From the Press Release:

Above & Beyond, one of the UK's biggest dance acts, today release their critically acclaimed 'Above & Beyond Acoustic' album, the studio album behind one of the most unique and interesting projects to emerge from the dance music space in recent memory. 

Collecting the trio's best loved songs and re-imagining them as rich orchestral acoustic arrangements, 'Above & Beyond Acoustic' contains the studio recordings behind their already legendary acoustic shows at London's Porchester Hall and LA's Greek Theatre - described by Billboard as "one of the finest shows in dance music history." Upon its release today, the album went straight in at number one in the iTunes US Dance Album Chart.

For their acoustic project, Above & Beyond are putting aside their CDJs and lighting rigs to showcase their deeply-rooted musicianship and classical training - inviting comparisons with London Grammar, Zero 7 and Portishead. Working with three singers, a string quartet, harpist, drummer and bassist, Above & Beyond Acoustic saw each of the three band members take a central part in both recording and performance - Tony McGuinness sings and plays guitar, mandolin and ukulele, Paavo Siljamäki plays the grand piano and cello, and Jono Grant plays the Rhodes piano, guitar and vibraphone. ."
