The Best Trance Tracks

I started listening to trance when I was in highschool, around 2000-2001. I don’t remember what my first trance song i’d listened to was, but my earliest memories of trance would be ATB and the Trancemaster series. During the 2001-2002 (don’t quote me here) era vocal trance was emerging and pushing the genre out from underground and into the mainstream. Pure trance enthusiasts would say that vocals have no place in trance – I like vocals, but I have a strong preference for anthem & classic trance.

Here we 2 lists – one for pure classic anthems and another for more recent tunes that I think will never go out of fashion.

This list represents what we think trance is all about. We don’t claim to be an experts – this list is merely to share what we think are some excellent timeless trance tracks. The tracks listed here will never get old and never become repetitive in our opinion. Here it is, in no particular order because I think they’re all awesome tunes that belong in any trance fans library.
