Super8 & Tab "Empire: Remixed" – Sunny Lax Interview

Posted by Anjunabeats On August - 15 - 2011



Hungarian born producer Sunny Lax aka Levente Márton has been synonymous with the dancefloor since his debut release (“P.U.M.A”/”Cassiopeia”) on Anjunabeats in February 2006. An instant hit, “P.U.M.A.” was supported by Above & Beyond, Paul Van Dyk and Armin Van Buuren, making his presence across the scene well and truly felt. Taking influence from a variety of music, and indeed life, Sunny Lax has become an experienced and versatile producer – enjoying a productive 2011 indeed. Having made waves with his Anjunadeep debut “Big Fat Kiss” (as Levente Márton ) earlier in the year, he has since gone to remix Above & Beyond’s anthem “Thing Called Love” , and also Super8 & Tab’s “Free Love” for “Empire: Remixed” LP. We caught up with the man to talk about influences, future plans, and “Free Love”…



You began producing at the early age of 13. What motivated you to start in the first place? What were you listening to prior to this?

“I was a geek in those times, and so it began with a CD attachment from a geeky PC magazine. There was tracker software on the CD with a lot of demo music, and I just tried it. My music taste has transformed since this time from the rap and R&B stuff to electronic music. At first, the German Line reached me with a Dream Dance compilation. Actually there were just a few real trance tracks on this; the compilation was dance really, but I liked it.”

Did you have a musical upbringing, or was it largely inspired from your own interest?

“I never learnt music, but I have never felt at a disadvantage. I think your own experiences are worth more than somebody just showing you things. And music is an ART not an exact science. You can learn the main rules but some rules just restrict you. And then we have to step over the limits.”

What does it mean to hear DJs like Armin Van Buuren, Paul Van Dyk and Above & Beyond playing your tracks?

“It was always my dream, so it means my dream has come true. It’s certainly a fabulous feeling. I remember when James Grant sent me an e-mail saying: “P.U.M.A. was played in ASOT as Tune of the Week and Paul van Dyk also played it in his show.” I just wrote back something crazy like “WOOOOOOOOOW. OMG, I can’t believe it!!!!!!” or something like that, and the answer back was just: “Welcome aboard!””



Your inspirations include Coldplay, Moby and Vangelis, who are far from the world of trance. Are there any trance DJs or producers that you particularly looked up to as you were going through your teenage years?

Certainly trance DJs have also inspired me. Mainly the biggest like Above & Beyond, Armin, PvD, Tiesto, ATB. There are some nice albums by these names still in my cabinet, and they are dear to my heart.”

With regards to “Empire: Remixed”, you revised and transformed a striking, downbeat track, into an uplifting trance anthem. How did you approach the remix?

“It wasn’t so difficult. The original track is 68 bpm, which is exactly half of a good uplifting track, so it works pretty well with my 135 bpm. Also I wrote a chunky groove underneath, and a whole new track with new chord progressions. That was the hard part, because I loved the original chords, but I tried to write something similar in mood with more party vibe. I didn’t plan to write an uplifting track but somehow it came.”



Who would you say has had the most influence on your career? Personally or professionally?

“Life has the most influence on me. Every good and bad thing can inspire, but my sweetheart is my muse, and she is also an artist; a photographer. But she also has very, very, good hearing. She always checks my tracks before I finish them. And she always has some instructions.”

Is there anyone in particular that you would love to collaborate with?

“It would be great to do something with Mat Zo.”

And finally, what should we expect from you five years from now?

More music, and I think more vocal tracks! And I hope to make my own album. Lately I’ve been focusing on my sound designer side, so there’ll be more sample libraries and sound-sets!”

Sunny Lax’s remix of Super8 & Tab feat. Jan Burton “Free Love” is featured on “Empire: Remixed”, which is released on Anjunabeats on 22nd August. To pre-order on Anjunastore click HERE.

Above & Beyond pres The Group Therapy Stages – Super8 & Tab Skype Interview

Posted by Anjunabeats On August - 11 - 2011



This summer Above & Beyond are hosting a series of stages across some of the biggest electronic dance music festivals Europe has to offer – celebrating the release of their second artist album “Group Therapy”. To get you in the mood we have caught up with some of the artists who will be performing on the Group Therapy Stages to find out more about what they will be playing and what you can expect to hear from them.

Firmly established as Anjunabeats best selling artists behind Above & Beyond, Super8 & Tab rose to the AAA List of the trance scene with last year’s “Empire” album. An 11 track journey that ranged from reflective downtempo moments to peak-time anthems, “Empire” left Mixmag “blown away on first listen” thanks to its diverse offerings and hit top 10 in the US and Finnish Dance Charts – completing Super8 & Tab’s transition from innovative trance architects to accomplished album artists.

In the 12 months since, Super8 & Tab’s star has continued to rise further still – becoming the highest ranked Finnish DJs in the DJ Magazine Top 100 DJs poll. Still topping the Beatport trance chart as standard, the Finnish duo now broadcast their SuperTab Radio show on 79 FM stations worldwide and have remixed everything from Above & Beyond’s classic “Can’t Sleep” (which features in this video) to Creep’s single “Days”, which featured the haunting vocals of The xx’s Romy Madley Croft.

If you didn’t already see them at Tomorrowland, Global Gathering, or Dance Valley can catch Super8 & Tab on Above & Beyond Group Therapy Stage at SW4. Click HERE for tickets.

An artist that is synonymous with classy, melodic trance music, Oliver Smith produces another piece of club gold in “Butterfly Effect” – his first release for Anjunabeats since last year’s brilliant “Chordplay”. Setting off with an insistent bubbling groove, “Butterfly Effect” adds waves of clean melody before arriving at a trademark Smith breakdown.

Blending a huge energy-charged riff with solid grooves and multi-layered arrangements, “Butterfly Effect” soars out of the drop and signals Smith’s return in epic style.

Oliver Smith’s own Club Mix adds a slightly alternative slant. Adding some extra grit to the grooves, the Club Mix also features a piano illuminated breakdown and a brighter, more intense interpretation of the lead riff.

Above & Beyond feat. Zoë Johnston "You Got To Go" – Release announcement and CD pre-order

Posted by Anjunabeats On August - 4 - 2011


Featuring the distinctive vocals of Zoë Johnston, “You Got To Go” is the latest single to be taken from Above & Beyond’s critically acclaimed second artist album “Group Therapy” – described by Mixmag as “the biggest artist album of the year”.

Following in the footsteps of “Sun & Moon” and “Thing Called Love”, the optimistic “You Got To Go” is a song about seizing the moment and taking control of the opportunities in front of you.

Inspired by Kyau & Albert’s energised club remix of the original album version, the A&B vs. K&A Radio Edit combines the melodic riff-driven energy of the Kyau & Albert remix with a more radio-focused approach – capturing the song’s beauty and orchestral touches perfectly.

The limited edition CD single also includes a brand new club mix from Above & Beyond themselves, the high-energy Kyau & Albert remix, two contrasting remixes from the legendary MJ Cole and an organic tech-house version from Dusky aka Solarity. Above & Beyond feat. Zoë Johnston “You Got To Go” will be released on Anjunabeats on 18th September.

Pre-order the CD single from Anjunastore HERE.
