350 Best of the Best Trance Songs. Submitted by AlacritMusic on Wed, 08/16/2006 - 05:03. This list is my (AlacritMusic's) depiction on what are the best of the best trance songs. It will always be changing because I will always find more euphoric songs to judge.
It's true, trance will never be the same as it used to be, but there's always room for another wave that'll surprise the masses. Listology currently has about 500,000 "best-of-trance" lists and they're all different. Mine's nothing special and doesn't stand out from the masses. I'll let the readers be the judges on how accurate everyone's depictions are. And no, that doesn't mean I'll change my list according to what some random commenter thinks about this song and that song. People really have lost the meaning to what trance music used to be.
Huge dance music record labels have pointed current "trance music" to be way too similar to house and pop-dance. There's actually very little "trance" music that can put one into a "trance" upon listening these days.
Another problem with the death of this genre is that replacement pop infused "trance" music is dulling down the public's attention span and candy coating it too much. No one is patient enough to listen to a classic trance song anymore. Everyone just wants to dance, sing along, and look sexy in the process.
That's fine. Things die. But I suggest you people stop using the word "trance. " You're annoying. Feedback and suggestions are always welcome and respected- most of the time. But really give it some thought if you have something in mind. Please realize that even if you PUT YOUR ENTIRE MESSAGE IN CAPS LOCK, it won't increase the importance of the "best song in the universe that has to be on this list and I'm an absolute ignoramus for not knowing about it.

" I'll probably ignore your suggestion, as well as your life. Hybrid - Symphony (1997) (Breaktrance/Symphonic Trance) No need to think about it any longer, this is indisputably the most moving, mind soothing, indestructable piece of ear candy trance music has ever touched with its golden fingers. and it isn't even straight-forward trance itself. I heard this song on Sasha & Digweed's Northern Exposure Volume 2: East Coast edition, immediately following Gus Gus's "Purple" (also another FAVORITE trance song). Not only was the transition between the two songs perfect, but this song made for an astounding finale for the mix.
It's breaktrance perfection. Hybrid also did "Finished Symphony" two years later, but this track takes the cake, there was nothing unfinished about this one. L.

No need to get so deep, notin quite like a motherfuckin techno beat. Не надо копать слишком уж глубоко, не больше чем чертов техно бит. A techno beat, A.
- Netherworld (Vinyl Cut) (1997) (Progressive Trance) This song is absolutely delicious. The rhythm has a heavy, demanding tone that seems to need answering, and receives it through melodic progressions. To me, this song is like a sensual and erotic music beast that blows out trancesque proportions from one's speakers into another's brainwaves.
It's practically selfish. And I'm addicted like the pig I should be. Holden & Thompson - Nothing (93 Returning Mix) (2003) (Post Progressive/Minimal Trance) Absolutely breathtaking. I still haven't heard anything like this, other than Holden's "Horizons" from 1999, which puts on the same incredible haunting atmosphere. There are vocals, but don't try to decipher them, rather difficult, but the vocals put on their own euphoric melody. A nine minute song that seems to fly by as if it were an edit.
I play this song a lot for people that are unfamiliar with quite a bit of EDM music. The most common reaction is ". woah, this is definitely different, and I can't help but like this, a lot. ". Future Sound of London - Papua New Guinea (1991) (Ambient Breaks) Okay, the version that ranks the song here is the 6 minute, 45 second version on FSOL's Accelerator compilation. I understand there are edits out there that sound lovely as well, but the ambient progressions that build up into the alluring breakbeat jem this song lives up to is what got it to top this chart.
Simply gorgeous ear candy. Age of Love - Age of Love (1990) (Classic Trance/New Beat) Most commonly known as the song that signified the "big bang" of trance. Which is arguable. Endlessly arguable.
And there will never be an answer because people will always argue about that. The first song (in question) to open the door for the massive trance genre. But besides that, I put it uber-high on my personal favorites list due to the fact that there is no amount of repetition when listening to this song, and the layout seems to keep one guessing.
