Trance-trip trio Above & Beyond has a name that says it best. They are an ocean away from most other acts in electronic dance music, and hands down the biggest thing in trance. The group has gone from innovative scene-shakers to globe-trotting DJ squad, experiencing the kind of fame that is usually lavished on bona fide super stars. But maybe that’s what they are—which is why they are one of the biggest acts to hit Buffalo and a not-to-be-missed show for anyone interested in EDM or anyone who wants a good night out on the dance floor. Although the three are award winning remixers, they are songwriters first and foremost, and the spirit of making original music applies to all they do—even when they’re re-mixing Madonna. Above & Beyond has rocked audiences from exclusive private clubs in New York and L.A. to the beaches of Goa and Rio de Janiero, proving they can get a crowd of any size moving in unison. A & B comes through Buffalo on Friday (March 19), fresh from a recording session in Ibiza, Spain, where the club scene in one of the hottest in the world. So let’s be sure to show them a good time.
