Epic. Powerful. Explosive. The Armin van Buuren Remix of the HBO® original series’ "Game of Thrones Theme” (by Ramin Djawadi) is releasing on June 5th, 2015, on Armind (Armada Music).

Already a massive track hungrily embraced by music festival fans whenever Armin drops it on the decks from the mainstage, this cutting-edge remix deserves to be heard over a state-of-the-art soundsystem raining down like acoustic fire from above. Armin van Buuren’s remix is an official remix of the Game of Thrones main title theme.

It’s almost like the crowds are waiting for it. It’s just explosive and really beautiful, especially when combined with the pyrotechnics and other visuals, lighting and effects we do when I play this.”

Hailed by countless media outlets and music writers as one of the all-time best title themes, the original composition features the startlingly gorgeous horns of GRAMMY® and EMMY® nominee, Ramin Djawadi. Evoking the high drama and life-or-death struggles of two ruling families from a fantastical medieval era, the Game of Thrones theme conjures an immediate and universal sense of danger, excitement, lust and mystery. It’s no wonder the theme song has been embraced by everyone from bedroom DJs to the Queen’s royal guards at Buckingham Palace. Ramin Djawadi also composes music for the series.

From the initial stirring percussion of the rapid-fire intro headlong into the booming build and 4/4 beat, the Armin van Buuren remix of the Game of Thrones theme is a thrilling sonic ride that quickens the listener’s heartbeat. When Djawadi’s signature melody enters the track, one envisions the faithful masses, millions-strong, standing in solidarity with faces and arms tilted towards the sky.
