Above & Beyond Provide Soundtrack To Virgin Galantic’s Spaceship Launch

Here’s a press release from our friends from Anjunabeats that I personally found interesting… it’s cool to see EDM getting a plug in frontier technology like this.   Enjoy!

British dance act serve up theme to SpaceShipTwo plus exclusive DJ set at launch event

When Virgin Galactic were looking for some atmospheric music to herald the launch of their ground-breaking ‘SpaceShipTwo’ this week, they turned to the UK’s biggest DJs, Above & Beyond.

At an event hosted by Richard Branson in the Mojave Desert, the track chosen to accompany the official unveiling of SpaceShipTwo was Above & Beyond’s club anthem ‘Buzz’, which samples Buzz Aldrin’s original moon-landing dialogue. To mark the occasion, guests were also handed a special ‘Galactic Grooves’ USB wristband, featuring a selection of Above & Beyond’s songs.

After the unveiling and naming by governors Richardson and Schwarzenegger, Above & Beyond performed an exclusive DJ set in front of an audience of 800 dignitaries, celebrities and soon-to-be astronauts, plus the assembled global media.

Jono Grant from Above & Beyond said: “We’re big fans of all things space-related and so in terms of dream gigs, this is up there alongside our performance in Rio to 1million people. We’re now hoping to persuade Richard to let us DJ on the first Virgin Galactic passenger flight into space!”

The launch party also featured the first ever ice bar in the desert, hosted by Absolut and Swedish IceHotel, and all the guests were protected from the desert cold by designer space jackets supplied by PUMA. Finally, to close off the celebrations, all the guests were given the opportunity to view the stunning night skies using specialist telescopes supplied by Ron Dantowitz of the Clay Observatory, whose unique tracking cameras followed SpaceShipOne into space during the epic flights of 2004.

Virgin Galactic is the world’s first consumer space travel operator, with flights costing $200,000. Check www.virgingalactic.com for details.

The king of dance music is back! Perfecto Las Vegas is a double CD set consisting of 25 exclusive tracks, selected and mixed by the legendary Paul Oakenfold, which focus on the less pop-leaning, more ‘classic Oakey’ sound that you have been asking for since his highly successful, Grammy-nominated 2004 release Creamfields.

Paul Oakenfold has been hailed as one of the world’s leading DJ/ remixers by some of the most respected titles including CNN, BBC, Rolling Stone, BPM, Remix and more. Whether its producing countless film scores including the latest offering from Jerry Bruckheimer ‘G-Force’ to producing on Madonna’s latest release Celebration, Oakenfold is one of the most versatile and busiest forces in the music scene today.

A life-changing break to Ibiza back in 1987 saw Paul discovering Balearic music in clubs such as Amnesia. This inspired Oakenfold to DJ and promote parties in this style and in the late eighties Perfecto Records was born, releasing countless high profile releases and remixes in its path. During the late 90s, Paul helped to popularize trance and has become one of the best-known DJs in the world, graduating from house towards a melodic, commercial style of trance. Holding residencies at Amnesia and a Perfecto residency at Pacha, Paul also opened Ministry Of Sound in London and was their first resident, also holding a famed residency at the UK’s northern superclub Cream that is celebrated through the Grammy nominated 2004 compilation Creamfields, (also being nominated in 2007 with album A Lively Mind).

Over the past year Oakenfold has held a Perfecto residency at the Rain Nightclub, the legendary 25,000 square-foot nightclub and concert venue in Las Vegas. The only place in America that can legally hold parties 24-7 due to its licensing policy, Oakenfold describes Vegas as:

‘The new Ibiza of America. It used to be somewhere families went but now it’s the playground for partygoers who come for a long weekend. It’s been so good, I’ve just renewed my residency for another year and play most Saturdays. I did have options for residencies in New York, Miami and LA, but for me Vegas is the future’.

The Perfecto night is a fully produced show with 75 circus performers and cutting edge visuals and special effects, giving the 3,000-strong crowd a clubbing experience like no other. Due to demand, British Airways have now started flying direct from Heathrow, putting Vegas officially on the map for Brits who like to go further a-field for their party experiences.

Perfecto Las Vegas is a collection of records hand picked and mixed by Oakenfold that go back to his trance roots but are still influenced by his current Vegas soundscape. Including the new Paul Oakenfold track, Buenos Aires plus a 2009 remix of Taste Experience’s Summersault, the compilation also includes Shawn Michaels & Kenneth Thomas Funktion Won, Shannon Let The Music Play (David Delano, Dirty Lou & Swedish Egil Remix), Robert Vadney Away From You, Adam White’s Perfecto remix of Nat Monday Flammable, Elucidate Carousel and Torn Schmitt’s remix of The Fraction Awaken.

In the USA, digital sales of Perfecto Las Vegas beat the late and legendary Michael Jackson to the #1 spot on iTunes’ dance chart and #1 on the Amazon digital album, coming No 66 in the US Billboard Top 200 (beating David Guetta in the process). Oakenfold has surprisingly still found time to remix Michael Jackson classic Dancing Machine, become a Berklee UK Scholarship Honoree, Sell out two nights at the Hollywood Bowl (30,000 punters in total) AND open up for Madonna on all of her Sticky & Sweet UK and European dates. With new artist album Pop Killer to be released next year featuring The Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Gnarls Barkley and OneRepublic, Perfecto Las Vegas serves as a reminder that Oakenfold is still at the top of his game.

For those who can’t get to America any time soon, there will be a Paul Oakenfold 12-date tour around the UK to celebrate the release of Perfecto Las Vegas. For further information visit:

Leaked results of DJ Mag 2009 Final Results

Hey everyone, the staff here at TDM has gotten access to some of the leaked results for the DJ Mag 2009 finalists.  Here is a list of the top 150 artists that were most popular in this year’s polling.  And the winner this year is…. Armin van Buuren again!  Congratulations to Armin for the hat trick of 3 years in a row at #1 after many years at #3.  A lot of people hate on him because of his popularity and increasing mainstream-ness (is that even a word?), but if you really sit down a second and take a look at the energy, tracklist selection, and enthusiasm he brings to ALL of his live events, there is no doubt he deserves his spot.  As for some of the other DJ’s, I cannot say the same and I share others’ sentiments when they say it’s merely a popularity contest.  I’m just here to remind you that even though Armin may be popular, his contributions to trance (while maybe not as significant in the productions side this year) eclipse most artists.  And at the end of the day, this is a voting contest about DJ prowess is it not?  So without further ado, here is the top 150 and their respective changes from last year.
