‘Take Me There’ is the debut collaborative single from two breakout Anjunabeats artists: gardenstate and GVN. It is the label’s 700th release.
gardenstate were formed after a chance meeting between Marcus Schössow and Matthew Felner. They’ve become a popular fixture on the label: ‘By Your Side’, ‘Surreal’, plus their raved-up take on Above & Beyond and Zoë Johnston’s ‘No One On Earth’ have all been well received. With a growing underground following and a series of spectacular ‘Inspirations’ livestreams under their belt, Marcus and Matt will be releasing much more music on Anjunabeats in 2021.
The other mind at work on ‘Take Me There’ is Gavin Brown, aka GVN. Marcus Schössow introduced Gavin to Anjunabeats in 2020, and a record deal soon followed. His label debut ‘I Don’t’ was released in January 2021 on the first Anjunabeats Rising EP, quickly followed by ‘Back To Me / Ethereal’. Both ‘Back To Me’ and ‘Ethereal’ were premiered by BBC Radio 1’s Danny Howard and Pete Tong on the same night.
Supported by Above & Beyond, Martin Garrix, Tiesto, Third Party and more, he’s a star in the making. GVN will be joining us on our stage at Creamfields in summer 2021.
Filmed in London by director Klement Brahaj, the official music video for ‘Take Me There’ stars enigmatic skateboard talent Jamie Griffin. Jamie was born in Ireland. With little access to skateparks, Jamie honed his craft in the backyard shed. Posting physics-defying tricks to social media, Jamie built a passionate online community. Today, he's a professional athlete.