A notable remix would be 1992's Jam & Spoon's Watch Out For Stella Remix. Amazing remix, accept for the head splitting acid tone that doesn't seem to want to stop and give my ears a breather. Sasha - Wavy Gravy (2002) (Ambient Trance/Breaks) Okay so I thought of this song as ambient breaktrance, but it really isn't, because it doesn't have a breakbeat sound at all.
It just doesn't have a 4/4 beat like most trance. But it's still incredibly beautiful and doesn't change rankings. If you have a good listener's imagination, then picture that this is what happens to acid if you push it deep underwater. Humate - Love Stimulation (Paul Van Dyk's Love Mix) (1994) (Classic/Ibiza Trance) My favorite ibiza trance jewel. This song's pounding piano anthem loops, echoes and blends into itself until its smooth atmosphere is overwhelming.
Solid proof that Paul Van Dyk's first pieces will always be his best. Energy 52 - Café Del Mar (Three N One Remix) (1998) (Anthem Trance) "Cafe Del Mar" came out as a classic trance song in 1993. In my opinion, the original mix sounded very progressive housey, with a questionable beat when compared to other classic trance. The Kid Paul Mix which came out the same year was much better, and actually sounded like classic and/or acid trance; that version's also on this list, just much lower than this one. In 1998, the Three N One version changed the song and gave it a complete turnaround, transforming it from the classic trance piece it originated from into the beautiful looped eurotrance piece it was waiting to be. Most eurotrance remakes aren't stimulating at all, and the originals are always the best, but this is one highly regarded exception. Deadmau5 (who, I'm sure, will become just as overwhelmingly advertised, overplayed and overrated as Tiesto someday soon) did a remix of this song in 2008 that grew on me.
Chicane - Offshore (1996) (Ibiza Trance) This song symbolifies everything that brings the idea of ibiza trance into existence. You can literally smell the fresh air of the Mediterranean Sea filling your nostrils. It's smooth. And I have to comment about the end of this song, when it transforms itself into ibiza breaktrance- it's like candy. Like. literally sweet sugar to my ears. Try acquiring the ambient version as well.
L. - Hearts (1994) (Classic Trance) In my listening experience with trance (which in most aspects isn't much of a view to base anything off of except personal opinion. ), I find that classic trance introduced the trippy "space" feeling more than any other form of trance that evolved from it. Out of all of the successful pieces that floated around the dancefloors, this particular song stuck out as one that not only fulfilled an outerworldly feeling that experimented from other electronic genres. but when the rhythm breaks off and nothing remains but a haunting second melody, it fulfills a perfect feeling of uplift.
I find this song much more euphoric than any other classic or acid trance piece I've come across yet. Ame - Rej (2005) (Neo Trance) This song starts out quite simple, yet very dark and mysterious.
It progresses into a complex and vicious ultra-dark melody, yet never loses the icey-cool smooth touch. Perfectly luscious. I find it styled very gothic cyberpunk. Union Jack - Red Herring (1995) (Acid Trance). Orbital - Halcyon On & On (1993) (Ambient Techno). Infected Mushroom - Mush Mushi (2000) (Psytrance). Hallucinogen - L.
(1996) (Goa Trance). Underworld - Cowgirl (1994) (Classic Trance/Progressive House) Underworld. What a fucking amazing group.
This song kicks you in the ass. It starts out with an awkward progression of layers consisting of a man's voice (Completely different than how the voice progresses in "Born Slippy"). It ends up being a hard and heavy monster, that blows your head off with a killer insane vibraphone melody. Ogenki Clinic - First Light (James Holden vs. Main Element Remix) (2001) (Progressive Minimal Trance) I love the bassline this song jumps into right at the start. It naturally makes you want to get up and groove.
A minimal tribal beat with some seriously smooth melodies, its one of those pieces that can be a cooldown or a floorfiller. James Holden - Horizons (1999) (Progressive Minimal Trance) A song that "wowed" me with its breakdown. The melody is but a hush. resembling somewhat of a "trance fog" (am I insane for comparing the main melody to fog?).
