Have to admit I am a noob for Trance below 1998 but this thread has some straight up treasure just in the first page I listened to, need to check out more of these artists.

I like this one, it has a 80's elements in the track

Oh, that's exciting. You're pretty much the demographic for this thread - regular trance listener that might not have heard much early '90s trance but that is interested in learning more about it.
The tracks in the OP are a good start. I would say they're some of the more accessible from this era. You can then move on to the rest of Eye Q, Platipus, underground kind of stuff. Other commenters have posted great tracks, as well.
I'm happy that you decided to hear early '90s trance!

Virtual Symmetry - The V.S. [1994]
This track was mentioned in page 2, in that really long list of trance classics :p I'd like to bring it up again individually.
The V.S. is one of the first moments that made me :O during Paul Oakenfold's goa mix. It sounds magical there. Not sure if that's because of the radio quality or because Oakenfold EQ'd a bunch of things to make it that way.
