There are few, if any names, in the EDM world that carry as much weight with them as Armin van Buuren. Ranked the World’s No. 1 DJ by DJ Magazine in their annual Top 100 DJs fan poll a record of five times, his list of achievements and accolades is truly astonishing.
With a career spanning 20 years, the GRAMMY®-nominated artist has become a name that’s synonymous with excellence in dance music and the admiration and respect that both his peers, and the community have for him is apparent everywhere he goes.
It’s not very often that you get the chance to sit down for an exclusive interview with a true icon, so imagine my excitement when I was offered the chance to go one on one with the legendary producer. Doing a press day in NYC for his new track “Another You,” which features the soulful vocals of Mr. Probz, Armin was more than happy to open up to me about his truly extraordinary career, his love of trance and how exactly he prepares for those 12 hour marathon sets that he’s famous for.
