Above & Beyond release first collaboration in eight years, ‘Long Way From Home’ with Spencer BrownAbove And Beyond Long Way From Home 1

Above & Beyond and Spencer Brown have decisively aligned their revered electronic talents on a somber, yet dance-friendly new track, “Long Way From Home.” The song received its advantageous debut at A&B’s Group Therapy 300 celebration in Hong Kong earlier this past fall. Now, the feverishly anticipated release is finally here, through, where else, but Anjunabeats.

“Long Way From Home” has gained notoriety ahead of its release as the first time Above & Beyond have officially collaborated with another producer behind the scenes since 2010 (their last was “Anphonic” with Kyau & Albert.) Of course, they’re frequent collaborators with vocalists, but Spencer Brown just solidified his place in the Anjunabeats history–and in its future–through landing this spot. The collaboration feels highly organic, as “Long Way From Home” contains a distinctly dynamic sound from both parties. A departure from the anthems we often see from Above & Beyond, it’s impeccably deep and plaintive, while keeping close ties to multiple entrancing melodies along the way.

The track closes out a year of frequent output for the Above & Beyond enterprise, emphasizing a heavy touring schedule accompanied by a firm outpour of releases. Additionally, Spencer Brown saw a remarkable turnout this year for his chart-topping progressive mix-album, Illusion Of Perfection.

Above & Beyond Team Up With Spencer Brown For Their Latest Euphoric Single – ‘Long Way From Home’

This post was originally published on this site

Anjunabeats has made a whirlwind of a comeback in 2018. After being one of the most impressive labels for over a decade, the London-based imprint suffered from a case of complacency. That being said, over the final months of 2018, A&B’s label has recruited new and former talents to once again pull the label up

The annual three day event returns to South Lake Tahoe, California on December 29-31 for its eighth year. Terms of the deal had not yet been disclosed at time of writing.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 64

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 64Deters Beat Lab@0.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA managing editor Robyn Dexter. With a taste that can only be described as eclectic — to say nothing of a name that lends itself to punnery — DA is happy to present a selection of tracks personally curated by Dexter for your listening pleasure.

Listen in playlist format here.


There’s something so intriguingly uplifting about this remix of Above & Beyond‘s “Happiness Amplified” with Richard Bedford. Josep takes the original’s infectious melody and amplifies it (pardon the pun) with a guitar riff that adds a whole new level to an already incredible track. Bedford’s optimistic vocals carry this compelling remix in a powerful way, as it transforms from a trance track to a progressive rock-inspired rework.

warner case‘s good time heart dance arrived just a few days ago, featuring two tracks primed for both easy listening and the dance floor. After delivering “good time” in September with Zak Downtown, the New York artist returns in full force to shore up the full EP via the lighthearted “heart dance.” This one is highlighted by spunky horn stabs and an irresistibly groovy beat. Spencer Ludwig lends his vocals to the EP’s second track, launching “heart dance” into its full funky potential.

Hidden Face isn’t messing around on his latest pieces of work. The Parisian artist has been diving deep into the melancholy dance music realm, channeling ZHU-like vibes with his mystery-shrouded melodies. His newest, “You Don’t Know,” is another dominant display of his style. A minimalist bouncing beat contrasts with vocals that call out, “you don’t know.” Hidden Face takes the time to let each note sink in, and that’s perhaps part of what makes his style so compelling.

Hillsdom and Novokan3 make their return to Pilot Records with a two-part collection of drum & bass goodies. “Obsession” and “Colours” impeccably showcase their style of drum & bass: laid-back and packed with emotion. In “Obsession,” they create a mellow atmosphere that features warped, wonky synths and emotive vocals. A mid-song interlude takes a break from percussion to deliver a smooth-gliding melody before then ramping back up into a rapid drum & bass rhythm.

This. Goes. So. Hard. Known for his well-crafted soundscapes, Au5 takes on Detroit industrial artist Celldweller‘s “Eon.” This seven-minute venture rattles the ribcage with its grinding dubstep elements, intensified by Celldweller’s screamo interludes. Fondly dubbed “metalstep” by a SoundCloud commenter, this classification seems to fit this heavy hybrid perfectly. Both artists’ otherworldly styles mesh incredibly in this remix, highlighting the best of each of their talents. Color me impressed.

Andrew Bayer unveils gargantuan club mix of LP standout, ‘Open End Resource’

Andrew Bayer unveils gargantuan club mix of LP standout, ‘Open End Resource’Andrew Bayer Open End Resource Club Mi

Andrew Bayer‘s sound is not only tailor made to his home label Anjunabeats, but it defines it. His recent In My Last Life album checked most of the usual boxes: Evocative vocals from album collaborator Alison May, soaring and stadium filling pads and textures, and powerful chord progressions. But the album forwent the pounding, festival-ready trance percussion of the artist’s earlier offerings for downtempo, stuttering breakbeat rhythms. Now, Bayer has reimagined Above & Beyond favorite “Open End Resource” as a full-fledged arena smasher, aptly titled the “In My Next Life Mix.”

Refreshingly, the new arrangement still boasts some of the juiciest melodic elements of the original, including those buttery electric guitar strums and angelic atmospheres. Added to the mix are buzzing drops that sound instantly worthy of Bayer’s gorgeous buildups. An extra special touch not found in the original is an added breakdown featuring truly cavernous synth stabs, leading into a steady build that’s sure to be a certified moment on any dance floor.

Above & Beyond celebrate Group Therapy’s 300th episode in Hong KongAbove Beyond

For the past six years, Above & Beyond have been thrilling listeners all over the world with their dynamic radio show, Group Therapy. The debut episode aired in November 2012 and was broadcast live from Bangalore. Here, nearly six years later, the trio is celebrating a huge milestone — their 300th episode — from Hong Kong.

On Sept. 29, the group brought their tercentenary episode to China, featuring sets from Andrew Bayer, Ben Böhmer, Grum, Ilan Bluestone, and Spencer Brown. The event was brought to fruition after the success of last year’s event at The Gorge. While speaking with Billboard Radio China, the trio talked about how they could possibly top last year’s ABGT250.

“Last year’s ABGT250 Weekender at The Gorge was a magical experience but also left us wondering, ‘How do we follow that?’ The answer was to go for something completely different, and Hong Kong and the Far East represent a new frontier for Group Therapy, at what is an exciting and groundbreaking time for electronic music in the region.”
