Above & Beyond is a British trance music band formed in 2000 by Jono Grant, Tony McGuinness, and Paavo Siljamäki. The trio is popular on the trance music scene for their uplifting trance productions and for their collaborations with several vocal soloists. They hold London's electronic dance music stations Anjunabeats and Anjunadeep, and also host a weekly radio show: Group Therapy Radio. The group's songs are used by well-known DJs: Tiësto, Armin van Buuren, Ferry Corsten, ATB, Judge Jules, and Paul van Dyk. The Trio is constantly present in "DJ Magazine's Top 100 DJs Poll", ranking #6 in 2007, #4 in 2008 & 2009, #5 in 2010 2011, and most recently on #29 in 2015.

Important productions

Above & Beyond's single "No One On Earth" was voted the song of 2004 in the A State Of Trance radio show of the Dutch DJ in Armin van Buuren. At the beginning of 2006, the band released their debut album, "Tri-State". British magazine DJ Magazine has given the 5-star album, saying it's "A blend of elegant electronic rhythms, lush movie textures, and an old-fashioned writing style." Another successful single on the album is "Air for Life" (with Andy Moor), who won the Best Underground Dance Track Award in 2006 at the Miami Winter Music Conference. "Alone Tonight" (with Richard Bedford) was nominated for the best progressive house/trance song at the 22nd International Dance Music Awards, which took place in Miami WMC in 2007.

Career

In 2002, the band began their DJ career in Tokyo, in front of 8,000 clubbers, at a concert where they mixed Ferry Corsten and Tiësto. After a slow start of their career, they became the most sought-after DJs at trance festivals and clubs around the world, including Rockness, Glastonbury and Creamfields and Godskitchen Global Gathering in the UK, and Amnesia from Ibiza, Spain. In addition, on December 31, 2007, Above & Beyond unofficially hosted the biggest DJ concert ever made in Bara Beach, Rio de Janeiro, where they mixed for about a million people.
