Mixed by Armin van Buuren – ‘A State Of Trance, Ibiza 2020’

Especially with the less fortuitous developments casting a shadow over this year’s summer season, it’s important to seize the moment while it lasts, to not take anything for granted and to cherish memories for as long as you can. Some of you may still be able to recall the magic of Ibiza, with the summer sun caressing the skin as you throw your hands in the air and lose yourself in the music until the day turns to night and back again. That feeling of euphoria may seem far away now, but Armin van Buuren is pushing it back within reach with the seventh Ibiza-scented edition of his reputable A State Of Trance mix album series: ‘A State Of Trance, Ibiza 2020’.

Alpha 9 – ‘Everywhere I Go’

Featured on Above & Beyond’s Anjunabeats Volume 15 compilation album, ‘Everywhere I Go’ returns to the classic, rolling trance sound that defined some of Alpha 9’s earliest contributions to the label. Listen closely and you’ll hear just an echo of ‘Zara’, Arty’s smash from 2011.

DVBBS – ‘Nothing To See Here’
