Popular in his ‘Armin Only – Intense’ tours, ‘Ping Pong’ has already been played for tens of thousands of clubbers around the world. What began as a song exclusively meant for Armin’s live shows, became popular and finally got its release this week on Armada.
Since its inception, ‘Ping Pong’ has already been championed by Hardwell, Danny Howard, David Guetta, Dash Berlin, Nicky Romero, W&W, Bingo Players, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Ferry Corsten, Style Of Eye, Ivan Gough, and many more. The song has already seen extensive radio support, with Hardwell and Simon Patterson remixes arriving soon.
Armin crafted the song to be a decidedly lo-fi moment in a show otherwise filled with technical wizardry. His fascination with the classic video game PONG lead to an idea that would eventually snowball into the production it is today. Fans of Armin Only will probably remember the Ping Pong segment of the show, with the dance, yellow smiley face balloons dropping from the sky, and lighthearted atmosphere that goes along with the track.
Look out for it on the forthcoming ‘A State Of Trance 2014’ compilation that is out 28 March. Have a listen below.
