Trance Classics (2021)

Let's end the working week with something mellow. Yes, the previous two reviews were OK, don't get me wrong, as they were more Hardstyle and Hip Hop-ish, I needed something to calm me down, and get me ready for the upcoming weekend. A weekend during which I am not going to do a lot. Hell, I might even do the opposite. Nothing. Sit down and do nothing. Just unwind, and think of what has happened during the week just gone by, and think of what's about to come: the next working week. But, think of the positives: it's one week closer to your retirement!

I know, that sounds wrong. But let's make it all right! Let's focus on the mix, and you might wondering what kind of music is in this mix? Well, if you haven't spotted the massive 500 x 500 image above, you might need to go to Specsavers. But yeah, this is a mix by Trance Classics (the Soundcloud channel's name is just that), and it's filled with Trance classics. And you all are familiar with my love for classic Trance anthems, right?

I do freaking love them. And without further ado, let me show you the actual tracklist. It's a 2 hour long mix, and only 21 records, so you know what that means: full length songs! And you know how much I adore those songs. Not those freakishly short radio edits: who wants to listen to those? It's an abomination, those radio edits. Shortening it down unnecessarily. Especially with Trance music, where the climatic moment can sometimes take minutes... and if it's not suitable for the radio, leave it off the radio! Don't shorten it. You need full length anthems to absorb the meaning and the reasoning behind this song.

Ranting over. Now it's tracklist time!

  1. Kelly & Lee - Only You

  2. Robert Miles - Children (Tilts Courtyard Mix)

A glorious looking tracklist, with a lot of epic anthems. And most of these I had on discs, vinyl, or CD singles. Yes, I was one of those people. Way before the digital age, you could only purchase these songs in a physical form, be it on vinyl or CDs. No digital malarkey, just realness. And I just realised that it makes me sound extremely old.

I love this mix. In a split second it takes me back to the good ol' days of Trance music. I was still young and didn't have grey hairs, and I fell in love instantly with it. It's been in my life for more than 25 years now, and it will never leave my side. And Trance Classics selection is truly amazing. The big hitters are in this mix. Don't believe me? Just read the responses to this mix on Soundcloud. It's already hitting big play numbers. And people are really happy with it. So am I.

A nice and relaxing mix, and one that wants me to go back to the dance floors. I really need to get out more.

A solid mix, and it's also downloadable. So if you are eager to listen to this, just go down below this review, and press play on the Soundcloud player. You will not be disappointed. Pleased is more the term you are looking for.

Best record? 'Sunset On Ibiza'. No brainer.

The only negative is the actual file size. Bloody Nora, 1.4 GB!
