Above & Beyond ‘Anjunabeats Volume 9’ Out November 13th : Listen to Exclusive Mini-Mix

ABOVE & BEYOND
Anjunabeats Volume 9
(Anjunabeats / November 13th)
Pre-order CD | iTunes

Above & Beyond’s 2011 has been all about one thing – landmarks. In January they celebrated 10 years of their ever-growing Anjunabeats label, before March’s 200th single release on the imprint; the genre defying anthem and Beatport #1 hit “Rebound” by Arty & Mat Zo.

In April, Jono Grant, Tony McGuinness and Paavo Siljamäki then embarked on their biggest ever tour of the US with a road blocked 22-date stretch, including two sold out shows at LA’s legendary Hollywood Palladium, with the first selling out in just 90 minutes – a new record for the legendary venue.

After seeing their “Sun & Moon” anthem playlisted by BBC Radio 1 and reach the top 15 of the Billboard Dance Charts in the US, the trio were ready to unleash their second artist album –Group Therapy. Earning them a cover star interview with DJ Magazine and described as “stadium dance with an incredibly personal feel” and “artist album of the year” in a Mixmag review, the string-laden album has been praised by critics and fans alike as a masterpiece in emotive, song-based electronic music.

In such a fast moving year, it seems fitting to close on a familiar totem pole in Above & Beyond’s annual calendar; their Anjunabeats Volume series. Capturing the sound of a label that has dominated Beatport charts and been supported this year by DJs as diverse as The Swedish House Mafia, Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren and David Guetta, Anjunabeats Volume 9 offers 2xCDs of predominantly unreleased, exclusive tracks from artists like Arty, Mat Zo, Super8 & Tab, Andrew Bayer, Jaytech, Maor Levi and Above & Beyond themselves.

Modern, melodic and emotive, Above & Beyond’s Anjunabeats sound remains unrestricted from one-dimensional genre restrictions. From the reflective, filmic pianos of Above & Beyond’s own unreleased “Tokyo” through hypnotic progressive sounds like Jaytech’s “Overdrive” to the synth-frenzy of Nitrous Oxide’s “iPeople” and the explosive funk-charged house fusion of Mat Zo and Arty’s brand new collaboration “Mozart”, Anjunabeats Volume 9 captures the full emotional intensity of the Above & Beyond DJ experience.

Also including Above & Beyond’s futuristic electro-edged anthem “Formula Rossa”, Anjunabeats Volume 9 covers the work of over 20 artists – a testament to the vibrant, tightly bound label family that Anjunabeats has evolved into.

Above & Beyond will be broadcasting the 400th episode of their Trance Around The Worldradio show via a special live eight hour broadcast from Beirut, Lebanon on 26th November – with guests Gareth Emery, Kyau & Albert, Mat Zo and Jaytech. For full info check out tatw400.com.

Electric Zoo 2011 Photo Gallery. 85,000 Fans!

ELECTRIC ZOO 2011
85,000 Electronic Music Fans Attend 3-Day Festival

Escaping the clutches of Hurricane Irene, Electric Zoo 2011 emerged this Labor Day Weekend in full force, with 85,000 attendees from 102 countries and 51 states, enjoying beats from the world’s best electronic dance music artists over three sun-drenched days on Randall’s Island Park in New York City.

More than 100 DJs and live acts provided the finest techno, trance, house, dubstep, electro and indie dance music across four stages. From iconic headliners Tiesto, David Guetta and Armin van Buuren along with Moby, John Digweed and Richie Hawtin, to newer talents like SBTRKT, Porter Robinson, 12th Planet, Michael Woods and Arty, Electric Zoo celebrated America’s exploding obsession with dance music. Skrillex’s epic stage dive, Tiesto’s confetti shower, thousands singing along to David Guetta’s tunes, an appearance by Snoop Dogg’s DJ alter-ego DJ Snoopadelic, and Armin van Buuren’s closing set complete with fireworks are just a few notable moments from what’s now established as one of the premiere electronic music festivals in the world.

