In all of Above & Beyond’s history of music making, now is the time for some real magic. Their rendition of New Order’s ‘Blue Monday‘ is finally being released after being played throughout the course of six years.
You may have heard it in their ABGT 264 London show back in 2013 or an older one. And boy, has it resonated with us since. The trio’s remix of the song is stellar and brings us nostalgia with a proper trance twist. We see its release on January 20th, an appropriate release date as it ties with the title.
This track has been at the top of Anjuna wishlists for YEARS. After a while, many thought the track would never be released. The sample of the original New Order track was never cleared for release, and there was nothing to be done thanks to copyright. The remix has remained a staple in sets from 2013 right up through today. How did they get it released? Well, they actually went in and re-recorded the remix with their own vocals. Now not only does the track get a release, but it’s an original instead of a remix. Take that, copyright lawyers!
