It's hard to put a thumb on the sound of Marco V. But that you can't stop it once it's started, this is one thing that's for sure'These days, Marco V is better known as 'the man of the classics', with a big list of hits and remixes to his name. Worldwide his music is renowned and respected and that's exactly what's secured him a well rewarded 18th spot position in DJ Mag's Top 100.His most recent album; Combi: Nations II is another great success and with his years of experience it's no wonder they cal him 'the DJ's DJ'. Marco is a big example for all upcoming talents. In short; an excellent choice for Armada@Panama!
As an ambassador of Armada's DJ's and producer team 'Perry O'Neil will also be gracing us with his presence behind the wheels of steel.

Panama's studio will also be hosting the well known 'Famous area' again.

Armada Night at Westergasfabriek - March 31st
Presale Armada Night with Armin van Buuren vs. Ali "Dubfire" started
We are pleased to announce that Armada presents its first Armada Night in the Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam. The roof will be blown right off this former coal factory on Saturday March 31st 2007. A night of fun and dancing with perhaps the most exceptional line up ever.
ARMIN VAN BUUREN, winner of the prestigious Edison award and currently the 2nd best ranked DJ in the world will grace us with his presence at the decks, together with Grammy Award winning DJ Ali 'Dubfire' Sharzinia, member of the best dj duo in the world; DEEP DISH!!
This breathtaking line up and location is promising to be a massive start and perhaps even the show of the year 2007. With an area of 2500 m2, 3000 people will be able to totally loose it from 22:00 until 6:00.
This will be the first time Armin will play the Westergasfabriek, and about time too considering he has played just about every other venue in the world worth mentioning. The Washington D.C. resident Ali 'Dubfire' has also seen his fair share of exceptional locations but this will also be his Westergasfabriek debut.
Presale has started on Thursday the 18th of January. Tickets can be bought directly through Armada at armadaevents.com, or through Ticketbox and/or other major ticket vendors.
Armada@Panama meets BANG! with DJ Remy Solo
Saturday March 31st Armada@Panama and BANG will combine forces for a special occasion. This evening will be all about the 4 hour set of the man who brought House en Techno music to the Netherlands. Of course we are talking about DJ REMY.
DJ Remy, also called 'The Hague's Hero' is a House / Techno DJ from the very begin. After being successful with gigs all around the world with, Silly Symfonies party's and his residency in the famous Dutch discotheque 'Roxy', Remy has come to a new dimension.
After Remy made the switch in 2006 from his former record label to Armada Music, his career boosted again. Remy founded his own 68 Recordings label within Armada and the same year he released some massive tracks like 'Crackdown', 'Nasty Ho' and 'Ignite'. 2006 also was the year of the very first BANG! This is a half yearly concept and carries the same name as the album Remy released in 2003. During the first BANG! Edition Remy played a four hour set and this Saturday, he will do it again at this Armada@Panama special edition!!But before Remy takes his place behind the wheels he will get the perfect warm up by his 'BANG! buddy' Frederik
Frederik is 50% of the Pako & Frederik duo. As a cooperation they released some records on the highly prestigious John Digweed 'Bedrock' label and on one of the world most famous labels 'Global Underground'. Their records also were hammered and picked up by the 'Renaissance & Global Underground' compilations. Also as a DJ, Frederik added some impressive clubs to his list. He played at 'I Love Techno' (Amnesia, Ibiza) , John Digweed's 'Bedrock Nights' (London) and many more'.In short, this man knows what to do'!!
Of course Famous will be hosting the studio again. This will be done by one of Holland's best producers of the moment 'Mischa Daniëls'. Mischa can rightfully be called one of Holland's hottest producers at the moment. Remix requests are offered to him from all over the world. We all hope he brings this 'vibe' with him to Panama, so we can experience this 'Magic Mischa' touch'_!!
