IN THE HOUSE
Weekend Pick: Above and Beyond at Echostage

If you’re feeling a little overwhelmed or rundown, why not give therapy a try? Therapy for the soul, that is…music!

Embracing the therapeutic potential of music, English trance trio Above and Beyond has created a movement in the EDM world. Despite being formed way back in 2000, they still ranked as number 17 on DJ Magazine’s list of Top 100 DJs of 2013. They started out as remix artists, mixing hits by artists like Madonna, Britney Spears, and others, but their demand and popularity was off the charts, and they played at numerous festivals and concerts before releasing their debut album in 2006.

Pow Wow with Oliver Twizt

Following his bumpin’ performance for Club GLOW at Ultrabar, up-and-coming artist, Oliver Twizt, aka Joel, graciously welcomed us into his Twizted life, music, career, and future endeavors. This past Thursday, he played alongside Sandro Silva for the second to last stop of their Mixmash Records fall tour. For those of you who don’t know too much about him, not to worry, for you are all invited to story time!

Once upon a time, in the far away kingdom of the Netherlands, there lived a boy named Joel who grew up to be the man we know today, Oliver Twizt. We were inclined to know how he became Mr. Twizt, so we charmed him into giving us every last detail. Click here to see our review of Sandro and Oliver's set!
