If you aren't familiar with the legendary, Grammy nominated artist, Armin Van Buuren, or Armin for short, you will be now. Electronic dance music has been making all the big headlines at award shows and chart-topping lists geared towards music and Armin just set the bar really high for all his predecessors. While many EDM artists, whether it may be Trance, House or Dubstep, are gaining quick recognition for single EP releases and hit remixes, Armin is solidifying his position amongst top artists and musicians across borders.
Armin Van Buuren sets the record for the most tally's on Billboard's 'Dance/Electronic Albums Chart' with his recent debut of his album, "A State of Trance Year Mix 2013." This specific album landed at the No. 21 spot, but it's also his 10th charted title within his "State of Trance" series to make it on the list. In the grand scheme of things, this marks Armin's 20th charted album in total, surpassing Louie DeVito by a single tally.
