Armin van Buuren Keeps On Delivering Trance Goodness At Hï Ibiza

Armin van Buuren’s tasty trance treats keep on coming at Hï Ibiza each Wednesday this summer. The State Of Trance originator has held this popular evening residency since Hï Ibiza first opened its doors three years ago – and it’s only getting better. AvB has perfected a trance and EDM blend that has seen it grow into one of the island’s most popular club nights. Here’s what happened when Armin van Buuren took over Hï Ibiza’s Theatre for the ninth time this summer.

Trance is making a comeback. Although those early glory days in the 90s are a happy, yet distant memory, certain dance music innovators are leading, evolving and pushing this genre to the forefront. Armin van Buuren is one of those. With Hï Ibiza’s stunning Theatre pumping from wall-to-wall, we were ready for some extended AvB goodness, where he’d display all his usual selecting prowess, featuring his best productions and finest track discoveries.

As we’ve come to love and expect from an Armin van Buuren set: he does not slow down. This was real unrelenting tribal house, trance and thumping electro, laid-out for us through Hï Ibiza’s bespoke Adamson soundsystem. He brilliantly blended his own BPM laden tracks with other, more EDM focussed selections. Quintino and Hardwell’s Reckless rippled the Theatre, along with AvB’s own Turn It Up, but it was his W&W Repeat After Me collaboration that had the floor shaking to a 10 on the Richter scale. Armin van Buuren’s full force was felt on this night.

After attempting to regain some composure after such Theatre madness, there was no time to catch a breath. It was time for a customary visit to the Club room, where Sunnery James and Ryan Marciano were reaching the end of what was no doubt an electric set in Hï Ibiza’s more intimate music room offering. This pair has been entrusted with Club room duties since AvB’s residency first started – and when you step in to see them, you’ll understand why. The Dutch duo displays all kinds of dance music genres, spanning house, techno, progressive, tribal and more. Their pulling power is apparent and – once again – they were blowing the room to pieces. Although Armin van Buuren headlines this night, you have to give these boys at least an hour of your time. You’ll no doubt stay for longer.
