TCD TOP 5 26-06-2019


We are back! Before I said it was going to be bi-weekly, then it turned out to be that I only did it once a month, and now I'm back, two weeks since the last blog! It did get some response, so I thought that it would be nice to do another one, seeing as I'm being filled with excellent music (I know that sounds wrong, but I mean it well). The music has been coming through my speakers constantly, and I've been literally in a happy state when I'm listening to these 5 tracks.


Today I re-discovered a set that I've not heard in about 16 years! DJ Tiesto, live in concert! When this event took place back in 2003, I was listening constantly. throughout the night. I was part of this, even though I wasn't there. I was tape-recording the whole set, which aired on 3FM, which was a cool radio station back in the day. Two Soundcloud accounts did have the set (well, bits of it), and when I listened to it, I became immediately hooked to the early 2000 sound. Trance was so big, and how quickly it grew became something of a phenomena.


Even in 2019 Trance is still big, but will it beat these classic anthems? I doubt they ever will. Not saying that the 2019 sound is crap, but sorry, early 2000 Trance is just next level stuff.


Here are 5 of my favourite records. It's a shame I've not heard all of these in 16 years. So underrated!


1. Solar Factor - Urban Shakedown (2002)

2. Lost Lynx - Seasons (Three Drives Mix) (2003)

3. Dave Gahan - Dirty Sticky Floors (Junkie XL Vocal Mix) (2003)

4. Solid Globe - North Pole (Original Mix) (2003)

5. Conjure One - Tears From The Moon (Tiesto In Search Of Sunrise Remix) (2002)
