepop, as well as club shows the world over.

Renowned as an artist in the truest sense of the word, the prodigious producer has also added his unique remix touch to the likes of Empire Of The Sun, Chromeo and even the Lion King's iconic "Circle Of Life" for Disney, as well as contributing a soundtrack composition to forthcoming film Our Robot Overlords (starring Ben Kingsley and Gillian Anderson).

Now a label owner himself, Mat's experimental Mad Zoo record label is again going against the status quo – promising to explore both new sounds and new models for music consumption.
Launched with the funky disco-jam of "Get Down 2 Get Up" (feat. The Knocks) and electro-breaks banger "Left To Right", it will follow with tracks like the reggae-sampling trap of "Bad Boy". Beyond that? Who knows. When Mat's involved, there is only one rule: expect the unexpected.
A journey through lush electronic grooves, sunny progressive vibes and classy peak-time anthems, Jaytech's second album "Multiverse" is the sound of an artist broadening his sound and moving on to the mainstage. The follow-up to 2008's progressive classic, and the first album to be released on Anjunadeep "Everything Is OK" ("a crossover gem ****" DJ Mag), "Multiverse" takes his sound into the mainroom; retaining all the melodic flair and refined production that his prolific career has been built on.
Revered as the warm-up DJ of choice for stadium-fillers Above & Beyond, Jaytech has stealthily risen as a headline prospect in his own right. With tours of Japan, Australia, Europe and USA already under his belt, and appearing at some of the world's largest festivals – including the iconic Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas, Tomorrowland in Belgium, and Dance Valley – he's truly made his mark on the EDM scene.
As a producer, Jaytech's pedigree has long been recognised. Releasing his debut track at 16, the Australian's unique melodic blends have been supported by DJs like Sasha, Armin, Tiesto and, of course, Above & Beyond. As a DJ, he remains a respected selector of new sounds, with his Jaytech Music podcasts regularly showcasing the best in modern progressive and his mixes for the "Anjunadeep" compilation series hitting number one twice in the iTunes dance chart – both with his Anjunadeep02 compilation in 2010, ("Compilation of the month **** -Mixmag) and again in 2011 with Anjunadeep03.
Both classy and club focused, "Multiverse" represented a natural juncture for Jaytech to elevate from Anjunadeep to the more main-room sounds of Anjunabeats; a label responsible for hits like Above & Beyond's "Sun & Moon", Arty's "Around The World" and Mat Zo's "Bipolar".
Introducing tracks like the bleepy groove bomb "Epsilon" and the classy peak-time vocal anthem "Stranger" (featuring regular Dirty Vegas collaborator Steve Smith), "Multiverse" sees Jaytech explore with higher tempos than before; never losing the attention to detail and musicality he is loved for.
Moments like the sun-soaked opener "Everglade" and the dramatic, piano breakdown of title track "Multiverse" offer impeccable updates of Jaytech's classic sound, while an updated rework of last year's piano house anthem "New Vibe" brings a new groove to the tune. Rounding out the album are tracks like light-and-dark musical breakbeat growler "Blue Ocean" and Vitalic-esque "Diode" offering an invitation to journey into Jaytech's own musical space.
Four years in the making, inspired by countless international adventures, Jaytech's "Multiverse" expands his musical horizons, and you're invited to join him for the trip.
