On alphabet it might be true. But we have nothing in order.

We are first just gathering stuff and make a bit of a blueprint. Community will deffo be involved. But not with a voting system. We dont have the member amount for that. Plus it avoids ‘less smart’ votes for lets say Blah Blah Blah. ;)

Discussions and little polls will shape the list more and more, until we have something any trance fan can look at and think: Yes, this is our genre.

What are the qualifications for the tracks being put in? Just interested in your guys' thought process.

I'm sure track influence, popularity (to some degree), historical relevance with regards to not just trance but electronic music, melody and composition, and originality are some factors for making the list.

Reeeeeaaallly?

I have my popcorn ready for @Daysleeper's rebuttals, lol :LOL:

You'll know soon, but yeah, something along those lines.

Btw original Quench - Dreams from 1993 wasn't included in top 1000, but instead we can see a 2018 uplifting remix from Nicholson :LOL:

Quench - Dreams (Nicholson's Extended Cathedral Remix) [2018]


And a little reminded about how good the original is...

Quench - Dreams (Extended Mix) [1993]

Well there were more of these in the list. This has to be the best one:

Faithless - Insomnia (Andrew Rayel Remix)

Oh dear.

You know,the original Insomnia is an interesting one - a lot of people dont class it as 'Trance' and you dont really see it in top lists. But surely its Trance with that massive arppegiatted melody?? Cant be anything else...

I believe that remix wasn't released actually, wonder if anything else was in there that wasn't officially released. I know Assaf & Cassandra Grey - Lost At Sea was released after the Top 1000 was done, but was on a few compilations in 2020 (and I do like that track myself too) :)

I would class Insomnia as Trance myself :)

I'm guessing Insomnia crosses some lines between house and trance. Definitely not out of place on a trance party. Great track anyway :)

Another great one that's in a similar 'in between' genre: Salva Mea.
