Truly, one of the finest acts in Trance history. Oliver Smith & Mark Pledger made a huge impression in what seems like such a short time they worked together. I believe I first heard them via their remix of Firewall - Sincere. It really opened the door to a whole new kind of Trance for me. Sure, I'd heard Above & Beyond, but there was something different about this duo.

Ollie & Mark's work seemed more pure and such beauty was crafted in everything they wrote. With Smith & Pledger, to me, it seemed like they made music because they loved to, and were inspired, not just because they could. I think you can hear that in many of their songs, choice examples being the "I'm Not Fooled" remix, their remix of "No One On Earth" and what about the stunning "The Unknown"? Of course, I'm only touching on a handful of their work, but honestly. With these guys, you need to hear it all.

It's strange to think they were only around for four years before they split. And with today's Trance going the way it is, I think we need them back.

My respect goes out to these guys in a big way. Their tunes always seem to be at the top of my list. It's harder than you think to please me as far as Trance music is concerned! But these guys do it everytime. Their form of Trance is just so beautiful and dreamy. I'll always be greatful for their remix of Firewall's "Sincere" in particular. They're good at originals too. "Northern Lights" and "White" are both beauties. They may well be the best artist on Anjunabeats at the moment. It's almost as if they should be running the show instead of Above & Beyond!
