I’ve been personally raving (no pun intended) about the Above & Beyond acoustic documentary since Thump aired it on YouTube last week. The 4 shows at Porchester Hall in London (as well as the 2 here in Los Angeles not in the film) were a testament to the musicianship of the longstanding trio, and their passion for creating such a complex performance is incredibly admirable.
As Above & Beyond Acoustic (the accompanying studio album) has been released today, we’ve been given a massive bundle of Above & Beyond merchandise to give away to one lucky person, including the DVD documentary, album, T-shirts, and all sorts of miscellaneous treats.
Enter to win this AMAZING prize below, and have a look at the goosebump-inducing full documentary via Thump as well! Continue Reading
These videos of Above & Beyond‘s live acoustic performance from their Porchester Hall performance keep surfacing and I keep melting. Witness the supreme musicianship from the trio and their talented orchestra in this video for “Sun & Moon.”
There is no question about it, Pierce Fulton has been creating quite the buzz in the Progressive House community lately. Ever since his single, For Me, dropped and was featured on Above & Beyond’s Trance Around The World, Fulton has been unstoppable. I recently caught up with Pierce, and not only was he kind enough to give GDD™ an interview, but he also recorded an EXCLUSIVE mix just for all of our loyal readers.
Read on after the jump for our chat and mix! Continue Reading

I am so glad that I am no longer in college because the commencement of my summer is now completely dependent on the weather. With that said, it is a lovely 87ºF today in sunny, sweaty Los Angeles, which means it is time to put away the pea coats and bring on the boardies + bikinis. The month of April is now over, and in Las Vegas, pools have opened and day parties are in full swing. If you recall earlier this year, a few of us were lucky enough to head out to the brand new Marquee nightclub in the Cosmopolitan Hotel to do a review of the production and main resident Roger Sanchez. Well, after seeing what they had to offer in January, both aesthetically and musically, the only thing on our minds was splashing around in that pool to some big tunes this summer.
Now, with Memorial Day creeping around the corner with a PBR tall boy in one hand and an American flag bikini in the other, Marquee will be presenting one of the finest weekend nightclub and dayclub lineups on or off the strip. Artists on hand will include Fatboy Slim, Chuckie, Roger Sanchez, Above & Beyond, Armin van Buuren, ATB, Cedric Gervais, Laidback Luke, Robbie Rivera, and more.
GDD™ will be giving away 2 passes for all Marquee Dayclub and Nightclub ‘United’ events for THE ENTIRE WEEKEND (4 days!). After testing the waters on our Facebook earlier today, it’s clear that many of you will be making the sinful trip out to the desert for the weekend, but for others, this could just be your reason to go. See below for entry details…
