Anjunabeats is pleased to release the new single from progressive duo gardenstate, ‘Surreal’, their first original on the label.
A titan of progressive trance, Sweden’s Marcus Schössow cut his teeth in the late 2000’s. He’s released music on Coldharbour Recordings, Spinnin’ Records and Tone Diary, and was tapped by the legendary Axwell & Ingrosso (Swedish House Mafia) for remixes of ‘Sun Is Shining’ and ‘More Than You Know’.
Marcus is also no stranger to the Anjunafamily, releasing a one-off EP on Anjunadeep in 2010 under his ‘1985’ alias.
gardenstate came about after a chance meeting between Marcus and American producer Matthew Felnerand in 2008. The pair started creating music together last year and have already supported the likes of Eric Prydz, Sander Van Doorn, Ferry Corsten, Gabriel & Dresden and Mat Zo. They’ve released on imprints like Yotto’s Odd One Out, Joris Voorn’s Spectrum and Cosmic Gate’s Wake Your Mind.
One of two gardenstate tracks featured on Above & Beyond’s Anjunabeats Volume 15 compilation, ‘Surreal’ is just the tip of the iceberg. Expect much more from gardenstate on Anjunabeats in the year ahead.
