Above & Beyond pres. OceanLab ‘Clear Blue Water’ (Trance Wax Remix)

A mainstay of the U.K. house and techno scene over the last 8 years as Ejeca, Belfast’s Garry McCartney has found a new following via his Trance Wax project. Reworking timeless 90s and early 00s tracks from the likes of BT, Future Sound Of London and , the only pressings have worked their way into the record boxes of , Bicep, Job Jobse and Denis Sulta, found radio support from the likes of B Traits and , and earned him a BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix in 2018.

In his first official digital release, Trance Wax combines with one of the most iconic acts of trance’s genesis, Above & Beyond pres. OceanLab.

Originally released in 2001, ‘Clear Blue Water’ saw Above & Beyond’s Jono Grant, Paavo Siljamäki and Tony McGuinness join forces with British singer Justine Suissa for the first time; a relationship that continues to this day.

Trance Wax’s update is as haunting as the original, laying Justine’s distinct vocals and the atmospheric lead riff over a modern groove.

Garry’s affinity to OceanLab dates back to his teen years; ”It was one of the first records I bought when I was at school, and it still gives me the same feeling it did the first time i heard it.”

‘Clear Blue Water’ is the first of two reworks on Anjunabeats this year, and provided a poignant moment at Printworks when Trance Wax played alongside Above & Beyond at two sold out London shows in April.
