REVIEW: Armin van Buuren - I Live For That Energy (ASOT 800 Anthem) out on ASOT recordings

Less than three months before A State Of Trance 800 touches down in Utrecht, the Netherlands, Armin van Buuren has given rise to the official anthem of the biggest Trance event in the world. ‘I Live For That Energy’ is to serve as the prime mood setter of A State Of Trance 800 and was released on his A State Of Trance label.
A sure-fire way to get fans from all over the world in A State Of Trance, ‘I Live For That Energy’ takes after its predecessors. Just like the previous anthems for A State Of Trance, this track harbors tremendous power and overflows the crowd with waves of energy while blowing their minds with an exceptionally dulcet melody.

A State Of Trance 800 will take place in Utrecht, the Netherlands on February 18th, 2017. In addition to Armin van Buuren himself, big Trance artists such as Aly & Fila, Ben Nicky, Bryan Kearney, John O’Callaghan, Jorn van Deynhoven, MaRLo, Omnia, Ørjan Nilsen, RAM, Super8 & Tab, Vini Vici and more are also part of the line-up.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]It's always extremely hard to produce an anthem that represents the intense atmosphere of big festivals like ASOT. Armin van Buuren has the task to outdone himself and he delivers the awesome I Live For That Energy. He delivers a powerful and highly anthemic straight to the point uplifting trancer with heavy drums, driving sharp basslines and superb breakdown with mesmerizing melodies, opera style vocals and his classical orchestral music strings section. The climax is euphoric and hands in the air by utilising the classical music theme in full synthy effect to bring that great synthesizers classics era back to life. Armin is back to his trance roots and as it seems this year's ASOT festival version will be the finest so far if we judge from the mood of the anthem. #PureGold [/content]
