above and beyond live at the brixton o2 academy

It’s not common for electronic artists to play at the Brixton Academy, and doing so represents the popularity of any act that does so. So for their final date for the Capital of 2010, Above and Beyond trio Tony, Jono and Paavo will be taking centre-stage at the world famouse venue on Saturday 30th October for what will surely be a hedonistic night filled with unbelievable production and mixing talent no doubt spearheaded by their A&B and Oceanlab projects.

Above & Beyond are responsible for one of the most genre-defining trance albums of recent years with ‘Tri-State’. Respected as world class DJs, they are also rightly lauded as one of the most respected production outfits in electronic music with tracks like ‘Alone Tonight’, ‘Home’ and ‘Satellite’ proving their unique ability to connect with fans worldwide.

Their Trance Around The World show is aired on over 120 FM, Internet and Satellite radio stations across the globe and reaches 20 million listeners every week. In recent years, they have played to over 1 million people on Barra Beach in Rio Di Janiero and even been chosen to soundtrack the prestigious launch of Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo.

The trio are now globetrotting superstars, selling out shows across the four corners of the planet and redefining all that is great about dance music.

Coming off the back of their outstanding new ‘Anjunabeats Volume 8’ compilation, a fanatically attended Anjunabeach showcase at Cream in Ibiza (at Amnesia), the closing dance tent set at Glastonbury’s 40th year celebrations, and an appearance at the Electric Daisy Carnival, where they played in front of 60,000 people at the LA Coliseum, Above & Beyond continue to set the standard for others to follow.

Brixton Academy represents the latest step in their journey and their biggest UK show to date.

HIIO Feat. Terri B! – Something About You

February 28, 2013

South American duo HIIO (pronounced H2O) have arrived in 2013 with their attempt at creating a classic house tune. There’s definitely some classic house vibes here in the synths, the Planet Perfecto influence is pretty obvious. But this track is much slower than anything Planet Perfecto ever put out, and as a result it’s not… View Article

Arty, Nadia Ali & BT – Must Be The Love (Official Music Video)

February 24, 2013

BT is a legend of Trance production, Nadia Ali is a legend of Trance vocals. Any team up between these two is bound to be good, but when you throw in relative newcomer but excellent producer Arty into the mix as well, are we witnessing collaborative genius or are too many cooks spoiling the broth?… View Article

Kirsty – Hands High (Afrojack Radio Edit)

February 23, 2013

Who is Kirsty? We don’t know either, but this looks like her attempt to crack the commercial dance scene and she’s enlisted the help of Afrojack who provides remix duties. Apparently Sander Van Doorn said “supporting!” and David Guetta said “huge!” Although we’d question how much thought they gave to their answers when questioned. The… View Article
