 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Above & Beyond are rocking the electronic music world with another magical single called Northern Soul featuring the undeniably powerful vocal performance by the one and only Richard Bedford. The track is dedicated to the USA city of Detroit but the lyrics will resonate to all those fans out there who passed through difficult hard to bare moments but they know that unfortunate situations will never crack their soul and usually all the strength and motivation can be found within the most mysterious part of human existence that is his soul of course. The track is energetic mainstage big room proglifting trancer with thumping grooves, dominating powerful basslines and breakdown to die for with cool angelic chorus like voices along with nice piano lines followed by enormous synths stabs that promise to elevate you instantly. The build up is intense leading to the anthemic hands in the air climax that signals the courage and strength to move on and find the resolution in your life mysteries. Above & Beyond with Richard Bedford is simply mindblowing and most importantly inspiring or even life changing. #PureGold #PureFuture Love IT   [/content]
