Balearic Ibiza Inspired Trance Classics Summer Mix (Mixed By Divine) (2022)

Monday has arrived, and I've lost my mojo. It always happens on a Monday, or even a Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, or even Friday. Enough mojo during the weekend, but yeah, today is a day where I know for sure, it won't go by quickly. Normally I would need something hard, raw, and rough, just to keep my energy levels way up high, but when I spotted this mix on Soundcloud the other day, I knew I had to give it a go, and see if it would boost my levels. And it's a set full of Trance classics. A set your neighbours won't mind if you play at maxed out volume, right?

Balearic Ibiza inspired Trance. Isn't that just a fancy way of saying 'Trance music that's played in Ibiza'? To be honest, I've never been to Ibiza, but heard many stories of those who actually went. It sounded like the perfect island for clubbing. For me it was Greece, but for many fellow Dutchman (and woman) it was Ibiza. And for many Brits too. The island has got many memorable memories, and has cemented its place in modern day music history, as the place to be. And Trance music just sounds perfect: nice temperatures, nice drinks, beaches everywhere... and music blasting through the speakers. Sounds like the perfect package.

To be completely real with you all, I don't need to be in Ibiza to fully appreciate the music selected by Divine. But it would be a nice added bonus. Sand, sea, beaches, cocktails, etc. It's slightly different compared to a beach holiday at Great Yarmouth... wouldn't you agree?

Let's focus on the mix and the tracklist. See what Divine has selected, and how awesome they are. Are they really Trance classics? Well, only one way to find out:

  1. Tiësto - Ten Seconds Before Sunrise

  2. Age Of Love - The Age Of Love (Jam & Spoon Watch Out For Stella Mix)

  3. Nalin & Kane - Beachball 2003 (Original Extended Mix)

  4. Lustral - Everytime (Nalin & Kane Remix)

  5. Energy 52 - Cafe Del Mar (Three 'N One Remix)

  6. Chicane - Saltwater (Tomski vs Disco Citizens Remix)

  7. Agnelli & Nelson - Everyday (Original Mix)

  8. Three Drives On A Vinyl - Sunset On Ibiza (Original Mix)

  9. Art Of Trance - Madagascar (Ferry Corsten Remix)

  10. Aurora - Hear You Calling (Darkmoon Remix)

  11. Chicane feat Justine Suissa - Autumn Tactics (Thrillseekers Club Mix)

  12. Chicane - Halcyon (Airscape Remix)

That's one sunny looking tracklist. At the moment here in London, the sun isn't out yet, and it's only 17 degrees Celsius, but hopefully it will return later today, peaking through the clouds, and giving me a glimpse of Ibiza, and those that are raving the day/night away. Just that tiny glimpse will do me.

I really enjoyed this mix. Yes, they are filled with the big anthems, but hey, it's the Summer, why wouldn't you want to hear these classics?

Divine's selection is great. Yes, they are the classics we all know and love and heard a billion times, but it seems to work for me. Starting off with a big anthem by Tiesto, followed by Energy 52, Art Of Trance, Nalin & Kane, and more (not in this specific order, mind you). The 71 minutes do fly by before you know it, and you are in a state of Trance when you reach the end of the set.

Got nothing negative to mention. Want to hear good Trance music? Trance classics? Well, you are in luck: just check out this mix by Divine, and let it take over your dreary Monday, and turn it into a blissful one.

Best track? Simple. Without question, it has to be 'Cafe Del Mar'.
