Anjunabeats is a British record label, started by producers Jonathan "Jono" Grant and Paavo Siljamäki in 2000. The label exclusively releases trance music. In 2000, Anjunabeats released its first 12" record, titled Volume One, which was released under Grant and Siljamäki's alias. 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 trance focus, allowing more diversity within Anjunabeats. The trio also launched 2 other sub-labels, Anjunadigital that deals with special remixes and releases of Anjunabeats and Anjunadeep tracks, and Hard On Recordings that is 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 1970s, and is still popular with backpackers and other tourists.
