A grower...

As someone that has almost religiously listened to Anjunabeats continuous mixes for many years now, this almost zen-like album has been a surprisingly effective release, demonstrating creative use of more laid-back, but nonetheless motivational, tracks, and testimony for this is that I only listen to their music when rowing in the gym, and this album has helped me to essentially 'let go' and just row, which despite what I had expected, had the reverse physiological effect, and helped the usual forty minutes feel like ten, while also allowing my body to take over as I 'switched off' my whirring mind to the almost hypnotic beat.

I will also add that this is the first time I have felt inclined to leave a review, purely because it deserves more praise than it's receiving here. If Grum is asked to perform another mix for this label then I would most certainly purchase a copy, primarily because I think he's managed to bridge the gap between relaxation and exertion perfectly (for me at least).

Disappointing

An incredibly dull, uninspiring feat of what you could call 'filler tracks' - nothing that stands out, nothing that comes close to what the previous anjunabeats worldwide collections have shown us. I am hoping it will grow on me.

very average unfortunately

Listened to this a few times all the way through and I have to say I'm a bit disappointed. It is mostly quite a dull album with many unimaginative filler tracks.
There are a few that were good productions but nothing outstanding.
It also seems like several tracks were 'inspired' by old productions.
'The Love You Feel' has very similar traits to a slowed down version of 'Diving Faces'...

About Grum

Grum is a Scottish electro producer from Leeds, England, who emerged to considerable fanfare in 2009 with the productions "Runaway" and "Heartbeats" and a bunch of remixes. Born Graeme Shepherd in Edinburgh, Scotland, he cites influences from the '80s (Giorgio Moroder, the Human League, New Order) and the contemporary electro-pop scenes (Cut Copy, Daft Punk, Air), plus French house (Les Rythmes Digitales) and Italo disco (Kano). Grum released several remixes in 2008, but it wasn't until 2009 that he first made a name for himself on the electro scene with a few productions of his own: "Runaway," "Sound Reaction," and "Heartbeats." Released on the Glasgow label Heartbeats Records, these tracks got airplay from some of the top radio DJs in the United Kingdom, including Radio 1 show hosts Zane Lowe, Annie Mac, Rob da Bank, and Jaymo & Andy George. In addition to the Radio 1 airplay, Grum was an Internet favorite championed by the tastemaking blog Discodust and many others within the music blogosphere. Among these early productions, "Heartbeats" proved especially popular, showing up on several different Ministry of Sound mix albums. In the meantime, Grum released a bunch of remixes, most notably Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance," Goldfrapp's "Rocket," Passion Pit's "To Kingdom Come," and Friendly Fires' "Skeleton Boy," and began establishing himself as a DJ on the international club scene. Grum's debut album, Heartbeats, included his big single as the title track, and was released by Ultra in 2010. ~ Jason Birchmeier
