Dutch producer and DJ Armin van Buuren has been a fixture on the electronic music circuit for over 20 years. His latest single, “Sunny Days”, is a radiant, upbeat tune, featuring vocals by Josh Cumbee (the video features a dancing mime), that could easily find it’s way into rotation on Top 40 radio. In a testament to his prowess, he has earned DJ Mag‘s number one DJ in the world title several times (in a row). On top of his regular touring and family life, van Buuren has been hosting his weekly trance radio show A State of Trance for over 15 years. As a badge of honor for his years of service, van Buuren held a special The Best of Armin Only homecoming show in the Netherlands in May of this year, an event dubbed one of “unprecedented scale”.
