The British DJ Mag Top 100 poll revealed that Armin van Buuren has been voted number one DJ for the second year in a row. Every year the magazine classifies the best DJs in the world.
Armin van Buuren has been listed in the DJ Mag Top 100 since 2001, when he entered the poll at the 27th position. In 2002 he climbed up to the 5th position, and in 2003, 2004 and 2005 he was listed at the third spot. In 2006 he moved up to the second place, until eventually in 2007 he topped the Poll with a number one position. And this year he did it again!
“For me this is an incredible honour, because it’s an award from the votes of so many dance music lovers that went online to vote. I‘d like to take the opportunity to thank everyone for their support. I could have never done this without the help of so many people. My management, David Lewis Productions, Armada & Cloud 9. Thanks to DJ Mag for an incredible year, thanks to all clubbers, fans, promoters, club owners, magazines, websites, radio stations, record labels, etcetera. Thank you!”
2007 and 2008 have undoubtedly been two of the busiest, yet exciting years for Armin van Buuren. Next to hosting his award winning, weekly radio show ‘A State of Trance’, which is being broadcasted to across 40 FM stations around the world and with an estimated 25 million listeners, Armin has released his third artist album ‘Imagine’.
The album entered the Dutch album chart with a number one position, and was therefore the first dance album in Dutch music history to ever achieve that. Armin also toured the world with his ‘Armin Only: Imagine’ concerts, with the sold out first edition in the Jaarbeurs venue in Utrecht, providing more than 16.000 party people a stunning show and exclusive 9 hour set.

With 21 imprints residing under Armada and over 1500 releases, Armada has definitely proven to be working hard and after five years still feel passionate for top quality music.
