Trance titan Andrew Bayer‘s dedication to the Anjuna family is unending and unwavering. Over the course of the last decade, he’s put out dozens of releases on both Anjunabeats and Anjunadeep and headlined oh-so-many Anjuna-curated nights around the world.
Now, he continues that crusade with his next Anjunabeats EP, Parallels, and a North American Fall tour to go with it. According to Bayer, the intention behind this EP is a return to his pure club inclinations which is why this tour will see him hit some of the most iconic clubs the U.S. and Canada have to offer, from Exchange LA to Mezzanine in San Francisco to Chicago’s Spybar.
Parallels’ is a new project for me and a return to analog club sounds aimed squarely at the dance floor. Ever since I started unraveling the club mix odyssey of ‘In My Next Life,’ I’ve felt a deep reconnection with my club sound and pushed myself to take it into new directions – whilst also paying homage to the influences that shaped my first interest in club culture. The latest result is ‘Parallels,’ an EP of instrumental club experiments designed to exist side-by-side with my continuing passion for long players (spoiler alert: album four in motion) – Andrew Bayer
Ahead of the full EP release, Bayer has shared the new single “True Feelin’,” and just as he intended, this track epitomizes uplifting club trance. From the moment the first kick hits, the energy is pushing towards a sensational conclusion that will infuse any listener with joy. Bright chords punctuate a layered rise towards an intoxicating drop Anjuna fans will find refreshingly familiar.
