anjuna beats



Anjunabeats is a British record label, started by producers Jonathan "Jono" Grant and Paavo Siljamäki in 2000 which releases trance music. The first 12" record was titled Volume One, released under Grant and Siljamäki's alias, Anjunabeats, in 2000. As the label got the name Anjunabeats, they decided to produce under different aliases, such as Free State and Dirt Devils. They were soon joined by Tony McGuinness to form Above & Beyond.

Above & Beyond is an English dance music group consisting of members Jono Grant, Tony McGuinness, and Paavo Siljamäki. Formed in 2000, they are the owners of London-based electronic dance music labels Anjunabeats and Anjunadeep, and also host a weekly radio show titled Group Therapy Radio. The trio is currently ranked at #17 on DJ Magazine's Top 100 DJs Poll for 2013.

Jono Grant and Paavo Siljamäki had met at Westminster University and kicked off the Anjunabeats label in summer 1999 with a track titled "Volume One ", This track was released in 2000 under the artist name "Anjunabeats" and found itself gaining support from Pete Tong, Paul Oakenfold and Paul van Dyk. For the duo's second track release in 2000 titled "Different Ways" and their third in 2001 titled "Release" they went under the artist name of "Free State" and Anjunabeats remained as the label name. .

2004 was something of a breakthrough year for Above & Beyond. As DJ's they regularly played at Godskitchen, Gatecrasher and Cream, as well as internationally. The boys also performed a critically-acclaimed 2 hour Essential Mix on Radio 1, leading Radio 1 resident Pete Tong to describe them as "the UK's new trance superstars'.

In 2005, Above & Beyond launched the sub-label Anjunadeep aimed at releases that don't fit under the main label's focus on trance, allowing more diversity within the Anjunabeats brand. The trio also launched 2 other sub-labels, Anjunadigital that dealt with special remixes and releases of Anjunabeats and Anjunadeep tracks, and Hard On Recordings that was focused on Hard House.

Anjuna is the name of a beach in Goa, on India's western coast, which was a popular hippie destination in the 1960s and 70s, and is still popular with backpackers and other tourists.

The label is focusing on both young producers, as well as established artists. The artists on the label come from a wide variety of countries, including: Australia, Finland, Canada, Poland, Israel, Denmark, United States, Germany, Italy, Romania, Russia, Hungary, Netherlands, United Kingdom, and Japan.

Prominent artists on the roster include Mat Zo, Arty (musician), Andrew Bayer, Super8 & Tab and Matt Lange.[
