In some of our most hardest times, we always find ourselves turning to music that we instantly connect with, the ones that make us feel like the things we are going through or simply help us escape. It can lift our moods, lower levels of stress, combat depression and if anything, music is the one thing that has the ability to get us through everything.
For some of us Trance fans, we’ve found the strongest musical connections through Armin van Buuren’s seemingly never-ending catalogue of entrancing tunes, and in these uncertain times, he is still right there with you through the release of his new downtempo compilation album, ‘RELAXED’.
From new renditions of Armin van Buuren classics such as ‘Blue Fear’, ‘Shivers’ and ‘Fine Without You’ to exquisite remixes of his modern day records like ‘All On Me’, ‘I Need You’ and ‘All Comes Down’, now is the perfect time to rediscover these much-loved gems through this compilation of breathtaking reworks.
“There are a lot of things going on in the world right now that can be hard to deal with. The stress can get to you and your mind could keep reeling from all the worries as you’re trying to cope with it all. I feel that it’s important to be able to briefly step away from it all, to leave your worries behind for a moment and take a much-needed breather. That’s what I hope to achieve with my ‘RELAXED’ album,” Armin van Buuren said in a press release.
Overflowing with euphoric atmospheres and soothing vibes, the new album is pure relaxation and points towards a more downtempo direction, offering 30 astounding remixes from the likes of Eelke Kleijn, Just Her, Marsh, Trinix, KOLIDESCOPES, Lev, Módl and more.
“I gathered acoustic versions of some of my own tracks and many of my fellow producers to create new chill-minded versions that could alleviate the stress a bit. I hope that everyone listening to this album will be able to put things in perspective and draw strength from it so they can find their way,” Armin van Buuren added.
