When Jono, Tony and Paavo set up their Anjunabeats label back in 2000, it was mainly an outlet for their ownburgeoning productions as (among other aliases) Above & Beyond. There was no master plan, just a dedication to quality and forward- thinking dance music.

Today, Above & Beyond's overspilling DJ diary reads like a departure board at Heathrow airport. Their debut artist album "Tri -State" sold countless copies worldwide and became a genre classic. Above & Beyond's songs are sung back to them by tens of thousands of clubbers at the biggest festival stages on the planet and their flagship gigs include launching Richard Branson's new SpaceShip for Virgin Galactic, rocking 1million people on Rio's Barra Beach, and a recent sell-out at Brixton Academy.

For this anniversary release, Above & Beyond look back over the Anjunabeats legacy by mixing 10 timeless tracks that remind us just how forward-thinking the label has been over its 10 years. As well as Above & Beyond's own classic "Can't Sleep", tracks like Bart Claessen & Dave Schiemann's "Madness" (I Prefer This Mix), Signalrunners "These Shoulders", Daniel Kandi's "Breathe" and Smith & Pledger's "Northern Lights" still sound as visceral, energising and uplifting as they did the first time round.

Of course, Anjunabeats is a label driven by forward motion and it is for that reason that Above & Beyond present a second of disc updated and reinterpreted versions of those 10 classic tracks, with highlights including a melodic house-influenced remix of Mat Zo's "Synapse Dynamics" by Russian trance prodigy Arty, a dark, throbbing tech transformation of Super8 & Tab's brooding but euphoric "Helsinki Scorchin" by Bart Claessen, and Super8 & Tab's respectful, futuristic version of Above & Beyond's "Can't Sleep".