To top off its stellar lineup, Electric Zoo went next level with spectacular visuals, from the Hilltop Arena’smassive custom-designed concave LED wall and the Red Bull Riverside’s mixed media playback cubes to Gizem Bacaz’s meditative Garden of EZ with Kate Raudenbush’s laser-cut steel Braindrop. Not to mention the dust-free tents, plethora of organic food choices, and no lines at the festival entrance, thanks to RFID wristband technology.

Check out our official Electric Zoo gallery of photos from 2011 here.

“Only the most serious-minded electronic music fans stream onto Randall’s Island. Now in its third year, the good-natured festival continues to offer a smart, varied crew of the best D.J.s and live dance acts in the world.” –The New York Times

“Randall’s Island became a multiplex of temporary dance floors, with a stadium-scale stage for headliners and three tents with club-quality surround-sound systems.” –Jon Pareles, The New York Times

“Capping off a summer that saw the biggest electronic music events in U.S. history, Electric Zoo marked its third and biggest year yet.” –Billboard.com

“The fest that began as a modest weekend event was something more, drawing crowds that were large even by music festival standards.” –The Wall Street Journal

“The three-day dance party on Randall’s Island had no shortage of new: New acts, new tracks and new grass (really!) filled the 24-acre island for 12 hours a day over Labor Day weekend… Despite the record number of attendees — over 85,000 fans showed up — Electric Zoo didn’t lose its sense of ease and comfort. Thanks to an increased number of restrooms, a variety of food vendors and the use of RFID wristband technology, which minimized entrance time, there were no lines to be found. And when you wanted to dance deep inside the tent, there was an actual dance floor and ample space to do so. When you’re talking about music marathons, these are small details that many festival producers overlook, the small details that can turn a great event into an exceptional one. –Huffington Post

“While it certainly is a spectacle, Electric Zoo was probably the happiest place on earth last weekend.”Village Voice

“…A line-up that reads like a who’s who of the electronic music world with Tiesto, David Guetta, Richie Hawtin and Luciano all playing.” –Mixmag

“I felt like I was playing the finals of the champions league or the superbowl. It was THAT big. WOW!” –Armin van Buuren

“Electric Zoo was sick! The crowd was unbelievable and brought an incredible energy to the city.”Tiesto

“As last year, Electric Zoo was totally amazing. To play in such an amazing city like New York, in front of ten thousand dancing and screaming people is a real highlight of my year I really enjoyed.”ATB

“It’s incredible to gather all those people for an EDM event like Electric Zoo. I’m very excited to follow the progression of house music in US when events like this turn out they way it did.”John Dahlback

“We’ve watched EZ become in 3 years something with a lot of promise into a festival that is paid attention to all over the globe. The line-ups are a good cross section of what’s really happening in dance music as well as a few cool and interesting surprises.”Gabriel & Dresden

“It was massive, and as an artist is always nice to be part of that, sometimes you look around and say, ‘wow I’m playing here’.”Guti

“I felt like playing Electric Zoo advanced me as an artist.” —Porter Robinson

“It was not only incredible as a performer but so much fun as a spectator. The collection of artists that performed was one of the best lineups I’ve seen in a while, let alone been a part of.”Nick from Super Mash Bros

Electric Zoo Payment Plans, Dust Reduction Efforts

Electric Zoo 2011: Party People
Payment Plans let you pay for your passes in installments
LAST DATE TO ORDER VIA LAYAWAY IS JULY 1

You know you want to go to Electric Zoo but you don’t have all the money for a pass available right now. If only you could pay a little now and a little later, right? Well we’ve got good news for you!

