Biography – Armin Van Buuren
Armin van Buuren is a happy man, and with good reason. Holding firm at Number 3 in the prestigious public-voted DJ Top 100, he's making the transition from talented young upstart to leading light in the echelons of trance – and beyond. 2005 has brought two new significant awards (Best Radio Show, and Best Compilation for A State of Trance 2004 at the Miami Winter Music Conference Awards), and a stunning new artist album, Shivers, showcasing his debut as a songwriter.
After four years of fronting his own weekly radio show, A State Of Trance, Armin signed a deal with The Radio Department (also home to John Digweed and Carl Cox's shows) to distribute it internationally. Now online and on fm stations, his website (www.arminvanbuuren.com) details who is already broadcasting it – and the list is still growing. "There's more new listeners because more people can access it now. I think trance is a universal experience; it's one of the first musical genres that really showed its power through the internet, and I wouldn't be where I am now if it wasn't for downloads!"
Post-album, Armin says he'll be "taking it easy for a bit". Taking it easy Armin-style includes touring America (where he has a huge following) with Paul Oakenfold, who will then join Armin at his Armada night in Ibiza, a tour to promote Shivers, a huge event at the end of 2005 in Holland, and of course, the radio show, as well as focusing on new songs "when I get the time."
"This is just what I want," says Armin. "It's not love for music, it's a passion, and it goes beyond liking, and beyond a hobby, it's about a way of living. Music is essential for my life".
