Fridays… The day that we all crave so bad… The day where our stresses and problems are finally dwindling.. It’s a “Good Day” indeed, all thanks to a little Group Therapy to compliment the celebration of the end of the week. For the past 9 years, Jono Grant, Paavo Siljamaki, and Tony McGuinness have been gracing literally millions of people around the world during their “Trance Around The World” radio broadcasts. These three creative men come together to form Above & Beyond, our favorite Trance trio from the United Kingdom. In fact, just next week will be their official celebration of TATW 450, taking place at the Bangalore Palace, in India on November 10th, 2013, where they will be joined by MatZo, Andrew Bayer, and Norin & Rad. The other day, Above & Beyond also reached another new milestone in social media, officially reaching 1,000,000 fans on Facebook.
Undoubtedly some of the biggest pioneers in trance, being at one of their performances proves that the night is going to be one of your most emotional journeys of your year. It’s incredibly satisfying to breathe in the moment of air, filled with love when you see literally thousands of fans around you singing along with Above & Beyond. There is nothing more beautiful then the euphoria that you experience at one of their performances. Unfortunately if you haven’t experienced one of these already, you may have missed your chance permanently, as today they have announced breaking news. After playing many of the old classic tracks that have shaped the way Trance evolved, Above & Beyond closed with the Analogue Haven remix of the perfect song, “Breaking Ties” by OceanLab. Little did we know, 2 minutes later the title of their last track had a subliminal meaning behind it as they announced “& finally some news just in.. Trance Around the World 450 will be the last ever Trance Around the World.. Bye for now”.
Ending the last 10 seconds of TATW449 with that powerful statement, there are tons of questions up in the air for the millions of fans around the world. “Why is Trance Around The World 450 the last?” “Will Above & Beyond disband and go separate ways?” These are all questions that will answer themselves with the coming of time, so sit tight and keep a lookout for updated news on the status of Above & Beyond.
“”You & I. Breaking Ties” Thank you for the 9 years of Trance Around The World love
#TATW” -Above & Beyond
#trancefamily, I’m truly at a loss for words. Although they haven’t stuck as much to their Trance roots as they did when they first started, change is inevitable in the industry, & it’s something we’re all going to have to live with…
Please remember the path of which Above & Beyond took to get here, instead of where they stand now.
Long live ‘Trance Around The World’.
