Last week Slovakia hosted probably its most highlighted Trance event in years, and it’s all thanks to EDMANIA, who invited the „King of Trance” as a headliner. And it doesn’t end up there – Armin van Buuren was also supported by Rodg, Orjan Nilsen, Driftmoon, ReOrder, Major7 and other local Trance DJs, making this journey last not for three, but for stunning 12 hours! Huge experiment for a still young organization, which gave a good result!

Last weekend people from all over the world gathered in the Amsterdam ArenA for a magical “The Best Of Armin Only” experience – two sold-out shows, more than 80 thousands attendants between both days, 2 hours of warm-up, 4 hours of show and countless memories. Not every artist in electronic or Trance music can organize something this big, but seems like for Armin Van Buuren it wasn’t a problem.
Almost everyone has a dream in their lives. Some are simple, some are unreal, but when they come true – you always feel amazing! It was the same with me – even a week before #ASOT810 I didn’t know that I would be there, and even after many days it still feels like a dream – I wouldn’t believe it was real if I didn’t have the photos to prove it.
I will try to describe everything as good as possible, and I hope it can help you too (or at least feed your curiosity).
One week later and still under the spell, after a major trance weekend event, I could barely put myself on tracks this week. The sparkles of an amazing experience still creep under my skin and along my back.
First with Luminosity Trance Gathering on Friday 17th Feb, opening the Gala Trance Weekend in full-mode on, and just before the main event of the weekend, the international indoor festival ASOT800: celebrating 800 radio shows of ‘A State Of Trance’, taking place on Saturday 18th February.
Following his belief in “not to be a prisoner of your own style”, Armin van Buuren is releasing today ‘Old Skool’, a mini album with old school tracks, reworks of the music that made him step into electronic music but… will this trigger a revival or is it just a temporary fad?
We have seen along the years that many DJs have been experimenting with different styles, not always with the same amount of success.
Some artists have built their careers out of experimenting with music, while some others have stayed faithful to their original choice. Truth to be told, the path of producing music is about creativity and innovation.
The advent of daredevil raids towards different genres far beyond the boundaries of the DJ’s regular style, have also given birth to a group of purist fans complaining towards anything that lies beyond traditional or expectable.
At the time Tiësto migrated into EDM and Pulsar gave up on Trance music because the industry was heading somewhere somehow where nobody would follow, we witnessed different approaches to that natural change and dynamism. And change is not a bad thing per se.
