REVIEW: Above & Beyond feat. Zoë Johnston - Always (Remixes) on Anjunabeats

A beloved ballad from Above & Beyond’s #3 Billboard Charting ‘Common Ground’, ‘Always’ (feat. Zoë Johnston) receives two contrasting reworks.

A prolific touring and production duo, Los Angeles producers SLANDER make their debut on Anjunabeats. With an eclectic catalogue including bass and trap releases on the likes of Monstercat and Mad Decent, Derek and Scott have built a loyal fan base with their heartfelt releases.

Anjuandeep’s go-to-guy for spaced out melodic house and techno, Eric Luttrell takes things in a deeper direction. Finding support from the likes of Annie Mac, Pete Tong and Sirius XM Chill with his latest ‘Intergalactic Plastic’ EP, his ‘Always’ rework is a suitably hypnotic affair, honed on the road while supporting Above & Beyond on the North American leg of their ‘Common Ground’ tour.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"] Above & Beyond with Always feat. Zoë Johnston have scored another golden hit but as the original was chilling the remixes are more than welcomed. Quality melodic deep progressive remake by Luttrell who proves that all the support he gets really deserves it big time. Superb warm deep pulsating driving basslines, warm punchy drums and mesmerising strings along with electronica synthy plucks to support and highlight the incredible delicate Zoe stunning voice. Travelling with certain balearic flavours, this is perfect material for your next walk by the beach. SLANDER provides an excellent dubstep version with cool drive and nice warm atmosphere. If you like fat electroish bass, atmospheric warm sounds and ethereal vocals mixed in perfection then this remix will fix you right and exact. #PureGold Love IT [/content]
