Passion and Discipline are the keys to Success for DJ Armin Van Buuren
May 22, 2009 - In an interview with the The Music Producer’s CEO Whitney Belker at the Winter Music Conference in Miami Beach, FL, DJ extraordinaire Armin van Buuren, placed aside his earphone and lowered the music to make time to open up and share a piece of what makes him top in his class. The prestigious DJ Top 100 poll– voted for by over 350,000 people across the world- has named van Buuren number one DJ, two years in a row. “I’m still very much a kid in that club. I still get very emotional when I hear a track. The goal is to play great music for great people.”
How did he get to where he is and how does he manage to stay there? Very simple: Dedication, openness, passion for the music he creates and respect for his audience. “Listen to everything… You have to be open and understand why other people like that track and why it has become so popular.” This dedication has not only served van Buuren in the clubs and in the studios, some may be surprised to know that this popular DJ also holds a Law degree and has always been drug free. He says he had a strict rule of not getting to his studio before 1pm, in order to have study time.
Since he was a teenager, van Buuren began taping radio shows because he was not old enough to go the clubs. Currently, van Buuren has his own 2 hour radio show and has dedicated ample time to producing over four hundred episodes. He explains that he made a commitment to produce this show come rain or shine and just gets it done and makes it happen. Like a true DJ, this sometimes takes place at three or four in the morning.
He also has many goals he would like to accomplish in the future, for example, work with Enya, Sarah McGlaughlin, and “play at Wimble Stadium for kids encouraging them to follow their passions in life.” Promoting self-expression, entrepreneurship and activism through music is what the Music Producer is all about, and a view that Van Bureen shares. Belker stated,hIt would be an honor to collaborate with van Buuren. I admire his music knowledge, business sense and desire to make a difference in the world through creative self expression.h Is there a venture between the Music Producer and van Buuren in the near future? Stay tuned.
