"Polly" - Kevin Wild

Would you be happy if your first production got support from Myon & Shane 54, Gareth Emery, Tritonal, and Armin van Buuren on ASOT? Me too. It's quite impressive to find something with such a slick progression like this as an artist's intiial debut onto the scene. While Enhanced Recordings and its subsidary under Tritonal Air Up There are known widely for their vocal and Progressive tracks, this kind of groove is a first for them and I have to say "I can't believe it's not Anjunabeats!" Support the artist and grab the full mix now!

Track of the Day: "ID" - ID [ASOT 600 Aly & Fila Rip]

I had to pick a special track to honor one year of being a part of this wonderful online family that has grown at EDM Lounge, and this one is so special no one seems to know what it is. This track has that classic 140 Trance with an electric melody line that made my jaw drop when I first heard it. I felt immediately that I had heard this before or something like it, that maybe it was a 2013 rework of a classic anthem but I couldn't find anything. Music speaks for itself so just take a listen (and help us ID it). Thank you to all of our followers for a wonderful year in which our family attended EDC NYC/Vegas/Orlando/PR, Camp Bisco, Electric Forest, Coachella, HARD Fest, Nocturnal/Beyond Wonderland, Governors Ball, Veld Festival, Electric Zoo, Ibiza, Electric Adventure, UMF15, POP NYE, and countless other shows throughout the Tri-State and the US! You are the most important part of this family and we love you all!

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.

Free Download: Armin van Buuren @ ASOT 600 Den Bosch (Mainstage)

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!
