Music is something that I like to describe as a force of of nature. The power it creates can have such an impact on it’s listeners. When you get to meet an artist that understands that intensity and is able to use it to tell a story, it’s something that stays with you. When I first met Armin I was not sure what to expect. For the past 15 years, this dutch maestro had carved out a place in EDM history with his own music, radio broadcasts, and live performances. This guy was the epitome of what you would call a true global music icon in this electronic music scene. I was pleasantly surprised that along with this superstar status, Armin was a true gentleman, scholar, and artist who truly loved what he did… Armin was the perfect perspective for my film and ended up being one of my favourite interviews in the DOC. I found a new appreciation for this superstar..

A man driven by an unbridled and relentless passion for music. A born perfectionist, striving to stay on top of the scene he’s helped to grow. The flag-bearer of the trance movement, one of the biggest scenes in EDM worldwide. A down-to-earth guy, living the extraordinary life of one of the world’s most popular DJ’s. Armin van Buuren is always on the move, whether through the music he creates in his studio, or bound to the next high-end club or festival somewhere around the Globe… “It’s not just love for music, it’s my passion. It goes beyond liking, and beyond a hobby, it’s about a way of living. Music is essential to my life.”

For more than 15 years, the Dutchman has been living to the rhythm of his own, international success. His 5 times number one position in the critically acclaimed DJ Mag’s Top 100 poll has been the result of his loyalty to fans, his creativity in the studio, the perseverance with which he hosts his weekly radio show A State of Trance and the energy he transcends to the crowds in front of him. Despite the heavy pressure that comes along with being one of the world’s most popular DJ, Armin has always kept his focus on the music. And that’s exactly what keeps him going.
