Above & Beyond – Black Room Boy (Club Mix)
Though we still have to wait for Anjunabeats Volume 10, Above & Beyond have released one of the compilation’s treasures early this week. Now available on Anjunabeats is the trio’s club mix of “Black Room Boy,” the final single from 2011’s Group Therapy. Already established as one of the album’s more dancefloor-ready tracks, the club mix emphasizes the bassline, takes some of the emotion out of the vocals and does away with instrumental bridges, opting instead for reverberating synths and a thumping beat. While not a dramatic departure from the original, the club mix successfully makes the track more accessible to those outside the trance family.
