Dan Dobson

Releases on Armin’s A State of Trance

The last 12 months have been memorable for former SEM student, Dan Dobson. Since graduating from the Complete Music Production Course in 2012, Dan’s worked hard to hone his skills and in the process he’s successfully gained industry support from a selection of high profile performers.

Armin van Buuren is the latest household name to hail his praises, giving Dan Dobson’s new track ‘Fantome’ airtime on his weekly radio show ‘A State of Trance’ off the back of it being signed to his label. The grammy nominated DJ has been an influential front runner on the trance music scene for over 20 years and A State Of Trance radio show is broadcast each week to over 41 million listeners in 84 different countries. The show aired in 2001 and has become a must-listen for trance fans and for over 16 years has acted as a platform to showcase the biggest tunes of the moment.

We spoke to Dan about his latest release and the thought process that went into creating the new track.
