Λίγες μέρες έμειναν μέχρι την ημέρα που θα προσγειωθεί στην Αθήνα ξανά ο Armin Van Buuren. Ο Ολλανδός trance producer και dj έρχεται στη χώρα μας για ένα και μοναδικό dj set στο club Venue αυτό το Σάββατο 7 Φεβρουαρίου 2009! Απ΄όσο γνωρίζω σχεδόν όλα τα τραπέζια του Venue έχουν κρατηθεί εδώ και αρκετές μέρες, αλλά δε χάνετε τίποτα να δοκιμάσετε με ένα τηλέφωνο στο 210 3411410!
Υπενθυμίζω ότι ο Armin τα τελευταία χρόνια βρίσκεται σταθερά στους Top 100 DJs, ενώ ψηφίστηκε No 1 DJ στο poll του DJ Magazine το 2008! Ακολουθεί σύντομο βιογραφικό του…
Armin van Buuren pursued his career as a professional musician despite the promise of a career in law in his native country, where he completed his law degree in 2004. Armin started working as a DJ in a local night club called Nexus, finished high school in 1995 and went on to university to study law. Meanwhile, he moved his studio equipment from his bedroom to a “real” studio.
The first tracks he produced in his new studio were, among others, tracks like “Touch Me” and “Communication”. Armin van Buuren has been quoted as saying, “Don΄t be a prisoner of your own style”. He has described his musical style as “liberating, euphoric, uplifting, melodic and energetic”.
He hosts a weekly radio show A State of Trance, which mostly consist of trance and other genres. The show completed its 350th episode in May 2008, running for over 7 years.
In October 2002, van Buuren was voted Number 5 in the DJ Magazine 100 top DJs. The following year, he jumped up to the #3 spot, and held 3rd place for the next 3 years. His work left him at the #2 spot, just below Paul van Dyk in the 2006 polls, and in 2007 Armin reached Number 1, heading the 2007 DJ Mag Top 100. He was voted number 1 again in 2008.
