AVB and ASOT, Thursday night in Phuket, EDM paradise.John K.
Van Buuren rose to fame with his A State of Trance weekly radio show, a show which has sparked an interest in trance music all around the world.
Armin has had an illustrious career decorated with a variety of accolades and awards. AVB was the first ever trance artist in the history of Dutch music to enter the Dutch album chart at No. 1, thanks to his 2008 studio album Imagine. In the United States, Armin holds the Billboard Dance/Electronic Albums chart record for most entries.
Armin is a favourite at DJ Magazine, where he has been voted the World No. 1 DJ in their annual Top 100 DJ’s fan poll an astonishing five times, four years in a row.
He has been making music since he was a 14 year old boy drawing his inspiration from French electronic music composer Jean Michael Jarre. Armin van Buuren’s first major breakthrough came in 1995 with a Eurodance track titled “Blue Fear” which made it onto the UK Chart when he was 19 years old. Armin’s next successful track titled “Communication” became a summer blockbuster hit in Ibiza in 1999, and broke into the UK Chart at No. 18 in 2000.
Over the years, A van B has been a staple on the trance music scene, but in 2000 Armin really skyrocketed to fame with his own Armin van Buuren compilation series, the first of which sold 10,000 copies.
In 2001, Armin van Buuren started his own weekly two-hour radio show titled A State of Trance. During the weekly two-hour show, Armin van Buuren plays the latest in popular trance music tracks. The artists van Buuren features gain popularity by being published on his website. Armin’s A State of Trance is currently a weekly feature on Radio 538, DI.FM and XM Satellite Radio and of course right here in Phuket.
Armin van Buuren brings his wildly popular A State of Trance weekly radio show to 91.5 & 102.5 FM Phuket Island Radio every Thursday from 22:00 – midnight. Be prepared to be blown away by the talent that is the legendary Armin van Buuren.
