We don’t need to sell Above & Beyond to you. You should already know their legacy. Their self-proclaimed ‘trance in your pants’ style is full of melodic, uplifting, euphoric trance with vocals that fans across the world belt out each and every day. Every track they make becomes a top club hit. Their Anjuna label family is a leader in dance music.
Under the Anjunabeats label exists Anjunadeep, whose focus is on the progressive side of dance music. At the top of the Anjunadeep roster sits Jaytech, whose tracks have been played by everyone across all genres of EDM, from Armin van Buuren to Sasha and even Desyn Masiello! There’s nothing we love more than when the top DJs in the world bring more top DJs with them!
Above & Beyond
In a world awash with carbon copy producers, 25-year-old James Cayzer aka Jaytech is a bright exception. Classically trained as a pianist and a perfectionist when it comes to programming, his unique blends of deep melodies and sunny electronic grooves are equally at home in the DJ sets of Sasha or Desyn Masiello as they are in the stadium headlining appearances of Above & Beyond.
Despite his relative youth, Jaytech’s prodigious creativity and prolific work rate (he started producing at just 14 and released his first track at 16) have seen him rise up as the most consistent artist on the popular Anjunadeep imprint — even releasing the label’s first full artist album through 2008’s ‘Everything Is Ok’ (“Lush, melodic and soaked in electronic groove – a crossover gem” **** -DJ Magazine), and hitting number one in the iTunes dance chart with his Anjunadeep 02 mix compilation in 2010. (“Compilation of the month **** -Mixmag.)
Cementing his position as one of the leading lights within deep, uplifting electronic music, Jaytech’s monthly mix show ‘Jaytech Music’ now airs on radio stations across the globe and is downloaded by thousands as a monthly podcast. A window into his sound, it’s also the best place to hear Jaytech’s upcoming personal productions before anyone else.
Long chosen as the warm-up DJ of choice for Above & Beyond, Jaytech is now taking off as a headline DJ in his own right. Chosen to headline the Anjunadeep room for the label’s flagship party at the Miami WMC, he remains the number one headline DJ within the core Anjunadeep family.
February 2011 sees the release of Jaytech’s most promising mix work to date. Anjunadeep 03 is the latest annual label collection and features 29 largely unreleased tracks that range from deep, dark and hypnotic techno sounds to upbeat, uplifting electronic house grooves.
Proof of his rising stock behind the turntables, a packed DJ diary has recently taken in dates at Ibiza’s Amnesia, London’s Brixton Academy and Japan’s world-famous Womb. In the past year he has also traveled the vast corners of his Australian homeland with the Future Music Festival and taken his uplifting and perfectly paced sound on tour in America — more recently with Above & Beyond for their TATW350 event in Los Angeles, where his set was broadcast live across the globe to a listen-in audience of 30 million.
Often uplifting but never obvious, Jaytech is a force on an unstoppable rise right now. And his journey is only just beginning.
