New York, NY (PRWEB) April 23, 2014
On March 28th, world-renowned DJ, producer and trance icon, Armin van Buuren, released the 2014 edition of his gold-standard compilation series, A State Of Trance 2014 (Armada Music). The release stormed the charts around the world, hitting #1 on the iTunes main charts in Russia, the Netherlands, South Africa, Indonesia and India, and reaching #1 on the iTunes dance charts in Mexico, Brazil and Turkey. The compilation has also reached the "top 5" iTunes positions in the U.S., the UK, Denmark, France and Australia. With 35 tracks over two discs of contrasting styles ('On The Beach’ and ‘In The Club’), the release covers a great deal of musical ground.
The ASOT2014 compilation features several Armin van Buuren tunes including "Eiforya" (pronounced "euphoria," a collaboration with Armada Music recording artist, Andrew Rayel); "Save My Night," a track featured in collaboration with Heineken for the beverage giant's "Dance More, Drink Slow" public awareness campaign; and the just-released Armin van Buuren hit, "Ping Pong." Also included are crowd-proven releases from Markus Schulz, Gareth Emery, Orjan Nilsen, Aly & Fila, Alexander Popov, Protoculture, GAIA and Alex M.O.R.P.H. Jorn van Deynhoven contributed "New Horizons," the ASOT650 anthem.
The ASOT2014 compilation is filled with exclusive, never-before-released material with inspiration drawn from Armin’s two-hour weekly radio show, A State Of Trance (ASOT). The ASOT weekly radioshow has an estimated 20 million listeners tuning-in from 50 countries and is broadcast on more than 60 radio stations worldwide. The ASOT show airs globally via FM/terrestrial, satellite and Internet radio and is one of the most highly regarded and influential radio shows in the world of dance music.
The entire 11-hour show performed at the A State Of Trance stage at Miami's Ultra Music Festival (UMF) on March 30th of this year can be heard via http://www.AStateOfTrance.com. One highlight of the festival was the world premiere of GAIA -- an alter-ego of Armin van Buuren together with his sole production partner, Benno De Goeij -- in their first-ever live performance.
The ASOT tour previously reached destinations as far-flung as Moscow, Amaty, Ekaterinburg, Utrecht, Santiago, Buenos Aires, Kuala Lumpur and Jakarta, and it has welcomed more than 150,000 audience-members.
