One of the most paradigmatic brands in the entire electronic music scene is Dutch DJ and producer Armin van Buuren‘s A State Of Trance [ASOT]. Best known for its annual standalone shows, stage takeovers and weekly broadcasts, there have also been numerous compilations released that shine a spotlight on the latest and greatest trance tracks. On Friday, May 3, van Buuren gifted fans with the 16th edition of the yearly anthology, A State Of Trance 2019.
Comprised of 40 trance-progressive bangers, ASOT 2019 is split into two sides that each offer up their own unique vibe.
Mix 1 is titled On The Beach and features tracks that stay true to Armin’s trance sound. The inspiriting curation brings you sounds from artists such as Maor Levi, Super8 & Tab, Ruben de Ronde and, of course, Armin van Buuren himself.
Mix 2, In The Club, transitions over to the vibrant pulses of trance’s trending club hits and is overall a bit more mainstage-ready. It is here that listeners can enjoy Armin’s classic club sound, as well as hit singles from artists like Rub!k, Aly & Fila and Feenixpawl.
All in all, this compendium is a testament to the fact that the trance ecosystem is flourishing not only with established names, but also new and rising stars.
