Preview, Progressive House | Above & Beyond – Mariana Trench [Preview]

Posted by on November 2, 2013

Above & Beyond premiered this at ABGT 50 and now we’ve got a full-ish version to stream at our leisure. In form and structure, “Mariana Trench” bears quite a bit of resemblance to the trio’s homage to Breaking Bad, “Walter White”; both tracks have hard, driving basslines that fade into melodic breaks, before electro-inspired builds jack the energy level back up. And is that a key change at the end? Goodness. This may be yet another departure from the group’s trancier Tri-State days but it’s sure to be an absolute monster live. No word on a release date yet so keep your eyes peeled.

Trance | Above & Beyond – Walter White

Walter White
If there is anyone I would want to embody the cunning, vicious, daring, ruthless, calculated nature of Walter White aka Heisenberg, Above & Beyond would be on my short list. One of the highlights of Anjunabeats Volume 10, and their recent live sets, the relentless, remorseless “Walter White” shows a departure from their typical “Group Therapy” style that has placed them uniquely among the trance greats. Quick pulsing electro begins rights away and gives way to a tranced out break, reminding us of the euphoric power of Above & Beyond, but then just like Walter White, as soon as you think you are out of the woods, quick bursts of booming synths come into the foreground, aided by growling electro.
