Italo-German innovator Vincenzo is set to release his much anticipated fourth artist album on Anjunadeep, following a string of underground cuts on revered labels Watergate and Mobilee. Boasting a rich musical history, stretching back to the thriving 90’s house scene in Hamburg - Vincenzo’s career spans three acclaimed artist albums and an impressive back catalogue of timeless singles on iconic labels like Dessous, Liebe*Detail and of course Anjunadeep.

Following on from 2011’s “Wherever I Lay Me Head” on Steve Bug’s Dessous Records (“an impressive piece of work” Resident Advisor), Vincenzo’s fourth album “The Vanishing Years” sees him develop the warm melodic sound on which he has built his reputation over the past two decades.

A string of singles on Anjunadeep over the last two years have marked him out as a fan favourite, whilst picking up widespread DJ support from house and techno legends like Laurent Garnier, James Zabiela, Mano Le Tough and Sasha. Sitting somewhere between the glossy deep house of Jimpster and David August and the after-hours grooves of Andy Cato and Bonobo, “The Vanishing Years” is a 13 track journey through Vincenzo’s subtle and soulful repertoire.

From the subdued melancholy of opening tracks “The Tree” and “What Are You?”, through to the energetic flow of “Just Like Heaven”, a unique take on The Cure’s 1987 classic, Vincenzo coaxes his listener in to a world of gentle tempos, organic melodic textures and beautiful, deeply personal songs. A true musical craftsman, he impressively showcases his diverse range on downtempo numbers “New Time” and “Today”, whilst the ambience of “The Vanishing Years” and “Walk Home John Boy” add a cinematic and contemplative streak to the collection.

Rich in dreamy musicality and layered with atmospheric texture, “The Vanishing Years” is an LP to sink deep into, and sees Vincenzo at his untouchable best. It also marks the fifth LP release on Anjunadeep, an A&R hotbed celebrated for releasing the debut LP from Dusky (the acclaimed “Stick By This”) - an act that have rapidly risen to the top of the dance music world, as well as nurturing talents such as Lane 8, Croquet Club, 16 Bit Lolitas and Martin Roth. The past 12 months have seen Anjunadeep further distinguish itself as one of the scene’s leading imprints, reaching 200 single releases and earning glowing coverage everywhere from Resident Advisor to Pitchfork, whilst receiving continued support on BBC Radio 1 from Pete Tong, Annie Mac, Zane Lowe and more.
