Conceptualize a new concept to Armin Only – Embrace
October 21, 2016
The Legend of Trance or dance music is back in town for a one night only exclusive show in the Southeast Asian region on the 1st of April. The Lion City will welcome a new, never before seen immersive performance that is incomparable to any typical electronic dance music event.
Armin Van Buuren’s 6th studio album came to life from the idea of EMBRACING different genres and instruments to meld them into his own sound. Armin has been around since the time electronic dance music was in the depths of the underground scene. Since then, Armin has become the front runner in creating new and fresh sounds without following a formulatic career. This album is filled with unexpected collaborations that one will not usually come across.
Armin Only Embrace is exactly what the title deems it to be. He embraces a range of different styles and infuses them into his staple genre – trance. Talk about originality! If fans are expecting an all trance Armin Only set, you’ll be surprised come April 1st. He is switching it up by inviting a cast of 11 which includes 7 popular artists, each with their own genre. Some of the artists include Eric Vloeimans (Jazz), Mr Probz (Rapper) and Kensington (Rock). Get ready for some trance infused rock, pop, jazz, R&B, hip hop and more!
Introducing Club Embrace which features well known Armin tracks that have been remixed into particular sounds that are recognizable in pre parties. Some of these tracks include classics such as Beautiful Life, Mirage, This Is What It Feels Like, and Never Say Never. Fans will be introduced to Club Embrace in April as it will be Armin’s warm up set for Embrace
Get ready for a one-hour vinyl set by the main man himself. It’s not every day that you’ll get to see this and we’re bringing back the traditional way of when this all began. This concept really brings it back to when Armin began his old school style without all the flash and fireworks. One hour of the forgotten sound of classic trance, oooo the sense of nostalgia - we can already feel it!
We’ll let you in to a little secret; it’s not every stop that Armin will spin a vinyl set ;)
Performers and Artistes
There will be 35 people travelling around the world with Armin; this includes a collection of live singers, a band, dancers including a classical ballet dancer, acrobats, a trumpeter and more. This is not your average Armin Only show; lets just put it that way. Other performers include big names such as Angel Taylor, Cimo Frankel, Betsie Larkin and Bullysongs – each bringing their own groove and element to the show. These collaborations are unexpected and this time around fans can REALLY expect the unexpected when dance music meets performance!
Don’t worry; Armin will still keep to his roots of mainstream trance beats with flashing visuals and dazzling lightshows and fireworks that will keep everyone wanting for more. This show is something that has never been done before in EDM history! And you Singapore will get to experience this, come April!
