It goes without saying that when you get to celebrate the achievement of reaching 1500 label releases, you better choose the right track for the job. Last week, Armin van Buuren got to decide for himself as his Armind label reached the aforementioned number, and there's no song better fit for the job than this intense, pounding blast of trance that truly is in a league of its own: Stickup.
Bringing the classic and somewhat nostalgic tech trance sounds of the past back to the current era, Stickup sees Armin van Buuren go all out with all guns blazing. This exhilarating track starts off at 100%, but you'd be wrong to assume that the energy levels rest there, as the increasing intensity goes on to hold the crowd hostage for a few minutes of fist-pumping. Stickup offers a moment of thrill and utter madness that you’ll find yourself talking about for several weeks straight.
The track has been a mainstay in Armin van Buuren’s live sets for a long time now. First played at A State Of Trance 900 in Utrecht, Stickup is now featured prominently on his new ‘A State Of Trance, Ibiza 2019’ album. We're grateful that it's now officially available for listeners worldwide and are certain that it will blow speakers to pieces across the globe.
