Armin Van Burren
The legendary DJ from Leiden, Netherlands began his journey by hosting his own weekly radio show called “A State of Trance” in 2001 and since has been hailed as one of the pioneers of trance music.
There is no debate as to how integral Armin Van Buuren has been in solidifying trance music’s place in the mainstream pop culture. Van Buuren had been ranked No. 1 DJ by DJ Mag a record five times, four times in a row. The Dutch has been largely instrumental in the rise of electronic music and is rightly hailed as one of the most legendary DJs in the world.
In 2014, he was nominated for a Grammy for his single “This Is What It Feels Like” featuring Trevor Guthrie, making him only the 4th ever trance artist to be nominated for a Grammy.
