No matter which phase of electronic music listening you are at, there will always be respect for Armin van Buuren. Whether you like techno, house, minimal or trance, there’s a special place for this DJ/producer that undoubtedly had a big role in spreading the love for electronic music all around the world.

On his latest A State Of Trance radio emission aired on Friday, Armin made a very special announcement for all of his fans: a new GAIA album is in the works, with fresh new music and a tour coming up soon. GAIA is Armin’s side project, along with dutch producer Benno de Goeij. Though they mostly focus on Trance, Armin has disclosed that this upcoming production will also feature some techno! More details are yet to be revealed, but we are already getting excited by the news.

While we wait for the new GAIA album, you can listen to ASOT 882 below and indulge yourself with Armin’s best tracks and favorite songs from artists such as Vini Vici, Ruben de Ronde, Alex M.O.R.P.H, Gareth Emery and more.
