For several years straight - Top 5 DJ's of the World. There are DJs who can rock a party, a club, a festival. And there are acts that can write songs that will bring out the goose bumps in you. But there's only one group that can do both: Above & Beyond. Currently fifth in the DJ Magazine annual poll – the highest-placed Brits – in the last year alone, they have sound-tracked the unveiling of a new spaceship, performed an acoustic show in a hot air balloon, and entranced a crowd of 8,000 in Beirut with their first full live show. For the world's most famous trance trio, there are no limits. "There's so much going on," says Tony McGuinness. "We're trying to do so many things."
From remixing Madonna (2001), to winning Essential Mix of the Year (2004) or playing to one million people on the beach in Rio de Janeiro (New Year's Eve 2007), Above & Beyond's career has been a constant upward curve since the trio formed in 2000. Because Above & Beyond make music, pure and simple. That music happens to be electronic. And it connects. "We're a group," says Tony. "And we're trying to connect with people. When you see people singing along as passionately as they do, I guess you're getting it right." The key difference is this: Above & Beyond are DJs, producers – and musicians. "We like to think of ourselves as songwriters first," says Paavo Siljamaki, who with Jono Grant makes up the trio. "The most challenging thing is to write a song that really touches the listener." The original mix of 'Volume One', packaged with their 'Tease Dub Mix', received immediate attention in various dance clubs, and quickly gained support from Pete Tong, Paul Oakenfold, Judge Jules and Paul van Dyk.
The group's tracks are regularly played by DJs around the world, including Armin van Buuren, Gareth Emery, Ferry Corsten, ATB, and Kyau & Albert. They have remixed for the likes of, Madonna, Britney Spears, Radiohead, Dirty Vegas, Ferry Corsten, Armin van Buuren and Japan J-Pop favorite Ayumi.
By popular demand, Above & Beyond have performed in almost every country in the World! From 2002 the team began their DJ career in Tokyo in front of 8,000 clubbers… Thereafter, performed for reportedly a million clubbers in Brazil! Regulars in the United Kingdom, Ibiza & Barcelona – Spain, Poland, Belgium, France, Germany, Greece, Turkey, Romania, Finland, Hungary, Switzerland, Portugal, Italy, Russia, Ukraine, Japan, Taiwan, China, Korea, India, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Middle East, Argentina, Mexico, Brazil, Australia, Canada, across USA… and so the infinitely long list goes on. Often sold out in each city!
Most recently, Above & Beyond just performed at Electric Zoo in New York, sharing the Main Stage with fellow Top 5 DJ - David Guetta… and also Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas.
Last time Above & Beyond visited HK, they performed to a large crowd in the several thousands! Back by super strong demand, this time we've chosen a more convenient and top HK Club - Hyde, where only a limited 500+ tickets will be sold, giving a more up close and personal experience. Book early, before they get "sold out".
