Few tracks capture the indie-electronic spirit that inspires Above & Beyond quite like New Order’s iconic single from 1983: ‘Blue Monday’.
One of the most recognizable riffs in electronic music, ‘Blue Monday’ was a platinum-selling record in the U.K., inspiring a generation of producers – Jono, Tony, and Paavo included – with its innovative sound design.
Debuted during Above & Beyond’s sold-out show at London’s Alexandra Palace in 2013, this full-throttle remake recreates the classic riff and drums on modern hardware. Until today, it’s been a closely guarded, electrifying dance floors from New York’s Madison Square Garden to Glastonbury Festival.
With Above & Beyond’s label, Anjunabeats, entering its twentieth year, the band’s audacious homage to one of club music’s biggest anthems finally drops.
