Armin van Buuren Feat. Sophie Ellis Bextor “Not Giving Up On Love”...

Armin van Buuren makes his second appearance in Hear the Music with the first single form his brand new album “Mirage”. The song will be very familiar to many of his fans who like me think his music works best with a strong female lead vocals. This time that job falls to English singer, songwriter, and model Sophie Ellis Bextor and she handles the job amazingly well. This song is really the type that will stand the test of time for van Buuren and is ripe to be remixed. Take a listen and let us know what you think leave a comment below. Armin van Buuren Feat.

Armin van Buuren (feat. Sharon den Adel) “In and Out of Love”...

Since I was on a roll introducing you to some of the better known names on the electronic music scene I thought I would continue the streak with another top talent. Armin van Buuren hails from the Netherlands and is a dance music artist of international acclaim. He has been voted number one DJ in DJ Magazine’s Top 100 three times in the past and is in contention for the fourth nod this year. Although I am not big on following EDM categorizations I have to admit Armin’s style is definitely more “Trance” than most. This is a good thing because he produces tracks that are lush and melodic (not everything can be bump and grind). One of his best is ‘In and Out of Love’ off his 2008 album “Imagine”, a collaboration with Dutch mezzo-soprano Sharon den Adel. Take a listen… Armin van Buuren – In and Out of Love is available...
