Do you love Christmas music? Do you love Armin Van Buuren? Then you’re going to love his newest track, “Christmas Days.” DJ’s have been making holiday tunes for years, but Armin took a unique approach. Instead of making remixing a Christmas classic Armin and vocalist, Josh Cumbee, started from scratch and made something complexly their own. It was a risk for these are unchartered waters for the seasoned producer, but as you can see from the 2ok plays it’s received already, it has been extremely well received.
Armin already stands as a frontrunner in the scene and this bold and brave move solidifies him as an innovative and talented producer. He sheds light on this newest project with this sweet sentiment:
“A few weeks ago, someone from the office asked me if I had ever toyed with the idea of turning ‘Sunny Days’ into a Christmas song. A DJ releasing a Christmas carol is not something that easily comes to mind, but when I listened to ‘Sunny Days’ afterwards, I discovered that the lyrics do have some of that Christmas magic going for them.”
“Past Tuesday night, I spoke with the vocalist of ‘Sunny Days’, Josh Cumbee, who has become a good friend of mine. I shared the idea with him and when I woke up the next morning at 6 a.m., he had already sent me a first draft, based on an unreleased downtempo version of ‘Sunny Days’. I loved it so much that I immediately sent it over to my record label (Armada Music) and less than 24 hours later, ‘Christmas Days’ was born.”
