Forever one of, if not the most unique and well-known band to ever grace dance music with its presence, Above & Beyond have continued to push their sound upward and outward into the farthest reaching corners of the industry, both through their own releases and through those of artists like Arty and Mat Zo on their world-renowned Anjunabeats imprint. Now, Above & Beyond have greeted 2014 in their own special way, celebrating the label's 300th release with their latest single, 'Hello.'
Today at 4pm EST/1pm PST, Vice's THUMP channel will premiere the full length concert film of Above & Beyond's acclaimed acoustic project. Following the release, Above & Beyond will be on Google Hangout at 5:30pm EST/2:30pm PST.
This feature-length concert film exposes the great backstories and performances from Above & Beyond's acoustic shows at London's Porchester Hall last summer. At these shows, the guys Jono, Tony and Paavo, perfromed their greatest hits as part of an impressive 15 piece band. Following the success from their London shows, the guys ended up recording an acoustic studio album and brought over these performances to LA's Greek Theater, which was decribed by Billboard magazine as, "one of the finest and more memorable shows in EDM history."

2013 is coming to a near finish, which means it's time to reflect on the year's most exciting Artists and DJs. The rise of EDM is no secret and not to be overrated. With an abundance of new talent, artists recreating their sound, and stellar festival sets that stood out from the rest, the EDM scene looks like it's constantly generating exciting buzz all throughout the year. Here's our pick of the Top 20 DJs who's made a great impression in the electronic music scene:
It's no secret that Robbert van de Corput, better recognized as, Hardwell, was crowned DJ Mag's #1 DJ. In 2011, he entered the Top 100 list at #24, quickly rising the ranks to #1 in a matter of only two years. There's a reason why he's been voted the top DJ, just look at the views on all his major festival sets on Youtube. His Tomorrowland set garnered 16+ million views while his Ultra set is at 17+ million views. The numbers certainly speak for themselves. At only 25 years old, there's no slowing down this festival tycoon anytime soon!
What we would have done to be able to witness Above & Beyond’s Acoustic USA performance at Greek Theater this past weekend. Such is life, especially when you’re off living on the East Coast. But from what we can tell by the cell phone videos we were sent during their show, this was indeed a monumental experience that no DJ set could ever offer. Even so, these poor-quality iPhone clips were so powerful that they brought tears to our eyes as we had instantly become part of “Sun & Moon,” a timeless masterpiece. Before last weekend, nothing felt so right or so pure.
As the visuals cast a dark shadow around Tony and Paavo, their iconic trance style began to emanate from the speakers and through the multi-leveled crowd. The catalyst track, Vic Sky's "Time For Love," was first to break the silence. And surely, the love was present.
Eager to embark on their night's anticipated musical journey, fans of the UK group, or band as they often like to refer themselves, began to dance as the atmosphere livened up to heights unseen thus far in the night. As the duo began to transition out of the intro, songs like Amoda' s "Fuzztone" and Paul & Luke's "Fable 2008" began to drive the tempo and pave the way for more upbeat tracks like "Audien" by Wayfarer and "Easy" by Mat Zo and Porter Robinson, both of which were released on Anjunabeats.
