Video: “Together” by Armin Van Buuren

Armin van Buuren is currently on his A State of Trance Festival tour and has just released the music video for the official ASOT Festival tour anthem. The music video features a ton of footage from Armin’s current tour and definitely highlights the insanity that is A State of Trance.

Currently, Armin is gearing up for ASOT Episode #700, which will be hosted in Sydney, Australia on February 6th and Melbourne, Australia on February 7th. If you can’t make it, the show will also be broadcasted on the A State of Trance Radio Show.

Review: Armin Van Buuren @ Pier 94, NYC (Dec. 29)

AVB-Pier94-2014_1229_231539-2614_DVS

Pacha NYC and RPM Presents worked together to bring an unreal week to NYC that they called #BIGWEEKNYC. This jam packed week consisted of major headlining acts such as Armin Van Buuren, Kaskade, Disclosure, Martin Garrix, and Carnage. Though most of the events were held at Pier 94 in Midtown West, there were also a few events being held at Pier 36 like Martin Garrix and Kaskade. The King of Trance definitely had a big name to live up to and brought some friends along: Andrew Rayel, Mark Sixma and Jochen Miller also shared the stage with the legendary producer.

Another amazing show will compliment RPM Presents’ #BigWeekNYC. Armin Van Buuren will be supported by Andrew Rayel, Jochen Miller, and Mark Sixma. For those who don’t know, Armin Van Buuren has been promoting Andrew Rayel’s talents and his classical sounds all year. Not only are you graced with the King of Trance himself but also by his protégé.

Thanks to Doppler Labs, we’ll also be testing out their DUBS Acoustic Filters for the event. If you’re unfamiliar with their product, they specialize in high quality acoustic filters. With your average earplugs, you have to worry about comfort, appearance, and performance. DUBS has taken all that into consideration and have guaranteed to exceed expectations. We’ll let you know how they perform at a high-energy setting like an Armin Van Buuren concert. As always, we’ll include some tracks by the scheduled performers for you to listen to below:

“Ping Pong (Dani Deahl Remix)” by Armin van Buuren

Any interesting release by Armada that may cause some controversy within the #TranceFamily. Regardless, Dani Deahl crushes this remix. Using the ping pong elements from Armin Van Buuren’s original track, she pitches the drop all around and adds trap elements to her remix. The main melody is still intact in a few areas like the build, which lets the listener know that this is, in fact, a “Ping Pong” remix.

Event: “Armin Only: Intense World Tour” [April 11th-Madison Square Garden,NYC]

In just under a month Armin Van Burren will bring the ‘Armin Only: Intense’ tour to the United States. The first stop being Madison Square Garden in New York. Just a year ago he packed this same venue with Trance fans from all over the world for his ‘A State Of Trance 600′ show featuring W&W, Ferry Corsten, Markus Schulz, and Alex M.O.R.P.H. This year Armin is returning to the worlds most famous arena, but he is doing things very different for this massive live event that is ‘Armin Only’. What sets this show apart from anything you have seen before is that it includes a 6 hour set from Armin, live vocalists, a live band, trampolinists, and many other incredible surprises that will be used in the making of this incredible night, in one of the greatest cities in the world. Back in December we attended a press event/fan meet-and-greet event for this tour at a wine bar in Long Island City, NY. We had the opportunity to listen to Armin describe to a small group of 150 of his dedicated fans, and members of the media about why this tour so special compared to the countless number of shows he has done in the past. Even after he had been doing press for the previous 12 hours you could still just see the excitement in his face when talking about ‘Armin Only’ and how excited he is to bring this show to New York. We also had the chance to talk to Sander Reneman (Armin’s Tour Manager/Creative Director of Armin Only) who was equally as excited to see this production that they spent many long hours on finally come to fruition. In an industry where production has become almost as important as the music I believe that we will see “Armin Only” classified as one of the best to hit NYC in 2014. Tickets are still available for “Armin Only” at MSG, we highly recommend that you grab yours now to secure your spot for this incredible night!

“Enjoy The Ride (The Remixes)” by Krewella

Krewella is out with 2 remixes to their original track “Enjoy The Ride.” Armin Van Buuren and Vicetone are the names you’ll see on the bill for the official remixes. Armin, of course, never lets anyone down. Armin is able to take a fast paced approach at the trance BPM (134) and kills it with the melody. The melody makes its first appearance mid-build and becomes way more trance-y for the main segment of the track.

On the other hand, Vicetone diverts from their usual methods of having a progressive melody to a more build/drop type feel. I’m not sure how I entirely feel about this move, but I’m sure Vicetone fans will eat up this remix. Definitely something new being brought to the table here.
