Armin van Buuren

Armin Van Buuren delivers a special edition three hour Essential Mix.

'With the current trend of giving DJ's only one hour slots at big festivals, I was extremely excited to hear Radio 1 wanted me to do a three hour set for a special Essential Mix. It's been a while since I did my last studio mix so I decided to make something special for you, have a proper build up in this one, starting at 125BPM and building up all the way to a whopping who's afraid of 138BPM! There are also many exclusive first plays in this mix.

The first hour is here to warm you up and set the mood for the mix with exclusives by BT & Alexander Popov. The second hour is mostly about my new artist album 'Intense' that was just released on Positiva / Armada Music, including my new single 'This Is What It Feels Like' and my brand new tracks with Richard Bedford, Laura Jansen, Emma Hewitt and many more. You'll also find some exclusive stuff by Orjan Nilsen and Shogun in the 2nd hour.

Hour number 3 is building to a massive climax with some proper banging and uplifting trance with many exclusives, including a new Simon Patterson, ARDI and a brand new Photographer remix. You'll also find some references to some of my favorite classics and movies in the mix'. Armin Van Buuren, May 2013.
