Two very exciting announcements out today for Sydney today which has got me pretty stoked. The first? World’s number 1 DJ Armin van Buuren has announced his Armin Only world tour for his artist album ‘Intense’. The second? World famous beach front bar in Ibiza known for its chill out music and amazing sunsets.
This is definitely a less known tune and to be honest I never knew what it was called until it came up on di.fm and I instantly recognised it. First heard this in 2008 during one of the best nights I’ve ever had, Armin Only 2008 at the Hordern Pavillion.
I still remember the moment it was dropped and seriously chills went down my spine, it’s had that 3am/late night kinda vibe that just really brings you back into it. Continue reading Embrace – Embrace (Ferry Corsten Fix)
So the last days of 2010 went by rather quick, first and foremost a lunch outing with the majority of the crew that did BIT or ISM starting from 2007 (God that was a long time ago) to celebrate their final days of Uni (not me though, because i’m special). It was a nice lunch courtesy of Christine, our course coordinator who’s helped us through hundreds and thousands of emails and queries. It was a a nice gathering and good to see everyone before we all parted ways.
Once back from my trip and having a few days of long away rest and sleep, it was time to be out and about again, firstly, a BBQ at Lily Tran’s house to celebrate Christmas. Nothing better than spending a nice summer afternoon with friends around the BBQ with a drink or ten. No one ended up too drunk and with my fairly okay drink count, I was still quite good.
No summer is complete without a fishing trip of sorts, so early one morning we make the trip up to Clifton for some fishing action. There were quite a few people there already so we couldn’t get prime position, but we pushed on anyway and hoped for some luck. But as you can see from my album title, it was somewhat fail, ended up catching 2.5 fish (one of them was a tiny bream). Nice thing about getting up early is catching the sunrise and I’ve finally done some sunrise photography.
One of the final set of photos for the year was from my younger cousin’s birthday who despite his size, is only 12.
So these photos represent the final days and weeks of my 2010, but it was such a thrill being able to spend the transition into 2011 with an all night party with the number 1 DJ, Armin van Buuren. Such a great event and you really can’t top seeing Armin for 9 hours straight, still remember the climatic countdown with the drummer just hammering away, almost as though he couldn’t keep it up. Small glitch in the countdown but it was one hell of a night. Spent the next few days exploring a bit of Melbourne which was quite fun, but definitely gotta plan another trip down soon.
Well that wraps up 2010, I’m a step closer to getting this blog updated and getting the rest of the photos up.
So it’s almost the end of Winter and I’m seriously craving the warm summer days with the sun shining and just being able to kick back in the outdoors. Summer also means festivals for us Aussies and I really can’t wait to get out and about with the music pumping and not having a thing to worry about.
So what’s with this random post? I came across a tune by Tim Berg (aka Avicii) called Bromance and it’s just hit me with it’s amazing breezy and airy sound. It’s just create this sudden rush of emotion and memories of days and nights out where the only thing that mattered was the music. So below is the song which has inspired this post and my excitement for the summer to come.
The video clip is quite hilarious and I urge you to watch the whole thing til the end, in my opinion though the song’s title and video clip are completely irrelevant to the tune itself.
So really, what I’m looking forward to is Armin Only and SummaFieldDayze for a double dose of Armin Van Buuren over the New Year period.
