Here is Armin’s set from the DJ Magazine Top 100 DJ’s party. As you probably already know, Armin secured the #1 spot in this year’s popularity contest. Many of you know of my discontent for the DJ Mag voting machine, so you may wonder… why are you posting a set from the party? Well, despite my aversion to this contest, I still believe that Armin deserves the top spot. He is extremely hard working, he and his record company have accomplished a lot this year, and he has maintained a decently humble character throughout his success. I know that his style of trance doesn’t appeal to everyone, but he has certainly reached out to the most people worldwide. So, while I don’t give much credibility to the results of this contest, I still appreciate all of the hard work Armin has put in this year. Let’s get down to the set played by the #1 DJ in the world. The tunes in the tracklist are pretty commercial and notably well played-out, which makes it very fitting for this specific party. You won’t hear anything new (except for the Sean Tyas track), but the set is designed to be a universal crowd-pleaser for the entire confluence of ASOT listeners. Check out the very first set of the newly re-crowned #1 DJ in the world…
