Simplicity is key with Above & Beyond‘s naming convention for their newest single, “Red Rocks.” The track is named after the legendary Colorado outdoor amphitheater, the place where they first dropped the song.
“Red Rocks” has a pulsing rhythm and dynamic synthesized vocal accents, adding variation to their infamous trance sound. The track has a grooving bent to it that is perfect the club and equally at home in larger venues — like its namesake. The trio released both the original and extended version of the release, which is out now on Anjunabeats.
Above & Beyond have just wrapped up their North American ‘Common Ground’ tour celebrating their latest album of the same name.

Above & Beyond (aka Jono Grant, Tony McGuinness and Paavo Siljamäki) announced earlier this week their plans to celebrate the 300th episode of their cult radio show, Group Therapy, with a live broadcast from one of the world’s truly iconic cities: Hong Kong.

After a series of memorable inclusions in both Above & Beyond and Oliver Smith‘s own DJ sets, Smith has finally released his progressive trance track, “Lovingly,” with his longtime label, Anjunabeats. A prolific and strategic remixer with official remixes for Mat Zo, Arty, and Above & Beyond themselves, Smith is also the only artist (other than A&B themselves) to appear on every Anjunabeats volume compilation to date.
“Lovingly” follows a long record of Smith’s delve into solely instrumental tracks — as his very first solo vocal production, featuring British songstress, Amy J Pryce. Pryce’s vocals flood the robust dance track with a full-bodied tenderness, magnifying the already starry-eyed progressive trance vigor.
Living up to its promise to “expect the unexpected” in 2018, UMF capped off a lofty Miami Music Week with a number of attention-grabbing acts from dance music’s top tastemakers, including David Guetta, Kaskade, Eric Prydz, and Above & Beyond, along with an illustrious cast of newcomers in REZZ, Jauz, and Virtual Self. The most exalted act of the weekend came in the form of a highly anticipated reunion from Swedish House Mafia, who filled the surprise guest slot to close out the festival. Marshmello made his main stage debut and premiered his newest collaboration with Lil Uzi Vert, The Chainsmokers put the naysayers to bed with their high-energy performance, which included four unreleased tracks and a flaming drum solo, and Sir Carl Cox delivered a high-powered spectacle in his Resistance Megastructure.
Other notable moments came care of DJ Snake, who brought out Tchami, Malaa, and Mercer to debut their new collaboration, “Let’s Get Ill;” Axwell Λ Ingrosso, who opened their set with a captivating new track ID; Tiësto, who invited out his new fiancé, model Annika Backes, to the stage; and Steve Aoki, who assembled Daddy Yankee, Elvis Crespo, and Play-N-Skillz for a live performance of their recent release, “Azukita.”
For those who can’t count themselves lucky enough to have witnessed the live weekend spectacle, DA has compiled a comprehensive list of streams from UMF 2018 to relive the festival’s most magical moments.
Above & Beyond’s emotive brand of dance music is that which demands many ‘hands in the air’ moments of joy during their shows. It turns out these moments are so intense for some that they end up losing valuable possessions — specifically, their wedding rings.
Such a an ironically tragic incident befell Paris Hilton on Friday night, March 23, during the trance trio’s Common Ground Miami tour stop. During the early morning hours in a bout of ecstatic dancing, the heiress’ 20-carat engagement ring reportedly flew off her finger and into the surrounding chaos, according to witnesses. Panic immediately ensued, with Hilton’s fiancé leading security officers in a search for the valuable bauble. They found it at the bottom of an ice bucket two tables down.
While the neither the couples’ camps nor the venue have been reached for comment as of writing time, Above & Beyond themselves confirmed the incident via a well-wishing Tweet hours later. Jono Grant also posted a picture of himself, Paavo, and Hilton after the show.
