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.
So because I haven’t been bothered to put together the video footage from ASOT600 in KL and the fact my blog was running a little dry, I decided to recap some of my favourite songs from ASOT600 so far. There’s only one more week til the celebrations finish in Den Bosch (damn you Hanna for actually going, so jealous).
While my experience of ASOT 600 in KL had been nothing short of phenomenal, I’ll save my thoughts there for another post once I can get the videos ready.
In the meantime, here are my favourite tracks so far, so many bangers and so many IDs!
At first when I heard this song I thought it was quite cheesy and too poppy, but I found it grew on me and despite its cheesiness, I love it. Love the bassline and the drum overlay of the original. Hope you enjoy and see you at Armin Only in NYE 😉
Another Friday has passed and that means another episode of A State Of Trance, this time 425. I’ve listened to this episode multiple times since downloading it on Friday morning and I think it’s magnificent. Heaps of vocal type tracks and a couple which remind me of Godskicthen last week (oh how I wish it was still October 4). My favourites this week are Waiting by Dash Berlin ft. Emma Hewitt, Novastar and Ferry Corsten’s Because, BT Ft. Jes’ Every other way. Also loving Cosmic Gate’s Under your spell, Anjunabeach by Above and Beyond Garden State by DJ Eco ft. Marcie and a few more. Almost the whole list this week is incredible. It also appears that there is a book by Armin, recently translated from Dutch, someone please buy it for me, haha.

Without overshadowing another ASOT day, another set which is a MUST DOWNLOAD is Myon and Shane 54’s Coldharbour Day set. These guys produced a wicked set cramming over 70 tracks in just over an hour, don’t know how they do it but it sounds like one giant mashup and has great tunes everywhere.
