Armin van Buuren admits “…I can’t remember the last set that didn’t have an Above &Beyond production in it. They sound great on the radio and rock any dancefloor.”

Through a combination of silky production skills and uplifting DJ sets, Above & Beyond are fast becoming one of the strongest moving forces behind electronic music.Indeed, the September 2003 issue of Mixmag singles out Above &Beyond as one of the most prominent trance acts in the world today.
