If you want to see a show that truly goes above and beyond the traditional concert experience, then you should see Above & Beyond perform live. This electronic trio has electrified concertgoers with the group's unique take on trance music. The group recently dropped its fifth album, Flow State, which goes in a more ambient direction than previous releases.
The Flow State of Above & Beyond
The members of Above & Beyond, which started in 2000, are Jono Grant and Paavo Siljamäki, who met in college, as well as Tony McGuinness. They're based in London but have expanded their audience from beyond the UK. The two friends originally recorded under the name Anjunabeats, which also was the name of their record label. The names rotated, but a major moment happened when they got to know Tony McGuinness, who worked for Warner Music Group. They helped McGuinness with completing a remix of the song "Home" by Chakra. This helped the trio get major attention in their home country. In UK club circles, the trio's remix was a very hot track. The group members' skills in trance helped to make them in high demand for remixes. These included remixes of pop superstars, such as Britney Spears and Madonna. The group's original singles started to get a lot of attention as well, such as "No One On Earth" and "Satellite." Above & Beyond proved that it was capable of working on album-level tracks with the release of Tri-State. The group's celebrity got even bigger with more acclaim and shows played to huge crowds. Fans and critics also loved the trio's second album, Group Therapy, which came out in 2011. In addition to playing many festivals, the musicians also performed acoustic gigs. The group's third and fourth albums, We Are All We Need and Common Ground, also proved highly successful with the latter peaking at No. 3 on the US Billboard Top 200 albums chart. The trio has won awards from outlets such as A State of Trance and BBC Radio as well as the International Dance Music Awards. Above & Beyond has also been nominated for Grammys, Beatport Music Awards and DJ Awards.
