Biography

One of the most successful trance acts of the 2000s and 2010s, Above & Beyond are a British trio known for their production and remix work, as well as their DJ performances and record label. Founded in 2000 in London, England, the trio is comprised of Jono Grant, Tony McGuinness, and Paavo Siljamäki. Although they garnered early acclaim for a high-profile remix of a Madonna single, Above & Beyond experienced a steady ascent as producers and as a live act. They eventually sold out large venues in their native U.K. and in the U.S. Among music buyers, they broke into the mainstream in 2015 with their fourth studio album. Prior to founding Above & Beyond, Grant and Siljamäki met at the University of Westminster and founded the Anjunabeats label. Shortly afterward, they met McGuinness, teamed up as Above & Beyond, and did a remix for Chakra's "Home." One remix led to another, culminating in 2001 with an attention-getting remix of Madonna's "What It Feels Like for a Girl." Other early Above & Beyond remixes of note included Aurora's "Ordinary World," Fragma's "Everytime You Need Me," and Perpetuous Dreamer's "The Sound of Goodbye." As a DJ act, Above & Beyond made their debut in 2002 and steadily worked their way up into the Top Ten of the much-touted DJ Mag Top 100 poll.--more-- From a production standpoint, Above & Beyond made their debut in 2002 with the single "Far from in Love," a vocal trance anthem featuring Kate Cameron. Around this same time, Grant, McGuinness, and Siljamäki presented the first volume of their Anjunabeats mix-album series and formed the group OceanLab, their most prominent alias and splinter project (among many others, including Anjunabeats, Tranquility Base, Dirt Devils, Free State, Rollerball, Tongue of God, and Zed-X). They made their production debut under that name in 2001 with "Clear Blue Water" and continued releasing new material as such throughout the decade, most notably the smash hit "Satellite" in 2004. Above & Beyond's full-length album debut came in 2006 with Tri-State. The trio continued to release supplemental singles and issued a second album, Group Therapy, in 2011, and followed it with a set of stripped-down re-recordings titled Acoustic. We Are All We Need, released in 2015, was their most successful set to that point. Their fourth studio album, heavily invested in songcraft with contributions from the likes of Zoe Johnston and Alex Vargas, debuted at number 12 in the U.K. In the U.S., it topped Billboard's dance chart and cracked the Top 40 of the all-genre Billboard 200. ~ Jason Birchmeier
