Legendary trance trio Above & Beyond have announced that the 450th episode of their much-acclaimed radio show Trance Around The World will be the series’ last. The final episode will be a 6-hour streamed event from Bangalore, India featuring Andrew Bayer, Mat Zo, Norin & Rad, and Jody Wisternoff. The photo above with Jono, Tony and Pavo leaping into the sea suggests that they may be taking a break to focus on a new Oceanlab album with Justine Suissa.
Check out the preview video below for the India event and hear an amazing acoustic rendition of Sun & Moon from Indian group Lagori. Finally, head over to their Facebook page for a free download of their track Tokyo, a gift to their fans for hitting 1 million “likes” on Facebook.
UPDATE: Above & Beyond’s radio show is being renamed Group Therapy from Saturday, November 10 onward–a sign of the unstoppable momentum of the Group Therapy phenomenon. The boys of A&B stated, “Group Therapy describes the relationship between us, our music and our audience and the magic that happens when they interact. Our radio show is our biggest weekly interaction with our fans…. It is global Group Therapy.” The switchover to Group Therapy will be triggered when Above & Beyond take to the stage during their 450th TATW broadcast, which is coming from Jayamahal Palace in Bangalore, India on November 10. From Friday November 16, the Group Therapy radio show will occupy Above & Beyond’s regular weekly radio slot of 7pm – 9pm BST (2pm – 4pm EST) and will keep the same format as their current TATW show.
