Cream Ibiza Above & Beyond

World clubbing super-brand Cream kicks off the summer season with a double CD and digital release, Cream Ibiza mixed by award-winning trio Above & Beyond.

As the longest running UK club night on the island, taking over Thursday nights, Cream Ibiza brings together the world’s top DJs and thousands of clubbers to the award winning ‘World’s Best Club’ Amnesia. With mammoth weekly parties that will see Above & Beyond joined by the likes of Paul van Dyk, Eddie Halliwell, Calvin Harris, Sander van Doorn, Laidback Luke, and Example at the club this summer.

Described by DJ Mag as “the biggest electronic DJing and production collective the UK has ever produced,” Jono Grant, Tony McGuinness and Paavo Siljamaki AKA Above & Beyond made an obvious choice for this year’s installment of the Cream compilation series.

Producers, songwriters, DJ’s and owners of the renowned Anjunabeats label, Above & Beyond have remained down-to-earth and as determined as ever despite the numerous accolades, remixing greats like Madonna and Radiohead and selling out shows from Bombay to Brixton Academy. 2011 saw the release of their second studio album Group Therapy. Described by Mixmag as “the artist album of the year”, it topped the dance charts in both the UK and USA.

Now they are set to perform at Cream Ibiza this summer, headlining six dates through June to September. Whether you’re heading over to the White Isle or not, Above & Beyond’s Cream Ibiza mix is essential listening for the summer.

This year’s Cream Ibiza tracklist perfectly reflects the ethos of Above & Beyond, taking in their biggest tried and tested tunes, fan favourites and exclusive new tracks – all guaranteed main room Ibiza material. Alongside hot tracks from the likes of Cosmic Gate, Dirty South, Kyau & Albert and Depeche Mode (Eric Prydz Remix) Cream Ibiza also features exclusive new mixes of Above & Beyond’s Stealing Time (from the critically acclaimed debut album Tri-State) and On My Way To Heaven, plus brand new remixes of Tranquillity Base (aka Above & Beyond)  Razorfish by Jerome Isma-Ae and of the Above & Beyond and Andy Moor classic “Air For Life” by Norin & Rad.

David Guetta Ally Pally Show @ Alexandra Palace Friday 1st & Saturday 2nd June 2012

Plus special guests Nervo, Nicky Romero. Will.i.am confirmed to play back to back dj set on June 2nd.

Two-time Grammy winning internationally respected artist/producer/DJ David Guetta has announced massive headline, bank holiday weekend shows at London’s Alexandra Palace on Friday 1st & Saturday 2nd June 2012.

DJ Magazine’s Number 1 DJ in World David Guetta cemented his status with 2009’s multi-platinum One Love; a genre-busting hitmaker whose in-your-face fusion of electro and hip-hop beautifully warps the pop landscape. Now, with his fifth studio album Nothing But The Beat (out now), Guetta builds on that breakthrough momentum and takes his decades-spanning career to a frenetic new level marked by bigger hooks and more brain-bending beats.

For help in blowing up those musical boundaries, Guetta assembled an A-team of collaborators sure to thrill enthusiasts from all ends of the pop spectrum. Nothing But The Beat features no fewer than 17 guest artists, from hip-hop royalty (Snoop Dogg, Ludacris, Timbaland) and game-changing rappers (Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne) to R&B superstars (Usher, Chris Brown, Akon) and breakout pop acts (Dev, Jessie J). Rounded out by Jennifer Hudson, Flo Rida, Taio Cruz, Sia, and Guetta’s “fellow mad scientist” Will.I.Am., that roster was carefully culled to guarantee a filler-free album destined to deliver hit after hit.

That sizable success isn’t nearly limited to Guetta’s work as a recording artist and DJ. In addition to selling more than 20 million records worldwide he has produced No1′s for some of the greatest stars on the planet. Guetta acted as producer on the Black Eyed Peas’ “I Gotta Feeling” (the highest-selling digital release in music history). Along with his two Grammys (one for his remix of Madonna’s “Revolver” in 2011, the other for his remix of One Love’s “When Love Takes Over), Guetta took home the Best DJ, Best Producer, and Best-Selling French Artist prizes at the 2010 World Music Awards. And having kicked off his DJ career as a teenager in his native France, Guetta also partners with his wife Cathy on promoting duties for the legendary F*** Me I’m Famous dance parties (held in locations like Ibiza, Miami, New York, and Las Vegas since 1995).
