I have been writing some pretty house/dance oriented posts lately, so I thought I would bring it back into focus with “Anjunabeach” by Above & Beyond. This atmospheric instrumental track is a current favorite of mine.
The track opens up with single deep piano notes at 0:27. More layers slowly add to the complexity of the track and the rising volume takes us into 0:55 where the tension really starts to build. At 1:31 percussive notes of increasing frequency serves to ratchet this track into place, and at 1:55 the stored energy is released and we are catapulted through the rest of the track.
