Damn, its really a hard list to make as i listen to so many subgenres of trance! I guess i really like it when it sounds futuristic, , dystopian, emptiness of space, alien worlds

10- Parker - Beams of Gaia (Hard Mix) - Its a once in a life time crazy hard trance thats sits just right with the typical german trance in those days
without all the DJ Scot Project or Dumonde cheese, would be my fav hard trance if the kickdrum didn't drown out everything else :LOL:

9 - Cherry Dee - Passion - Probably my favorite hard trance out there. Its futuristic, no fluff, melancholic and intimidating at the same time

8 - Li Kwan - Point Zero - need no introduction here, it fits all my harsh criteria. This track shouldn't be that popular as it is, its suppose to be an experimental and lost in the depths of time, Matt Darey canned this style way too much in the future devaluing its oddity.
7 - Space Manoevres - Stage One (Solarstone Remix) - Event Horizon, ah the papa-san of space horror set in giant man-made marvels that sends meat bags into far reaches of the unknown and shits hit the fan. Everybody likes the breakbeat version but not me

6 - Ebop - Noo - Thanks to Trance4m8tor, this track isn't forgotten with time, which ironically sounds like a track thats literally lost in time, the vocal samples are just haunting and ominous, the pure opposite of nirvana. There are so many spices in this track makes indian curry looks like childs play. Its a shame when this track was pumping out fireworks and igniting the fuse... it ends abruptly urghh.
5 - Paul Van Dyk - Forbidden fruit (Forbidden Future Mix) - yea no shit me and dark futuristic-sounding trance just go hand in hand. Its like PVD's way of saying "itsss blade runner time!!"
4 - Cydonia - Animals - landing on a desolate planet in far reaches of space and first encountering living breathing talking alien lifeforms that look like ANIMALS
3 - Gemini - Winter - Cold, freezing gust of wind whispers through your ear, howling and rattling through corroded and dilapidated concrete and metal structures all covered knee-deep in snow
2 - Cybernauts - Hydrophonix - remember the 90s 3d animated MTV? Imagine some mandy & randy guy building a spacecraft, leave earth, exploring the solar system planet by planet, star by star, galaxy by galaxy, universe by universe...
1 - Country & Western - Reincarnation - This track is the demiurge of all trance. Its immortal and has clairvoyance abilities, if you decode this song, it will tell you a tale about the future of humanity and its civilizations

Hell yeah, the YLEM boys love incorporating 'deep dive' into their stuff, their whole catalog; Tonkin revolves around this type of sound with earlier works leaning towards psy/goa, well at least before the 00s start rolling around and they pretty much noped out of there

I still wonder who made this record... or its truly just a one-shot release of some guy who never released anything else?

This track is great. Thanks for sharing. And a different list of tracks, which is also always nice to see.

Edit: concerning the reincarnation track - doesnt a newer track copy that melody? Its a classic track but i cant get the name out from my head at the moment. Is it Oudja - Never Tell?

I don't know why, but this track always made me think of Texas and cowboys. Like, this is precisely what you would want to play in a weird jungle rave but everyone is wearing cowboy boots and hats and drinking beer (or any of these) instead of tripping

Im working on my top 100 again, but in the meantime I can post what I think what my top 15 may look like. I've taken some liberties and included the Orbital, Way Out West and COTB tracks, even though they're not pure Trance music. And for Lady Blue I just had to combine as I cant choose.

1. FSOL - Papau New Guinea
2. Orbital - Belfast
2. Motorcycle - As The Rush Comes (Sweeping Strings Remix)
3. Tiesto - Just Be
4. Above & Beyond - No One On Earth (Gabriel & Dresden)
5. Chicane - Offshore
6. Airwave - Lady Blue 1992 / Markus Schulz Remix
7. Way Out West - The Gift
8. Sasha - Xpander
9. Solarstone - Seven Cities (Transatlantis Remix)
10. Children Of The Bong - Life on Planet Earth
11. Armin - Shivers (Rising Star Remix)
12. L.S.G - Netherworld (Oliver Prime Remix)
13. Disco Citizens - Nagasaki Badger
14. Underworld - Born Slippy
15. Quadran - No Air (Main Mix)

Pretty obvious list really, lots of the big-time classics. But of course nothing when compared to Magdelayana's epic hall-of-fame Trance classic history top 10 (love it). Nostalgia driving all decisions, bar a few.
