Armin van Buuren releases full Tomorrowland set from A State of Trance stageTomorrowland Armin Van Buuren 2018

Armin van Buuren has shared his entire Tomorrowland weekend two set from this year’s set at the A State of Trance stage. Those who missed, or daydreamers trying to relive that day in festival history can now listen through the 43 tracks, in order, of which he played. Van Buuren opened with a dedication to his son, Remy, who turned five, before dropping into his new song with Vini Vici and Alok featuring Zafrir, “United.” Powering through, the trance legend hits songs produced by himself and close collaborators in the genre space such as W&W, Vini Vici, Gareth Emery, Dash Berlin, Conrad Sewell, Shapov, Josh Cumbee, Maor Levi, Mark Sixma, Super8 & Tab, STANDERWICK, Emma Hewitt, Ben Gold, and many more.

Van Buuren’s nearly two-hour set was one of three sets he played at one of the biggest festivals in the world. The other two sets took place on Tomorrowland’s infamous main stage. If four hours from the trance radio behemoth isn’t enough, he played a seven hour trance set at Untold Festival in Romania earlier this month and shared the full stream.

Armin van Buuren & Vini Vici bring Alok into the fold with ‘United’

Dance music icon Armin van Buuren linked up with Israeli DJ and production duo Vini Vici on what would later become an instant festival classic, “Great Spirit.”  This was in 2016. Now nearly two years later, the team has connected again, this time with an artist who has come to prominence since their first collaboration together: Alok.

“United” has an impressive rolling cadence, calling us to attention as we listen through the energetic track. Clearly intended to follow in the footsteps of their last hit, “United” is primed for festival play. But it’s been done in a contemporary way, acknowledging the rise in higher BPM styles in both hard dance, which saw its first main stage set at this year’s Tomorrowland, and even van Buuren’s home in trance music. In the end, the track becomes more widely appealing with this faster beat that conveys an energy that some synths can’t achieve. Featuring the vocals of Zafrir in its fist pump-inducing chanting, “United” has legs to last through the rest of the season.

W&W and Vini Vici team up for new psytrance single ‘Chakra’

This post was originally published on this site

W&W and Vini Vici have teamed up for their latest release “Chakra,” which combines a blend genres and cultures to create on of their most unique tracks to date. The foundation of “Chakra” is fast paced psytrance with an almost country western meets tribal chant influences dispersed throughout the six minute long track. The elaborate song has the potential to grace the largest festival main stages in addition to the underground club circuit, and it’s a definite divergence from both artists’ usual sound.

Transmission began in the Czech Republic and quickly established itself as one of the premier international trance festivals, eventually spreading to Australia and Thailand. One of the gathering’s hallmark features is its jaw-dropping laser shows, which seem to somehow outdo themselves year after year.

The flagship Transmission at Praque’s O2 arena delivered yet another unforgettable experience for its 2016 edition, unleashing an aftermovie that offered a taste of the action with sharp lasers set to Armin van Buuren and Vini Vici’s re-work of “The Great Spirit.”

Watch the six-minute psychedelic show unfold above.

Defqon.1 festival may have just met its mach. The franchise, which has locations in Amsterdam, Australia, Chile has become known internationally for their premier visual productions that pervade the Hardstyle event franchise. Video footage from this year’s Transmission festival, a Czech event founded in 2006, shows intricate laser designs that would make any Defqon devotee blush.

The video provides an excerpt from Israeli duo Vini Vici‘s closing from this year’s installment of the Prague massive. Aside from the lasers’ vibrance, intricacy, speed, and sheer numbers, Transmission’s lighting designers have managed to strike an interplay between the performance’s lasers and secondary visual elements that is among the most well-crafted stimuli conglomeration for an event of its size. The full video can be viewed above.
