What Are Your Top Ten Classic Trance Tracks?

If you were asked to list your top ten favorite classic trance tracks, could you?


This week the global trance family painstakingly put together lists of their top ten classic trance tracks via nominations over Facebook. Similar to the ALS ice bucket challenge, my feed was rampant with these type of posts, and I was certainly not complaining.

It’s very simple. A typical post involves a thank you to the person who nominated the list maker, then said person lists their top ten favorite classic trance tracks and then nominates however many people they’d like to see do the same.

My List (You’ll notice I went over ten…)

1. OceanLab – Satellite

2. Lost Tribe – Game Master

3. Tiesto – Just Be

4. BT – Force of Gravity

5. Cosmic Gate – Barra

6. Paul Oakenfold – Southern Sun

7. OceanLab – Clear Blue Water

8. Mads Arp – Slow It Down (Mathilda Mix)

9. Plummet – Damaged

10. Armin Van Buuren – Shivers

11. Sunlounger – Lost

12. Simon Patterson – Taxi

13. Max Graham – Nothing Else Matters

This has definitely started a small social media movement! Producer Ben Nicky was inspired by this and threw together a set available as a free download!

“Thanks for nominating me to say my Top 10 Favourite trance tracks, I couldn’t say for sure this is it.. But this is some of them merged together in mix form.”
