Although we haven’t covered much of it on DoAndroidsDance yet, that doesn’t mean we don’t have an affinity for the pounding beats, emotive themes, and uplfting chords of trance. UK trio Above & Beyond is truly dominating right now with their own brand of trance. Their most recent album Group Therapy was released in June of 2011, and the album has created a global movement that still rages on today. Beyond their own solo productions, the trio also heads up Anjunabeats, one of the most significant labels in modern EDM. As the home of some of the world’s best and brightest in trance and progressive house, you know any compilation will be worth every penny.
Anjunabeats Volume 10 will feature numerous unreleased cuts, special mixes, and recently released tracks from acts like Arty, Andrew Bayer, Maor Levi, Audien, Norin & Rad, Jaytech, and of course the A&B boys themselves. Trance, progressive house, and the big room blend will all find their place.
Ahead of the album’s March 4 release date, Rolling Stone premiered a mini-mix of the album. In speaking on the album, Above & Beyond member and Anjunabeats founder Tony McGuiness said, “For our landmark 10th edition, we reached out far and wide across our label family and asked our favourite producers to create something extra special for the compilation. From Sydney to Hawaii, Moscow to Miami, many of the compilation’s 30 unique tracks from the likes of Arty, Norin & Rad and Andrew Bayer have been the soundtrack to our DJ shows across the world.”
A&B and many of the acts on the mix, will also be in Miami for the Ultra Music Festival. Now it might not be their unique personal show (which is a must for any music diehard), but there’s no doubt that they should be at the top of your list. If you haven’t grabbed your tickets yet, get on that now.
