Armin van Buuren doesn't only embrace other sounds, but also sports. The famous DJ can be seen together with Dutch F1 sensation Max Verstappen after the F1 race in Brazil. Whereas Armin exels in producing beautiful dance tracks, Max exels in sensational overtakes on other tracks. Both guys are entertaining millions of followers world wide. So they have a lot in common don't you agree? We do not share this kind of news often, but for this special encounter we made an exception.
Embrace is the 6th studio album by dutch legend Armin van Buuren. Having had each track on repeat at least a dozen times, my verdict is 'solid crossover album, suprisingly trancy'. As a trance addict, I generally love Armin's productions, but I have not been too keen on his venturing into more progressive territory in recent years. His love for trance surfaces unmistakenly on Embrace however (hurray), like on the catchy 'Make it Right' featuring Angel Taylor's raw vocals and not the least on 'Face of Summer' featuring Sarah Decourcy. But forget about trance. For me the star is a guy called Eric Vloeimans.
