On January 24, the full film of Above & Beyond Acoustic at London’s Porchester Hall debuts on THUMP—it’s a high-def concert film that captures the outfit’s sold-out shows as they decided to reinterpret their dance beats using a 24-piece orchestra.

In 2013, Above & Beyond performed some of their best-loved songs acoustically as part of a 15-piece band, selling out four shows at London’s famous Porchester Hall. The response from fans was so overwhelming it led to two sold-out nights across the pond at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles in October, described by Billboard Magazine as ”one of the finest and more memorable shows in EDM history.”

For those not in the know, Above & Beyond is Jono Grant, Tony McGuinness, and Paavo Siljamäki. Over the years they’ve gone from remixing Madonna and Radiohead and running the Anjunabeats label to their current global standing as ”the biggest electronic DJing and production collective the UK has ever produced,” according to DJ Mag anyway. The trio have played to one million people on Barra Beach in Rio de Janeiro, soundtracked the launch of Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic SpaceShipTwo in the Mojave desert, and sold out the Hollywood Palladium faster than anyone in history. Every week, their Group Therapy radio show reaches over 25 million people worldwide. Wild!

Thump partnered with Above & Beyond to create a concert film unlike any other, capturing the Porchester Hall performances and the story behind the acoustic project in riveting detail. You can get a brief taste of the movie here before we drop the full-length on January 24.
The film showcases acoustic performances of 12 Above & Beyond classics:

Small Moments
Miracle
You Gotta Go
Satellite / Stealing Time
Thing Called Love
Can’t Sleep
Sun & Moon
Good for Me
Sirens of the Sea
Love Is Not Enough
On a Good Day
Alone Tonight
Making Plans

The songs performed at Porchester Hall also form the basis of the ”Above & Beyond Acoustic” studio album, which was recorded in the spring and summer of 2013 and features a 24-piece orchestra. The album is available now for pre-order as CD, Digital Download and Limited Edition Photographic Book with CD / DVD of the film at www.aboveandbeyond.nu/acoustic
