ASOT 736 – A State of Trance Episode 736
It’s another track off Armin van Buuren’s newest artist album ‘Embrace’ that opened up today’s live show! The beautiful track entitled ‘Hands to Heaven’ featuring Rock Mafia made its world premiere on this episode of ASOT 736. It wasn’t the only track from the new album to be debuted, as the track ‘Embargo’ featuring Cosmic Gate was also premiered and took this week’s Tune of the Week. It was a jam packed episode today with some of the hottest tracks out there at the moment, from such artists as Mark Sixma & Emma Hewitt, Axis, and even one of my all-time favorites from BT.
What a week it has been for Armin! This past weekend he picked up a bunch of awards including the award for Greatest Man of 2015 at the JFK Magazine awards. The first single off the album Embrace, ‘Another You’ featuring Mr Probz, was certified triple Platinum. And last but certainly not least, he was awarded and named the Highest Trance DJ at #4 on DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs poll. I’d say it has been a pretty successful week for Armin!
As you can see ‘Embrace’ is doing extremely well already! The track ‘Strong Ones’ took this week’s Future Favorite, after receiving the majority of the votes from last week’s show. Armin announced the date of his album release party on October 28th, 2015 and you’re invited! If you’re interested, grab your tickets here!
The milestone show for ASOT750 in the Netherlands is only 14 weeks away! Who’s counting? I think everyone is! Armin announced a new competition for music producers to have their track featured as the anthem for ASOT750. So if you’re an up-and-coming music producer, get your hands on this amazing opportunity! You can get more information from the ASOT website.
Luke Terry’s ‘Hyperborea’ started off the second hour of the show, while Chapter XJ’s ‘No Fear’ spooked things up for Halloween! Towards the end of the show there was yet another world premiere with Stargazers & Kate Louise Smith in ‘Black Diamond.’ Armin then closed ASOT736 with Re-Ward’s remix of ‘Take Me Away’ by 4 Strings, as the ASOT Radio Classic.
I hope you’re as excited as I am for everything ASOT coming up! Thank you so much for reading! If you want to catch next week’s live show, tune in Thursday at 2pm EST/11AM PST on DI Radio.
