SCOTT BOND - 1999 REBOOTED (2013)
The year is 1999. The Millennium was about to happen, and the world was anxious to know if the world would implode due to the Millennium bug. And wasn't 1999 the year Prince was singing about? It was a big year, especially for Trance music, because that was the year I fully developed a constant love and passion for it. Trance has been around for years, but when Hardcore was going through some problems, I needed something to fill the gap, and Trance was the one that embraced me, and told me that everything was going to be fine. And 1999 was also the year I started purchasing a shit ton of CD compilations. I've spent a lot of money at my local CD store that year, and the following years.
And boy, was it a good year for Trance music. Scott Bond showed us ten years ago that the year 1999 was a great year. Scott Bond does know a thing or two about music, and if you don't know him, it might be the right time for you to go onto Wikipedia, and read a bit more about him. And while you are at it, why not discover some other bits of information you didn't know. Always good to educate yourself.
Scott has been active in the scene for quite a while now, and also co-founded ''Gatecrasher'', and their Trance albums are still adored and appreciated to this day, so he knows a thing or two about Trance music, and it shows: his mix is nearly 2 hours long, but has got 18 excellent anthems in it. No short radio edits, but the full length versions. He made sure you did feel what the ravers felt in 1999. Pure bliss, and in pure ecstasy.
I don't know why it's taken me 10 years to find this mix, but at least I'm not too late to join the party. If you haven't heard this one before, check it out right now, and join the festivity. Join the madness, back in 1999!

These are certified classics! My sweet Jesus, they are so freaking good! I remember hearing them at parties and raves, and even at some local clubs. This was such a great time for Trance music, and also for the fans of it. Give me late 90s/early noughties Trance any day of the week. Not that current style people seem to dig. Nothing beats the classics.
And Scott has put 18 of those classics in here. He doesn't take any prisoners, this Scott Bond does. His mix is interesting from the first to the last track, and he keeps us dancing wherever we are. And it's a trip, a trip back in time. When Trance ruled the world.
This brings back a lot of good memories. Me digging through the crates at my local CD store, seeing if I could find a hidden gem. And spending thousands of euros. That's the sad thing. But it was oh so worth it, as it expanded my musical knowledge, and gave me an undying love for music in general.
Scott's mix is truly amazing. It's got too many wicked classics to mention, and I can't even pick one out, which I would consider to be my favourite. I like them all. Seriously, I like them all.
The mix might be 10 years old, and the tracks roughly 24 years old, but they still sound fresh, and not outdated whatsoever. Trance is timeless.
