Named electronica album of the month by Mojo
magazine, Andrew Bayer’s “If It Were You, We’d Never Leave”
captured the imagination of Anjunabeats
fans and the electronic music world at large when it was released earlier this year. Experimental, musical and full of heart-lifting melodic moments, the album’s home-listening vibes sat outside of the club arenas that Bayer
normally finds himself in.
Taking the album’s sounds into peak time territory, Andrew Bayer’s
own Club Mix of "Need Your Love"
changes all that and brings them into a new light.
Showcasing the more dancefloor-focussed side of his multifaceted musical character, Andrew Bayer’s
Club Mix reboots the original’s ethereal beauty for progressive dance floors - adding a trademark Bayer
Building through a hypnotic groove, Bayer
takes us into a typically majestic breakdown with the original’s distinctive vocals ghosting through the air before unleashing a surging piano lead. Full of emotion, energy and quirky musicality, the remix brings together two sides of Bayer’s
musical character brilliantly.
Complimenting the mix is the brilliant "England"
, a favourite from Above & Beyond’s “Anjunabeats Volume 10”
. A quirky, electro-edged groover with a downtempo, chiming breakdown that could easily have slotted onto "If It Were You, We’d Never Leave"
has been a mainstay in Above & Beyond’s
sets all year and is now picking up major DJ support from big hitters across the progressive and trance divide.
Completing the package is the musical dubstep of "Detuned"
. A much loved track from Andrew’s TATW450
brings together glitchy beats, sludgy bass and cinematic strings in a unique style.
