    Armin van Buuren is Mr. Perfect - Documentary

    Was quite surprised to see this on YouTube, especially after I saw that title on Armin's official channel. It's a documentary about him, spanning from his first musical steps to today.

    I guess it's not bad, but it's nothing special either. The narration is pretty childish, but I like how he admits he's a bit awkward, a geek and not really belonging to that culture that makes him so popular nowadays. A bit of an insight into his personality, but just a bit.

    EDIT: Oh, I see this is a few years old. But the episodes were uploaded in the past few days. How so?

    I'll try to update this post with all the episodes.

    Ive been watching it,pretty interesting - especially the parts when he was starting out in his studio...he had quite a lot of hardware so early on it seems! I love looking back at what these producers were doing in 98/99 and the magical tracks they were making.

    Didnt realise this documentry was old though..

    It says 2017 at the end of every clip I think.

    Yeah it's pretty interesting - I like how it's not fake or glorifies him or his lifestyle. I wish there were more clips of him working in his studio (in the early days), but I guess there just isn't a lot of footage. And notice how he completely failed to mention that period where he made house between Blue Fear and Communication.

    Well he couldve gone into a lot more detail through all the 90's stuff,but i guess there was time restraints...he went from Communication to his album 76 - when all his best tracks were before then hehe (before 2003).

    What I find very interesting is that he used a few of Junkie XL's tracks as a score in Part 2. That album (Distance Between Dreams OST) is one of the best electronic albums IMO - certainly my favourite. Glad to see he likes it as well - surprised how he got the rights as it's the soundtrack of a RedBull documentary.

    This was on Dutch tv right before the “best of Armin only” show.

    Makes sense. Still don't get it why he's putting it up now. Shame it wasn't current, would've loved to see some behind the scenes on that Gaia album.

    Updated the OP with ep. 4.

    Off topic, but a nice track! The vocals (including the male ones) are shit but the rest is pretty good.

    Delusional - the matrix has him and he needs to escape. This is all fake bullshit. It's completely madeup. He's selling a fantasy and someone is telling to sell this bullshit fantasy.

    Voci edit: Alright. Contact was told not to write about illness, matrix, “i am the one” stuff anymore. He then sent PM’s with more of that. He got warned and told to stop sending PM’s. He sent more sickness in the air oral health crap, so he got a 1 week ban. And now this matrix stuff again. So there you go: banned.

    Someone wrote it a long time ago and unfortunately I agree: You are making this scene more toxic than it already is, spreading hate and nonsense.
