Above & Beyond Announce Wynn Las Vegas Residency

One of the fondest memories I have in years of exploring dance music was my journey to Ibiza to see Tony & Paavo play for four hours straight for their weekly Cream night residency at the famed Club Amnesia. There's no better place to see A&B than at an extended nightclub set, where their greatest hits get the play deserved but there is plenty of time for surprises. While every DJ and his brother seem to have taken upon them a US residency for this summer, none have surprised me until now. Group Therapy is a way of life for Above & Beyond and their fans, and now it's about to get taken to a whole new production level previously unseen by their American followers. The three are set to kick off their 10-date residency at Las Vegas' glitziest resort with their inaugural XS appearance on May 17th and an afternoon show at Encore Beach Club the following day. You can now purchase presale tickets for both dates directly through us, but get them fast (links below)! And it gets better - you and a friend could win a trip to kick off the residency including airfare and board at Wynn. Enter here.

Set Download: Above & Beyond @ Anjunabeats Volume 10 Roseland NYC

Get yourself out of bed with an unforgettable live set! The rip goes starts from 30 minutes after the "Small Moments" prelude all the way to the encore. Above & Beyond's party to launch Anjunabeats Vol. 10 at Roseland may have been the most hyped show in NYC EDM history, and I heard nothing but "rave reviews." Big shoutout to Doug van Sant for MadeEvent.com for the awesome pics! Tracklist soon. Hope you all enjoy waking up to some Group Therapy.

Counting Down to Heaven on the East Coast with Above & Beyond

On February 16th, Valentine's Day weekend, the NYC Trance family will gather together for a night filled with a thing called love, as we join Above & Beyond for an unforgettable night at Roseland Ballroom. This Made Event will honor in celebration the massive release of Anjunabeats Volume 10, which we're sure will even top the last volume which was in itself one of the defining EDM compilations of our time. This year, I have traveled the world over for a little Group Therapy, from Philadelphia to Miami, Vegas to NYC, and of course nothing will ever compare to that one life changing night in Ibiza for Cream night at Amnesia. Paavo, Tony and Jono are my lifeblood, fueling my every inspiration with their transcedental love for music, and I'm sure they have the same effect on thousands of fans around the globe. I am beyond thrilled to share in another unforgettable experience with them in our home base, New York City. Sharing the stage with A&B includes the very talented Andrew Bayer, Norin & Rad and Beckwith, all proud members of the Anjunafamily. The brand new compilation album will give us unheard tracks from some of the most supreme names in Trance music, including Arty, Andrew Bayer, Jaytech, Norin & Rad, Kyau & Albert, and of course, the three British superstars themselves. Get ready for a sold out night with the masters of music, Above & Beyond, who will also be playing the night prior at SoundGarden Hall in Philadelphia. As we lose all sense of time and space, our hearts will rip wide open: we're on our way to heaven on the East Coast. And be on the lookout for the review of Vol. 10, it's going to be a smash record you won't want to miss!

"Play It Back" - Gabriel & Dresden ft. Betsie Larkin (Maor Levi Remix)

Today more than ever the world needs some Group Therapy! After the terrible tragedy of this morning it's time to reflect on what really matters in this world, and what we can do to ultimately change it. Every flaw in our world right now has its roots in hate, and there's only one thing we can do to change that: shower it with love. Above & Beyond know exactly what that's about, and that's precisely why they get on air every week to bring us some compassion despite having a hugely exhausting international touring circuit. Today's Record of the Week was massive as always. Featuring the vocals of Betsie Larkin, who we are hugely excited to see perform solo and alongside Ferry Corsten and Dash Berlin at POP NYE, Gabriel & Dresden's production is topped up to the max with Maor Levi's progressive edit. Turn up the love people!

Jumpstart Your New Year with POP NYE @ Oracle Arena Oakland

With all the festivities and events going on this New Year's Eve, you are basically guaranteed to have no problem finding a memorable (or not) way to start off your 2013. One of the parties we here at EDM Lounge are greatly anticipating is POP New Years Eve, a one-stage, all Trance event held in Oakland, California at the beautiful Oracle Arena. With big name Trance artists gracing the stage, from Andy Moor to W&W, this night will give you the chance to explore all different styles of the beloved genre. General Admission lower level tickets are already sold out, so you'll want to be sure to snag tickets soon - there is no better place to celebrate the starting of the "year of trance" as the clock strikes midnight than in Cali with the TranceFamily!

DYLOOT (5:00PM - 6:15PM)

1/3 of the group known as 'Deep Voices', this bay-area Trance DJ is renowned for his Progressive and melodic trance. Its only fitting to have one of the owners of Skills kick off the night into 2012. Starting off this single-genre, single-stage and single-vibe party, you are going to want to make sure you catch this event from start to finish. It will undoubtedly be a musical journey in itself.
 

W&W (6:15PM - 7:45PM)

Always known for bringing an immense amount of energy to their sets, W&W is an act you will want to make sure you experience. 2012 was an amazing year for these two, with a multitude of banging releases, including their most recent one, "Lift Off". Ranking this year's DJ Mag polls at #25, this superstar trance act will definitely make sure your feet don't stop moving. 

Above & Beyond (7:45PM - 9:30PM)

What better way to say adieu to 2012 with another mind-blowing performance by Above & Beyond? After just celebrating their 450th episode of TATW with the birth of Group Therapy in Bangalore you can bet this performance will be one for the books. With a new name, a new mission and most likely a new sound you know that A&B will connect to their audience in a way that no other act can. Dive into the night and find yourself surrounded by the uplifting arms of the TranceFamily. A sense of unity and an overwhelming feeling of love with the strangers around you will make you lose track of time while each track fades into the next. Playing at an all trance event will no doubt be the ultimate environment for Tony, Paavo & Jono - you would have to be out of your mind to miss this!

Andy Moor vs. Lange, featuring Bestie Larkin (9:30PM - 11:00PM)

2012 was also a very big year for seasoned producer Andy Moor, with his album release of Zero Point One. The album is a great example of euphoric and ambient trance. Collaborating with the likes of Above & Beyond and Ashley Wallbridge, this UK producer will be sure to put on a great show for us with Lange. The two have collaborated in the past and have similar tastes when it comes to Trance. These big name producers will be sure to make a versus set like no other seen before. This is certainly not Lange's first rodeo either. Being a prolific producer who has stood the test of time for many years in trance he continues today to wow trance admirers today. His eclectic and driving sets will be a perfect combination with Andy Moor's style. Buckle your seat belts, because Trance history is about to be made.

Dash Berlin (11:00PM - 12:30AM)

Dash Berlin is no stranger to music festivals. Gracing the stage from EDC to ASOT, Dash has made a real name for himself in the industry. Ranking higher than Above & Beyond in the DJ Mag Top 100s this year you can be sure Dash will have something great to bring to the table. Scheduled for the coveted midnight countdown timeslot, I'm anticipating a very uplifting, unifying set from him. Besides, who wouldn't love a countdown to the New Year with his uplifting tunes as the soundtrack?

Ferry Corsten featuring Bestie Larkin (12:30AM - 2AM)

As the grand finale of what's sure to be an unforgettable night, Ferry Corsten will be taking the stage. After releasing album WKND earlier this year, you can be sure he will bring an original performance like no other. This Dutch producer has been creating Trance for a long time, and his live sets are nothing but epic. This is the ideal way to begin any Trancehead's year! Also joining him that evening will be renowned vocalist Betsie Larkin, joining Ferry to end the night with something that will undoubtedly be spectacular. 

Grab your tickets while you still can!
