Above & Beyond is a British trance music group that was formed in 2000 and consists of members Jono Grant, Tony McGuinness, and Paavo Siljamäki. Known for their uplifting dance floor sounds, stimulating vocals, and epic productions, Above & Beyond has quickly become the biggest electronic DJ and trance collective the UK has ever created. Grant and Siljamäki first met at University of Westminster and introduced their first single, “Volume One” under the alias, Anjunabeats. After their initial success, they were contacted by McGuinness who, at the time, was the Marketing Director and manager of the Warner Music Group. The three quickly connected and decided to work together, releasing a remix track called “Home” by Chakra. While brainstorming on what name to release the track under, they came across a motivational ad that read “Above and Beyond!” The name stuck with them ever since.

In 2004, Above & Beyond started their Trance Around The World (TATW) radio show reaching 30 million listeners in 35 countries. They are the only dance act in history to win the Essential Mix Of The Year twice, in 2004 as well as 2011. Above & Beyond released their first full-length album in 2006 (Tri-State), following up in 2008 (Sirens of the Sea), and their latest project in 2011 (Group Therapy) which includes the mega-hit “Sun & Moon.” From smaller Eastern European club performances to major festivals such as Creamfields, Godskitchen Gathering, and Coachella, the talented trio has captivated a great fan base. Their cinematic sounds and grandeur performances have brought thousands of A&B lovers singing back their lyrics at shows, walking down the wedding aisle to their songs, and even inking their bodies with the lyrics. Whether it is jumping on trampolines, bringing the audience on stage to press the play button, or even making an entrance to a show in a hot air balloon, Above & Beyond has focused their live performances on immersing and interacting with the crowd. Loyal fans enter each show expecting their euphoric trance melodies, astonishing production, elevating atmosphere, and of course, an inspiring reminder from Above & Beyond via LCD screen that “life is made of small moments like these.”
