The picture above is of a living deity. His name is Armin van Buuren, and even if you don’t know it, you love him too and his songs were (or still are) your mobile ringtones or alarm songs.
This man has the most successful Radio show on Earth: A State of Trance, which is well on the way to clocking in 500 episodes in early 2011. He has been the world’s number one for 3 years in a row (four hopefully, I already voted on djmag.com, vote if you still haven’t). He releases A State of Trance, Universal Religion, Armind, and his personal albums such as Imagine, and the latest: Mirage. Mirage will be out September 10th.
This man is HUGE, and unlike Tiesto and Paul van Dyk, still has respect among underground electronic music fans, for never compromising the music in order to sell more (which PvD and Tiesto failed in, but Guetta took advantage of to the max – see earlier post on Guetta)
Because I love Armin too much, the sneak-peak will be YouTubes only, not zippyshare links. Maybe later on, after you’ve had a chance to BUY the album, I’ll post the zippy links.
A Trance Masterpiece: Full Focus
This scared me at first, but, the Owl City vocals have been touched by the hand of Armin (I believe the Mirage version will be slightly different)
Like Sophie Ellis Bextor?
