Despite what naysayers may claim, trance music can sway in myriad directions and isn’t always insipid or soulless. More than most, Grammy-nominated London trio Above & Beyond have challenged the trance stereotype by approaching it from a singer-songwriter (and even acoustic) perspective. Launched by Above & Beyond in 2000, the imprint Anjunabeats represents nearly 30 artists, DJs and producers. Having recently released its 12th compilation, Anjunabeats’ largest North American tour to date touches down at Club Rio with sets by Grum (Glasgow), Jason Ross (Los Angeles) and Ilan Bluestone (London).
