I love making playlists and creating journeys through careful selection of the tracks' order.
Which tracks would you play one after another and why?

Here's three tracks that I love playing in this particular order:

Airwave - I Want To Believe (Dolphin Mix)
Followed by
Schiller - Das Glockenspiel (Humate Remix)
Followed by
Mike Push - Universal Nation (Original)

They all have a particular mysterious space theme going on, seem to support and connect to each other, building up from deeper to more banging grooves.
I've heard Solarstone drop 2 and 3 live, in this particular oder. It was a massive feeling, unforgettable.

Ha, interesting thread. I do that sometimes myself, with playlists, but most of the time I can't be bothered. Will post some if I remember.

Really went well together.

^ big '90s energy, lmao

Like @Gagi I've done this with my playlists, but not for trance. It's more like for other genres. That being said, sometimes I do hear electronic/trance-like tracks in sequence, especially if I made a DJ mix using that sequence.

John 00 Fleming - The Astrophysical Nebula
Orbital - Halcyon On and On
Karen Overton - Your Loving Arms

The tracks above make little sense and shouldn't make sense. The first is a mid-2010s psybreaks track, the second is one of those early 90s melodic classics, and the third is a mid-2000s trancy house track. Yet, the ethereal voice and bassline from Halcyon On and On matches well with the breakdown from The Astrophysical Nebula, including its little strings. Karen Overton's deep, ethereal voice is a nice contrast to the chopped vocals of Halcyon On and On. I believe each track complements well its previous track.

Another two tracks I found that worked well together:

Armin van Buuren - Virtual Friend
Heatbeat - Arganda

Similar eras, similar styles and melodies.
Other interesting tracks to play in sequence:

Marcel Woods vs. Jesselyn - Fauna
Ernesto vs. Bastian - Who's the Starter?

Solar Fields - Brainbow
Pink Elin & Atom Heart - Elektronikaa (Live at Temple Helsinki Edit)
Orkidea vs JS16 - Hale Bopp (Orkidea Mix)

I'm a 00s child lol. Wasn't bad either!

Went into Trance through Cosmic Gate - The Drums album (still freaking love it!) and listened to ATB at his peak.

When I like to be in a melancholic trance mood (which is my favourite), I like to go this way:

Ferry Corsten - Sweet Sorrow (Thrillseekers Remix)

followed by

Airbase - Escape

followed by

Angelica S & Science Deal - Mirrors Of Souls (Original Mix)

followed by

Avernus pres. Arteca - Empathy (Original Mix)

and sometimes +

Arctic Quest - Renaissance (one of my favourite ever trance tunes)
