After an amazing time at my first Group Therapy show almost a year ago, I was thrilled to hear that Above & Beyond would be back in Chicago at the Congress Theater, this time with special guests Cosmic Gate and Mat Zo in tow. React Presents offered an epic lineup that surely provided musical therapy to all via a combination of uplifting basslines and melodic vocals that spread euphoric emotions throughout the crowd.
Anjunabeats star Mat Zo came out in full force with his rework of Radiohead’s Codex and Justice mashup We Are Mozart’s Friends. However, the track everyone was most excited for him to drop was definitely his newest single The Sky with Linnea Schossow. Her angelic vocals coupled with a brilliant climax are making this one of the hottest new releases on Beatport. Next up was Above & Beyond, who opened with all of their quintessential Group Therapy hits and even treated one lucky fan to press play on the CDJ for the climax of Sun & Moon. Their set also laid down Maor Levi’s upbeat version of Swoon by the Chemical Brothers and Eric Prydz’s massive remix of Personal Jesus by Depeche Mode. Closing the night was Cosmic Gate, a duo who holds a special place in their hearts for Chicago since so many fans sing along when they perform there. See our our photo album here for pics.
This upcoming weekend, Above & Beyond will be performing at The Shrine in LA for three consecutive nights (17th, 18th & 19th). If you are attending any of these nights, be sure to film your own unique Group Therapy experience for a chance to win a spot on the next episode of A&B TV (See Video Below)!
