To Armin van Buuren, music is a natural state of mind. The Dutch DJ and producer lives, breaths and sleeps on the wonders of the 4-to-4 beat and has been at it for more than 15 years. Nine of those years have involved the annual release of his A State of Trance compilation. A highlight for the trance-minded and dance addicts, now reaching for its 2012 edition. This is A State of Trance 2012, mixed by Armin van Buuren.
2012 is a year much discussed, both in and outside the dance scene. It's the year in which the dance society celebrates the 550th episode and therefore 11th birthday of A State of Trance, Armin's beloved radio show. With 7 shows planned for March, it's another climax in the career of the Dutchman. 18 million listeners tune in every week, to enjoy Armin's selection of the latest in trance and progressive, as well as a blend of exclusive tracks and remixes. With each compilation representing a new year in trance on a special 2 disc mix, Armin brings his fans the A State of Trance compilation. A series going strong since 2004, winning several IDMA awards for 'Best Full Length DJ Mix'.
For 2012, Armin has found the perfect balance and track selection. From tracks produced especially for the ASOT series to new found gems from the upcoming league of dance producers. After weeks of preparation, A State of Trance 2012 is a fact!
