Armin van Buuren

Armin van Buuren, legendary trance DJ and Producer, label head of Armada</strong, and 5 time winning No.1 DJ in the world, has just announced that he’ll be landing his A State of Trance experience in Australia. His stops will include Melbourne and Sydney this weekend!

Armin will be headlining Istoria‘s event at Melbourne’s Festival Hall this Friday and then will play at Sydney Showgroundon Saturday for his ASOT show that will be centered around the theme “Be In The Moment”! This is sure to be a monumental event for all trance fans…especially considering how big the movement is in Australia!

With this announcement, Armin has also revealed that his project Gaia will be moving towards a Live Act and will move away from pure DJing. Armin says that duo has 20-30 new tracks ready for their fans and in an interview with The Trance Project he says: “With Gaia, I can explore of my darkside”.

“I’m actually working on it as we speak. We’re setting up to be more of a live act and move away a bit from the DJing which I do as Armin van Buuren, but Gaia is more of a live act. It just takes a lot of time, with producing all these singles, doing the radio show every week, touring the world, and being a father and husband as well, it’s just hard to find time. We do have about twenty to thirty songs ready to go, we just need to bundle them and we need to get our heads around what we’re going to name it and what theme is going to be. I’m not worried about the music, I’m more worried about how we’re going to interpret the new sound into a stage theme. With Gaia, I have more creative freedom in the sense that I want to go more underground, more into that Tech sound, rather than the Armin van Buuren sound which is obviously more uplifting and melodic. With Gaia, I can explore more of my darkside, if you will, haha.”
