Saturated genre (trance) vs. unsaturated genre (orchestral/ambient - always has an audience). Also, @Magdelayna remixed Hans Zimmer, who has a much bigger worldwide name recognition than The Thrillseekers and Solarstone.
That being said, Magdelayna is probably getting a lot of views and subscribers from people who like Ambient and Hans Zimmer. The Thrillseekers and Solarstone get subscribers from their fans. That is evidenced by the difference in Facebook likes that Magdelayna talked about in the comment above.

Thats true,if theyre gigging around the world they will get a lot of social media followers - that explains that.

Another strange thing ive noticed,if you take their two biggest tracks - Synaesthesia & Seven Cities - the top played videos of them are uploaded by random people...you normally see a bands biggest tracks uploaded by their own channel,and then be the top hit on Youtube for that track.

I keep thinking some of the biggest Trance producers have missed a trick with their Youtube channels - id also point to MIKE,Airwave and Lange who also have relatively very low subscriber numbers.

Yep, Seven Cities (Solarstone Pure Mix) with 2.5 million views was also uploaded by Armada.
I agree in that trance producers missed the Youtube boat back when Youtube started. A lot of classics with millions of views were uploaded back in 2006-2009 by random people who really like electronic dance music. For example, The Orange Theme has 3.5 million views, but it was uploaded 14 years ago by a random Youtuber :p
That being said, you're doing well.

And some of these 'random' people will be getting away with earning quite a lot of money if they avoided a copyright.

Youtube is by far the biggest music platform by far,with the biggest worldwide reach - so its continually surprising these big Trance producers arnt taking full advantage.
