Revo Radar: Armin Van Buuren

If playing a record breaking twelve and a half hour long set doesn’t prove his legacy, I don’t know what would. Dutch powerhouse DJ and producer Armin van Buuren is one of the most beloved trance artists. With over 14 years of experience, he’s nothing short of an electronic icon. He has been named number one in DJ Mag Top 100 poll four times in a row, the only DJ in history to do so because… well, he’s just that great.

Since 2001, Armin van Buuren has been hosting his radio show “A State of Trance” (ASOT). Every week listeners are presented with a fresh dose of ASOT; a 2-hour long mash up of new electronic music and remixed goods of by Armin himself. Fans all over the world chit-chat and share thoughts during the broadcast through the website’s forums.

Listen to one ASOT episode and you’ll experience his classic style of built ups and breakdowns. It will leave you no choice but to keep dancing and bobbing your head along with each intricate beat. Aside from his original tracks, who else will you be hearing? Will it be Dash Berlin, Sebastian Brandt, Gareth Emery, or maybe a little bit of Above&Beyond? Waiting for the next song is exciting as the transitions are smooth and effortless. It’s no wonder why he can churn out these amazing set lists week after week.

Watch Armin van Buuren perform live and you can feel the love in the air between him and his fans. You’ll find yourself surrounded by fellow trance lovers and forgetting any life problems for a moment. It’s almost like flying through a musical journey with the soft melodies of trance. Sounds kind of weird, but it’s actually quite therapeutic if you ask me.

Armin van Buuren is currently touring the world, per usual. His next stop will be in Las Vegas for Electric Daisy Carnival! It’s not his first EDC appearance, as Armin is known to be a crowd favorite.

He recently announced a new album in the works but until that glorious day arrives, you can get a weekly fix of his music at his website.
