Free Download: ASOT 610 - Armin van Buuren

Armin had the whole Trance Family talking this afternoon with yet another memorable episode of A State of Trance. After last week's Who's Afraid of 138 special we weren't expecting to hear so much uplifting in this week's broadcast but Armin once again impressed us to say the least. Two tracks into it AvB took the pleasure of premiering the title track of his upcoming world tour "Intense," featuring the sharp vocals of Miri Ben-Ari. Other highlights for me were the great mashup of Arctic Moon's remix of "Coming Home" vs. One Republic and of course Ferry Corsten's most hyped recent track that we've been hearing ever since POP New Year's Eve: "Fuck The Bullshit." Overall this week was one of the more balanced mixes we've heard recently from Armin so we're excited what he'll be doing with his immense skills on the upcoming tour.

Today marked a great step back for Trance music on the international stage as Armin van Buuren once again tested the tides for a response to his Who's Afraid of 138 experiment in Den Bosch. Although I must concede that ASOT609 wasn't trending as furiously as usual on Twitter, the response to today's episode was tremendous nonetheless. Putting the other top jocks to shame by tossing out the pop-Electro bangers and lulling us in A State of Trance, Armin reminded us yet again of what we've been missing here across the pond. Over the course of two hours of enigmatic melodies straddling the divides between pure and chopped-up, dark and uplifting, the only defining structure to be heard was "138+ or bust!" Today the TranceFamily can happily say the world is more than ready for uplifting to once again dominate the mainstage. Considering the clever marketing that's been going into WAO138 lately, we can't rule out a tour either. Keep crossing your fingers.

I usually get sad listening to these on the live stream, but when I download them I'll have them on repeat for weeks. There were just too many sets to write about this time around, but I can personally recommend Omnia, Arctic Moon, Aly & Fila, Solarstone, and Kearney's sets which were all out of this world. There's a lot of music new, old, and unidentified to be discovered in these archives so just click and download them all!

Free Download: Armin @ ASOT 600 Den Bosch (Who's Afraid of 138)

Last night was a monumental night for Trance music's revival to the world stage. What Armin van Buuren described as an "experiment" turned out to be the most popular stage other than the mainstage for ASOT 600's final show in The Netherlands. I know I for one am tired of false branding and marketing for Trance music especially in the United States, where some marketing team obviously decided it best to water it down to the point of Electro House bangers and just call it the same thing. But I felt no sort of resentment last night when Armin took to the stage, only pure euphoria topped off with the all-encompassing numbness uplifting Trance brings. This is Armin van Buuren at his very best, back to his roots, ready to drive a 140 set home with an iron hammer - and I hope you're ready.

Armin just held down the Den Bosch mainstage energy like a boss, employing his trademark tight transitions that seemed even more on point today. I wasn't personally a huge fan of this tracklist, it seems to me that he played mostly the same "Top-40" Electro-Trance tunes that we've heard since the fall but everyone online seemed to enjoy it. There were however a few surprises in there from his Intense new album that make the mix worthwhile so I uploaded it for you guys. Be sure to catch his set from the "Who's Afraid of 138" stage when we put it up, I'm sure Armin has a lot in store for us!
