Above & Beyond – Hello (Original Mix)
In a similar vein to their December effort, “Mariana Trench,” Above & Beyond‘s newest’s original capitalizes on the intensity of their live shows. Designed for the peak hour of a performance when the momentum of a set is seemingly unstoppable, “Hello” is a potent production to say the least. While the initial hook grabs you easily with its pleasantly distorted drive, the breakdown that follows is a thing of pure beauty. It’s a fact: no one can sweep you off your feet with luscious, carefully-orchestrated breakdowns like Jono, Tony, and Paavo, and the grandeur of their latest bridge is simply intoxicating. Yet just as soon as we’re swooning to the dazzling chords and curious arpeggios, the energy is quickly ascending back up, elevating to that potent peak of ramping distortion. And when it finally hits, it’s just as satisfying as the first time around. We have no doubt that Above & Beyond’s latest will be a crowd favorite at future shows.
