Above & Beyond announces the end of their legendary Trance Around The World radio show

Trance fans around the world were shocked and saddened following Above & Beyond’s announcement that their 450 show in Bangalore would be their last (ever). They began this Trance Around The World #449 as a retrospective, but only framed it as a lead up to TATW 450. The episode is a touching recap of some of the most beautiful Anjunabeats releases, and will now be looked to as a trance milestone.

Episode #449 opens with Parker & Hanson’s “Arabesque,” and moves through favorites from Jaytech, Mat Zo, Andrew Bayer, and many more. The legendary trio appropriately ends with their own Analogue Haven remix of OceanLab’s “Breaking Ties.” To conclude the episode’s final track, the trio — who have been releasing this radio show weekly for the past nine years — state, “finally some news just in.. Trance Around the World 450 will be the last ever Trance Around the World…bye for now.”

We’re not sure what this means for the future of Above & Beyond, their releases, or touring plans but we’ll keep you updated as more information comes in. The announcement marks the end of an era and is, for many, a hard pill to swallow. Click the jump for the full tracklist and audio of the episode.
