Documentary: A Year With Armin van Buuren

00:00 Nov/30/1999

Armin van Buuren, the Dutch trance megastar started filming a documentary after the birth of his daughter in July 2011. The movie shows a well-balanced, endlessly-productive DJ close-hand – you’ll see how committed he is to his family and ’A State Of Trance’ radio show while working on a non-stop touring schedule.

“Trance music has a special effect on people,” says Armin early on in the doc. “It unites them in a way I’ve never seen with other types of music. It makes them ecstatic and has an almost religious effect. It’s extraordinary.”

The Dutch has been voted the number one DJ in the world for four years in a row now, so you know that Armin and his ’Trance Family’ know what their doing and talking about.

Although there’s a downside as well “Sometimes he works for over 80 to 90 hours a week,” says Erika, Armin’s wife.“He never stops working. He doesn’t like to show his weakness and does everything for his fans.” Doesn’t matter how committed he wants to or tries to be, there’s just some limits of the human body you can’t overcome. “When I get home, I’m tired and cranky. And the woman I love has to suffer.”

This is a great movie documenting the life of Armin van Buuren at his peak. Doesn’t matter, if you’re a fan looking for more intimate knowledge of the trance-titan or if you’re just interested how a superstar DJ lives – this is an insightful documentary to both the DJ and the trance world.
