Paradiso Artist Spotlight: Super8 & Tab

For all my fans of the trance and progressive sound, we haven't gotten a lot of love on Paradiso artist spotlights so I'm going to put together a couple articles on acts that are absolutely critical to see. I will put this simply:


In a modern scene that's saturated with repeat plays of the same kind of radio sounds, this Finnish duo always delivers. To me, that's one of the most important things when considering whose DJ sets I want to make sure I catch. Super8 & Tab have a delicious sound, and best of all, they own it and they play it. There used to be a time where you could see an artist from the Anjunabeats family and put great faith in the fact that they would represent their label and their sound well, but after recent performances chock-full of trap from Norin & Rad I feel like it's hard to know what you're going to get sometimes, even from artists you've seen before or labels you've grown to admire. Going in to this festival as a very picky attendee it can be hard to decide who you want to see, but among the long list of other artists on this lineup, Super8 & Tab are one of the ones that I know I cannot miss. Take my word for it, put your trance pants on for an hour, and fly away into the summer sky on the wings of Super8 & Tab.
