While the formidable trance trio Above & Beyond has yet to embark on their forthcoming “Common Ground” tour in honor of their upcoming album of the same name — to be released in January —the group’s already announced an incredibly exciting denouement of the tour.

Fans of the ensemble can expect a cinematic deliverance from the three, now set to conclude in Miami at the famed RC Cola Plant during Miami Music Week on March 22, 2018 alongside Seven Lions.

Abandoned in the early ’90s, the RC Cola Plant has since become a haven for street and graffiti artists alike. Above & Beyond’s takeover of the venue will follow-up their two previous sold-out jaunts there in previous years.

The “Common Ground” tour is poised to be Above & Beyond’s biggest tour to date, and includes massive headline slots at The Hollywood Bowl, Madison Square Garden, Sydney Opera House, Royal Albert Hall, Alexandra Palace, London, Amsterdam’s Ziggo Dome, The O2 Arena, Red Rocks and The Gorge Amphitheater, and many more.

Attendees are sure to see the new, expectedly evocative album play out before their eyes. Currently, three singles are available for listening off the album including, “Northern Soul,” “Tightrope,” and “My Own Hmyn.”

Rain Man & MAX – Do You Still Feel? (Original Mix)

This post was originally published on this site

Kris Trindl, known to many as Rain Man, has been mostly quiet on the music front for the first half of 2017. Aside from releasing a remix of Steve Aoki and Louis Tomlinson‘s “Just Hold On,” the Dim Mak-signed producer has been working on new music, like his latest single with MAX, “Do You Still Feel?”

“Do You Still Feel?” shows a lighter side of the artist’s production abilities. The track leans into the pop side of electronic music, with catchy vocals from MAX and flawless production from Rain Man.

The former Krewella front man had a successful 2016, with his track “Bring Back The Summer” racking up more than 3 million plays to date on SoundCloud. The track had a light summer feel to it, as “Do You Still Feel?” does. This latest release, having a similar feel, should be a hit for the duo, too.

“I’m excited to finally share ‘Do You Still Feel’ with the world,” Trindl told Billboard. “I first started the beat with an acoustic guitar and my laptop in an Airbnb during Miami Music Week 2016. The track reminds me of all of the incredible moments I’ve had over the last year touring, performing, and creating music with so many amazing people.”
