Ever since the EDM takeover began, Armin van Buuren fans have voiced their concerns regarding the trance legend’s new direction. His sound continues to drift further away from trance and has become more reminiscent of big room and progressive house. His fans got even more heated when Armin went B2B with DJ Mag Top 100 winners Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike in their home country of Belgium. The duo has been the dance music community’s punching bag ever since “winning” the title.
Armin posted about the set on Facebook and was instantly met with criticism. Some fans mentioned that they were disappointed with Armin, while others took things to the extreme by stating that this particular move killed trance music altogether. Take a look at some of the top comments below.
Are these fans blowing things out of proportion or does Armin van Buuren deserve the criticism for going B2B with Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike?
