Above and Beyond, England’s sensational trance artists are bringing their signature sounds to the Gorge Amphitheatre!
Above and Beyond was formed in London (England) in 2000 and is a trio consisting of Jono Grant, Tony McGuinness, and Paavo Siljamäki. Their musical style is best described as a blend of trance (a genre of electronic dance music developed during the 1990s in Germany and characterized by a tempo lying between 125 and 150 beats per minute, repeating melodic phrases, and a musical form that distinctly builds tension and elements throughout a track often culminating in 1 to 2 ‘peaks’ or ‘drops’), vocal trance (a subgenre of trance music that focuses on vocals and melodies), progressive trance (a sub genre of trance - contaiing elements of house, techno, and ambient genres - characterized by long builds, more subtle breakdowns, and lack of high pitched blaring synths that trance is known for), and progressive house. They’ve had a stellar career with 5 studio albums, 2 compilation albums, and 55 singles. They’ve received many accolades including 3 A State of Trance Awards (for Tune of the Year), an 2 International Dance Music Award (for Best Underground Dance Track), and 2 BBC Radio Awards (for Essential Mix of the Year). They’ve also been nominated for a Grammy Award (for Best Dance Recording).
