I must admit...I didn't like this track very much at first. It just didn't sound like the sounds fit well together. But it slowly started to grow on me...

 

Now that I've heard the full track I actually really do enjoy it all. Feels like another Pistol Whip! :D

What a bland track...

Doesn't really fit the usual high-quality output on Anjuna.

Way worse than other 2013 releases like "Easy", "Lose Sight" or "Pink Skye".

Controversial track, but I really like it. As I said in the other thread, it needs a remix to bring out that lovely melody in the breakdown.

The label has changed sounds, god knows why they still tag their stuff under trance.

Don't be silly. Just stating that clearly Anjuna aren't putting out things like Kallocain anymore. If you still come here and abuse them for not doing so, you're stupid.

Ok.

 

Anjunabeats obviously follows some development on the EDM scene, and somewhere in that transition trance music died in favor of whatever it is these days. Whirlwind's question basically enscapsulates the confusion over this. That's hardly mindless abuse of anyone.

Well I dont know why they got on and featured on electro house on Beatport. But mind you its doing well on there, its number 21 on the electro chart. And thats a lot more mainstream then trance is so thats doing pretty well.

Every single release that Anjunabeats releases lately is all trouse and 75-80% of the forum slate it! Something obviously wrong here. You would think they would stop signing such garbage and sign tracks that define trance. Yes, I know everyone has different views on what REAL trance should sound like but its clear that most of the members on here prefer the old stuff.

Start Your own label or focus on another one. There's plenty of them out there.

This discussion has been had 1000 times before and is completely pointless and a waste of time. There is no 'confusion' whatsoever. If you're still 'confused' after 2+ years of Anjuna's new direction, then you're beyond help.

Perhaps other people who exist outside your little bubble enjoy it?

 

This forum does not represent the entire Anjuna fanbase.

I understand somewhat. Anjuna remain a great label no matter what they sign. Its not just the music you know, like its not just the players that are signed with football clubs, its the club itself that makes it dope. 

 

Lets just hope that 'when you loved me' remix package is coming soon, so this place gets a little more positive again.

That sounds cool...I think they need more remixes on 'big' releases for starters. 

 

My guess is the tracks in this type of category most likely won't be remixed. 

It still would make more sense to have a 3rd label, one that is experimental and just has tracks like these.
