Above & Beyond – Thing Called Love (Oliver Heldens Remix)
As part of the 20 Years of Anjunabeats celebrations, “Thing Called Love” is revitalized by Oliver Heldens who provides a fresh new take on the original. The remix saw its debut on Above & Beyond’s Group Therapy 400 livestream last September with the original being released on Above & Beyond’s remarkable 2011 studio album Group Therapy. 2021 will mark the album’s 10-year anniversary. Group Therapy is also known for the classic Above & Beyond tracks, “Sun & Moon,” “Alchemy,” and “You Got To Go.”
“I’ve always really admired the guys and what they’ve accomplished with Anjuna and Group Therapy, so it was a great honor and pleasure to remix their iconic ‘Thing Called Love’ song, featuring Richard Bedford’s beautiful vocals, for the songs 10 year anniversary. It might sound a bit different than what people would expect from me, but I wanted to keep the trancey vibe of the original alive in this epic new remix. I can’t wait to play this out at festivals when they are safe to can happen again! Hope you like it too :)”Oliver Heldens
