Official Electric Zoo Preview Part Four: Group Therapy

27 August 2012 - Scarlette -


Electric Zoo is less than one week away and people from all over are packing their bags and heading to New York for this end of the summer bang. Group Therapy has plans for taking over the Hilltop Arena for one major show of  back to back performances by some the years most outstanding artists.  Here is a closer look at the guys who will be making Friday, August 31st one for the books!

Above & Beyond: CONNECTION. If one word sums up the phenomenon of ABOVE & BEYOND then that is surely it. Whether it’s the thousands of A&B fans singing their lyrics back at them in concert halls from Beirut to Brixton, or the millions that tune in for their weekly TATW radio show, connection – real human connection – is at the heart of all things that define Above & Beyond.

Andrew Bayer: Musical genius is a phrase so often overused but in ANDREW BAYER’s case its use is justified. Having previously produced with legends such as BT and Above & Beyond, the Washington-raised producer is one of the most prolific and eclectic producer in today’s scene – with 6 of his productions featuring on the recent Anjunadeep 04 compilation, and recent EPs and singles covering everything from deep house to downtempo electronica, progressive to deep trance.

Gabriel & Dresden: With gigs at some of the world’s biggest festivals, clubs and events planned and a new compilation in the making, GABRIEL & DRESDEN are all set to do what they love most: celebrate music. And we’re all invited. For electronic dance music fanatics, the year 2011 marks a new musical promise. After three years of work apart, the critically acclaimed and multiple award-winning duo of Josh Gabriel and Dave Dresden are back together with a new energy and spirit.

Mat Zo: At 21 years of age, MAT ZO is living the dream – part of a new breed of precocious, unrestricted DJ/producers that are making big noises without the one-dimensional genre blinkers of old. As he works busily behind the scenes on his debut artist album for Anjunabeats, Zo’s kaleidoscopic creativity is set to be unleashed in full force. With everything from French house to rock-riddled, funk-fuelled electro and hip-hop vibes already planned for the album, Zo’s genre-wrecking visions are set to be realized in the most explosive manner imaginable.

Ferry Corsten: A world-famous EDM DJ/producer who consistently sells-out the world’s most acoustically lush nightclubs and festival stages, FERRY CORSTEN embodies the sound of uplifting, melodic trance, although he’s also known for techno, electro and progressive-house. Never one to rest on his laurels, Corsten is a tireless overachiever and his tour itinerary reads like an exotic manifest of the world’s must-attend events.

Norin & Rad: In just a short period of time Bruce Karlsson and Nick Sember have managed to gain respect and recognition from the likes of Above & Beyond, Armin Van Buuren and many more. Better known in the EDM scene as NORIN & RAD, these two Southern California boys are really showing the world their unique take on trance.

Zack Roth: ZACK ROTH has been a celebrated NYC-based DJ for the better part of a decade, regularly performing at acclaimed clubs throughout his native city and beyond. In 2011 alone, he played alongside some of the world’s biggest djs, the likes of Armin van Buuren, Above & Beyond, Markus Schulz, and Ferry Corsten in front of sold-out crowds at Roseland Ballroom, Best Buy Theater, Pacha NYC, and of course Electric Zoo. Can’t wait for what he has in store for Electric Zoo 2012!
