While fans of trance music in India swear by Armin van Buuren, looks like the world renowned DJ is a fan of apna Arijit Singh. A source tells mid-day that the Dutch DJ recently played Singh's hit track, Tum Hi Ho from Aashiqui 2 (2013), during the latest episode of his weekly radio show, A State Of Trance. This is the first time that an Indian number has featured on the show that kick-started in 2001 and boasts of over 37 million listeners every week.
"It's rare to hear an Indian tune on an international show that has trance lovers from all over the globe. Armin had British electronic music producer Gareth Emery for company as the two rehashed the Bollywood chartbuster," says the source. Before playing the chartbuster, Buuren said that it was dedicated to all his Indian fans. He said, "A little surprise for the Indian fans of the show – Indian superstar, Arijit Singh, with Tum Hi Ho remix by none other than Gareth Emery."

Interestingly, Buuren may just meet the man behind the romantic ballad next month as the two are part of the Enchanted Valley Carnival's (EVC) line-up in Mumbai. While the record producer will hit the stage on December 16, Singh's gig is lined up for December 17. Speculations are rife that Buuren might spin Singh's Bollywood chartbusters for his Indian fans.
