Above and Beyond

5 years ago

These guys have produced so many great songs that they are truly one of my all time favorites. What do you guys think of them?

Above and Beyond is a 3-piece trance music group that has always taken initiative and pushed the envelope to achieve what they wanted over the course their musical career.

They formed in 1999, and from the very beginning they started their own label, Anjunabeats, so that they could release their material on their own without any restraints. Things seemed to click right off the bat and they were immediately recognized by the likes of Paul Okenfold, Judge Jules and Paul van Dyk. Their remix of Chakra`s "Home" was such a huge success that they reached #1 on the Billboard dance charts in 2000.

From then on they didn`t look back doing remixes for Madonna, Britney Spears, Dido and many others.

It was in 2002, that they finally decided that they needed to start DJing in order to get their music out to the masses and so they had their first live performance in Tokyo alongside with Ferry Corsten and Tiesto in front of 8000 clubbers.

After that night, they had gotten the DJ bug and went full speed ahead from there starting their ongoing weekly radio show titled "Trance Around the World" in 2004, which now has an audience of roughly 30 million listeners across 35 countries.

The popularity of their DJ sets had grown so quickly that shortly after that they found themselves on the DJ Mag Top 100 Chart at #39 in 2004, and they have since crawled their way up into the top 10 for the past 4 straight years.

While their career may be short, they have certainly left a lasting impact on clubbers around the world and they are continually sought after to perform at major festivals and events across the globe.
