Ibiza, the summer destination of electronic music lovers around the world. In the heart of this island stands Ushuaïa superclub with its biggest resident DJ, Armin van Buuren. ‘Unforgettable’ and ‘memorable’, the two words that describes Armin’s summer residency at Ushuaïa. And what better way to bring those memories back with a double-mix compilation aptly titled ‘A State of Trance Ibiza 2015 at Ushuaïa’.
From the the cinematic sounds of The Walk, the compilation is filled with heart-pumping, hips swaying beats and uplifting melodies. Not to mention the emotionally filled vocal tracks that are abundance on this compilation. Most of the tunes have been tried and tested not just during Armin’s live sets but during his summer residency at Ushuaia. If you have attended Armin’s live sets this summer, you will be familiar with Armin van Buuren featuring Mr. Probz – Another You (Headhunterz Remix), Rank 1 vs. M.I.K.E. Push – Juno and Corti Organ – Butterfly. It’s not all dancing, Armin added a couple of beautiful vocal tracks such as Alexander Popov & LTN featuring Christina Novelli – Paradise, Antillas featuring Anki – If I Run (Venom One Remix) and Bryn Liedl featuring Bethany Marie – Statues (Bryan Kearney Remix). These tracks will definitely make you sing your hearts out.
Imagine being at Ushuaïa as Armin is dropping tracks such as Mark Sixma – Stellar, Andrew Rayel – Rise Of The Era (Digital X Remix) and W&W – The One right smack in the middle of the pool. It will probably take a lot of self-control not to jump into the pool when the beat drops. Or when he plays Beat Service – Cafe Del Mar, Yoel Lewis – Nepal and Alex M.O.R.P.H. & Heatbeat – Amistad which induces emotional abundance that forces your hands to reach for the heavens in reckless abundance.
Each mix has one song that takes you on an emotional ride. Those songs are MaRLo ft. Jano – The Dreamers and Ferry Corsten pres. Gouryella – Anahera. Both songs have powerful piano keys and melodic beats that will soothe your nerves and calm your soul. On a side note, the latter is definitely the tune of the year.
Armin played with our emotions the most during the later part of disc two. It is like a roller coaster ride from emotional track Anahera and Statues to the pumping beats of Jase Thirlwall – Glow and Yahel & Liya – Shadows (Stoneface & Terminal Remix) before closing out the compilation with the amazing Dan Stone rework of the classic Matt Darey ft. Kate Louise Smith – See The Sun and his fantastic remix of Game Of Thrones Theme.
A State Of Trance Ibiza 2015 at Ushuaïa contains tracks that are definite contenders for tune of the year. Those who visited Ibiza this year will surely enjoy listening to this compilation and relived the memories of Ushuaïa vividly. For those who didn’t make it, we can still enjoy this album. It will surely bring in summer warmness during the upcoming cold season.
