Above & Beyond feat. Gemma Hayes – Counting Down The Days (Yotto Remix)

Posted by

Fresh from Breaking Bad on the MainStage of Electric Daisy Carnival (which saw Bryan Cranston resurrect his infamous Walter White character on stage with the band in front of 80,000 people), UK trio Above & Beyond release their latest single ‘Counting Down The Days’.

Taken from their Billboard dance number #1 album ‘We Are All We Need’, ‘Counting Down The Days’ is also Above & Beyond’s first track to feature the vocals of former Mercury Music awards nominee Gemma Hayes.

“We first came across Gemma through a bootleg mix that found its way on to our Group Therapy radio show ,” said the band’s Jono Grant. “Coming from a folk background, her voice has an honesty and emotion to it that really stood out from the pack and felt a perfect match for this song co-written with Victoria Horn.”

Set against a laidback summer groove, Gemma’s hazy vocal tones perfectly capture the melancholia of the drifting relationship on the Radio Edit.

Hotly tipped Finnish star Yotto’s takes things in a deep and dreamy direction, while London based Shur-i-kan adds a refined deep house flavour to the mix, fresh from his excellent ‘My Love’ on Anjunadeep which found favour with everyone from Dusky to Radio 1’s Annie Mac. Hospital Records sharp shooter Keeno is on point again with his melodic d&b rework, while US duo Dan Davis and Chris Nelson, aka Judah, go funk heavy for their groovy Pryda-esque interpretation.
