Anjunabeats is a British record label, started by producers Jonathan "Jono" Grant and Paavo Siljamäki in 2000 which releases trance music. The first 12" record was titled Volume One, released under Grant and Siljamäki's alias, Anjunabeats, in 2000. As the label got the name Anjunabeats, they decided to produce under different aliases, such as Free State and Dirt Devils. They were soon joined by Tony McGuinness to form Above & Beyond.

In 2005, Above & Beyond launched the sub-label Anjunadeep aimed at releases that don't fit under the main label's focus on trance, allowing more diversity within the Anjunabeats brand. The trio also launched 2 other sub-labels, Anjunadigital that dealt with special remixes and releases of Anjunabeats and Anjunadeep tracks, and Hard On Recordings that was focused on Hard House.[citation needed]

Anjuna is the name of a beach in Goa, on India's western coast, which was a popular hippie destination in the 1960s and 70s, and is still popular with backpackers and other tourists.
