Every great artist has their crowning moment; their coming of age. After years of DJ support by everyone from Above & Beyond to Armin, that moment is now for Super8 & Tab. Completing their transition from architects of the most innovative trance to true album artists, the Finnish duo are here with 'Empire' – an 11 track journey that will sit as easily on a lazy Sunday stereo as it will a lazer-shot 3am stadium.

Firmly established as Anjunabeats best selling artists behind Above & Beyond, the humble pair have been building up to this moment ever since joining forces in 2005. As each year has passed, accolades like their IDMA Best Compilation ('Anjunabeats Worldwide 01'), Beatport number one chart positions and five star reviews in global dance bibles like Mixmag and DJMag have become increasingly regular propositions.

Always placing quality above quantity, their creations have stood out from the crowd. Side-stepping the obvious, releases like 'Helsinki Scorchin', the ethereal 'Suru' and the electro-twisted 'Elektra' have all taken individual paths, but each one bears the Super8 & Tab hallmarks; heart-lifting melody, a widescreen warmth of sound, solid groove and intricate, unrushed production values. Super8 & Tab's time is now; the 'Empire' is upon us.

We would like to invite you to celebrate Finland's most successful trance act's career highlight. Joined by their favorite DJ's at the home of so many unforgettable experiences, this night will be one of this year's most uplifting clubbing events.

SUPER8 & TAB - EMPIRE - ALBUM RELEASE EVENT
STORIES IN TRANCE, PART I

Every week, we'll be drawing classic Super8 & Tab releases from the drawer and ask the boys to tell a few memories regarding the tracks. Here are the first two ones.

SUPER8 & TAB - FIRST AID

"This was where it all started. We were working in the same studio, but in different rooms and releasing music on the same label, Anjunabeats. So we thought why not to try to do a collabration. First Aid showed us a direction what Super8 & Tab sound was going to be: uplifting, melodic and still driving."
- Super8 & Tab

It’s no surprise that this collaboration has yielded yet another future anthem for Anjunabeats.
- M8 Mag – June 2005

Another pumping anthem and its accompanying eupho-riff (what else?). Well produced and anthemic to the max.
- Update Mag

SUPER8 & TAB - NEEDS TO FEEL (Wippenberg remix)

"We had Ben Lost in studio doing vocals for Won´t Sleep Tonight and after we had finished recordings he asked if there's anything else. We played him a demo version of Needs To Feel and he felt it right away. It was ten minutes later we had written and recorded Ben's vocals for the track. Later we got a demo version of remix from Wippenberg and we were blown away. Needs To Feel spent 10 weeks in Beatport's Progressive House Chart Top10 and Paul Van Dyk is still playing it every now and then and it still sounds really fresh."
- Super8 & Tab

- With its operatic vocal, churchy breakdown, melodic bleeps and
overall poppy-ish vibe, ‘Need To Feel’ joins the dot between classical and
dancey pop. On the flip Wippenberg delivers an inspired reinterpretation
that moves towards electro.

- Update Mag

More from the ever impressive label.
Finnish duo Super8 & Tab’s latest banger ‘Needs To Feel’ has a dreamy vocal, plucked riffs, juicy bassline, lush, warm pads and soaring breakdown kicks. Voila! You too will have ‘Needs To Feel’.

-Mixmag 4/5

SUPER8 & TAB - EMPIRE - ALBUM RELEASE EVENT
STORIES IN TRANCE, PART II

8e0d4617602dcdb8b9ba76e3aeea8c50.png

SUPER8 & TAB - DELUSION

"After releasing Elektra we were playing around with ideas and suddenly had this riff in our hands. It took us some time to figure out which style would be most suitable for it. Because of the previous release, Elektra, we ended up doing something a bit faster. The track was already finished, but we felt something was still missing. Alyna did the choir harmonies for Elektra so we thought we should bring her in again. Because the track was almost finished there wasn't too much room left for full vocals, but all the bits and pieces we used lifted Delusion to a new level.
The leftovers of the vocals were later used as an inspiration for one of the tracks on Empire album."
- Super8 & Tab

Andy Moor – “Ronski Speed and Sun Decade mixes are great!”
Sander Van Doorn – “Like the Ronski Speed Remix.”
Bart Claessen - "Good remix, tight production!"
Ali Wilson – “Loving the Ronski Remix”
Mat Zo - 10/10 trance has been loosing its touch lately and this release shows its still got it!

