This summer Above & Beyond are hosting a series of stages across some of the biggest electronic dance music festivals Europe has to offer – celebrating the release of their second artist album “Group Therapy”. To get you in the mood we have caught up with some of the artists who will be performing on the Group Therapy Stages to find out more about what they will be playing and what you can expect to hear from them.
This interview is with Jaytech, the long chosen, warm-up DJ of choice for Above & Beyond, who 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.
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.) February 2011 saw the release of Jaytech’s most promising mix work to date, “Anjunadeep: 03″.
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.
