After the crowd’s massive response to their two previous collaborations, Armin van Buuren and Shapov have unleashed their third joint offering after ‘The Last Dancer’ and ‘Our Origin’: ‘La Résistance De L’Amour’.
Armin van Buuren and Shapov’s three-track ‘Trilogy’ pack is essential for any dance music fan. From the inaugural ‘The Last Dancer’ to Tomorrowland tastemaker ‘Our Origin’ and the before-mentioned new addition, this triple-threat release will have fans pumping their fists in the air from the early evening to the first morning light.
Armin van Buuren: “Shapov and I obviously hit it off in the studio and I really think it shows. When I played ‘La Résistance De L’Amour’ at ASOT 900 Utrecht and ASOT Ultra recently, the crowd went nuts. I’m really proud of all three records we made together and honestly think each track is a perfect combination of our sounds.”
Shapov: “To me, ‘Trilogy’ is how Shapov and Armin sound together, how Progressive House meets Trance. Every track has its own atmosphere and emotion. It’s all beautiful melodies, epic build-ups and music from the heart, and I think that’s why these tracks work so well when played live.”
Amazing remixes in different genres. House remix by ATFC, Trance remix by ReOrder and Crossover by Zack Martino. This remix package of ‘Lonely For You’ has something for everyone.
Turning Armin van Buuren and Bonnie McKee’s heartfelt single on its head in signature style, ATFC, ReOrder and Zack Martino deliver greatness on remix duty. From ATFC’s soulful House edit to ReOrder’s uplifting masterpiece to Zack Martino’s crossover rendition, this remix package of ‘Lonely For You’ has something for everyone.
Following the grand success of mainstage anthem ‘Blah Blah Blah’, Armin van Buuren has pulled out all the stops to unleash yet another full-throttle festival anthem. Already premiered to legions of fans during his sets at ASOT 900 Utrecht and in his A State Of Trance radio show, ‘Turn It Up’ does exactly what its title implies: getting listeners to crank up the volume big time.
Created off the back of several amazing crossover songs, including the wonderful ‘Lonely For You’, ‘Turn It Up’ sees Armin van Buuren unleashes his dark side for a fresh cut meant the biggest stages. Peppered with colossal drums, infectious vocals and stadium-quivering bass, this blistering track is meant to make the crowd erupt into fist-pumping madness.
Armin van Buuren: “I’m always excited for the festival season because of the crowd’s response to tracks like these. Nothing beats the feeling you get when fans go absolutely nuts to something you play, and ‘Turn It Up’ was made for that exact purpose. I’m really looking forward to playing this one all throughout the summer.”
For so many years, fans have been dreaming of a legendary link-up between Above & Beyond and Armin van Buuren, and that moment has finally arrived today. As the long-anticipated, first-ever collaboration between the iconic trio and the five-time #1 DJ in the world, ‘Show Me Love’ is an instant fan favorite, paving the way for – hopefully – many more future link-ups between the fellow Grammy nominees and electronic music flagbearers.

Premiered live on stage at A State Of Trance 900 in Utrecht, the Netherland, the biggest indoor Trance event in the world, ‘Show Me Love’ is the manifestation of what could be the most awe-inspiring dance music pairing of the decade. Juggling impactful, arena-shuddering rhythmics, a gorgeous, piano-led breakdown and a heavenly melody engineered for excitement, this brand-new collaborative record is everything fans wanted it to be: a magnificent, evergreen Trance cut that bridges the gap between Anjunabeats and Armada Music.
Above & Beyond: “We’ve always been welcomed by the Armada Music and A State Of Trance family worldwide. Having shared many stages with Armin, it was great to finally get in a studio together to swap ideas, and ‘Show Me Love’ came together really organically.”
Armin van Buuren: “The guys from Above & Beyond and I exchanged a few remixes back in the early 2000s, and we really enjoyed working together. Despite that, we never linked up in the following years, until now. I think that ‘Show Me Love’ can play a big part in uniting fans from all over the world and I hope it will spark a beautiful collaborative era between us and our respective labels.”
After teaming up with Armin van Buuren for the roaring ‘The Race’, Dave Winnel returns with this track solo. It is nice to see Dave Winnel back with his new track with a touch of Trance. Between you and me… ‘Lily Of The Valley’ might not be a lonely one…!

