Editors' pick

Armin Van Buuren


Editorial Review

We generally take best band/best DJ polls with a grain of salt, but Dutch trance DJ Armin van Buuren, who has topped DJ magazines prestigious Top 100 DJs survey of readers for three consecutive years, really does have the skills to back it up. His State of Trance radio show/podcast has more than 10 million listeners in 40 countries, who tune in to hear van Buuren effortlessly blend hands-in-the-air trance with tracks that veer into electro and minimal styles. (The show has even spawned multiple mix-CD sets.) His original albums have topped the charts in a number of countries, and his live shows are just as impressive. On New Years Eve 2009, he took 35,000 people on a nine-hour musical journey at the L.A. Coliseum. So what should you expect at Fur? One of the world's top DJs at the top of his game.
