Armin Van Buuren was born in Leiden, Holland and became fascinated with music at a young age. Armin also gained an interest in computer technology early on and by the age of 14, he had his first sampler and together with his father's synthesizer started making music.
Soon Armin Van Buuren picked up a passion for mixing and started working as a DJ in local clubs. At university whilst studying law he set-up his first real studio and started producing tunes. Touch Me and Communication were produced there. Van Buuren does not like to be confined to a particular style of music although his preference is euphoric, uplifting, melodic, high-energy trance.
His ambition and drive to succeed have seen him studying, producing, and working as a DJ at the same time. His music producing skills have led to a string of hit records and DJ compilations and he is a regular at the largest trance festivals and dance music events across the globe. His name is synonymous with high quality energy trance.
During the past few years Van Buurren has been awarded a range of awards including the Golden Harp for his contribution to trance music and the Buma Cultuur Pop Award, one of the most prestigious Dutch music awards. In 2010 Van Buuren launched a 24-hour radio show called "A State of Sundays" which airs on Sirius XM Radio. Currently he is working on a new studio album although a title has not been confirmed.
