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 15, Khen and Shai T deliver the sixth & seventh singles from 'The Deep Mixes' compilation.
Hailing from Tel Aviv, Khen is a renowned global touring artist known for inimitably deep, dark, and intense productions. Alongside the likes of Guy J, Guy Gerber and Sasha, he has emerged formidably out of the Israeli electronic music hot bed onto the international stage. Khen made his label debut on Anjunadeep in 2018 with his primal double cut ‘Closing Doors / Burgundy'. Now, his deep house remix of Above & Beyond’s “Every Little Beat” marks the Israeli producer’s first release on Anjunabeats.
Featuring the vocals of Richard Bedford (the voice of hits like "Sun & Moon" and "Thing Called Love"), "Every Little Beat" is an emotive single from Above & Beyond's acclaimed ‘Group Therapy’ album.
“Like thousands of producers in my generation, Above & Beyond has been a big inspiration to me over the last 20 years. To get to do an official remix for them is a dream come true,” says Khen.
Another Israeli, All Day I Dream label regular Shai T debuted on Anjuna with an appearance on last year’s ‘Anjunadeep Explorations 13’ EP. His productions have been regularly supported by Tony McGuinness in his popular deep sets on Twitch, and he's achieved multiple Beatport #1 singles in the last year. This remix is his Anjunabeats label debut.
“Sweetest Heart” also hails from Above & Beyond’s 2011 ‘Group Therapy’ album, and features the iconic vocals of frequent collaborator Zoë Johnston.
"It was a special feeling to remix an Above & Beyond track… re-touching Zoë Johnston's vocals felt like remixing a choir of angels,” Shai T says.
Above & Beyond - Every Little Beat / Sweetest Heart (The Deep Mixes) is available across all platforms on July 15.
