Above & Beyond Release Anjunabeats Volume 10
Worldwide Release Date: March 5
 

It was way back in the year 2000 when Above & Beyond’s legendary Anjunabeats label put out their first release – a production from the label bosses that became an underground club smash. While thousands of other labels have come and gone in the 12 years since, Anjunabeats now stands tall as one of the world’s most respected and consistent electronic music labels, responsible for nurturing a wide range of talents, from the UK hotshot Mat Zo, to the Russian phenom Arty and the eclectic Andrew Bayer.

It is this renowned commitment to A&R and quality control that shines through in the landmark 10th edition of Above & Beyond’s label showcase series. On Anjunabeats Volume 10, Above & Beyond present 30 exclusive and largely unreleased tracks from over 20 artists who make up their diverse and talented label family.

Anjunabeats Volume 10 is the latest landmark for Above & Beyond. In the past 18 months, the London-based trio have become the only act to win the prestigious BBC Radio 1 ‘Essential Mix Of The Year’ for the second time, as well as being the only act to grace the front covers of both Mixmag and DJ Mag within the same period. With a non-stop global touring schedule, they have sold out two consecutive shows at the legendary Brixton Academy, and 15,000 tickets in Los Angeles over three consecutive nights at The Shrine. This in addition to hosting their own ‘Group Therapy’ stages at New York’s Electric Zoo Festival and Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas. Their upcoming Anjunabeats Volume 10 Launch Party, being held at New York City’s Roseland Ballroom on February 16, sold out in less than 3 hours. The full lineup for this show is coming soon.

Above & Beyond Celebrate Milestone 450th Radio Show w/ Group Therapy India

Above & Beyond will celebrate their milestone 450th radio show on November 10th with Group Therapy India, teaming up with the Sunburn Festival promoters Submerge. TATW450 will take the form of a marathon 8-hour broadcast with a host of Anjunabeats’ most cutting-edge acts playing alongside Jono, Tony and Paavo, plus live participation from those listening in.

TATW450 inIndiawill take the Group Therapy experience to its global limits – with fans all over the world connecting and sharing their experiences in real time. If you’ve experienced Group Therapy in your own city, now is the time to experience it with the whole world tuning in.

Having named their legendary Anjunabeats label after a beach in Goa, Above & Beyond’s connection with India is deep and long-standing. With the country’s club scene growing rapidly, and a huge thirst for electronic music in the region, India was the perfect destination for this prestigious show. The first full Group Therapy production in India, this it the natural follow up to A&B’s memorable set at Sunburn Festival last December.

“India, its people and music have always had a special place in our hearts,” said A&B’s Paavo Siljamaki. “Not only does the dance music culture span thousands of years there, we’ve witnessed incredible growth of the electronic music there since we first started Anjunabeats. TATW450 will be broadcast in the country that was the starting point for everything we do. Let your friends know, join us online, and together in India we’ll all make this our biggest global celebration to date.”

Nikhil Chinapa from Indian promoters Submerge, said: “Ten years ago when we started a dance music collective called Submerge. We never expected to get this far, this soon. The support that Above & Beyond have extended to the scene in India has been critical in bringing about this change. TATW has thousands of fans across India and it has been a key factor in educating and entertaining fans of dance music across the country.”

Over the past 18 months, Above & Beyond have toured their Group Therapy themed show across the globe – an epic, no expense spared production with immersive visuals, live messaging from the band and support from Anjunabeats’ finest acts.

The venue and line-up up will soon be released, along with details of all the ways you can get involved in this event. To sign-up for priority access to tickets and advance information on every aspect of the show, visit www.facebook.com/aboveandbeyond.

COMMUNITY: Mat Zo Embarks On His Biggest Tour of North America To Coincide with ‘The Bipolar EP’ Out On February 13

Mat Zo Embarks On His Biggest Tour of North America
10-Dates To Coincide with ‘The Bipolar EP’

With his diverse four-track ‘The Bipolar EP‘  priming itself for release, Anjunabeats rising star Mat Zo is embarking on his biggest tour of North America yet – including dates at San Francisco’s Ruby Skye, Toronto’s Guvernment, Denver’s Beta and Chicago’s Sound Bar. The 10-date tour will come to an end at Above & Beyond’s Group Therapy Miami party on Bayfront Park, site of the Ultra Music Festival, on Thursday, March 22 alongside Above & Beyond, Arty, Boom Jinx and Jaytech [#GroupTherapyMiami].

