Once the mainstay of our Top 10, trance is no longer the dominant sound of the world's big-room clubs. Of course, EDM is today the world's mainstream sound du jour, which even Tiësto is now embracing — however, that hasn't stopped this London trio sticking to their guns.
While the Anjunabeats bosses have delved deeper into house territory with their 'deep' spin-off, they've continued to stay true to the supple melodica of their DJ sets in 2015. Third studio LP 'We Are All We Need' is as earnest as you'd expect, feeding elegant, Goan-influenced styles into a pop formula, while the return of their acoustic show in 2016 will see them illuminate their illustrious club tracks as a live band. Above & Beyond are still maturing — continually evolving — and their following is still strong, placing in the top 30 in the poll again.
