“Northern Soul” remixes are beginning to roll in, and first up is a gorgeous, atmospheric take by none other than Spencer Brown.


Spencer Brown has quickly become one of the Anjuna Family’s favorite producers. As prolific as he is talented, he is well-known as the label’s reigning king of IDs, dropping unreleased tune after unreleased tune in his sets. Well, today is a great day for fans around the world, as his much-loved remix of Above & Beyond‘s “Northern Soul” has been released!

The remix incorporates a wide variety of layers to take on a character completely separate from the original, beginning with a pensive, haunting single chord and gradually building from there. The most impactful elements of the remix vary widely, from the deep, grounding bassline and urgent percussion to the shimmering arpeggios to the smooth, silky piano chords floating over the top of Bedford’s powerful, emotive vocals.

It’s one of those standout remixes that manages to incorporate all the most important elements of the original while simultaneously emerging as its own unique production. It is truly a sensational take, from a producer with an incredibly bright future ahead of him.

With his release, Spencer Brown offers up two versions – an edit, clocking in at 3’42”, and a 9’06” behemoth of a remix, which he teased earlier this week on his Instagram. Make sure you take a listen to both, but the nine-minute version is truly the standout here.

The original version of “Northern Soul” is a euphoric anthem sung in celebration of Detroit by none other than Richard Bedford, one of the iconic trio’s most beloved vocalists. Above & Beyond debuted the track at their milestone ABGT250 event to great fanfare and celebration from attendees, particularly when the group brought Richard Bedford onstage with them.

Over the years, she has expanded into a number of other styles and genres, especially techno and house. Originally from Chicago, she spent the better part of the last decade seeking out any electronic music she could find, and traveled the length of the country in search of some incredible moments at festivals like EDC, TomorrowWorld, and the Dirtybird Campout. Having since settled in Denver, she focuses her energies primarily on the house and techno scene around town and traveling to mountain and west coast festivals whenever possible.

  1. I was fortunate enough to hear him play it live in Houston for Something Wicked in Halloween weekend a couple of months back. I literally had tears in my eyes when I realized what I was hearing. I turned to some other Anjunafamily members screaming “ OMG it’s a NORTHERN SOUL REMIX” Spencer is a great guy I have had multiple opportunities to meet and talk with him
    This year and I can only say that I am excited to see what Spencer gives us in 2018!! Much Love Anjunafamily ❤️

    • He’s an incredible producer, and it’s always exciting to see what he comes out with! I’m a big fan of this remix (obviously) – I love the way he takes what is already a truly phenomenal track and puts a completely different spin on it. Really looking forward to seeing him open for Above & Beyond in LA!
