Galantis, a well known name in the EDM world, and they do not need an introduction. But even though I have heard their music before, their background was unknown to me. Turns out they are Swedish, and they already had a huge hit in the Netherlands with ‘Runaway (U & I)’, which appeared on the number 1 spot in the top 40. So there’s more to Sweden than just Ikea… interesting. Nah, I’m just kidding, ofcourse the Swedish have got so much to offer (I drive a Swedish car), but music wise the Swedish are also very succesful. Galantis can be counted as one succesful export product for Sweden. A good product.

Maybe I’ve missed it, and their Dutch Wikipedia page doesn’t mention it, but in many pictures I see cats. Why is that? If there are fans out there who know their pin codes, their shoe sizes, when they had their first kisses, etc, please let me know.

Anyway, back to this liveset. I saw an advert on Facebook about their tour, and after listening to it, the tune hit me hard, and I was wondering if Galantis had a liveset online. After browsing for 20 minutes I found a beautiful set I reckon you’ve already heard (327k+ plays, which is nothing compared to the millions of plays on their single tracks). If you haven’t, I think it’s time for you lot to make this wonderful Sunday the best one ever: light up the BBQ, turn up your speakers, have a few drinks in the fridge, and play this liveset.

The tracklist looks good. A lot of their own productions in here, and you can hear the crowd loosing themselves to the music. Listening to this is intoxicated. I’m liking this a lot.

This is the first time I heard a liveset by Galantis. Yes, I know they play all over the world, but I haven’t heard a set yet. This is the first, and it’s a good one. Quite addictive. I want to push the volume way up, and wave my hands in the air and stomp my feet. I can’t, it’s Sunday morning, but in the afternoon I will.

In all fairness, ‘Runaway’ is their biggest hit, and you can see it several times in this set, be it the original or a remixed version. But to me the catchiest tune is ‘Peanut Butter Jelly’. Sounds a bit like Armand van Helden, his style, his way of making music. And it’s so catchy, you can’t sit still. And also, it makes me crave a peanut butter jelly sandwich. And I want to watch Family Guy for a strange  reason now (if you don’t know, Brian does the dance, check it out).

The set is good, but to hear every so often that it’s broadcasted live and other bits and bobs kind of ruins the atmosphere. Never liked radio broadcasts, always add things which shouldn’t be there.

A very good set. I’m really digging it. Galantis, you’ve got a new fan. Sweden, I must come there. I will drive to Sweden with my Volvo, listening to a Galantis set whilst eating Ikea meatballs. I want to see what Sweden has to offer.

Make this Sunday the best one this year. Not downloadable, but still highly enjoyable. I’m going to see if there are still tickets left for their tour, want to experience Galantis myself, and not via my computer.

A lot of Hardwell for us to listen to. If you love Hardwell, and I know a lot of you do, this is a must have liveset on your computer or mobile device.

It’s common nowadays to do mashups, and Hardwell did quite a few. And there are quite a few amazing tracks in here. Too many to choose from, but my favourite tracks has got to be ‘Never Say Goodbye’, ‘Apollo’ and ‘Heroes’. Do you want to know why? Well, the vocalists have done an amazing job by putting their heart and souls into each track, and it’s like these tracks have been sung by angels. Beautiful vocals, the best part of these three tracks!

A lot of dancefloor slammers, and a few I just don’t like. But that’s personal. You might like to hear Lil Jon, but I don’t. Not a fan of this man at all. His voice ruins everything. And ‘Seven Nation Army’ has been played too many times, it’s overkill that makes this track not pleasant for my ears. But don’t let my opinion stand in your way, if you want to dance throughout the whole set, why not?

A brilliant set, and with three of the best tracks (acappella-versions) in it. He demolished the main stage, and he made sure that everyone who witnessed him, had a wicked time. You can also check out his set on Youtube, if you want to see him and everyone at Ultra.

There’s a reason why he’s number 1. And within 58 minutes he shows us all why he’s number 1.

Go on the world wide web, and you will find a lot of people still talking about Ultra Music Festival. It happened a couple of weeks ago in a sunny Miami, and according to those who went, it was amazing. If you are near a computer, you can witness several videos, and see how each and every DJ destroyed the dancefloors. The line-up was ridicilous, and if I had thousands of dollars, I would have flown over, but sadly I’m not made of money. I wish I was, seeing as you can now find a lot of livesets online, mostly on Soundcloud, and one of those sets caught my eye. It’s Armin van Buuren’s liveset, which took place on the sunday, recorded when he played his own area, A State Of Trance area. Thousands of Trance lovers watched Armin playing the finest tunes, and danced the night away.

Armin van Buuren doesn’t need an introduction. If he does, you are clearly not from this planet. Being number 1 DJ in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2012, he doesn’t need any introduction. The man behind A State Of Trance, a very talented producer and DJ, with a lot of his albums appearing in the Dutch Top 100 chart, and his singles have appeared in many lists all over the world. A well respected and well established name in the industry, Armin has achieved everything imaginable, and has played all over the globe (and still does). A name you won’t forget easily, which is a good thing. This man has been so succesful since day one, and he has dominated the world ever since. Why? Well, listen to his liveset, and you know why!

A fantastic DJ and producer, we all know that. Armin never disappoints, and at Ultra, he played the finest tunes, taking the crowd to the next level of euphoria. You can hear the crowd loosing it during his set, and there’s a good reason for that: the music is excellent! The tracklist I found isn’t complete, but worth looking at.

Am I the only one noticing a trend in EDM world? So many artists do mashups, a lot of mashups. Not pleasant for a reviewer, when there’s no option of copy-pasting!? I always thought that mashups were so 2003, but it seems that it’s back. Armin added a lot of his own mashups into his liveset, and it seemed to have done the trick: the crowd loved it (you can tell by the high pitched screams you hear during the recording).

The list has got a lot of Armin van Buuren tracks in it, which is always a good thing. In the past he has made a couple of minor tracks (well, according to me), but this one is filled with only the finest tunes. Pure Trance, and I love it. No nonsense. He doesn’t take any prisoners, he goes full on bezerk from the first second to the last. Armin knows exactly how to please the crowds all over the world, and the crowds in Miami are still amazed by the sets he played at Ultra. If you are listening to this and are gutted that you didn’t go, don’t worry: you can start saving money for Ultra’s next event (only if Armin is there).

I can say in all honesty that there’s nothing wrong with this mix, and that Armin proves yet again why he’s an award winning producer/DJ. A crowd pleaser, and whenever he touches the decks, the results are astonishing! Another brilliant liveset by the man who reinvented Trance music.

Best track in this set? They are all solid! I can’t pick.
