Nowadays, "everything's about the drop", says Armin van Buuren.
Sitting down with Mixmag, DJ spoke about what he calls a "shift" in dance music over the past five years: "Everything’s become about the drop and the breakdown. I want to bring people on a journey rather than just bringing them the drops."
He also revealed details about his new Armin Only tour: "It's going back to my roots with trance," he said. "I've got a new director, a completely new set of singers, a new theme and a few special surprises."
Armin van Buuren last week announced a collaboration with tech company Philips, the new M1X-DJ sound system, a portable mixer that works using Algoriddim's DJ software. Watch his video demo of the DJ sound system below.
