A State of Trance (often abbreviated as ASOT) is the title of a weekly radio show (every Thursday at 20:00 (CET), 7pm (UK Time), 2pm (EST)) hosted by prominent trance DJ and producer Armin van Buuren. First airing in March 2001 on ID&T Radio (the predecessor of Slam!FM), the show takes the format of a two hour mix in which he plays new trance music (uplifting trance and progressive trance), both promotional and commercially released. Selected tracks are announced during the show in order to help promote new artists and releases. Its radio-show/website combination has proven popular internationally, as fans—while listening to the radio-show—will converse in the website chat-rooms and forums, such as Digitally Imported, during the broadcast. Progressive trance and uplifting trance producers all submit promotional and commercially released tracks to compete to make it onto the playlist of the show each week. The success of the show has also spawned to include several dance events around the world. The show is celebrated live each year in different locations around the globe with a lineup consisting of many trance artists.

Broadcasts[edit]

When ID&T Radio changed genres at the end of January 2005, A State Of Trance was removed from their line-up. The show is currently broadcast on the following radio stations:[1]

On Demand[edit]

DI.FM hosts each weekly A State Of Trance show for their On Demand service. The show is streamed in multiple formats: 256 kbit/s (MP3), 128 kbit/s (AAC), 128 kbit/s and 64 kbit/s (Windows Media), 64 kbit/s and 32 kbit/s (AAC+) for users with the paid Premium package, and free at 96 kbit/s (MP3), 24 kbit/s (AAC+), 40 kbit/s (Windows Media).

Digitally Imported postponed the development of its onDemand feature as of 10 August 2010. This service is therefore currently unavailable. However, they do have plans to bring it back in the future as a more substantial service.[3]

Episodes of A State of Trance are also widely recorded and redistributed in MP3 format on filehosting websites such as Rapidshare, YouTube, private FTP servers and BitTorrent sites. File quality ranges from 192 kbit/s to 320 kbit/s (source file), however, 192 kbit/s is the most common due to the wide (and free) availability of 192 kbit/s source streams as well as the relatively small file size (~180 mb per episode).

In September 2012, A State of Trance was made available to stream on Spotify[4]

Special episodes[edit]

Occasional episodes feature guest DJs and/or live broadcasts. These were known as 'XXL' episodes, due to their longer than usual length.

Regular features[edit]

Each broadcast features three songs selected as Tune of the Week, Future Favourite and ASOT Radio Classic.

Tune of the Week[edit]

The Tune of the Week is selected by Armin van Buuren as his personal choice of best new tune in the show.

Future Favorite[edit]

The Future Favorite is voted for by listeners from a list of new tunes from the previous week's show. The poll takes place at A State of Trance.

ASOT Radio Classic[edit]

The ASOT Radio Classic track has been part of the show since Episode 284. Armin selects a track from past years of trance and briefly describes what made the track a classic. It is played as the last track of the show. Armin also played a classic track on each of the first 16 episodes in the early days of the radio show. These tracks were productions from the 1990s and showcased some of the very earliest pioneers of the Trance genre.

Armin asks the listeners of A State of Trance to submit original suggestions for the ASOT Radio Classic with the stipulation that the track not be a track already played on ASOT as a Classic. The following table lists all classics played on A State of Trance from Episode 284 to the present:

"A State of Trance Official Episode List"

Legacy[edit]

While it was not the first radio show to broadcast a two-hour mix from a recurring DJ, A State of Trance's legacy has arguably extended beyond the trance scene. Part of this may be due to the fact that for most parts of the world, A State of Trance was only accessible via Digitally Imported, an internet radio station. Since A State of Trance has gone on the air, numerous DJ's have created their own radio programs out of the spirit of A State of Trance. Some of which include, Above & Beyond with Trance Around the World (now rebranded as Group Therapy), Aly & Fila with the Future Sound of Egypt, and Markus Schulz with the Global DJ Broadcast. Some radio shows that don't even play trance music have spawned out of the spirit of A State of Trance (such as Carl Cox's Global, Hardwell on Air, and Nicky Romero's Protocol, just to name a few).

In March 2011 during the Ultra Music Festival, A State of Trance was given its own stage as part of its 500th episode tour. This was the first time a radio show was given its own tent at a music festival, along with its own broadcast, separate from the festival's official broadcast. Typically a festival stage is hosted by either a particular style of music, or a record label. Since Ultra 2011, A State of Trance has had its own arena at Ultra and the Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas.

Since ID&T's shift from trance to house music, A State of Trance's annual episodic celebrations have effectively replaced Trance Energy (now simply called Energy, focusing on electro house instead of trance) as the pinnacle trance event in The Netherlands.

Compilation series[edit]

Armin van Buuren regularly releases double mix CD "A State of Trance" compilations, as listed below:

Armin van Buuren also regularly releases double mix CD "A State of Trance Year Mix" compilations:

Armin van Buuren also releases double mix CD "A State of Trance Ibiza" compilations:

A release of 4-CD unmixed compilations of "A State of Trance Classics" has occurred annually since 2006:

These consist of unedited, full length tracks, in either the original or most popular mix, and state that they are from "uncompressed masters". Despite being called "Classics", the criteria for inclusion weighs heavily towards the difficulty of finding uncompressed digital copies of tracks and as such relatively recent tracks which were vinyl-only or on small record labels have featured.
