ABOVE & BEYOND ANNOUNCE U.S. TOUR DATES

Above & Beyond- for the Grateful Web

This February, ABOVE & BEYOND—who are Jono Grant, Tony McGuinness and Paavo Slijamaki—will return to the U.S. for a club tour in support of their compilation album Anjunadeep:01.  Set for release via ULTRA Records on February 16, the double-disc set encompasses a variety of tracks from their respected Anjunadeep imprint.

On this tour, where they will be joined by support act Jaytech,  ABOVE & BEYOND will showcase the Anjunadeep sound in the early part of their sets and before progressing to the quality melodic trance sound for which they are best known.  In a short space of time, Anjunadeep has grown from being a promising sibling to the Anjunabeats label, to a dynamic and influential imprint in its own right, pioneering a sound somewhere between house and trance.  The tour kicks off February 12 in Atlanta and will take the trio throughout many key markets in the U.S. including Houston, Denver, New York, Washington D.C. and Las Vegas, as well as into Canada with stops in Toronto, Calgary and Edmonton.

Winning fans such as James Zabiela, Desyn Masiello, Eric Prydz and Laurent Garnier along the way, Anjunadeep received a nomination for "Best Record Label" at DJ Magazine's Best of British Awards 2008. ABOVE & BEYOND's Tony McGuinness said: "The road between house and trance used to be a dusty, barren path, visited by only the truly brave, but in the last few years it has become an exciting, bustling place with constant traffic going both ways. Anjunadeep is that lovely, shiny building on the left with all the people looking in the window."

The label's debut compilation features Anjunadeep stalwarts Jaytech, Michael Cassette (aka Komytea), Interplay, Joonas Hahmo and recent high profile addition 16 Bit Lolitas.  They are joined by newer faces like Colombia's Liluca, Russia's Proff and Canadian Paul Keeley, as ABOVE & BEYOND conjure up two CD's of spirited melodic house music. A special treat comes in the form of ABOVE & BEYOND's own remix of Radiohead's "Reckoner" officially licensed via XL Recordings for the physical format only.
