Album of the month
Armin van Buuren 'Club Embrace' (Armada)
Fans have been eagerly anticipating the release of this two-hour long continuous mix ever since it was announced back in August. Mirroring the warm-up sets of his Armin Only world tour, it’s made up of 28 exclusive remixes of some of the producer’s best-known tunes and is the perfect soundtrack for a pre-party. There are a number of tracks taken from from his latest album ‘Embrace’, as well as a selection of classic cuts such as ‘Communication’, ‘Blue Fear’ and ‘In And Out Of Love’ mixed by the likes of Rodg, Gai Barone, Martin Roth and Solid Stone. From Ruben de Ronde’s particularly deep remix of ‘Last Stop Before Heaven’ to Matt Lange’s experimental take on ‘This is What It Feels Like’, it’s a captivating listen that reminds you just how many great tracks Armin’s made in his 20-year career.
