clear blue water trance wax remix

Trance Wax delivers a vibrant remix of Above & Beyond’s classic “Clear Blue Water”

One of the most representative tunes of Above & Beyond's Oceanlab project, "Clear Blue Water", gets a sparkling rejuvination by Trance Wax.

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 Sounds Of London and Delerium, the vinyl only pressings have worked their way into the record boxes of The Black Madonna, Bicep, Job Jobse and Denis Sulta, found radio support from the likes of B Traits and Danny Howard, 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; we were there on Saturday, and soon you’ll be able to read of our experience.
