Above & Beyond Ask ‘how does it feel?’ With Cover of New Order classic, “Blue Monday”

22 January 2020 - - The DJ List


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. Fans have long awaited its release.

With Above & Beyond’s label, ANJUNABEATS, entering its twentieth year, the band’s audacious homage to one of club music’s biggest anthems dropped Monday the 20th of January (a.k.a. “Blue Monday”). How does it feel? Pretty good, if you ask us.
