‘Off The Hook’ starts with with a massive lead and starts to build up into the big-room-esque drop. Dropping into what sounds like a part of the track Armin was not involved in. The next break really introduces the trance, its sounds like Hardwell made 0.00-2:30 and then Armin Van Buuren from 2:30 to 5:27.
Many trance fans are against this track saying it’s not trance and more like ‘trouse’ (trance + house). The track is a mix of both genres, if you don’t like a particular genre just skip that part, its not a big deal. In business terms mixing these genres will reach and appeal to a wider audience.
