Trance legend and Armada Music owner Armin van Buuren has officially released A state of trance foreverr in its entirety. While nearly all of the songs were released prior to the full album’s release, “Sonata,” “For All Time” and “Lost In Space” are freshly revealed inclusions that had never been available for full listening before. .
The album title is a reference to Armin van Buuren’s radio show – sometimes performed live in front of an audience – which has been running since 2001. It is an extensive electronic mix featuring all kinds of music from various artists, but usually includes music trance as that is the staple that fans have come to expect. ASOT had its 1000th show in September 2020, where over 50 million people attended the event. This reality gives a deeper view of the scale that Armin and the musical series have on the world.
Sander van Doorn, Rank 1, Paul Oakenfold, Aly & Fila, Push, Jorn van Deynhoven, Giuseppe Ottaviani and Susana, are some of the album’s signature collaborations, the 12 tracks brimming with quality nature and keeping the relevant genre because it also pushes it forward.
Here’s what Armin van Buuren had to share about it:
“I started A State Of Trance to share the music I love with people around the world, and I’m so proud that it has grown into a community of its own for everyone who loves Trance music ”, says Armin van Buuren. “A State Of Trance has not only allowed me to stay in touch with my fans and share my own music, but also to highlight established and emerging artists that I admire. For ASOT1000 I wanted to do something special. So I decided to make a collaboration album with some of my favorite artists and sat down with them to create some trance tracks that will last at least a thousand episodes for the fans. We put a lot of love into these records and hope you enjoy listening to them, especially as there will be more albums to come in the ‘A State Of Trance FOREVER’ series. Each track, from 123 bpm to a serious rise, will also be a big part of my next sets. So are you ready to go into a trance state?! “
