Armin van Buuren's Style

Post by Sunlounger » Sat Feb 17, 2018 8:58 am

What do you guys think about Armin van Buuren's style that he is producing the last years? I really have much respect for Armin as a trance legend and also that he keeps on sticking with his love for the ASOT radio show and ASOT events. But the style that he is producing, that POP sound, I don't like it at all! Yes he doesn't have to do it for the money anymore and yes he has meant and still means allot for the Trance scene, but his own productions don't have anything to do with trance music anymore. Except his project with Benno de Goeij, say Gaia is still real trance music.

But for an example, that new track, sex, love & water.. :cry: The club mix is very cheap too in my opinion :whistle: I call it cheap scoring..but probably we would do the same thing..

Let the comments flow.. :happy

I don't like it and it confuses me.
I understand he needs commercial tracks to stay on top, but when you say you're a trance DJ it doesn't feel right.
It's the same feeling I got when seeing him at Vrienden van Amstel. He really didn't belong there and this is were it got wrong with DJ's.
Since he can't sing he needs to do something crazy to be part of the show, like hanging upside down doing basically nothing.

Life is too short, don't stress every day, leave your worries behind, go out and play, life is too short, grasp it in your hand a natural miracle, have fun while you can, life is too short, as precious as gold, its full of surprises, so i am told, life is too short, take it from me have as much fun as you wish, just wait and see, life is too short, people seem to forget, that life is a gift and its free, yes that's it, life is too, you are your own eyes open yourself, and enjoy your own life!

That's exactly what I mean! Those commercial tracks sound like Tiesto's crap that was on the radio for a while, really cheap ass productions! A shame 2 trance legends downgrade themselfs this way, they don't need that, and seartanly not for the money! Just stick to what made you big! They all want more and more, all of that crappy EDM sound we have to deal with the last years! Shame on dance music!
