Above & Beyond at Brixton Academy on Saturday 30th October represents Jono, Paavo and Tony’s biggest UK show yet and their final London date of 2010. Featuring a three-hour set from Above & Beyond themselves, the show also represents the biggest collection of talent from A&B’s Anjunabeats roster ever to appear in the capital. Joining Above & Beyond will be Anjunadeep’s Jaytech, the prodigious Mat Zo and 80s-inspired electronic house act Michael Cassette.
Above & Beyond’s warm-up DJ of choice, the ever-reliable Jaytech was responsible for the first ever artist LP on Anjunadeep with 2008’s ‘Everything Is OK’. Having remixed BT’s classic ‘Flaming June’ and mixed the acclaimed Anjunadeep 03 compilation alongside James Grant, the Berlin-living Australian has also spent 6 weeks at the top of Beatport’s progressive chart this year with ‘Milano’, his collaboration with Boom Jinx. Now putting the finishing touches to his second artist album, Jaytech’s groove-fuelled sound will be the perfect musical bridge to Above & Beyond’s headline set on the night.
Mat Zo is one of the most exciting big room talents to break through the ranks of late, the prodigious North Londoner has been responsible for classics such as ‘Synapse Dynamics’, ‘Lucky Strike’ and recent smash ‘Near The End’ and is a regular in the CD wallets of the world’s biggest DJs. Recently invited to remix Kylie Minogue, he is also surely the only artist to top the Beatport charts in two entirely separate genres at the same time, thanks to his storming drum & bass output for Hospital Records as MRSA.
Completing the main room line-up is Michael Cassette. A star performer on Anjunadeep, Michael Cassette is behind the classic 80s-sparkled groover ‘Shadow’s Movement’, as well as countless other Anunadeep classics, and is now preparing to release a long awaited debut artist album in November. Flying over from Finland especially, Michael Cassette will be opening the main room with a live set of their bright, 80’s inspired and Balearic-tinged electronic house – a sound which has found fans among disco blogs, electro DJs and the core Anjunabeats faithful alike.
