Hi guys,im planning on creating a DJ mix entitled 'Trance : Origins' - with pioneering tracks from the early 90's all the way up to maybe 1998....im hoping some of you can suggest some tracks that were important for you,or were key tracks in creating the genre....and i may include them in my mix! There could be some ive totally missed aswell.

I'l start off with a couple of my suggestions :

Include any of the Dance 2 Trance records? Hell San Fransico, Dance 2 trance, American Native? Must be some of the first Trance records made.

Cheers,im not really looking for 'all' the earliest Trance records - just more pioneering important tracks thoughout all the 90's. Although im kind of not counting 1999 and all the big anthems there hehe.

Your title does say 'origins' though, if I saw that I would be assuming to find those sort of early tracks.

Yeah a bit broader though - all the tracks that set up the Trance explosion from 1999 and beyond...before then people didnt really hear a lot of unknown tracks - Point Zero is a prime example. Thst track was years ahead of its time.

Airwave's Ladyblue wasn't actually made in 1992, he just called it that to evoke the era.

Hardfloor - Acperience 1
Mory Kante - Yeke Yeke (Hardfloor Remix)
Cosmic Baby - The Space Track
Spooky - Little Bullet (Part 1)
Union Jack - 2 Full Moons And A Trout (Caspar Pound Remix)
Underworld - Dark & Long (Dark Train)
Der Dritte Raum - Hale Bopp
Way Out West - Ajare
Chicane - Offshore

Orbital - Halcyon + On + On (1993)

Hits a lot of checks - groundbreaking and was at the same time everywhere in the 90's, but also not. OST to at least 3 big 90's movies. Heart breaking story behind it.

Technically I am not sure what styles it is, sound mostly like dream dance/trance but predates it. I guess it can be put as proto dream dance/trance.

BTW the video is from the less known original version that had very limited release and On+ On is the more melodic version that came out later and was used in the movies

There is so many mixes on youtube doing the same, and they all pretty much contain the same songs lol. But if you want to move a bit outside the obvious box maybe a song like this.

A bit like sacred cycles.
