Armin van Buuren answers fan questions through asQme

Undoubtedly one of the most influential names in dance music today, Armin van Buuren is undergoing one of the most life-changing and daring years of his career to date. Releasing his latest album ‘Embrace’, just over a year ago, the Dutch pioneer took upon the challenge of incorporating new elements into his music and live shows around the globe.
