Every year the world’s #1 DJ, Armin van Buuren, delivers his highly anticipated and genre-defining A State Of Trance series. The latest 2013 edition features some surprising collaborations, including the track everyone’s been talking about, D# Fat, with powerhouse duo W&W. Finally released, this ruthless track is their first work together and it really combines the best of their talents. D# Fat fuses W&W’s dark and techy elements with Armin’s epic Gaia-esque breakdowns; it really helps get the second disc, In The Club, going. Download this big room banger here off Beatport.
The thirty-three track A State Of Trance 2013 compilation also features Armin’s chilled out tune with rising star Arty, Nehalennia. Featured in the first disc, On The Beach, this graceful trancer has some very enchanting melodies in its breakdown; its title Nehalennia comes from the name of a motherly, Germanic goddess. Another one of the major stand out tracks on the compilation is Skylarking by one of the leading trance pioneers, BT. This highly progressive track is nearly eleven minutes long and stands as a prime example of how the legendary producer continues to breathe creativity into the genre. Another massive track we’re all looking forward to the release of is BOOM by MaRLo. Get the full compilation here off iTunes.