"The original is [...] combining all the quality you’d come to expect from a Super8 & Tab production. A subtle yet driving bassline anchors the track, with jaunty synths adding energy, and a catchy melody and angelic vocal samples adding the euphoric edge without being overbearing."
- Data Transmission

SUPER8 & TAB - SURU

"As many of our tracks, Suru also starts with the main riff. The track was written in the middle of the night in January, the coldest month of the year. It's really emotional and to make it more unique and groovier we gave it a bit of shuffle treatment. Probably that's why it can stand the test of time and people seem to like it a lot as we still get requests to play it almost on every gig."
- Super8 & Tab

- Evidently ‘Suru’ is one of, if not the tent-pole release of Anjunabeats’ summer. Already a big forum star (thanks to the ‘Anjuna Vol 5’ album), the authentic beauty of the original’s harmonies, strings and whopping lead-line is beyond question.
- DJMag 5/5

- These two are among the most reliable talent out there when it comes to knocking inspired uplifting trancers. Once again it’s all in the chord progression and ‘Suru’ doesn’t disappoint on this account.

"Every artist has those magic moments in their career and we think this is one of ours. At the time prog-trance was getting more popular than ever so we wanted to have our share of that experiment too. Goal was to write uplifting prog-trance and result was Helsinki Scorchin'."

LUMINARY - AMSTERDAM (SUPER8 & TAB REMIX)

"We were honored to remix one of the best vocals in trance for Anjunabeats 100 compilation. Smith and Pledger did huge remix of Amsterdam before, but it never really suited to our dj sets so we crafted a version we were able to fit into our sets."

SUPER8 & TAB - EMPIRE

"It’s a rare and wonderful thing to be blown away by an album on first listen. And that’s exactly what Super8 & Tab’s debut artist album does."
-Mixmag

"After releasing several club tracks we decided to give a try to do Super8 & Tab artist album. We never thought it would as long and hard project as it turned out to be but we are really happy with the result.

Rather than just aiming for the dancefloor, we’ve tried to create an album that will work in a range of situations and draw on many different emotions. And hopefully one that will last for many years.

For us, the exciting thing was that this project allowed us to push ourselves as artists and try things we had never done before.
The product of our years working together, ‘Empire’ also sees us move into proper songs for the first time - as well as some more downtempo arrangement. Working with Jan Burton was an inspiring experience.  Betsie Larkin, Julie Thompson and Alyna also feature across the album and each one adds their own individual vocal style to our sound.

Whatever track we were working on, we tried to stay true to the values that have always driven us - strong arrangements, emotional music, a warm sound and quality production."

EMPIRE ALBUM LAUNCH EVENT - The Gallery, Ministry of Sound, London, UK

"We have been playing at The Gallery now every two-three months for the past 3 years.

This time we were celebrating the release of our debut artist album "Empire" with an official launch party at Ministry of Sound, London held on September 24th.

Kyau & Albert, Stoneface & Terminal and W&W shared the main room with us making the event easily the best one so far!

Before our 90min headline set we had a chance to meet our fans from all over the world while we signed copies of our album with Alyna and Julie Thompson. During the set we played several tracks from the album and tested club mixes like 'Perfect Day' and 'My Enemy'.

Next album launch will be in Moscow and some weeks after in our home town Helsinki. It's been over 6 months since we played in Finland last time so we are really looking forward to this one!

"There are too many good memories of Super8 & Tab to pick just one. Countless Sunday mornings at Illusions with Tab in the late 90s, producing Aalto's 'Rush' remix together with Super8, memorable gigs at Hallmark, Laserpoint and Labyrinth with both, rocking it finnish style at Menno de Jong's beach party in Holland or blowing the roof off with many of their singles...

I am simply super happy for the well deserved success of this duo and releasing a debut album is a precious milestone on any recording artists career. And I think we've only seen the beginning of this success story."

"Finnish trance scene has seen its ups and downs during the past 10 years, but there's been one duo which has been stable and solid all these years. I have lots of memories from the legendary Illusions afterparties as well as early Hallmark events where Tab was already gaining lots of attention and after Helsinki Scorchin' was released it felt like all eyes turned at the freshly formed duo.

I've happily noticed how years of hard work has paid off and they've now got a debut album in the their hands praised with rave reviews. It's been a great priviledge to get to know and work with guys this determined yet super nice and I can't wait to get to the official celebrations of the new album!"
