When Above & Beyond spread melodious beats at Vh1 Supersonic 2014

Candolim (Goa), Dec 30 (IANS) Music is known as a universal language and this message was reinforced on the third day of the ongoing edition of Vh1 Supersonic 2014. The event saw a heady mix of electronic dance music and melodious tracks by English dance music group Above & Beyond.

The four-day annual musical extravaganza, which started Dec 27 at Candolim Beach here, has witnessed some of the world’s most celebrated music artists from various genres like DJ Dillon Francis and DJ Paul van Dyk amongst others setting the right tempo with their gigs.
However, the third day was all about English band Above & Beyond.
A “Music unites us all” message was displayed during the performance of Jono Grant of English dance music group Above & Beyond that tied the audience together sending a wave of frenzy. Electronic dance music (EDM) is synonymous to loud music and fast beats, but this band presented a soothing performance with a blend of electronic beats.
There were waves, birds, blue sky as visuals to back-up band’s performance that propelled the crowd to groove together and feel the calmness of music. The performance was certainly the highlight of the day as they orchestrated an emotional ride for the audience.
The band member Tony McGuinness performed at the inaugural edition of the music fest last year and this year Grant treated Indian audience with his music. Grant ended his gig with a visual note that read “Goodbyes are not for forever”.
The second edition of the music fest brought music-lovers from India and around the world together presenting a spectacle of dazzling lights and pulsating beats spread over three stages: the Iron Heart stage, Spectrum stage and Laboratoire Supersonique.
Other artists, who got the audience pumping on their energetic music were US-based Roger Sanchez and DJ Alvaro. Indian DJs like Pearl, Nawed Khan and Raghav Holla also enthralled the crowd with their tracks.
The fest has an impressive line up with Infected Mushroom and Dash Berlin in the list for a fitting end to the music festival.
