Today’s the big day. Above & Beyond see the release their fourth artist album, Common Ground. As fans around the world begin to celebrate and listen to the new album, Armin van Buuren and the people at A State Trance helped celebrate the release Common Ground by hosting Jono Grant Above & Beyond to do a special one hour guest mix on their special ASOT 850 show.
During the ASOT 850 broadcast, Jono played a few tracks from the new album before coming on at the end the show for the hour-long mix. During the first appearance, he only played originals from Common Ground. Jono started with ‘The Inconsistency Principle’, ‘Always’ featuring Zoe Johnston, ‘Is It Love? (1001)’ featuring Jono’s own vocals, and ‘Northern Soul’ featuring Richard Bedford.
Once Armin finished up the first two hours the show, A&B returned for the final third hour. Here, Jono got a bit more creative with his song selection. He started the set f with Spencer Brown’s remix ‘Northern Soul’. Then upped the tempo with ‘Chocolate’ by FATUM followed by Common Ground songs ‘Tightrope’, ‘My Own Hymn’, and the Ilan Bluestone remix ‘We Are All We Need’.
It wouldn’t be a high energy Above & Beyond set without some new Anjunabeats tracks. You’ll hear a new Cosmic Gate remix ‘The Only Road’ by Gabriel & Dresden, a new collaboration track from Kyau & Albert and Genix, and a brand new Sunny Lax banger. And to finish f the set, Oliver Smith’s fan favorite from ABGT 250 ‘Lovingly’.
