Above & Beyond
Above & Beyond
Over their four critically acclaimed studio albums, along with their acoustic project, Above & Beyond (aka Jono Grant, Tony McGuinness and Paavo Siljamäki) have continually been celebrated for placing real musicianship and songwriting at the heart of what they do. While their famed club mixes have resonated with the dance generation, the songs behind them have touched fans of all ages across the globe. As influenced as much by Jeff Buckley or Bon Iver as they are by their deep love of electronic music, Above & Beyond’s songs and lyrics have been sung back to them at the world’s biggest stadiums and stages – from The Gorge Amphitheater to Wembley Arena, from Madison Square Garden and the LA Forum to their famed one million people gig at Barra Beach in Rio de Janeiro in 2007.

In January 2018, Above & Beyond will deliver their new album ‘Common Ground’, featuring guest collaborators Zoë Johnston, Justine Suissa and the returning Richard Bedford - the voice of festival anthem ‘Sun & Moon’. Jono, Tony and Paavo also head up two record labels - Anjunabeats and Anjunadeep. ‘Common Ground’ will be the trio’s first self-released album in the United States and Canada and, to ensure all fans can get their hands on a physical copy, each ticket purchased for Above & Beyond’s 2018 North American Album tour includes a CD. The tour takes in some of North America’s most sought-after venues including the Los Angeles Convention Center and Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.
Luttrell
Since his frst release on Anjunadeep in Fall of 2016, Luttrell’s unique brand of melodic techno has seen him gain heavy support from BBC Radio 1 and notch up over 2 million streams on Spotify. Annie Mac, Pete Tong, and Kolsch have all championed his productions, inspired by everything from the sunsets of his hometown of San Francisco, to DJing at Burning Man. His early musical infuences include Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana, and The Prodigy, but a semester spent studying in Berlin introduced him to techno.

Now a mainstay of the Anjunadeep touring family, Luttrell has played major venues on both sides of the Atlantic, from Exchange in LA to London’s Phonox. His diverse skills as a remixer have seen him rework tracks from Blossoms, Lane 8 & Kidnap Kid, Way Out West, and Tall Heights.

His latest release, “Contact”, was premiered at ABGT250 at the Gorge in Seattle, and it has garnered early support from Pete Tong and Annie Mac... It looks set to solidify his position as one of the rising stars of the techno scene.
