What up Armin? Haven’t heard from you in a while. Oh, you have an epic new remix of Beatport’s #2 song right now? That’s weird….and fucking awesome! Anyways, the king of trance takes on Zedd’s biggest single to date. Big things.
Armin van Buuren’s “A State Of Trance Tour” will start again in Los Angeles on March 17th, and this will be the official anthem for the tour. Bold moves by AVB and huge recognition for W&W for their upcoming release “Invasion.” Basically they are saying, “What’s up world? This is trance. And trance is BACK!” I happen to agree.
For all the trance newbies out there, W&W are top-notch. They are Willem van Hanegem & Ward van der Harst, hail from the Netherlands, and have risen to the top of the Trance world in less than two years…I would say that’s pretty meteoric to me. The crazier part, is you probably had no idea! Anyways, i’ll leave you with a quote from AVB himself about the duo.
“W&W are truly the rising stars of trance. If I have to put my money on somebody, I put it on W&W.” – Armin van Buuren (early 2010)
Looks like AVB is a decent investor.
PREVIEW: W&W – Invasion (ASOT 550 Anthem)
When it’s got AVB’s name on it, it’s probably something special. This is hands down my new favorite trance tune! It is an absolute transcendent song that takes you to all sorts of new places. Armin is the king of trance, and he his making me a believer tonight.
Armin van Buuren Pres. Gaia – J’ai Envie De Toi (Original Mix) - Beatport Link – $$$$$ WOW. THE must have trance track right now.
AVB is king.
For those of you who forgot how good trance can be. This is for you. The Madison, is a Ukrainian producer who has been receiving huge support in the trance community for months now. He is a 23-year-old phenom who is really getting after it with this new unreleased tune.
The Madison – ID (Played by Ost and Meyer on Anjunabeats Worldwide 258)
The Madison – Liquid Sky (Original Mix) - $$$ Supported by AVB…so it will definitely put you in a “State of Trance.” Around the 2min mark, you will understand true trance beauty.
Trance is alive and well. Who is hitting up the Above & Beyond stage at UMF this year? See you there!
