Armin van Buuren sends message of unity with 'A State Of Trance Year Mix 2022'
Life. It’s a gift the universe bestowed upon us, a chance to make a difference for the world to come. A State of Trance firmly believes in loving, dancing and living together under a new sun, and the nineteenth instalment of Armin van Buuren’s annual year mix series puts that hope for a better future into sound: ‘A State of Trance Year Mix 2022’.
Just like the amassed crowd at the globally renowned A State of Trance events, the music featured in this brand-new year mix turns diversity into unity. Flaunting a cross-genre selection of 109 tracks from staple acts such as Above & Beyond, Ahmed Helmy, Ben Hemsley, Bryan Kearney, Chicane, Ferry Corsten, Gareth Emery, Giuseppe Ottaviani, Hardwell, Kryder, Reinier Zonneveld, Richard Durand and Sneijder, the two-hour mix radiates harmony and acceptance, and extends a hand to anyone who has yet remained unseen, unheard or unloved.
“The annual ASOT year mix album has always been a highlight for me and my fans; you could feel the harmony during the special four-hour livestream I did on Discord as I created the year mix,” Armin van Buuren says. “We all share a boundless love for (trance) music, and especially now, it’s important for everyone to focus on the things that connect us rather than the things that divide us. 2022 was a great year for trance music with lots of amazing tracks getting released, and I hope this means we stand united for 2023.”