With Skrillex, Axwell, Radio 1 and MTV Dance all supporting his recent anthem “Mozart” (with Arty), the fast rising Mat Zo returns with an eclectic four-track blast of his innovative talents – each track a distinct dancefloor juggernaut in its own right.

With recent eclectic sets at events like the Bugged Out! Weekender and his drum & bass material as MRZO and MRSA for Hospital Records supported by the likes of Camo & Crooked, Zo is fast asserting himself as unique electronic talent; something ‘The Bipolar EP’ reinforces further by blending influences as varied as Daft Punk, Diplo, Deadmau5 and even classic US house and twisting them into bold big room sounds.

Surging the raw funk of Daft Punk at their punkiest against the deeply musical strains that Zo is renowned for, the lead track “Bipolar” lives up to its name by flitting between clicky grooves, electro synth stabs and subtle melodic waves in devastating dancefloor fashion.

A homage to Mat’s love of classic dance across the 90s and early noughties, “It’s Yours” is as inventive take on Jon Cutler & E-Man’s funky house classic “It’s Yours”. Already a big room anthem from Mat’s recent sets at Bugged Out! Weekender and TATW400 in Beirut, “It’s Yours” builds waves of infectious melodic funk into a climatic drop.

A bridge between the carnival sounds of acts like Diplo and Major Lazer and the stadium filling trance world, “Ring On It” is an experimental bleep and bass-heavy explosion of carnival vibes – built around a subtle but undeniably epic riff.

Named after the world famous cellist, closing track “Yoyo Ma” is a driving melodic tech odyssey that draws influences from Eric Prydz’s most epic Pryda work, big room techno and the classier end of trance.

Celebrating the ‘The Bipolar EP,’ Mat has also released an hour long mix of progressive grooves, quirky mash-ups and the innovative tracks from EP itself.

COMMUNITY: Above & Beyond Announce #GroupTherapyMiami with Arty, Mat Zo, Jaytech and Boom Jinx

Above & Beyond 
Announce #GroupTherapyMiami
with Arty, Mat Zo, Jaytech and Boom Jinx
 
Miami Music Week 2012
Thursday, March 22nd
Bayfront Park Amphitheatre
 
Above & Beyond: Paavo Siljamäki, Tony McGuinness, and Jono Grant
 
Above & Beyond are bringing the Group Therapy experience to Miami Music Week 2012 with a special event at the legendary Bayfront Park Amphitheatre on Thursday March 22.
 
Joining Above & Beyond will be an all-star quartet of producers from their scene-leading Anjunabeats label – Mat Zo, Arty, Jaytech and Boom Jinx. Covering the full spectrum of the Anjunabeats sound, the event runs from 5pm to 11pm EST.
 
21 year old Arty should need no introduction having taken the trance and house worlds by storm in the past 18 months – melding them together in a way not seen before. 2011 saw him rise to #25 in the DJMag Top 100 poll, collaborate with Dirty South, perform NYE in New York City for a sold-out crowd of 10,000 revelers, plus gain support from the likes of Above & Beyond, Armin van Buuren, Swedish House Mafia, and of course, Avicii.
 
Next to take on Miami is Anjunabeats’ very own ‘”Superman” Mat Zo, also just 21 years of age.  He has consistently cemented a reputation as one of the label’s most prolific, innovative and forward-thinking artists – with recent hits including “Bipolar”, the Skrillex-supported “Mozart” (with Arty) and “Superman” itself. The only man to top the Beatport trance and drum & bass charts simultaneously, Zo is currently working on his hugely anticipated debut artist album, which is primed to showcase his maverick talents in full effect.
 
Having topped the iTunes Dance Album Chart for two years running with his Anjunadeep 02 & 03 compilations, rising Australian DJ Jaytech is again mixing Anjunadeep 04 this coming February and has a new artist album planned for the summer. Jaytech is a man on a mission and the perfect choice to warm up a buzzing #GroupTherapyMiami crowd.
 
