Armin van Buuren Responds To Underground Resistance’s Claims

Earlier this weekend, the Detroit techno collective Underground Resistance took to Facebook to show their disapproval with Armin van Buuren's new party residency called ‘U R.' The collective claimed that Armin van Buuren had plagiarized their name and logo for his upcoming Ibiza residency.

Armin van Buuren responded this morning claiming that U R had nothing to do with Underground Resistance. In fact, Armin van Buuren says that the concept came from Universal Religion. In his official statement, Armin van Buuren says “”The logo, which consists of a custom-made font and frame, was designed to conform with the Armin van Buuren brand. My team, the team of Hï/Ushuaïa and myself have decided to keep the name UR as it is and to adjust the symbol.”

Read the entire statement below:

“I would like to start off by saying how unfortunate and unpleasant this situation is for everyone involved. My team, the team of Hï/Ushuaïa and myself were not aware of the similarities between our logo and the logo of Underground Resistance. Originally, UR – the name of the new event through which I’ll perform in Ibiza every week – is derived from Universal Religion, an older but nonetheless known Armin van Buuren concept. The logo, which consists of a custom-made font and frame, was designed to conform with the Armin van Buuren brand. After careful deliberation, my team, the team of Hï/Ushuaïa and myself have decided to keep the name UR as it is and to adjust the symbol. I trust that media, fans and Underground Resistance will be able to understand this decision.”
