IN THE HOUSE
UMF TV Revisits 'A State Of Trance'

"When am I in a state of Trance? When I listen to a good track, a track that I really like. One that's energetic, euphoric, uplifting," said Armin van Buuren on the latest episode of UMF TV, which brings fans on a special revisit to 'A State Of Trance' at Ultra 2012 with none other than, Armin himself.

The feature focuses heavily on Trance music. The genre has exploded over the years and you can hear how it has grown from Armin, Dash Berlin, Sander van Doorn, Ferry Corsten, Cosmic Gate and Gareth Emery who all played at the arena.

Word has spread that Armin will be joining the festivites again at Ultra 2013 on both weekends but you can catch him first when he plays the show of a lifetime at Pier 36 in NYC on New Year's Eve! For tickets and more information click here.

COOL SHIT
Soundproof That Annoying Friend

Unattractive object right? Hey, looks aren't everything. You'll be thrilled to have this when the awkward friend of the group wants to start karaoking at the adult New Year's party.

If karaoke is an every weekend kind of hobby for them than you might have an issue. Needless to say, don't think your friend will notice what kind of microphone it is if the drinks are flowing.

Just hand them this soundproof microphone and even the most tone deaf entertaining-ish person will bring in the new year with the perfect tune.
