At the very end of the Trance Around the World #449 podcast, Above & Beyond‘s loyal worldwide audience learned episode #450, live from Bangalore India, would be the last. After nine years, the weekly two-hour radio show – known for featuring the latest and greatest in Trance and Progressive, often from Above & Beyond’s label Anjunabeats – would be no more. What we learned, however, was this was actually a re-branding effort: Trance Around the World would disappear, only to reemerge as Group Therapy Radio, set to premier this Friday November 16.

To celebrate the 450th episode of Trance Around the World, the Above & Beyond boys brought their Group Therapy show to Bangalore India for six+ hours of some of the best dance music in the world. Just as they did for episode #400 (in Lebanon), they invited their friends in the business to play and record live sets. For this year’s milestone, they brought out two of my favorite artists in Mat Zo and Norin & Rad (one of our favorites from Electric Zoo 2012) as well as Andrew Bayer (who has been producing forever but only just started DJing) and Jody Wisternoff (one half of the group Way Out West) for five DJ sets (including Above & Beyond’s two-hour set) that all rocked the crowd but at the same time stayed unique to each artist’s style.

Click through to hear these awesome sets and to take a look at the tracks that were played. I continue to be amazed at how impressive and talented Above & Beyond are during their massive live sets, but I also continue to be amazed at what Mat Zo and Norin & Rad bring to the table (or should I say, the speakers) with their sounds.