Last weekend 35.000 people took over the Jaarbeurs in Utrecht to celebrate the 900th episode of ASOT!
We’ve been there to witness the record-breaking festival and thanks to the precious cooperation of Armada Music and Alda Events, we’ve lived the best experience ever!
We’ve been among the very few lucky ones to attend Armin’s press conference before the show, where he introduced us to this spectacular happening, raised the hype about the future of this event and been so kind to take the time to answer a few questions…just right before he blew our minds with a special vinyl warm up set!!
As always, the partnership between ASOT and ALDA made the night just perfect for us, everything was flawless and they made sure we felt at home…and nothing feels better than celebrate in style with such a family.
We’ve wandered around the stages, danced with the best crowd in the world, stopped by at the famous radio dome and took our time to chat with our favorite artists, so stay tuned for our reports and interviews 🙂

Here we go with a brand new week, and what a week, we’d say!!! I know you got my hint already hehe, we’re all so hyped at the office today because it’s officially ASOT900’s week!!
As if this was not enough, we are so delighted that Armin decided to make it a super easy and pleasant kind of Monday releasing the club mix of his brand new tune ‘Lonely For You’,
Are you ready for it? Check it HERE!
From experimental pop song to mighty mainstage smash, ‘Lonely For You’ gets the club mix treatment everyone’s been waiting for. Ripe with edgy synths, thrilling melodies and Bonnie McKee’s wonderful vocals, this highly energetic version of Armin van Buuren’s latest single is bound to make the crowd fist-pump ’til the morning arrives.
Comme d’habitude, we love a good singing with you guys, so here we go with the lyrics:
Made it through another day
Don’t even the pain, it’s fading
I’ve been cleaning out my brain
I quit you like cocain, life changing
I start to panic when the sun goes down
I stay this jacked until the lights go out
I don’t want to go back home
Don’t want to be alone right now
No you’re never gonna see me cry
I already got a brand new life
Don’t you know I’m moving on
Everyday I’m stronger
I don’t even know you’re gone
Only lonely for you at night
Only lonely for you and the sun doesn’t shine
And I try to forget why
Why you’re not here by my side
Only lonely for you at night
Especially after a love-scented day as Valentine’s Day, it’s important not to forget that everyone deserves a bit of love. So, to warm the hearts of not only couples, but also of everyone still looking to find that special someone, Armin van Buuren has unleashed a brand-new single – and accompanying music video – that no amount of lit candles and rose petals can compete with: ‘Lonely For You’ (feat. Bonnie McKee).
An atypical love song so many people can draw strength from, Armin van Buuren’s ‘Lonely For You’ is empowering in its own unique way. Featuring Bonnie McKee’s dynamic and emotional vocals that blend superbly with the mash of poppy chords and drum and bass-inspired rhythms, this track puts Armin van Buuren’s experimental side in the limelight in the best possible way.
Armin van Buuren: “’Lonely For You’ was written with the lovely Bonnie McKee. For me, it resembles the struggles we all face with and in relationships, ups and downs. I think it was appropriate to release it around Valentine’s Day!”
Bonnie McKee: “Lonely For You’ is a song about recovering from losing someone, picking up the pieces and putting one foot in front of the other to move on from them – almost. Sometimes, we are able to logically talk ourselves out of loving someone, and even feel relieved that they’re gone…but in the lonely hours of darkness in the still of the night, those feelings can creep up from the shadows and suck us back into the trap of missing that someone, even if we know they’re not right for us.”
American singer-songwriter Bonnie McKee is no stranger to the upper reaches of the music industry. Throughout her blossoming career, she has (co-)written songs for global superstars such as Katy Perry (‘Part Of Me’, ‘Wide Awake’, ‘California Girls’, Teenage Dream’ and ‘Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)’), Taio Cruz (‘Dynamite’), Britney Spears (‘Hold It Against Me’), Elliot Yamin, Rita Ora, Ke$ha, Cheryl, Adam Lambert and Rusko. Now, she teams up with none other than Grammy-nominated, five-time #1 DJ in the world Armin van Buuren for a wonderful single that’s bound to ignite a fiery passion in listeners worldwide.
Lyrics:.Only lonely for you at nightOnly lonely for you and the sun doesn’t shineAnd I try to forget whyWhy you’re not here by my sideOnly lonely for you at nightMade it through another dayDon’t even the pain, it’s fadingI’ve been cleaning out my brainI quit you like cocain, life changingI start to panic when the sun goes downI stay this jacked until the lights go outI don’t want to go back homeDon’t want to be alone right nowNo you’re never gonna see me cryI already got a brand new lifeDon’t you know I’m moving onEveryday I’m strongerI don’t even know you’re goneOnly lonely for you at nightOnly lonely for you and the sun doesn’t shineAnd I try to forget whyWhy you’re not here by my sideOnly lonely for you at nightWide awake I’m in the darkThe spiral in my heart is stormingI just gotta close my eyesKnow that I’ll survive till morningI start to panic when the sun goes downI stay this jacked until the lights go outI just wanna call your phoneDon’t want to be alone right nowNo you’re never gonna see me cryI already got a brand new lifeDon’t you know I’m moving onEveryday I’m strongerI don’t even know you’re goneOnly lonely for you at nightOnly lonely for you and the sun doesn’tAnd I try to forget whyWhy you’re not here by my sideOnly lonely for you at night
