Legendary Seven Lions remix of OceanLab classic ‘Satellite’ receives official release on Anjunabeats

Seven Lions

More than 12 years after Seven Lions uploaded an unofficial remix of OceanLab’s ‘Satellite’ onto his SoundCloud page, and now the remix finally sees an official release on Above & Beyond’s Anjunabeats label.

OceanLab is the chart-hitting side project of Above & Beyond (Jono Grant, Tony McGuinness and Paavo Siljamaki) and singer-songwriter Justine Suissa.

Melodic dubstep pioneer Seven Lions rapidly rose to prominence after winning a remix competition in 2011. His unique rework of Above & Beyond’s ‘You Got To Go’ (feat. Zoë Johnston) immediately grabbed the trio’s attention, sparking the beginning of a relationship that would span multiple collaborative performances between the two acts and an array of further Seven Lions remixes of Above & Beyond and Anjunabeats classics.

A vocal fan of Above & Beyond’s early works, Jeff’s (Seven Lions) own inimitable brand of high-octane, bass-saturated dance has always kept songwriting at its core. Some of his most recognizable Anjunabeats releases include his heavy-hitting remix 3LAU’s debut Anjunabeats smash, ‘Tokyo’ feat. XIRA, his unforgettable collaboration with Jason Ross and Paul Meany, ‘Higher Love,’ and more.

OceanLab’s ‘Satellite’ was released in 2004 to wide acclaim, peaking at number 19 in the UK singles chart in May 2004 and remaining there for a month. The track would become a cult classic, sung along to by fans at countless Above & Beyond shows.

With a discography spanning over two decades – including top 20 UK single ‘Satellite’ (2004), two top 25 UK dance albums (‘Sirens of the Sea’ in 2008 and ‘Sirens of the Sea Remixed’ in 2009), and two top 10 UK dance singles (‘Clear Blue Water’ in 2003, and ‘Satellite’ in 2004) – OceanLab cemented themselves as a seminal dance act with an undeniably unique sound, where Justine Suissa’s compelling voice, lyrics and melodies take center stage.

Satellite’ (Seven Lions Remix) is the third single from the forthcoming ‘OceanLab: The Anthology’ project, which celebrates the legacy of the iconic trance group through a series of new remixes, a digital compilation, and a limited edition vinyl box set product.

This year, Above & Beyond were the only British DJs to sell out two consecutive nights at Printworks as part of the iconic London venue’s closing season. Over the summer, their Group Therapy Weekender festival once again saw thousands of Anjunafamily descend on the Gorge Amphitheatre in Washington State. They also appeared at Tomorrowland in Belgium and Insomniac’s Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas. They recently returned to Red Rocks Amphitheatre to helm two shows alongside label stars from Anjunabeats and Anjunadeep.
