Armin van Buuren Curates Spotify Playlist With His Favorite Trance Anthems of All-Time

Trance music icon Armin van Buuren has taken over Spotify's "Trance Classics" playlist and filled it with his favorite trance anthems of all-time.

The list contains 50 nostalgic tracks from Above & Beyond, TiĆ«sto, Gareth Emery, 4 Strings, Ian van Dahl, Marsha, and many more.

van Buuren was recently named in's "Best of 2021: Songs" list in the trance category, where his single "Turn The World Into a Dancefloor" was honored alongside songs by Alpha 9, Ilan Bluestone & Ellen Smith, Au5 & HALIENE, and Aly & Fila & Jes.

Before 2021 came to a wrap, van Buuren performed in front of 20,000 fans at halftime of a Chicago Bulls' game against the Knicks at United Center. He opened with the Bulls' iconic theme song, which was famously remixed by Pretty Lights in 2011.
