Rift (Alex O'Rion Remix)
By Matt Lange
Born and bred in London, Anjunabeats started life as a university project in the year 2000. Today, Anjunabeats is one of the world’s best-loved dance labels. Over 700 releases spanning two decades wear the iconic Anjuna ‘A’.
Summer 2021 sees an eclectic selection of house and techno producers take centre stage, reworking nine Above & Beyond hits. ‘The Deep Mixes’ compilation features remixes of singles from Above & Beyond’s debut album ‘Tri-State’, as well as remixes of vocal anthems from their renowned 'Group Therapy’ and ‘We Are All We Need’ albums.
On July 29, Alex O’Rion delivers the final single from 'The Deep Mixes' compilation.
Dutch producer Alex O’Rion is a rising star on Hernan Cattaneo’s SUDBEAT label. Originally producing trance, O’Rion has now found his groove within deeper, progressive sounds. He is regularly supported by the likes of Nick Warren, Guy J, Guy Mantzur, and more.
Alex O’Rion’s extended remix of Matt Lange’s ‘Rift’ is the highest-selling track on last month’s ‘20 Years Of Anjunabeats: The Deep Mixes’ compilation, which sat in the #1 spot on the Beatport charts for over 2 weeks. Now, it is available on all music platforms. The groove-fuelled and melodic climax to James Grant’s ‘Anjunadeep: 03’ mix, Matt Lange’s ‘Rift’ (2011) is a showcase of the US producer’s unparalleled engineering skill.
"When Tony from Above & Beyond asked me to pick out a track to remix, I immediately thought of Rift by Matt Lange. Such a lovely tune, it was great fun remixing it." - Alex O’Rion
