While many people are finding it hard to cope with the newly-required social distancing, some of our favorite artists are conveniently using this time to lock themselves up in their studios and release new music. Armada Music for instance, has now put together all the remixes from Armin van Buuren latest record, Balance, and each song is as good as its original version.
The compilation has 87 tracks. So, if your country is in lockdown, you can just hit play and listen to Armin’s remixes for almost 5 hours straight. Pretty good if you have to stay home and avoid going out for a couple of days (or weeks), right?
Some of the records featured in the compilation are ‘Mr. Navigator’ (Steve Aoki’s ‘i Am the Captain Now’ Remix), ‘Unlove You’ (feat. Ne-Yo) [Nicky Romero Remix], ‘Wild Wild Son’ (feat. Sam Martin) [Deorro & Reece Low Remix], ‘Million Voices’ (Blasterjaxx Remix) and ‘Therapy’ (feat. James Newman) [Leo Reyes Remix]. Certainly, each DJ adds an original, refreshing touch to the songs, but of course, Armin’s trademark style is always strong.
Armin van Buuren was supposed to play last weekend at Ultra Miami, bringing up his exclusive show A State Of Trance 950. Unfortunately, because of the current Covid-19 outbreak , Ultra Music Festival and all events happening during Miami Music Week have been cancelled or postponed until further notice.
However, this period of isolation doesn’t have to be that bad. Some artists are using this time to find inspiration and look after their loved ones. Others are using the perks of social media to run virtual festivals and live DJ sets from their official account. And other artists are even preparing to play the longest DJ set ever in an unprecedented event!
