"Pink Skye" (Toby Hedges Remix) - Ronski Speed & Syntrobic ft. Renee Stahl

Toby Hedges has really set the bar high with this new remix of "Pink Skye." While listening to Above & Beyond's Group Therapy, I was mesmerized by this track and instantly had to search for the tracklist. "Pink Skye" features samples of the breathtaking and haunting vocals performed by Renee Stahl and the remix combines some old school Trance mixed with new age club beats to make one of the best Anjunabeats remixes in a while. This remix leaves me with uplifted spirits and was a much-needed stress reliever for me during finals - grab it on its release May 20th!

Free Download: ABGT 024 (Andrew Bayer Guest Mix)

After 24 episodes of Group Therapy radio, Above & Beyond's vision for the new show is finally starting to take shape. After leaving the beloved Trance Around the World back in the fall a lot of us fans wanted to know what the shift forwards would entail for the trio. Over the past few weeks the show has proven itself as a both an outlet for Trance and one where deep grooves and vibes blossom no matter their composition. This week's ABGT session brought us a wide variety of new music from Norin & Rad's new remix of "The Way You Are" to the ultimate troll of a flashback in the form of Arty and Mat Zo's "Rebound." Andrew Bayer upped the ante on his guest mix this afternoon bringing us 9 tracks off jazz-infused electronica that had the internet singing his praises.

"Get Wild Right Back" (Norin & Rad Mashup) - John Dahlback vs. Yuri Kane

This is one of the more exciting mashups I've heard in a while. Norin & Rad add some huge electro energy to Yuri Kane's "Right Back" infusing it with long samples of John Dahlback's "Get Wild" making for a truly energetic and flowing piece of music. The two have been pushing against the typical Anjunabeats sound but still staying far from the other "Trouse" producers, differentiating themselves by a lack of interest in the norms of a genre but rather in how fast and hard a track hits you. There are no standards in music and these guys are proving just that, even if they're upsetting some traditionalists on the way. Watch out for our interview with the two this week and be sure to check them out in the afternoon on Friday if you'll be at Ultra!

Find Your Sanctuary: Above & Beyond @ Roseland Ballroom

The three iconic Brits who've been at it for over a decade are hard to beat, and so were those subwoofers. But there's so much more than can be said of the night. For one thing, I have been to countless shows at the Times Square dance ballroom, and never was it this packed. The line to get in the show snaked out from the entrance wrapping its way around Broadway stretching all the way back up to the back of the venue on 53rd. 

The energy was high when our group finally got in the venue and situated about 10 people from the photo pit stage right. The stacked soundsystem together with the acoustics of Roseland really make a perfect venue for listening to something like Anjunabeats with its long punching basslines and uplifting synth chords. A&B broke the silence after Andrew Bayer left the decks with their classic set-opener "Small Moments Like These" then set off into the mix which was in fact one of the longest sets I've seen them play.

The thing about Above & Beyond is that their productions are so musically unique, yet they all adhere to a certain simplicity which compliments the catchiness of the tune, in turn leading to its success. This ends up making their shorter sets more of a concert than a mix, because no one wants to see A&B without hearing "Sun & Moon" or "Black Room Boy."
