Following the ways of the ‘Great Spirit’, December 12th, 2017 saw Armin van Buuren, Vini Vici, and featuring artist Hilight Tribe entrance their followers with a freshly conjured hymn. By calling upon a tempestuous bassline, thrilling melody, and tribal chants to do maximum damage, they conjured a piece of marvel that was sure to fuel the sonic fire. Judging by the global reception, the ‘Great Spirit’ was not the only entity that approves of this offering.
“‘ never thought [Great Spirit] would go on to sell certified gold in Sweden. I ended up playing this track on almost every big festival throughout the summer season, mainly as a mash-up between the original record and the remix version from Wildstylez. It was one of the first tracks I did that drew inspiration from the Psy-Trance scene. Lots of great memories!” said Armin.

As the flag-bearer of the trance movement, he’s one of the most influential figures in EDM worldwide. Even though he lives an extraordinary life as one of the world’s most popular DJs, he has always remained a down-to-earth guy. Armin van Buuren is constantly on the move, whether creating music in his studio or en route to his next high-end club or festival show around the globe.
