Armin van Buuren has been serving to to form digital music into the business power it's as we speak for over 20 years. In addition to releasing music that has pushed the boundaries of the style’s sound, he began what's arguably some of the profitable impartial music labels on the planet with Armada Music.
Today marks a landmark for the veteran producer due to the discharge of the 1500th observe on Armada’s sublabel, Armind. “Stickup” by van Buuren himself, is the observe that has been chosen for this coveted launch spot in honor of the label’s continued success.
The heightened BPM drives the observe into trance territory from the outset, and a robotic vocal line tells listeners to ‘put their fingers up’—giving them a short respite from the speedy kicks driving the piece ahead. The music’s power ebbs and flows because it goes on, making a rollercoaster journey paying homage to his earlier work throughout his trance days.
“Stickup” has been a mainstay in van Buuren’s stay units lengthy earlier than the observe’s launch date. The music was first performed at A State Of Trance 900 in Utrecht, and it's now featured prominently on van Buuren’s new A State Of Trance, Ibiza 2019 album.
