Armin van Buuren interview, Summerburst, Stockholm, 2016

Armin van Buuren feat. BullySongs – Freefall (Official Music Video):

”Family is the cornerstone of everything you are and what you do. Music is great, music is my other family as well but… your family will always be there for you. No matter if you’re successful, if you’re not successful, if you’re hard working or not so hard working – your family will always be there for you.” – Armin van Buuren

He’s been named number one in the prestigious DJ MAG Top 100 poll four times in a row, as the first DJ in the history of the DJ Magazine and an indication of his prolific output over the more than 14 years that’s Armin van Buuren has been DJing and producing. He’s a spokesman for trance and he reaches out to millions of listeners through his very weekly radio show, A State Of Trance.

I caught up with Armin van Buuren right before his set at the Summerburst festival in Stockholm, Sweden. Part from having so many questions of my own, I wanted to mix it up a bit. Make it even more Interesting, both for you the viewers, but also for Armin van Buuren himself. So before the interview I got in touch with Ben Liebrand. Ben is a dutch DJ icon, and was actually the one who inspired Armin van Buuren to become a DJ. I wanted to see if he had a question for Armin, he did. A question that turned out to have a very personal answer.

I also got in touch with Armin’s brother Eller, I figurer since he knows Armin very well, I wanted to see if he had a question for him as well – he did. And it turned out to be a very interesting one as well, hear Armin’s view on something he gets to do a lot of – interviews.

We also talk about the life of a world traveling DJ, hear how traveling the world has made Armin feel like a richer person, not in money but in experience.

And hear what’s coming up, Armin van Buuren is going old school!

Personal note:

Ever since I the early 2000’s, when I got in to electronic dance music, Armin van Buuren has always been a favorite of mine. I have followed his every release and seen him evolve both as a DJ and as a producer, so getting the chance to sit down and talk to him was truly something special.

I hope you guys enjoy watching this just as much as I enjoyed making it. And you’ll hoppfully get a glimpse of the person that is Armin van Buuren, not only the DJ or the producer. But on a more personal level.

Thank you for watching 🙂
