Throwback Thursday: Gaia – Tuvan


Many of you may have witnessed the greatness of a Gaia set at EDC Las Vegas this past year or at Ultra Miami or another event. This side project of Armin van Buuren is not one that is new, but spans all the way back to the beginning of his career. This 2009 track from Gaia, “Tuvan”, is one of my personal favorites that has come out under the pseudonym of the king of trance. Not only is it well loved by many people but also Armin has said in the past that he considers it one of the ultimate trance tracks of all time. What do you think? Let us know in the comments!

Grant Gilmore’s authoritative voice as a media professional lends credibility not common to EDM journalism. As the founder of EDM Identity he has effectively raised the bar on coverage of the past decade’s biggest youth culture phenomenon. After ten years of working for nonprofit organization Pro Player Foundation, Gilmore launched EDM Identity as a media outlet offering accurate informative coverage of the rave scene and electronic music as a whole. Although they cover comprehensive topic matter, they have taken special care in interviewing the likes of Armin van Buuren, Adventure Club, Gorgon City, Lane 8 and Afrojack. In addition to household names, they have also highlighted unsung heroes of the industry through their ID Spotlight segment. Whether he’s covering it or not, you can expect to find Grant Gilmore attending the next big electronic music event. To find out what’s next on his itinerary, follow him via the social links below.
