1. ABOVE & BEYOND, ZOE JOHNSTON “ALCHEMY” [MYON & SHANE 54 REDEMPTION MIX] (ANJUNABEATS) Release Date: 2012-12-3edmcharts_alchemy_a&b

Rating: ★★★★★

Genre: Progressive House

Origin: UK

Description: After Above & Beyond’s massive album release of Group Therapy, “Alchemy” is one single that really stood out. Thanks to Hungarian producers Myon & Shane 54, their new remix is killer. It adds a darkened feel to the original which is much more friendly towards a club. Zoe Johnston has become the go to female vocalist for A&B, and she never disappoints, especially not on this #1 single.