Beautiful progressions. Perfect song to close your eyes to and get lost in your mind. Sasha - Bloodlock (2002) (Progressive Trance) Almost in the style of a James Holden composition (well yeah- he co-produced it, adurrr), the beginning introduces a purely minimalesque buildup, with a beautiful euphoric melody system. Even the breakdowns are exotically gorgeous. Seriously, with "Bloodlock," "Wavy Gravy," and several other songs with this distinct atmosphere, Airdrawndagger is easily one of my favorite albums. Petter - These Days (2004) (Ambient Progressive Breaks) If you've by any chance acquired Sasha's "Wavy Gravy," and fell inlove with it, but haven't acquired this one yet, I strongly recommend it. It offers the same uplifting experience in my opinion.
Sasha - XPander (1999) (Progressive Trance). Space Manoeuvres - Stage One (Total Separation Mix) (1999) (Progressive House/Breaktrance?). Nalin & Kane - Beachball (1996) (Ibiza Trance). DnTel - (This is) The Dream of Evan and Chan (Superpitcher Kompakt Remix) (2002) (Neo/Minimal Trance/Microhouse) Beautiful vocals by Ben Gibbard, also the lead singer to the band Death Cab For Cutie and the project The Postal Service.
It's rare and almost extinct-able that a trance song has an even blend of musical euphoria and strong lyrics. This song destroys boundaries. Lost Tribe - Gamemasters / My Soul (1997) (Progressive Trance) Uh, have you HEARD the amount of acid layers in this song. It gives me utter tingles and chills.
Yeah yeah, I know its basis is that of Quench's "Dreams," but the point here is that it just builds and builds until it's something catastrophically different. Evolved until things are serious. And things here are pretty much serious. Except for those spoken lyrics, but hey, they actually get you caught up in the song as well. Also, Lost Tribe released this EP with "Angel" and another song included called "My Soul," which is basically the same song except with different lyrics, and an extremely epic piano synth added on top of all of the acid.
I could take this song or leave it, it's just another good one to be mentioned. Aril Brikha - Winter (2007) (Neo Trance). Brainchild - Synfonica (1993) (Classic Trance). Art of Trance - Deeper Than Deep (1993) (Acid Trance). Solar Stone - Seven Cities (Stone’s Atlantis Mix) (1999) (Ibiza Trance) I love this song. It's so dreamy- its like a complete chill out/world beat song with a solid trance rhythm. Capable of both penetrating a concentrated rave atmosphere and soothing a segment on a Pure Moods compilation.
Gus Gus - Purple (Sasha vs. The Light Remix) (1998) (Progressive Breaktrance). 4Voice - Eternal Spirit (1993) (Classic/Acid Trance) Think KayCee's "Escape" is one of the greatest trance songs you've ever heard? You haven't heard of this song then. Think again. Efdemin - Lohn & Brot (2006) (Neo Trance) Like Ame's "Rej," this song slowly progresses into a lovely melodious complex, although not nearly as dark and vicious by the end.
Still, very beautiful, and well worth the incentive of listening to once acquired. The Field - Over the Ice (2006) (Neo Trance/Minimal Techno). Gabriel Ananda - Ihre Persönliche Glücksmelodie (2005) (Neo Trance).
Nathan Fake - The Sky Was Pink (James Holden Remix) (2004) (Neo/Minimal Trance). Ultraviolet - Kites (Fantasy Flite Part One) (1991) (Ambient Breaks/Breaktrance) So, I looked this up on Discogs, and the actual "Fantasy Flight 1" version of this song came out in 1991, the original version in 1990. That makes it just about as classic as Age of Love, Dance 2 Trance, and Future Sound. Perhaps the first breaktrance song in question? Lovely vocals by Maria (also presently in question). There's also an instrumental version of this song done by Ultraviolet, under the title of "Fly," released at the same period. Cybernaut - Hydrophonix (1997) (Goa Trance).
Bedrock feat. Kyo - For What You Dream Of (1993) (Classic Trance/Progressive House). Dance 2 Trance - We Came In Peace (1990) (Classic Trance). Infected Mushroom - Ratio Schmatio (2004) (PsyTrance).
