California’s Seven Lions, aka Jeff Montalvo, is the winner of Above & Beyond’s “You Got To Go” remix competition with Beatport. His original productions offer a rich, melodic spin on dubstep, and that’s exactly the approach he takes with his "You Got To Go" remix, turning Above & Beyond’s smooth, streamlined anthem into a great, swaggering dubstep groove that doesn’t sacrifice the original’s beauty, no matter how heavy it gets.

"We listened to every single entry at least once to make sure we weren’t missing something; the voting aspect of the competition is important but we wanted to pick the best one in terms of quality. And independently every one of us picked the same winner, so it was unanimous. The Seven Lions mix starts out great (using a harmony as the main vocal line gets it off in a different direction straight away) and goes on to deliver in every way - musically it works, vocally it works and the production is excellent.” Above & Beyond

Zoë Johnston Interview




A vital ingredient within the complex musical mix of "Group Therapy", Zoë Johnston began her relationship with Above & Beyond through tracks like the now-classic "Good For Me" and "No One On Earth" - having previously worked with names like Faithless, Midlands downtempo legends Bent and Delerium.

As her bond with Jono, Tony and Paavo continued to grow, Johnston naturally developed into the dominant female voice on their second album "Group Therapy" - contributing her distinctive, searching tones to tracks like "Love Is Not Enough", "Alchemy" and current single "You Got To Go". As "You Go To Go" hits the download stores, we caught up with one of the UK’s finest female vocalists to delve a little further into her past and present.


How did your relationship with Above & Beyond first come about?
"I got a call from my cousin some years ago telling me about his old school friend Jono Grant, who was writing music with two other guys and seeking a voice for the newer tracks. My name had come up, numbers got passed along, I received a brilliant letter from Tony with drawings all up the margins and a CD with four tracks to listen to, got quite attached to one of them and between us all we then created "No-One On Earth".

Why do you think your vocals fit so well with Above & Beyond’s music?
"I think everybody’s personalities come through well in the music and somehow that creates balance. There’s probably a good mixture of moods and textures in there due to all the hands on board, and maybe where there’s a lot of grittiness my voice provides a bit of contrast. I think that contrast allows the ear to appreciate each part more than if they stood alone."

What has been your favourite moment working with them?
"I’ve had so many lovely, lovely times with them I find that question very hard to answer. It honestly hasn’t felt like work at all, any of it. I’ve had great times in their cosy studio, singing and writing and catching up on all our lives in between doing those things. Rolling on the floor in painful hysterics over something ridiculous in an L.A hotel, evening out all that is wonky with the world with Tony in his local pub, feeling such genuine togetherness whenever I’ve sung live with them all, sharing precious minutes of life with a few thousand people who are all united in having an emotional investment in the music…. I’ve had lots of favourite moments."

How would you describe Group Therapy’s overall sound and how does that differ from Tri-State?
"I think "Group Therapy" is resilient, tough, tenacious, stretched up tall, full of passion and happiness, courageous and wildly excited. I also think it is fairly bruised, raw, troubled, hurting, reflective, sad and wholly truthful. "Tri-State" has its own collection of associated words - some are the same, many others are different."


All the songs that you lend your vocals to on “Group Therapy” seem to have some focus on moving on and lost loves. Can you tell us some of the stories behind the songs?
"Not all of them are autobiographical. Some of them are, and yes, there is a lot of loss in there, as well as all the associated pain which attaches itself to sad events until healing eventually arrives at the door waving all its flags. It was very healing being able to reflect on things in the music. My heart is a lot fatter again now and I like it that way."

Which tracks on the album do you feel especially connected to?
"I love the line "I want to get home but there’s water on the road" in "On My Way To Heaven". A massive part of my heart fell into "Love Is Not Enough" so that track will always mean a lot to me - and the optimistic message of "You Got To Go" also has a piece of me in it. I feel very connected to the album as a whole, too. I’ve been so touched by the constant Above & Beyond drive to include me, look after me, listen to me, absorb me into the project and really nurture whatever I chose to spill out. That along with forging some really great friendships has resulted in me being able to put so much more into the album (and consequently feeling much fonder of it) than I might have done if had I turned up to sing for a few hours and then got back on a train every once in a while."


Growing up, who influenced you musically and did you always know you wanted to be a musician?
"I never thought about ‘being’ a musician. I think I am just someone who can sing to say something. I feel fortunate because I don’t know what I would do with the stuff inside me if I couldn’t. When I was a child I just adored music of all different kinds, and then found comfort and release in writing my own. I was fascinated by songs which told stories which you instinctively knew to be the whole truth, and the bravery in saying something very personal. I was part of a big family growing up, so there was all sorts being played around the house – goth stuff, 60s pop, 70s folk, boy/girl band tunes, classical music, 30s love songs, fun stuff from the 80s. To name just a few I’ve absorbed and loved there’s Stevie Wonder, Talk Talk, Beck, Joni Mitchell, Chet Baker, Bjork, Al Bowlly, Alison Krauss, Eddi Reader, Sting, Radiohead, George Michael, Neil Young….. "

I read that you work best when you’re alone at night, can you tell us more about your creative process and why you work that way?
"You must have read that a while ago! The alone bit is definitely true, but having a child altered the night-time indulgences a few years ago. It probably still would be my preference though. I like the stillness. I found I could think more freely within those spaces. I have almost always written and recorded alone, and I will always function better that way. If you’re going to say something honest and considered about your own life, how can you do that with an external force chipping in? I think it’s only by spending enough time by yourself that can you really, really, really know how you feel and what it is you want to say."

Finally, what does the future hold?
"Lots of happiness and lots of lovely people, I hope. Definitely more music – I’ve got dozens of songs of my own which are virtually finished but needing a little more attention and some pennies fed into them, and it’s important to me that I get them out. I also paint a lot and have almost completed a huge photo-realist picture in acrylic called "Ice Cream" which I am planning on entering in a national competition shortly. I want to paint more to create a series and then put on an exhibition. Also, more exciting music projects and more live gigs with Above & Beyond, all being well. So long as it involves creating stuff and connecting with great people, I’ll be happy."

Featuring the distinctive vocals of Zoë Johnston, “You Got To Go” is the latest single to be taken from Above & Beyond’s critically acclaimed second artist album “Group Therapy” – described by Mixmag as “the biggest artist album of the year”.

Following in the footsteps of Above & Beyond’s BBC Radio 1 playlisted singles “Sun & Moon” and “Thing Called Love”, the more optimistic “You Got To Go” is a song about seizing the moment and taking control of the opportunities in front of you.

Inspired by Kyau & Albert’s energised club remix of the original album version, the A&B vs. K&A Radio Edit combines the melodic riff-driven energy of the Kyau & Albert Remix with a more radio-focused approach – capturing the song’s beauty and orchestral touches perfectly.

The release package will also include the club-driven Kyau & Albert remix, a musical summertime rework from the legendary MJ Cole, as well as a second more bass-driven dub from the garage pioneer. A second package includes Above & Beyond’s groove-fuelled Club Mix, the Extended Album Mix and an organic tech-house version from upcoming duo Dusky.
