Global trance icon and the only five-time DJ Mag #1 Armin Van Buuren played "Carnation," a new track from his Gaia side project, on his A State of Trance radio show. Under the Gaia moniker, he and long-time co-producer Benno De Goeij release and perform "pure trance" of a higher BPM than that of the contemporary trance characteristic of Van Burren's sets. 

When performing, the two have taken to donning cloaks only adding to the mystique of their true-to-their-roots stage persona. While he and De Goeij performed as Gaia on the ASOT Arena stage at last year's festivities, Van Buuren will perform two sets of his own at Ultra Music Festival later this month. 

"Carnation" will be gifted as an immediate bonus track for anyone who pre-orders A State of Trance 15.
