I have always enjoyed Armin's sets when he has been over here. Even though it is cheesy and a 4 yr old could mix it, he does entertain.

Love the point about one hour of big hits, the rest pretty flat. I've not listened to trance in the car or ipod for a year or two but I'll always make an effort to get to Armins gigs. The man is an entertainer, and his passion rubs off on the crowd.

He's got some proper points about DJing there, say what you will about him but he's a proper craftsman...

@ Sliceydicer how is he more commercial than Avicii? Hes more succesful?
@ Yossarianls Sane, cheesy sets are for festival crowds. His club shows and htings like Armin Only are amazing. He is a Legend.

How can you call Armin mainstream? I don't think i have ever heard his music on the radio or matter a fact any trance music. He is the best dj in the world and he isn't a sellout... i think that says it all. To compare him to shm or avicii is a insult to trance music

%u201CI mean, in all honesty if I listen to a few DJs of my colleagues right now I like their sets but it%u2019s so mainstream driven" .... well said Armin rings true ... your old mate Tiesto should know as thats the road he took - cater to the commerical mainstrem goons to cash in for his eventual retirement..
@Stocko12 - well said.

Armin doesn't even make sense. He rarely mixes a set with a journey in mind. Tiesto could only do that.

@trancekid - If you think Armin only NYE was a 'journey' you must definitely be a kid / teeny bopper ... The crescendo of the night was the moment the year ticked over and he dropped 'one' by swedish house mafia >_> Armin only 2008 was a Journey, Kid.

While I agree with the points he is making, Armin isn't exactly the man to be making them. What he has done to trance is the same thing that he is saying Avicii is doing to other kinds of music. If J00F had said all those things, it would be a lot more credible.

Been saying it for ages and now armin kinda agrees. About how all these dj's are catering for the tastes of the fat pocketed/(assed, bellied, headed) American in order to get the big pay checks from corporate America. What can i say they like cheese, dats why they are so fat.

Tiesto, pre elements of life, mixed sets which took the listener on a journey, say what you want about the guy, but shit he can mix!

Armin - mate you are commercial as fuck! i saw you in 2005 and your set was unreal, now the shit you play is just lame, and put you fucking hands down unless they are nailed to a cross.

Avicii or however you spell your name, seriously mate you look like a alien, what planet are you from? Levels is the worst track I have ever heard, if you think it's banging, you have no musical education what so ever.....

I will call you on not having any idea what you're talking about here, Wowky. You don't really get/understand trance as a wider genre. J00f represents a very particular side of the sound, and while Armin is probably guilty of watering down his productions the past few years, there's no one else who's done as much for the scene, supported as many new producers, pushed the scene forward etc etc.

'Mirage' didn't exactly thrill me, but seeing Armin perform at ASOT500 last year reminded what an technically elite DJ he really is.

@sunylam ahem In out of Love getting over 100 million not 1000 but million views on youtube I'd say that's pretty mainstream and not to mention he's made good decent commercial trance records such as Shivers, Burned with Desire, Sound of Goodbye and I've seen his poppy tracks being played on MTV as well.

I think its a load of crap they are all words and nothing more. I have nothing against commercial records but most of his recent tracks and sets don't really interest me one bit, from one what I've heard his radioshow is full of noisy shit and has been for the past 4-5 years now.

What sort of DJ could be classed as 'a top DJ' if they play all the big tunes first and then no sort of follow on?? WTF At least Armin has it down pat :D Bring On Armin Only 2013!!!

I do think Armin is almost made to make more commercial tracks due to his label/name and I really hope he keeps sliding down the charts even more.
It might ease pressure on him and allow him time to make some quality tracks, how anyone could produce something decent while doing his schedule around the world, i have no idea. I would be in a permanent state of jet lag.
His festival sets are very very average but seeing him in a club scene this year, reminded me how good he really is. Really, at heart he is just a party boy wanting to put on a big show, but he does have raw talent that these other DJ's dont have

@lawlietsky the first time i saw armin was at welovesounds in 09 for a 5 hour set. even that was a journey. yea i was a bit let down when the first songs of the new year were one and miami to ibiza but the rest of the night was killer. so many classic tracks and amazing memories. i wish i was able to go to arminonly in 08 but i can only go off what ive been to. no dicksizing plz

Am I the only Trance Junkie that appreciates a little diversity in some sets? It does not always have to be euphoria euphoria euphoria.... although thats always good.
