Sander van Doorn and Armin van Buuren, two illustrious electronic music vets, have joined forces for their first-ever original collaboration.

Premiered exclusively today by, "Jonson's Play" is a juggernaut of a trance track that rumbles with the explosive sound design of the Dutch dance titans. It features layers of gritty bass, which churn along through atmospheric soundscapes in a masterstroke of production. Techno elements are the driving force behind the new collab, lending to a hypnotic arrangement that will shake bodies from the US to Amsterdam.

"Jonson's Play" could not have come at a better time considering the upcoming ASOT1000 Festival, which is scheduled for September 3rd and 4th in celebration of the landmark 1,000th episode of van Buuren's historic A State Of Trance radio show.
