7th Heaven [members: Jon Dixon & Andy Wetson] is a British remix and music production team founded in 2006, releasing their first single in the same year. Producing mainly uplifting house and dance-pop music, the duo are best known for remixing mainstream pop and RnB tracks as well as producing some cover versions of original tracks.

History[edit]

7th Heaven was started in 2006 by Jon Dixon and Andy Wetson, two of the team of people who worked at Almighty Records. During the late 1990s and early 2000s (decade), Wetson was employed at Almighty in sales and marketing, he had added responsibility for client liaison for the remixes Almighty created, reporting to Almighty’s CEO. Wetson left Almighty in 2005 when Almighty closed its London offices. He was also longtime resident DJ at Royal Vauxhall Tavern, a gay nightclub in London until early 2014, when became the headline DJ at XXL Nightclub. Jon Dixon was the lead producer up until 2002 when he left Almighty. He continued to work for Almighty on a freelance basis from 2004 until 2010. Jon has over the years headed up many of the Almighty remixes and in-house productions. They both played a major role in making Almighty a highly successful commercial remix team.[3]

In early 2008, the duo released Ain't Nothin' Goin' on But the Rent featuring diva Katherine Ellis, which was signed to Ministry Of Sound's pop imprint Hard2Beat. The song was originally a hit in 1986 for R&B singer Gwen Guthrie. 7th Heaven has been commissioned by a large number of dance and pop artists to record remixed versions of their songs and have had released over 250 remixes since its formation. In 2010, 7th Heaven became one of the UK's most prolific remix teams, producing in excess of 50 remixes (up to November 2010) across many of the major record labels.