The MFA - The Difference It Makes (2004) (Neo Trance). William Orbit - Water from a Wine Leaf (Xylem Flow Mix) (1992) (Progressive/Ambient House) Whoever thinks William Orbit's "Water from a Wine Leaf" is strictly ambient house has NOT heard Spooky's Xylem Flow Remix. It gives the song a unique progressive house beat and a hint of acid, turning the pupa of an ambient house song it used to be into the butterfly it always wanted to be.
The song is, however, progressive house, due to the fact that the BPM is much slower than that of all classic trance at the time. But that doesn't stop me from putting it on this list. Humate & Rabbit in the Moon - East (Rabbit In The Moon Opium Den Remix) (1995) (Classic/Acid Trance). ATB - Don’t Stop (X-Cabs Remix) (1998) (Ibiza Trance) SO much better than the original. This version rips it away from the oldskool ATB Ibiza feel (the original sounded like a remix to both "9 PM" and "The Summer") and shoves it into a more uptempo tropical atmosphere. Drool. Kate Havnenik - Unlike Me (Ost & Kjex Remix) (2006) (Glitch/Neo Trance/Progressive House) I ran into this by accident just browsing iTunes.
You have to get the 8 minute version off of Kate Havnevik's EP "Unlike Me. " It grows on me more and more everytime I hear it. It progresses beautifully. The song issues a ballad atmosphere in the beginning (much like the original version), and by the end it breaks into something much more danceable, but still keeps the same deep and chilling sensations. I also love how her voice is obstructed into the rhythm. This is so much more than just a remix.
Strongly recommended by me. Brainchild - Symmetry (C-Mix) (1994) (Classic Trance). Paragliders - Paraglide (1993) (Classic Trance).
Metal Master - Spectrum (1992) (Classic Trance). X Tracks - Plan 94 (The Voyage) (1994) (Progressive House). Roland Klinkenberg - Inner Laugh (James Holden Remix) (2000) (Progressive Minimal Trance). Balil - Parasight (1993) (Acid/Classic Trance). Hardfloor - Acperience 1 (1992) (Acid Trance). Orbital - Remind (1993) (Rave/Acid Trance).
Resistance D - Cosmic Love (1991) (Acid Trance). Stefan Goldmann - Sleepy Hollow (2006) (Neo Trance/Microhouse).
Rabbit In The Moon - Out of Body Experience (Phase 1 - First Contact) (1994) (Classic/Acid Trance). Faithless - Drifting Away (The Full Paradiso Remix) (1997) (Anthem House/Progressive House) I think this version of the song, at all costs, is put together beautifully. Starting out as an operatic ballad, the song progresses slowly for about a minute and a half, when suddenly the pounding piano anthem seers into the picture. The song altogether is quite progressive, and indeed very soothing.
The Orb - Little Fluffy Clouds (1990) (Ambient House). Torley Wong - Xristophan (2005) (Ambient Breaks?) Formerly and (unfortunately) more commonly known (to the music THIEVES!) as "Robert Miles vs. Aphex Twin - Rare Duet. " Mysterious error solved. Cosmic Baby - Magic Cubes (1992) (Classic Trance).
Petter - Some Polyphony (James Holden Remix) (2006) (Minimal/Neo Trance). Jonas Steur - Silent Waves (2004) (Epic Trance). Telepopmusik - Breathe (Original Album Version) (2001) (Post Progressive Trance/Ambient Trance) Alot of people probably acquire shock seeing this song so high on a trance list, but I find it to be one of the most soothing ambient pop songs out there, therefore making it one of my close favorites. Banco De Gaia - Heliopolis (1993) (Ambient/Classic/Acid Trance). Holden & Thompson - Come to Me (Original Mix) (2005) (Post Progressive Trance). Jam & Spoon - Stella (1992) (Classic/Ibiza Trance). Art of Trance - Madagascar (Cygnus X Remix) (1999) (Anthem Trance).
Astral Projection - Aurora Borealis (2000) (Goa Trance). Spicelab - We Got Spice (Spicelab Full Flavour Mix) (1994) (Acid Trance). Cybordelics - Adventures of Dama (1993) (Classic Trance). L. - Fragile (1994) (Classic Trance) Much similar content to L.
