Some of his most beloved works, such as ‘Communication’, ‘Burned With Desire’, ‘Blue Fear’, ‘Shivers’ and ‘Yet Another Day’, have grown into all-time favourite classics, withstanding the test of time.
With remix offers flooding in, Armin has the luxury of taking on only the tracks that he really loves. His remix discography includes cult TV series 24, Danish TV series The Killing, Dutch film Nova Zembla and tracks by the likes of Krewella, Motorcycle, The Killers, Faithless, BT, Dido, Zedd, Chicane and Kerli.
