Born and bred in London, Anjunabeats started life as a university project in the year 2000. Today, Anjunabeats is one of the world’s best-loved dance labels. Over 700 releases spanning two decades wear the iconic Anjuna ‘A’.
To celebrate, they’ve opened the vault for a handpicked group of artists from the label’s 20-year history. Each artist will sift through thousands of hours of music to create a definitive, mix of their all-time favourite Anjunabeats releases.
On 29 October, Super8 & Tab deliver the twelfth mix in the series.
“Finland’s Miika Eloranta (Super8) and Janne Mansnerus (DJ Tab) have been part of our family for decades. When we first met them, they were both accomplished club DJs and music producers in their own right. They were also friends of Paavo, our very own Finnish wunderkind. In the early days, Miika was recording with Paavo as Aalto. Janne had his own single on Anjunabeats, “Verso”.
Miika and Janne began collaborating on music in 2005. The magic was instant. “First Aid”, the debut Super8 + DJ Tab release, was operatic. It’s a style that they’ve continued to develop over their 15-year career. And what a career it has been. Their debut album, ‘Empire’, turns 10 this year, and the likes of “Black Is The New Yellow” and “Irufushi” have stood the test of the time.
Super8 & Tab’s 20 Years mix is heavily influenced by the first decade of our label.
Thank you Miika and Janne for all the years of companionship, on the road and in the studio.” – Above & Beyond
“First of all, it’s been great to be part of Anjunabeats’ 20 year journey and we feel privileged to do one of the mixes for this series. As you can imagine, it wasn’t an easy task to pick 13 of your favourite tunes from this massive catalog of anthems—and fit it all to one hour mix (almost impossible!). Selection was based on which tracks we have possible played most during our shows in the past 15 years—half our own productions, and half by our good friends in the Anjuna family. We hope you enjoy this mix as much as we enjoyed creating it. Cheers to one of the best labels on the planet! Thanks, Miika & Janne aka Super8 & Tab”
