Anjunabeats Worldwide marks its landmark 300th episode with an extended four hour special this sunday, hosted by four of the biggest names in the Anjuna family in Mat Zo, Norin & Rad, Oliver Smith and James Grant. The show will be broadcast on XM Satellite Radio (10pm ET) in the US and DI.fm online (5pm GMT / Noon ET), alongside a number of FM stations around the world.
Initially established in January 2007 to showcase the finest talent from Anjunabeats and Anjunadeep, Anjunabeats Worldwide is broadcast weekly as a two-hour show on Di.Fm, Sirius XM and a number of FM stations around the world. As a springboard for new talent, the show has welcomed a diverse range of hosts since, including the likes of Mat Zo, Arty and Super8 & Tab.
Having hosted the first edition of the show back in 2007, James Grant will off the 300th episode with an hour of melodic deep house and progressive. As A&R for Above & Beyond’s deep imprint, James Grant has welcomed the likes of Dusky, Jody Wisternoff and Beckwith into the Anjuna family, in addition to mixing the Anjundeep compilation series.
Taking up the baton for the second hour is regular contributor Oliver Smith, whose bi-monthly shows ratchet up the tempo from classic house to high octane progressive trance. As one of Anjunabeats longest servants, Oliver Smith has featured on every instalment of the acclaimed “Anjunabeats Volume" series, with tracks like "Pacific" and "Sunrise" achieving a cult like following.
Californian duo Norin & Rad take control for the third hour of the show. Since being named as Above & Beyond’s breakthrough act of 2011, Bruce Karlsson and Nick Sember have continued to fuse electro, trance and progressive influences - producing anthems like “Bloom" and "Pistol Whip”.
Rounding off proceedings is the enigmatic Mat Zo, whose inspired take on big room sounds has found support from DJs as high profile and diverse as Above & Beyond, Radio 1’s Pete Tong, A-Trak, Afrojack and Steve Aoki. Expect the LA-living London sensation to drop several of his unique mash-ups to bring proceedings to an epic climax.
