Various Artists presents Reflections volume 2 on Anjunadeep / Anjunbeats
Anjunadeep presents the second volume in a compilation series shining a light on ambient, chillout and downtempo music and emerging artists within the sound
Album Release Date: January 13 on Anjunadeep
Anjunadeep, the A&R hotbed that ignited the careers of label legends Lane 8, Yotto and Dusky, now present the second instalment of their new ‘Reflections’ compilation series. Following the inaugural volume in October, ‘Reflections Vol.2’ is a collection of downtempo and electronica from label stars Jody Wisternoff, Kidnap, Croquet Club and Luttrell, along with rising talents Luigi Sambuy, Lycoriscoris, Tryst and Dotmaka.
The compilation’s second single, stirring piano composition ‘Love Theme’, is from Berlin producer Martin Roth. 2021 marks over a decade long relationship with the label since Martin’s debut release back in 2010 and since, he’s produced some of the most memorable and fan favourite moments in Anjunadeep’s 15 year history; including ‘Beautiful Life’ and his ‘Hypno Seq’ and ‘Organic Cold Brewed Hipster Funk’ EPs in recent years. With an undeniable flair for emotive and cinematic songwriting, his 2020 ambient LP ‘An Analog Guy In A Digital World’ winning widespread acclaim, Martin makes a welcome return to the label with his latest filmic offering on the beautifully crafted ‘Love Theme’, out now.
“(When I heard about Anjuna’s plans about the Reflections series, I wrote a few tracks in this weird autumn of 2020 – this is the first one…it reflects my typical mood of the weird 2020 – melancholy meets hope and transforms into happiness … returning back to the start” – Martin Roth
‘Reflections Vol. 2’ also features the long-awaited full release of Croquet Club’s Anjunadeep 09 highlight ‘Night Lights’, an exclusive piano piece from San Francisco’s Luttrell and label debuts from REVE D’ELLE a.k.a Fur Skillman (Eli & Fur) and TÂCHES, UK duo Tryst and Dotmaka.

Anjunadeep is an independent record label based in London. Founded in 2005 by Above & Beyond and their manager James Grant, Anjunadeep began life as an outlet for records usually found at the deeper, progressive end of Above & Beyond’s club sets. Today, the label is one of dance music’s most respected, independent imprints.
Anjunadeep has introduced the world to artists like Dusky, Yotto, Lane 8 and Cubicolor, has released albums from Moon Boots, Way Out West, Dusky and Michael Cassette and remains a hotbed for emerging talent. The label hosts regular showcase events around the world, including its own destination festival in Albania, and welcomes sell-out crowds to premiere venues like London’s Printworks and NYC’s Brooklyn Mirage.
At 15 years old, the sound of the label has evolved since those early years. While the BPMs may have slowed, the mission of Anjunadeep has remained the same: to discover and share timeless soulful, melodic electronic music.
