The Electronica Life
Issue #2 – 05.24.11

“If a composer could say what
he had to say in words he would
not bother trying to say it in music”
– Gustav Mahler

And, that’s exactly what
this issue is all about! Well that and
some awesome news…

A couple weeks ago, we had two of
the founders of Electronica Life go to
one of the Enhanced Concert series
thrown by Insomniac (you know the
ones who throw that little party called
EDC). When it was all said and done,
they were truly blown away by the
performance.

Now, many of us have heard of this
group and have even seen them live…
but today you’re going to experience them
through our ears… well the ears of a couple
of our founders.

So without further ado, here’s a party review
from George van Dyk and Myles Pacheco…

On May 13th 2011 at the Hollywood Palladium
our lives changed. We experienced a
phenomenal group of DJ’S that really take their
performance “above and beyond” most other
DJ’s that we have ever seen. This group had
two sold out shows during the weekend of the
13th in Los Angeles and were one of the biggest
acts to catch in L.A. since their last performance
in December of 2010 (which was arguably their
biggest performance of their career).

Was it their best performance to date? You
can be the judge by checking out a video here:

If you have not figured out who we are talking
about well let us tell you this: this group has
been appreciated for their uplifting trance,
highly acclaimed singles, and their famous
record label “Anjunabeats”.

Of course we’re talking about…
ABOVE & BEYOND.

On the 13th we went to go see A&B on their
new highly anticipated “Group Therapy” tour.
Their new album is coming out in June which
you can pre order from amazon here:

On that very special night we got to see
four acts & meet with some new people.
Once we entered the Palladium we caught
the last thirty minutes of DAVI’s performance,
then once he was done Jaytech took over and
totally rocked the stage until Above & Beyond
was ready. Then after he was done the whole
place went black & everyone had their cameras
ready for Above & Beyond to come out. While
everyone was waiting, the crowd was clapping
and chanting “A&B”… check the video here:

Then after all the chanting Above & Beyond
had a L.E.D. display hanging from them to
type messages to the crowd and before they
started they told everyone to read their messages
out loud then after they came out started their
two hour & a half performance.

Immediately as soon as they started with their
intro the crowd was energized and pleased to
see Above & Beyond on stage. The performance
Above & Beyond gave was from their upcoming
album that is due in June as well as other brand
new songs from different artists.

Out of the whole performance there were
three songs that brought the crowd together
and got everyone to sing. The first one was their
recent single they just remixed called
“Thing Called Love” feat. Richard Bedford.
Once this track came on everyone in the building
as well as Above & Beyond were feeling the amazing
vibe from the crowd and were singing the song together.

Then after, in the middle of their performance,
they played their popular single “Sun & Moon”,
which had the same effect as when “Thing Called Love”
came on, but everyone in the building knew the lyrics
to “Sun & Moon” and you could hear everyone singing!

Check out “Sun & Moon” here:

In that moment you felt an amazing vibe with
the people and Above & Beyond put up on
their display: This is group therapy at work.

At the end of their performance they ended the
show with a really inspiring outro and thanked
the crowd for coming to the show. Then after, the
lights fade out, the crowd is still touched with the
performance Above & Beyond gave and were
clapping and cheering “one more song!”

A few minutes pass and Above & Beyond came
back out and played an encore with “On a Good Day”
Good day video here: http://youtu.be/HUvL1M9QJuE

If you like that song like we do (especially the version
in the video) you can get it here: http://amzn.to/anbgoodday

Then right after the song was over the crowd
gave applause for Above & Beyond and their
performance. Then after Mat Zo came on and
finished the concert off. By far, the best act of the
night was Above & Beyond. Their performance was
just more than music! When they perform they show a
different side of music where it gets the crowd more
than physically involved (as in dancing). They bring
a whole different type of energy that effects you
spiritually, emotional, and mentally. This group of
DJ’S are really a special thing and if you ever get
the opportunity to go see them live you better
TAKE FULL ADVANTAGE OF IT BECAUSE THEIR
PERFORMANCE IS A LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCE!

Here’s a couple shows they have for the rest of the year:
