AMSTERDAM, December 10th, 2014 – Today Armin van Buuren’s A State of Trance Spotify Playlist outstripped every other artist playlist on the planet except one, crossing the 200,000 followers mark. It’s a feat that’s only been beaten by one other artist, pop sensation One Direction. The difference isn’t that much either, with One Direction’s Spotify playlist having around 235,000 followers as of this writing.
2014 has seen many firsts for Armin, who received a 7x platinum certification for ‘This Is What It Feels Like’, was nominated for a Grammy, and crossed 1 million total followers on his Spotify channel (already 1.2 million now). In addition, he finished his world tour for ‘Armin Only: Intense’, released ‘Armin Anthems: Ultimate Singles Collected’, regained his top 3 spot in the DJ Mag poll and was nominated for a Sirius XM ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’.
As one of the first DJs to fully embrace the platform both with his own radio show and the releases from his record label, Armada Music, it seems that the fans have responded in droves to the effort.
