Armada Music, a titan in the dance music realm, marks its two-decade milestone with an exceptional remix album, “Armada Music – 20 Years (Remixed),” led by none other than Armin van Buuren.

This landmark compilation serves as a homage to Armada’s rich legacy, reimagining classics from the label’s extensive catalog through a contemporary lens. The standout feature is Armin van Buuren‘s remix of his 2023 hit, “This Is What It Feels Like,” featuring Trevor Guthrie.

Additionally, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano breathe new life into Afro Medusa’s “Pasilda,” adding a fresh perspective to the Afro-Cuban influences of the original.