's "Hearts," and may even put on a similar feel in being both euphoric and spaceous, but I think "Hearts" is a much MUCH better track. Paul Van Dyk - My World (1994) (Classic/Epic Trance) Okay, I need some help classifying this one. "For An Angel" was produced in 1994 as well, a time when classic trance was huge, but has a sound that epic trance produces. Epic and classic are two complete ends of a spectrum, yet this one seems to hit both areas, perhaps it just fits in both. Underworld - Dark Train (1994) (Classic Trance). Commander Tom - Are Am Eye? (1995) (Classic/Hard Trance) Classic trance = trippy space music? I feel as if I'm being attacked by aliens when listening to this song. Aaaahhhh.
Astral Projection - Mahadeva (1995) (Goa Trance). Zyon - No Fate (No Fate Edit) (1992) (Classic Trance) There's also a "Struggle Continues Mix" to this song, which puts it at a much slower tempo, (that being the most significant alteration between the two song versions) and I personally don't like it as much, due to the fact that the slower pace makes it sound alot more like dream trance (yes, the main melody of this song is piano). The No Fate Edit version is much faster, and the style is much crisper and has a mood to fit most classic trance, although shorter. Push - Strange World (1999) (Anthem Trance).
Way Out West - Mindcircus (Gabriel & Dresden Remix) (2002) (Post Progressive Trance) Nothing like the original version. Gabriel & Dresden transform this progressive breakbeat song into a haunting ghostlike reconstruction.
The main piano melody that primarily makes the song recognizable is morphed into an acidic disoriented piano hybrid noise. I personally recommend this version over the original, although the original is still quite delightful. PQM - You Are Sleeping (Luke Chable Meets the PQM Vocal Pass) (2004) (Progressive Minimal Trance). Paul Van Dyk - For an Angel (1994) (Epic Trance).
The Thrillseekers - Synaethesia (2001) (Epic/Vocal Trance). Cass & Slide - Perception (New Vocal Mix) (2000) (Vocal Trance). Binary Finary - 1998 (Paul Van Dyk Remix) (1997) (Anthem Trance) This is what it sounds like when eurotrance kicks you in the face with millions of layers of acid.
;] CORRECTION: Just kidding. It's just millions of synths, with an acid bassline, corrupting the whole piece to make it all sound like acid, which is still cool sounding.
Trilithon - Trance Dance (1991) (Goa Trance). BT - Flaming June (1997) (Progressive Trance). Leama - Requiem For A Dream (Leama’s Dream Remix) (2003) (Ambient Trance). Gui Boratto - Beautiful Life (2007) (Neo Trance).
James Holden - A Break in the Clouds (2002) (Post Progressive Trance). Patrick Chardronnet - Eve By Day (Ripperton's Lovelee Dae Mix) (2005) (Neo Trance).
Union Jack - Cockroach (1997) (Progressive/Acid Trance). Almost Goa-esque. A lovely dip in an acid bath.
Underworld - Born Slippy (NUXX) (1995) (Classic Trance/Tribal Tech Trance). Datura - Yerba Del Diablo (1992) (Classic Trance). Rabbit in the Moon - Out of Body Experience (Phase 9 - Lunar Eclipse) (1994) (Acid Trance).
Union Jack - Morning Glory (1994) (Classic/Acid Trance). Moonbeam - Sunshine (2007) (Neo Trance). Roland Appel - Dark Soldier (2007) (Neo Trance). Moonbeam - Eclipse (2007) (Neo Trance).
James Holden - I Have Put Out The Light (2002) (Progressive Minimal Trance). DJ Tiesto - Sparkles (Transa Remix) (1999) (Anthem Trance) AMAZING remix compared to the original song.
The original song did near to nothing for me. The anthem all in all is basic, but quite powerful and hypnotic, much MUCH more than the original version, thus me ranking this so high.
Banco De Gaia - Last Train To Lhasa (1995) (Progressive/Ambient House). Salt Tank - Eugina (1996) (Ibiza Trance). Loken - Monday A. (2003) (Anthem Trance). Choice - Acid Eiffel (1993) (Acid Techno). BT - Dreaming (2000) (Progressive/Vocal Trance).
