Joining Above & Beyond for a Group Therapy guest mix this week is one of their favourite producers, Jerome Isma-Ae.
With a keen ear for dynamic, percussion led tracks, Jerome has carved a niche for himself in the progressive house world. His stripped back productions include 2011's "Speed", released on his own Jee imprint, and the super-car series alongside long time collaborator Sebastian Krieg.
Jerome has also applied his unique sound to several Anjuna releases, including Komytea's "Professional Killers", Above & Beyond "Anjunabeach" and most recently Tranquility Base "Razorfish".
His latest release sees him team up with ilan Bluestone on the remix of Vinny Troia feat. Jaidene Veda, "Fade Into You", a combination we look forward to hearing more from in the future.
Tune in Friday to hear his guest mix for ABGT 029.
Gracing us with a Group Therapy guest mix this week is German producer Ronski Speed.
With over 15 years experience, Ron has continued to be at the forefront of the trance scene, making regular appearances on Kyau & Albert's Euphonic records. Maintaining one foot firmly rooted in the classic trance sound, Ron's productions marry modern electronic influences with an old school sensibility.
As a versatile producer, Ron has reworked the likes of Aly & Fila, Armin Van Buuren and Above & Beyond, frequently remixing Anjunabeats tracks. However, he made his full original debut only this year, with the "Anjunabeats Volume 10" favourite "Sanity Dub".
His new single "Pink Skye" alongside Syntrobic and Renee Stahl is due for release on Anjunabeats this Monday. Once again harking back to the vintage trance feel, "Pink Skye" was described by Above & Beyond's Tony as his favourite track from "Anjunabeats Volume 10".
Tune in this Friday to hear the Ronski Speed guest mix, featuring a selection of exclusives from his new artist album "Second World".
This week's guest mix comes from a Norwegian producer and long standing member of our Anjuna family, Øistein Johan Eide, better known as Boom Jinx.
A prolific composer, Øistein started his career producing music for the TV and film industry. He turned his attention to dance music in 2005, initially signing to Anjunadeep with "Too Free To Follow".
Equally adept with intricate progressive arrangements and peak time, bass driven anthems, Øistein continued to float between Anjunabeats and Anjunadeep, collaborating with the likes of Oliver Smith, Jaytech and most frequently Andrew Bayer on "To The Six" and "Keyboard Cowboys". He also joined Above & Beyond for Trance Around The World 350 in L.A..
Over the last 2 years Øistein has turned his ear to vocal tracks; first working with Justine Suissa on "Phoenix From The Flames" and Maor Levi and Ashley Tomberlin on his latest single "When You Loved Me".

In anticipation of their imminent Group Therapy launch weekender on May 17 & 18 at Wynn Las Vegas, Above & Beyond have made a short film about their summer residency.
The video was made on location in Las Vegas and London by the acclaimed British director Steve Glashier, who also directed the band's "On A Good Day (Metropolis)" video back in 2010. "Steve's a brilliant documentary film maker, he's able to make our everyday lives look like the movies" said Tony. "It's just a typical day at the office for us."
"Las Vegas is now one of the most important and fast-growing dance music destinations on the planet," explains Jono. "For people in North America, Las Vegas is now as important as Ibiza is for Europeans. Wynn is the best resort on the strip and is the perfect home for our Group Therapy show."
Come May 17, Vegas will host a special Group Therapy show never seen before. "We've toured the Group Therapy show the world over but a residency in Vegas demands a little bit extra from us and the venue. Wynn have really pulled out all the stops to make these shows really special and we can't wait to bring what will be a unique Group Therapy experience to Wynn and Las Vegas for the first time,” said Paavo.
Above & Beyond have announced the first run of Group Therapy residency shows at Wynn Las Vegas, with more dates to be revealed soon:
Joining Above & Beyond on this week's show is a Grammy nominated artist and dance music pioneer, Brian Transeau aka BT.
Throughout his 2 decades in the music industry, Brian has continued to push the boundaries of dance music; be it at the decks where he was one of the first digital DJs, or in the studio as an audio technician.
As a vocal artist, Brian has collaborated with the likes of Andrew Bayer on "The Emergency" and the instantly recognisable "Love Comes Again" with Tiesto.
This summer will see the release of his latest album, featuring 2 favourites from the last 12 months; the beautiful "Skylarking" and "Must Be The Love" alongside Nadia Ali and Anjunabeats favourite Arty.
Tune in Friday to hear his exclusive mix and the a selection of world exclusives from the new album.
A stand-out track from their recent #1 iTunes Dance Album "Anjunabeats Volume 10", Above & Beyond's "Walter White" is the trio's most recent club anthem.
Inspired by the lead character from the band's favourite TV programme, "Walter White" goes on a journey through many moods - just like the man himself.
Starting off with a powerful, progressive-meets-tech groove, "Walter White" leads into a classy melodic breakdown, before crashing into the darkness with insistent, stabbing synths.
A club monster that brings together the many sides of Above & Beyond, "Walter White" has already been tested to devastating effect in all of the Anjunabeats bosses' recent sets - including their main-stage show at the recent Ultra Festival.

Joining Above & Beyond on guest mix duties this week is a true favourite of the Anjuna family, James 'Jimbo' Cayzer, aka Jaytech.
Sharing a long history with both Anjuna labels, Jaytech made his debut on Anjunadeep in 2007. A succession of catchy progressive singles followed, culminating in the release of his debut artist album "Everything Is OK" in June 2008.
As one of the scene's sharpest mixers, Jaytech took to the decks for the second, third and forth instalments of the Anjunadeep compilation series, before moving firmly into the big room with his second album "Multiverse", released in 2012.
With his latest single, the Anjunabeats Volume 10 electro trance groover "Inception" out now, we look forward to seeing what Jimbo has in store on Friday's guest mix.
This week Above & Beyond welcome one of the most requested guests on to the show, as Andrew Bayer joins them for #ABGT024.
Having first joined the label at the age of 18 as one half of the Signalrunners, Andrew broke out as a solo artist on Anjunadeep, with the likes of "To The Six" (alongside regular collaborator Boom Jinx) and the more club orientated "The Taxi Driver".
In 2011 he released his critically acclaimed debut artist album "It's Artificial" on Anjunabeats. Drawing from an array of musical influences, the album was described by global dance bible Mixmag as "an incredible album of sophisticated electronica".
This month now sees the release of his highly anticipated second LP, "If It Were You, We'd Never Leave". A personal and emotive electronica project, "If It Were You, We'd Never Leave" has already been named by Mojo Magazine as "electronica album of the month", with radio support from BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe and Tom Ravenscroft and Giles Peterson on 6 Music.
Tune in this Friday for what is sure to be an enthralling journey, as Above & Beyond welcome Andrew Bayer on to the show.
