Armin van Buuren wins world’s best DJ award



Dutch trance DJ Armin van Buuren has just won Best Global DJ award at the International Dance Music Awards (IDMA) in Miami, US. His record label Armada also won Best Record Label for the second year in a row. At last year’s awards, Van Buuren won Best European DJ and Best Podcast.

World-famous DJ Tiësto who won Best Global DJ in 2008 and 2009, as well as a total of four awards in 2009 probably picked up something this year (winners not yet officially announced as I write this), while Ferry Corsten was nominated as Best European DJ and nominated in other categories.

There is something to be said about the Dutch and DJing even just looking at the IDMA nominees for 2010: Van Buuren, Tiësto and Corsten as well as Laidback Luke, Sander van Doorn and Joris Voorn are all Dutch and some of them have been nominated in more than one category.

I saw Armin van Buuren live at Dance Valley in 2009 and although I am not a fan of his work per se, he really knew how to please his audience.