Underworld - Second Hand (1994) (Progressive Ambient Trance). 4 Strings - Sunrise (2005) (Epic Trance). Gouryella - Gouryella (1999) (Anthem Trance). Gabriel & Dresden - Arcadia (2005) (Post Progressive Trance). Union Jack - Two Full Moons and a Trout (1993) (Classic/Progressive Trance). Gabriel & Dresden - Dangerous Power (2006) (Post Progressive Trance).
Motorcycle - As the Rush Comes (Gabriel & Dresden Sweeping Strings Mix) (2003) (Post Progressive Trance) The Gabriel & Dresden Sweeping Strings Mix is the same as the Original Mix. Someone just had a problem with me leaving that part out, so there it sits. DJ Quicksilver - Bellissima (1996) (Anthem Trance). Haylon - Starfighter (Jonas Steur Remix) (2005) (Epic Trance). Atlantic Ocean - Waterfall (1994) (Anthem House). Orbital - Belfast (1992) (Ambient Dance/Breaks?).
Armin Van Buuren - Blue Fear (1996) (Progressive Trance). Sasha - Golden Arm (2002) (Progressive Trance). Moogwai - Viola (Original Mix) (2001) (Anthem Trance) I had this song down under Armin Van Buuren's remix until I heard the 9 minute original. You don't need no stinkin remix to make this song sound anymore alluring than it already is! I love it. Beanfield feat. Bajka - Tides (C's Movement #1) (2004) (Minimal/Neo Trance). PPK - Resurrection (2001) (Progressive Trance).
Shakta - Lepton Head III (1999) (Goa Trance). Rabbit In The Moon - Out of Body Experience (Phase 3 - Burning Spear) (1994) (Ambient Breaks). Interrupt - Upside Down (1995) (Hard Acid Trance). Barbarella - My Name is Barbarella (1992) (Classic Trance).
Above & Beyond - No One On Earth (Gabriel & Dresden Mix) (2004) (Post Progressive Trance). Veracocha - Carte Blanche (1998) (Anthem Trance). Leftfield - Phat Planet (1999) (Progressive House). Shakta - Lepton Head (Deedrah Remix) (1996) (Goa Trance). Three Drives - Greece 2000 (1997) (Progressive Trance). Ominus - Acid Tester (1996) (Goa Trance).
Imogen Heap - Hide & Seek (Peter Martin Remix) (2005) (Progressive Breaks). Cygnus X - Superstring (1993) (Classic Trance).
BT - Godspeed (2000) (Progressive Trance). Transwave - Land Of Freedom (1996) (Goa Trance).
ATB - Fields of Love (Darude vs. JS16 Remix) (1998) (Anthem Trance) An amazing remix of the song. The original version is smooth Ibiza (also amazing). This version turns it into a smooth yet blazing rock trance anthem. Faithless - Salva Mea (1997) (Anthem House). Yahel - Voyage (2000) (Epic/Psytrance). DJ Tiesto - Suburban Train (2001) (Epic Trance).
Etnica - Moon Influence (1996) (Goa Trance). Brainbug - Rain (1998) (Symphonic Trance). Paul Van Dyk - Words (1997) (Progressive Trance). Loki - NYCU (James Holden Inertia Remix) (2001) (Progressive Minimal Trance).
Aril Brikha - Kept Within (2007) (Neo Trance). Moby - Porcelain (1999) (Ambient Breaks). Nathan Fake - Outhouse (2004) (Progressive Minimal Trance).
Bedrock - Heaven Scent (1999) (Anthem Trance). Robert Miles - Children (Dreams Version) (1996) (Dream Trance). Solar Plexus - Crystal Forest (1998) (Goa Trance).
Air Liquide - Psychocandies (1994) (Ambient Trance). Pob - Boiler (1997) (Progressive/Acid Trance). Gouryella - Walhalla (2000) (Anthem Trance). AWeX - It's Our Future (1994) (Acid Trance).
Transa - Supernova (1999) (Anthem Trance). Pulp Victim - The World (1994) (Anthem Trance). Aphex Twin - Didgeridoo (1992) (Ambient Techno/Acid). Dirt Devils - Music is Life (2004) (Anthem Trance).
