    Armin doesnt play trance? It seems he plays all the fresh uplifting/banging stuff in the 2nd hour like most other dj's plays aswell.

    That's the problem. The 140 he plays is essentially what every other 140 DJ is playing at the moment.
    It's not a hobby. It's not an interest. It's not a phase - it's a way of life that consumes every waking minute.

    When you are famous, you will understand why the fucking busy, instead of complaning.

    The thing is when the set is getting repetitive for a really long time like Armin's.

    I would say he needs to put his shit together, but as you said he is already famous and has blind fans that follow him everywhere so he can keep playing the same set for the next decade and he still be rich.

    Why bring something new when ur fanbase ain't asking for it?
    Screw #TranceFamily, screw TrashBerlin, screw the heart hands, screw all the cheese music that shouldnt be attempting to the glory of Trance.
    LONG LIVE TO REAL TRANCE!!!

    If you listen his Radio Show or something, you will found his tracklist is different.
    I dont like his tracklist at show/events btw. But his selection in ASOT is almost Real Trance, quality.

    Thats the problem with Armin. His radio show is still good, but his live-sets are dull and no story. Always jumping and raise my hands.

    I've listened to his last set at Tomorrowland just for curiosity and boy, he is really going downward.
    His set at Ultra of some months ago was better than this, and that should say it all.
    Of course I was expecting big room stuff, but not so many and so bad! But what really makes me angry is his "are you guys ready for a state of trance" slogan... and then he just plays that another mashup of a big room trance/house tune with some commercial crap
    I don't wanna hear any excuse from him or anybody else: Aly & Fila don't give a sh*t, they just play 100% trance at ANY event where they play without fooling anyone.

    EXACTLLY what i say they consider that this american bigroom electrohouse music is trance.
    They consider that trance is something, what is clearly not.

    I agree with you, but Armin is a brand. He plays the songs he make, and I don't blame him at all. If I had such big gigs as him, I would also play alot of my own material (including tracks from my label).

    Also if you look at "real" bands, they also only play their own stuff. I think it's cool and as mentioned before, I don't blame him at all!

    I don't think that was the point. Armin was always known as a DJ who doesn't have a set full of his own stuff only. The point is that his tracklists are following the same pattern, being more or less the same for different festivals.

    He became a businessman and is now in charge of the ASOT empire and all associated musical acts.
    Music/DJing are his secondary priorities.

    Really interesting thread!

    2 weeks ago Armin was here in the south of Spain, so I checked many videos in Instagram and I can say it all was shit. Mainly the music played was EDM and Electro House, which I really don't like, it's about jumping and raising the hands, fuck it.

    The worst thing is that I saw people posting "wowww trance music is another world O:", then I saw their videos and guess what I heard...

    I thanks God for not being like those man

    I strongly diagree. His trance selection is just generic stuff. The same generic stuff that he plays in ASOT since 2012. It's really boring these days. ASOT used to be an innovative show with lots of sounds. Now is exactly the opposite.

    Generic stuff is the fault of the artists, not him. He is just trying to play STANDARD.
