Armin van Buuren scores the sixth collaboration dedicated to the ASOT 1000 with his friends of a lifetime
The expectation for the ASOT 1000 celebrations at the beginning of September is growing spasmodically: waiting to understand if the event will happen, the man who is behind all this has now taken off and every week he presents us with new tracks both from his personal musical repertoire and also through new collaborations with other artists dedicated to the celebrations of the 20 years of A State Of Trance.
Just a week after the fantastic “Lost In Space” with Jorn van Deynhoven, Armin van Buuren surprised us, during episode 1027 of A State Of Trance, announcing a new collaboration with his long-time friends, that is Rank 1: Benno De Goeij and Piet Bervoets, authors of some of the greatest trance hits ever, join the king of Dutch trance and sign “The Greater Light To Rule The Night”, an epic trance track that rises, inviting listeners to pay attention to the pure trance sound.
The track, released today, is not the first track signed by Rank 1 with Armin van Buuren: in 2007, it was the turn of “This World Is Watching Me” (feat. Kush) but the career of the Dutch DJ is studded of collaborations with Benno De Goeij: just think of the Gaia project, which certainly needs no introduction.
During the episode 1027 of A State Of Trance yesterday, Armin van Buuren did not miss another new track: a track played in preview in some DJ sets last weeks, in which they recognize themselves the sounds of previous collaborations with AVIRA: so, the two DJs enjoyed playing on a melody from a 1982 track by The Alan Parsons Project from the famous album “Eye In The Sky”: “Sirius” is the title of the track, a progressive-trance record characterized by exciting drops and which lends itself perfectly to returning to the dancefloor.