York - The Awakening (Quake Remix) (1999) (Ibiza Trance). Phobia - Phobia (DJ Hell Mix) (2007) (Minimal Trance).
Talla 2XLC - Eternal Mystery (1997) (Progressive Trance) The beginning of this song creeps me out more than any other (non-ambient) song I've ever listened to. Those first few measures are like a ghostly music aura you'd hear resognating in a massive haunted catacomb, and you're the only one there who's mind it flows through. It's seriouly the creepiest trance melody I've heard. ATB - Fields of Love (1998) (Ibiza Trance). Andy Ling - Fixation (1999) (Progressive Trance). Biosphere - Baby Interphase (1995) (Ambient House/Techno) This song shouldn't even be on a trance list, because it's hardly uplifting.
I think the uplift is replaced with this creepy spine-tingle feeling. But I put it on none-the-less because I seem to be putting all ambient dance genres on here, and it's definitely a spacey trip. This is like the backround music to Psycho thrillers or wierd scientific movies like Pi. or those creepy biology educational videos you were obligated to watch in high school.
Holden & Thompson - Nothing (Original Vocal Version) (2003) (Progressive House). PHD - Summer Storm (Leisure Lounge Edit) (1994) (Classic Trance). A Positive Life - Pleidean Communication (1995) (Ambient Trance/Acid). Tilt - Rendezvous (Tilt vs.
Paul Van Dyk's Quadrophonic Instrumental Mix) (1997) (Anthem Trance). Lustral - Everytime (Way Out West's Sunrise Mix)(1997) (Ambient Trance/Breaks). Mike Koglin - The Silence (Tekara Remix) (1998) (Breaktrance) Okay, so obviously this isn't an original work of art. It's basis is off of the Depeche Mode trance predessor "Enjoy the Silence. " That would make this song some better form of Epic House. But I can't help but enjoy listening to this version- Matt Darey completely transforms this epic piece into a progressive masterpiece. The buildup from almost no sound at all is bone chilling.
Goldenscan - Sunrise (DJ Tiesto Remix) (2000) (Epic Trance). Way Out West - The Gift (1995) (Ambient Breaks). Infected Mushroom - Acid Killer (1999) (PsyTrance) God. I'm an idiot. I had this down FOREVER as "Halucinogen" and Infected Mushroom doesn't even HAVE a song called Halucinogen.
I obviously got it off of Limewire or something, I don't even remember. ATB - 9 P. (Till I Come) (1999) (Anthem/Ibiza Trance). Delerium feat. Sarah Mclachlan - Silence (Airscape Remix) (1998) (Epic Trance) I don't for the life of me understand why this song gets as much hype as it does.
As a trance song, it's nothing terribly special. At. All. BUT- I put my foot down on this- this is the ONLY remix I will put on this list.
It's the only remix worth putting on this list. The DJ Tiesto remix is horrid. No one could possibly convince me otherwise. Yawn. I mean really.
Yawn. The best version of this song will always be the original version. But I can't put that on this list, it's not trance.
The Airscape Version is passable and tolerable though, the inserted arpeggio-like melodies are pretty bomb. Cybordelics - Alice In Wonderland (1994) (Acid Trance). Jam & Spoon feat. Plavka - Find Me (Odyssey to Anyoona) (1994) (Classic Trance). Voodoo & Serano - Blood Is Pumping (2000) (Hard Acid Trance). Humate - 3. 1 (1995) (Classic Trance).
Quench - Dreams (1993) (Classic/Acid Trance). Moby - Go (1993) (Classic Trance). Taylor Presents Libra - Anomaly (Calling Your Name) (1995) (Progressive Trance) Taylor Presents Libra = BT featuring Jan Johnston.
Allure - When She Left (1998) (Epic Trance). Imogen Heap - Hide and Seek (Randy Boyer & Eric Tadla Mix) (2005) (Epic Trance) Imogen Heap's "Hide and Seek" scored huge in the remix department. It seems everyone wanted a piece of it. Not many remixes were that well thought out though. But a couple still managed to sneak onto this list, through a generous amount of like-age from yours truly. EnMass (R.
