“Group Therapy” was named the biggest artist album of the year by Mixmag, touting Billboard hits like “Sun & Moon” and “Thing Called Love” - as well as their forthcoming single "Love Is Not Enough." The Group Therapy show will center around the complexly layered and utterly divine album, with a story-telling set-list following the album’s tumultuous tales of life, love and death. “Group Therapy” has managed to combine electronica, trance 2.0, traditional house and even modern-progressive beats into one incredibly deep rising album.
The concert is being hailed for its concert-theatre production, complete with stirring visuals and crisply tuned sound systems that have made dance-floors world-wide shake at Above & Beyond’s previous appearances.
While Above & Beyond’s moving set may be the pinnacle of Group Therapy, it surely isn’t the only act to look forward to - Above & Beyond have invited friends off of their Anjunabeats label to participate in the therapy session. The stellar quartet of openers is comprised of Mat Zo, Arty, Boom Jinx and Andrew Bayer.
Mat Zo’s music raises the standards for innovation in this constantly-trying industry. Zo makes producing such intricate flowing beats seem effortless, earning him the love and respect of music-lovers across genres. He holds the unique title of the only DJ to top the Beatport trance and drum & bass charts simultaneously, and this is before his first album has even debut. The 21-year-old holds much potential, and his Group Therapy performance will undoubtedly show off his wide-ranging skills.
Another addition to this already-impressive lineup is Boom Jinx. The Norwegian producer seems to be on super-speed mode with his recent work, releasing countless hits like massive vocal trance anthem "Phoenix From The Flames" to deep progressive gem "Pieces Of The Puzzle." With his eclectic taste in music and gifted ear for the perfect tunes, Boom Jinx is a crowd-pleasing DJ master.
Added on last minute to the roster but certainly not least is Andrew Bayer. Another innovator in the electronic music game, Bayer has conquered multiple sects including glitch-hop, melodic techno and underground electronica. His experimental combinations seem to be coming together perfectly, and this mad scientist can be counted on for one roller coaster ride of a show.
