When we talk about years that laid the groundwork for Dance music to go worldwide, 2012 certainly has to be the prime contender. Back then, electronic music was dominated by hit tracks like Hardwell‘s ‘Spaceman’ and Sebastian Ingrosso & Tommy Trash‘s ‘Reload’ feat. John Martin. 2012 was also the year when A State of Trance series celebrated its 550th episode. That episode saw Armin van Buuren showcase ‘Invasion’, produced by Dutch DJ and production duo W&W, as the ASOT anthem. ‘Invasion’ combines the best of W&Ws big room sounds and merged it with melodic trance to create a perfect main stage anthem.
A State of Trance also recently celebrated its 900th episode with a massive festival in Utrecht, headlined by Armin van Buuren, Cosmic Gate kicking off their 20-year anniversary tour, Above & Beyond returning to ASOT after 8 years, MarLo with a banging Tech-Energy set and Psy-Trance ambassadors Vini Vici. The aftermovie released just yesterday gives you a great summary of a Trance filled night and we cannot wait for the next edition in 2020 which will be the last step before reaching episode 1000 in 2021.
Get nostalgic and check out ‘Invasion’ below.
