With the sweetest of sounds coming from the speakers of the Ticket Arena office it would be mighty selfish of us to keep them to ourselves, so we thought we’d let you in on what our staff use to soundtrack a hard day’s work. Now a weekly feature with the intent of bringing your attention to wonderful new sounds every Tuesday, our Album Of The Week looks at releases from the best in the game, whether fresh new acts about to hit the big time or established artists reminding the world of their continued talent. Simply put, it’s just the best in music that we think you should hear.
The time has come, and three years since the drop of their last studio album, Above & Beyond’s highly anticipated ‘Common Ground’ release has finally arrived. A trio more mature than your average trance ensemble, their wealthy experience shows in their symphonic melodies and meaningful lyrics. Album opener ‘The Inconsistency Principle’ is an ambient affair, that flows with ease into the next track ‘My Own Hymn’, which features lyrics from frequent collaborator and ethereal vocalist Zoë Johnston. The thirteen track trance record flitters between ornamental, orchestral elements fit for a cinematic venture and electronic beeps, trills and pulses made for the dance floor. Above & Beyond are pioneers of the progressive trance game.
Above & Beyond take to Creamfields purpose built Steel Yard structure on Saturday 26th May.
