Following their critically acclaimed debut album "Empire" ("blown away on first listen *****" Mixmag), Finnish trance favourites Super8 & Tab have announced their highly anticipated second album "Unified" - released on Above & Beyond's globally renowned Anjunabeats on 27 October.
As best selling artists on the Anjunabeats label for many years, Super8 & Tab have continued to lead the way in the global trance scene with recent single "No Frontiers" (with Julie Thompson) their latest anthem. Taken from the album, the single follows their quirky collaboration with Jaytech - "Code Red”.
Showcased by some of the biggest artists in the current scene (Above & Beyond, Armin van Buuren, Seven Lions), Super8 & Tab’s music has reached all corners of the globe, with the pair themselves bringing dance floors together at the biggest events on the globe - London’s SW4 Festival, the world famous Ministry of Sound and Ibiza’s Cream, Amnesia to name but a few.
With both Super8 (Miika Eloranta) and Tab (Janne Mansnerus) joining fatherhood recently, the family bond drives the “Unified” concept. A focused return to the communal experiences of the dancefloor, "Unified" is also Super8 & Tab at their most uplifting and energetic. The title also signifies the many fruitful collaborations that colour the album's sounds.
Grammy award winning and legendary artist BT adds his signature stamp to “Aika” - a pulsating, high energy club anthem, while Anjuna family favourite Sunny Lax chips in and adds his customary euphoric flavours to the mix on “Sonata”. Italy’s 7 Skies serves up a brace, firstly on the slow-motion and spacey “Antipodes”, then the dark and sinister “Rubicon”. As featured on debut album “Empire”, Jan Burton returns to collaborate on two tracks for this record, lending his tortured and emotive vocals to slow groover “Who Needs Pain”, and the piano soaked, spine tingling “Souls Of Lovers”.
To mark the release of their new album, Super8 & Tab will be hosting two launch parties. Firstly at the legendary London venue Ministry Of Sound for The Gallery, where they will be joined by friends and collaborators Jaytech and Orkidea. For the second, they bring it home to Finland with a showcase at Helsinki’s finest venue, Empire, giving fans the chance to sample some of the delights featured on their newest creation. In addition an extensive North American tour will follow taking in 11 dates with more to be added.
