Very few names are so important and have such a great legacy like Armin van Buuren, who has been incredibly able to remain on top of the industry throughout his incredible career, releasing several timeless pieces of music and delivering countless memorable shows along the way. He is also the owner of one of the most influential labels in the scene, Armada, which celebrates an amazing milestone today. The release of Armin van Buuren’s new single ‘Stickup’ being the 1,500th release from this imprint.
‘Stickup’ has been highly anticipated by fans since Armin premiered this retro trance inspired tune at A State Of Trance 900. This is truly a track worthy of such an amazing milestone. Driven by a rave inspired melody which immediately captures your attention, the track evolves and builds tension by combining minimal elements to wide festival sounds, making it stand out as a unique production whilst also working perfectly as a festival banger. The drop is also perfectly produced, combining a thick driving bassline groove with a catchy vocal chop and clean percussion sounds.
Armin van Buuren has been creating a buzz lately after his tremendous 7.5-hour performance at Untold Festival in Romania. The set was initially intended to last 8 hours but had to be cut short due to the rain. With this recent performance adding to the already spectacular sets he delivered at Tomorrowland in July, Armin is no doubt showing he has no intention to slow down despite being in the game for so long.
