Armin van Buuren’s longstanding weekly radio show reaches another milestone : episode number 650.
What started out as a two hour mix on ID&T Radio in 2001, has morphed into a global phenomenon, with more than 20 million listeners tuning in every week. Each year, celebrations take place in numerous locations around the globe, backed by, of course, the official anthem.
Last year’s anthem, The Expedition (ASOT 600) was a bit disappointing, given that it was a collaboration between Armin and Markus Schulz, so expectations were somewhat higher. This year, the soundtrack is provided by fellow Dutchman Jorn van Deynhoven.
New Horizons will no doubt be an instant favourite for uplifting fans. Epic strings, sharp melodic sequences and the ever-present rolling bass line will tick all the right boxes. While, in my opinion, nothing really comes close to Status Excessu (ASOT 500), this one is quite a close second. If you don’t immediately take to it, give it time. It’ll grow on you.
The full version of the track will be available starting this coming Monday, January 27th. 3 days later, the ASOT 650 world tour kicks off in Moscow (for more details check here).
