Armin van Buuren: “It’s the rush hour of life.”

Armin van Buuren: “It’s the rush hour of life.”

No rest for the perfectionists. When you’re living the life of Armin van Buuren, you know that once you’ve settled down, the next project is already knocking on your door. So despite this being the holiday season, it’s anything but quiet in mind of the Dutchman. Before facing a 2013 that bursts with new challenges, we invited Armin to reflect to the past 12 months. In the midst of family dinner, finishing the ASOT 600 album, Birthday celebrations and working on a film score, he shines a light on all major happenings of 2012, his personal goals and facing his demons. Armin:“I’m just as imperfect as everyone else, but I have this obsession with music to try and do my best to make that as perfect as possible.”