New in 2011, Electric Zoo fans have the option to purchase their pass on a payment plan. Layaway options are available when ordering online or by calling 888-512-SHOW (7469). There are 2 different Payment Plan options:
  • 50% Down: This plan allows you to pay 50% of your order total plus service fees now, with the remaining 50% automatically deducted from your card on August 1, 2011.
  • 30% Down + Equal Payments: This plan allows you to pay 30% of your order total plus service fees now, with the remaining balance automatically deducted in equal payments on July 1st and August 1st, 2011.
Let’s clear the air: Dust reduction efforts for 2011
When Electric Zoo opened up last year, on Saturday September 4 at 11am, the Randall’s Island Park lawn was lush, long, and seemingly healthy. But the dancing and frolicking of 25,000 pairs of feet coupled with the unusually dry summer took a toll, and by the end of the day, the grass had been trampled and a lot of dirt had been kicked up into the air. When the wind gusted – especially around the Sunday School Grove, but in other parts of the festival grounds too – the dust was downright obnoxious. Many of you, understandably, have expressed concerns about this. We hear you, and we’ve been working on measures to address this problem in 2011. We’re serious about doing everything we can to minimize the dust, so we can ALL breathe easy and focus on what we love – the music!
Here’s a list of things we’ve put in place to reduce the dust:
  • Flooring will be used in all of the tents. This means that where all that dancing is going on, the grass will be protected and dirt won’t be kicked up.
  • Dirt service roads will be covered with flooring. As our crew travels in golf carts and other vehicles to get from place to place around the perimeter of the festival grounds, there’ll be far less dirt stirred up.
  • Making use of existing pavement for high traffic areas, including the area directly in front of the main stage. The main stage will be moved back this year in order to create more space. This will mean that a large area directly in front of the main stage will now be situated on pavement rather than grass. So when you “tear up the dancefloor” in front of the main stage, you’ll no longer be tearing up grass and kicking up dirt at the same time
We’ve also hired lawn specialists to consult with and work with our friends at Randall’s Island Park to improve on the maintenance of the field and to get it as healthy as possible before Electric Zoo. At their recommendation, we have also taken these measures:
  • Installed additional irrigation in early Spring
  • Lawn aeration
  • Reseeding, fertilizing and adding gypsum
Stay tuned for more lineup announcements!

TAO Las Vegas 5 Year Anniversary w/ Erick Morillo!

TAO Las Vegas Logo

TAO Nightclub presents
ERICK MORILLO
TAO Las Vegas 5 Year Anniversary
Memorial Day Weekend
Sunday, May 29, 2011

With Las Vegas now firmly established as an international hotspot for house music, TAO Las Vegas is going back to where it all started. On Sunday, May 29, TAO Nightclub presents the return of international superstar Erick Morillo for an epic 8 hour set to celebrate the fifth year anniversary of a legendary Memorial Day Weekend event that first put Vegas on the dance music map.

Erick Morillo has the unique ability to capture the energy of a room and hold it until the sun rises. TAO has been able to build on his energy over the past five years and we’ve created a holiday within a holiday every Memorial Day Weekend and this year will be no different,” said Jason Strauss, Partner, TAO Las Vegas.

In the last five years, Memorial Day Weekend at TAO Las Vegas with Erick Morillo has become a veritable institution, exploding from 1,000 to 7,000 people last year and drawing clubbers from all over the world. The famed Asian-inspired nightclub, complete with 20-foot Buddha statue and state-of-the-art audio system, is the perfect backdrop for this larger-than-life house music pioneer. Indeed, the revolutionary night of house music has served as a catalyst in making Vegas one of the biggest markets for house music in the world, and TAO is ready to continue the tradition.

Erick Morillo says, “My Vegas love affair all started with TAO and the Memorial day weekend party has become a summer kick-off institution. We really jump started the entire house music revolution here that is now exploding in Vegas today and it’s really special to come back to play again for their 5 year anniversary.”

Morillo is the owner of Subliminal Records and a platinum-selling artist whose hits include Reel 2 Real’s “I Like To Move It,” “Break Down The Doors” and “Live Your Life” (with Eddie Thoneick, featuring Shawnee Taylor). At the onset of 2011, he launched a celebrated monthly DJ residency at the newly minted dance music mecca Marquee Nightclub & Dayclub at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. This summer he returns to Ibiza for his annual residency this year dubbed “Subliminal Invasion,” with a companion CD to be released in June, along with his latest single “Stronger” on Subliminal Records.
