Above & Beyond feat. Zoë Johnston - We're All We Need



"We Are All We Need" is an an album that places human relationships at its core, and explores the experiences and emotions that bind us – whether on defiant ode to friendship “We’re All We Need”, the anthemic “Blue Sky Action” or the possessive, post break-up tension of “Sticky Fingers”. As with 2011's "Group Therapy", Above & Beyond have worked with Andrew Bayer on the production of the album, which features 16 tracks including vocal collaborations with Zoë Johnston, Alex Vargas and Justine Suissa.

Above & Beyond commented: “As the writing process unfolded we kept noticing a recurring theme. Zoe hit it on the head with the beautiful song “We’re All We Need” and, after a minute’s thought, we had our album title. It’s very Above & Beyond and feels to us like a development of Group Therapy: you are most certainly included in our ‘We’!” 

No song on the album embodies these themes more than the aforementioned title track "We're All We Need", sung beautifully by Zoë Johnston.

Amos & Riot Night Remix
The Amos and Riot night has big kicks and sub, with tech elements and rolling percussions right from the off giving it a really good energy. Atmospheric plucks build the track to a key change thats sure to get crowds moving and Dj’s putting their hands in the air. Airy and almost ghostly pads build the track to the break down where the vocal drops. Sarah Jane has one of those voices and hits the sweet spot as soon as you hear it. Accompanied by big trance pads the vocals works beautifully to bring in the main hook of pure uplifting chords. As they filter out the vocals return to build the track to the drop. And it’s a drop sure to send crowds into hysteria. One not to miss on Digitized and if vocal you trance is your thing, you need this tune in your collection.
Steve Morley Remix
Next up on remix duties is Steve Morley with his uplifting and energetic style. Starting with filtering tech acid sounds a lovely pluck the pads builds atmospherically as it develop. Evolving pads and plucky leads continue to build the euphoric feeling as it reaches the main break down. Big nord style pads filter up bring the vocal with them. This rework really highlights Sarahs voice and the minimal start to the break make this one for those who like vocal trance built around the vocal. Keeping it simple, but really really effective this breakdown really makes the vocal shine and will have listeners hands in the air as it build to a crescendo. Giving the lead a different flavour again Steve delivers with a bright rolling lead arp which builds and builds to the drop, which is another moment or Morley madness in the making. If pure uplifting trance is your thing, this is definitely the version for you and will be in your “got to play list” for a while to come.
Mike Rodas Remix
The Mike Rodas remix brings a faster paced take on Amos’ version with rolling 16th basses that really drive the track along. Bringing the vocals in nice and early in this remix it gives the track a different feel. Big filtering pads and square arps build the track as it moves towards the break, and brings the vocal back in, before dropping listeners into break that will bring one of those hands in the air with your eyes closed moments to crowds everywhere. Ethnics style pads and deep subby bass pads mean this remix will really work on bug systems in big venues; not to mention everywhere else! Again, using the vocals to the build the track back up, this time the vocal point after the break is big ducking pads, accompanied by the vocals and ethnic pads. Mike Rodas has done a great job putting a different spin on this track. Check it out. You won’t be disappointed.
That concludes yet another great pack from Digitized.

Lyrics: Andrew Rayel feat. Alexandra Badoi - Goodbye


Lyrics: Andrew Rayel feat. Alexandra Badoi - Goodbye

Heaven,

Open your doors,
'Ready your angels
Maybe she falls…
Give her two wings,
Teach her to fly,
No fear and no tears,
She’ll say just goodbye…

Without your love
All is a lie,
There’s cold and pain inside,
You fade that shining light…
Please stop her,
Before she says goodbye…
