Anjunadeep is a sub-label of British trance label Anjunabeats, set up in 2005. It releases progressive house and deep house records, as opposed to the primarily uplifting and progressive trance of its parent label. It was founded by Tony McGuinness, Jono Grant and Paavo Siljamäki, known collectively as Above & Beyond, along with Ozgur Can, who later left the label. In addition, James Grant, brother of Jono Grant, hosts a monthly Anjunadeep edition of the parent label's radio show Anjunabeats Worldwide, and together with Jaytech, is also responsible for the A&R for the label. The label is now managed by James Grant.

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. .

Alerted to the pair by his brother Liam, producer Tony McGuinness called in Jono and Paavo to help him complete the Chakra remix while he was still working at Warners. With Grant and Siljamäki teaming up with McGuiness to form a trio, Above & Beyond became their artists name. They plucked the name Above & Beyond from a web page belonging to an American motivational trainer called Jono Grant which was stuck on the wall of the studio.

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 Deep includes in its back catalogue a variety of artists such as: RacknRuin, Leftwing & Kody, Hernan Cerbello, Davi, Answer 42, Above & Beyonf, Ad Brown, Boom Jinx, Danny Oliveira, Dusky, Andrew K, Amine Edge, Dnyo, Matt Lange, Lane 8, Paul Keeley, amongst many many others.