Finally, also joining this colossal Group Therapy Miami line up is Norwegian uber-producer Boom Jinx, one of Anjunabeats’ most talented, prolific and eclectic artists, with recent work ranging from the massive vocal trance anthem “Phoenix From The Flames” to deep progressive gem “Pieces Of The Puzzle” with Soundprank.
 
Above & Beyond’s Group Therapy show is centered around their critically acclaimed second artist album (“the biggest artist album of the year” – Mixmag), which features Billboard Dance hits like “Sun & Moon” and “Thing Called Love” – as well as their forthcoming single “Love Is Not Enough”. The show’s production takes the DJ set up into the realm of concert theatre, with emotive visuals, live video messaging from the band and a story-telling theme, combining to create a unique dancefloor experience for fans.
 
Check out the teaser of the emotional, cinematic official music video for “Love Is Not Enough” here.

 
Above & Beyond and their Anjunabeats label have also been nominated for a host of awards in the IDMA Final Ballot – which will be announced during Miami music week. Above & Beyond have been nominated for Best European DJ and Best Artist (Group), with their huge “Sun & Moon” anthem in the Best Trance Track category and Anjunabeats in the Best Label category. Completing their nominations is Trance Around The World, which is in the running for the Best Radio Mix Show. You can vote here.
 
The #GroupTherapyMiami event forms part of the Ultra Live series. Tickets are on sale here.
 
Above & Beyond is currently on the road for Part 1 of their Group Therapy North American Tour. Group Therapy Part 2 coming May & June 2012 – Dates To Be Announced! Check www.aboveandbeyond.nu for updates.

Above & Beyond Debuts Second Artist Album ‘Group Therapy’

Debuts Second Artist Album
‘Group Therapy’

Firmly established as the UK’s most popular DJ/producers, Above & Beyond are at a tipping point with the release of their second album Group Therapy, music videos for its acclaimed singles Sun & Moon and Thing Called Love, and Group Therapy North America Tour with several sold-out dates. The album out today is already #1 on iTunes Dance Albums/US.

Bringing Above & Beyond’s renowned blend of classic song-writing values and sleek electronic production into a contemporary context, their second album ‘Group Therapy’extends their appeal into the furthest reaches yet. Combining elements of trance 2.0, house, electronica and even modern classical, ‘Group Therapy’ is a complete listening experience that includes the bittersweet orchestral beauty of piano opener “Filmic,” the dark tale of edgy electronic-house anthem “Black Room Boy” and the ambient electronica of “Sun In Your Eyes” – a track which recalls ambient’s early-90s glory days of Global Communication, Pete Namlook et al. With tales of loves lost, found and confused at Group Therapy’s heart, highlights like “Alchemy” and “You Got To Go” (both sung by former Faithless/Bent vocalist Zöe Johnston) are the antithesis of throwaway club music – adding depth, meaning and classic songwriting values to an album destined to go down as one of electronic music’s classic moments.

Group Therapy’s first single “Sun & Moon (feat. Richard Bedford)” is a synth-driven stadium dance number that has hooked major props from dance music mogul Pete Tong and been playlisted on BBC Radio 1 – topping both the iTunes Dance and Beatport Trance charts along the way. The latest single “Thing Called Love’ (feat. Richard Bedford)”features chunky electro basslines with forward-thinking, euphoric melody drops, creating a powerful song-driven anthem that upholds Above & Beyond’s unique ability to marry innovative electronic grooves with stirring, thoughtful lyrics. Both tracks have been made into beautifully poignant music videos by talented director Ferry Gouw.

The globetrotting Anjunabeats bosses are nearing the end of their extensive Group Therapy North American Tour with only a handful of shows left. After sell out shows in St. Louis, New York, Montreal, Los Angeles, Denver, Vancouver, Calgary, Sacramento, Seattle, Las Vegas, Scottsdale, San Diego and Newport Beach anyone attending the final 8 shows are advised purchase tickets in advance.

The success is the result of years of hard work for Above & Beyond, with a CV that includes performing to 1 million people on Barra Beach in Rio and soundtracking the launch of Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic SpaceshipTwo. Building up an unstoppable momentum in the past 12 months, the UK-based trio made their debut at the legendary Glastonbury festival last year and saw the 350th episode of their Trance Around The World radio show become the world’s top trending topic on social network Twitter in December 2010.
