My submissions. I just went through my Deezer favs and bookmarks, this is what I've found. I have surely forgotten something, but this is it regardless.

You will see lots of Paracosm-related stuff mainly because in it, I found something in new trance that still excites me, evokes a feeling. A really close second is Super-Frog Saves Tokyo's Straw Man.

That's also a thing with TF.R, although I admit there is some bias in there. I'm just incredibly proud of it.

I also have to say 2022 is a year where I listened to the least amount of trance tracks in my life. I was focusing more on discovering the beautiful 90s stuff, as well as exploring different genres or artists I haven't heard of before.

Track #1: Aerium pres. Avalon 62 - Eudaimonia
Track #2: tape_hiss - Taraval
Track #3: Aerium pres. Avalon 62 - OAHU
Track #4: Horizons - Dusk Over Puerto Princesa (Narel Remix)
Track #5: DJ MARIA. - Acid Sunrise (Alan Backdrop Remix)
Track #6: Standard Form - Tracks in Crimson Dust (Spirit Mix)
Track #7: Lostly - Concorde
Track #8: Standard Form - Tracks in Crimson Dust (Pathfinder Mix)

Best album: Aerium pres. Avalon 62 - Paracosm
Best producer: Super-Frog Saves Tokyo
Best label: TF.R

Simon O'Shine & Fe Malefiz - Can't See Clearly (Original Mix)
Dark Matter - Dragons Tear (Thomas Datt's Third Eye Activation Remix)
Robert Nickson, Stoneface & Terminal - From the Sun (Enigma State Club Remix)
Firewall - Together (Extended Mix)
Asteroid pres Obsidian & NuSpirit - Decipher
Digital Blonde - Legato 22
Myon - Moon (Myon Hard Club Mix)
Activa vs Mac & Monday - A Light in the Dark (Original Mix)
Above & Beyond and Mat Zo - Always Do
Dennis Sheperd x Brandon Le - Intouchable

Fav comp:
Colorscapes Volume Four - Mixed by PRAANA, Matt Fax and Estiva - Just superb, I can't have enough of these people from Colorize (ffs, we need proper releases, a CD, a web version, not just streamable stuff lol)
Voted -> ISOS 18 , CD3>CD2>CD1 (Fuck yeah, I keep Dennis mix on repeat! What can I do?)
Magic Island 11 CD1 is great as well, I am going back to it regularly. Such great tracks and mix! I hate that CD version is like half of the web version though. lol. I could vote many tracks from here as tunes of the year.
Pure Trance 9 was nice nice.
Anjunadeep 13 and Anjunabeats 16 were very nice as well! Loved the CD Bundle, I have framed the posters too on my walls.
----

Voted! I wanted to vote for sure, but left it for the last day and it took me a while to decide and ofc I am not sure yet.

As others said, it was a year full of great music, and for trance as well.

If we could add more Housy stuff, I would love to add work by Matt Fax, Grigore and many other talented people. Also Estiva as Kudus has done a great comeback. I enjoy progressive stuff so much from these people.

and lastly, I wish everyone a Happy New Year here with health and happiness. :)

Yeah most of them have liked or have picked Someone form that EP, but I preferred Gen-Z ,it has a nice lovely lyrics, hyper emotions and a nice atmosphere overall with old school sounds !!
