Trance Classics: Event Anthems Edition (2021)
As you all know, I'm a huge Trance lover. Especially the Trance released after the year 2000. Why, you might ask? Well, that's because of the fact that I was still young back then, and it was the music that dominated my late teen years. After Hardcore music slowly went underground, something needed to fill the empty void, and Trance was there for me at the right time. Over the decade of reviewing, I've written a lot about Trance mixes I've found, Like Hardcore takes me back to the 90s, Trance takes me back to the Millennium years. And also because of the fact that I went raving a lot during those years, and Innercity, Sensation, Mysteryland and more were the events I visited. So this Millennium sound always makes me feel special, just a bit more than older or newer Trance music.
And for a strange reason I've not come across a mix that contained just anthems from those events I've visited. But today is a good day. K-CLUB-S uploaded a mix last year onto Soundcloud, containing only the big hits from events such as Sensation, Trance Energy, Global Gathering, Dance Valley, etc. And seeing those tracks all in one mix, it just makes my spine tingle. It gives me a good feeling on the inside, and when I close my eyes, I can picture myself again, raving the night away, among tens of thousands of ravers.
Obviously over the years I've heard these songs in many mixes, but they were always on their own, but never together in one mix. Only the anthems and nothing else. So when I was doing my exercises yesterday and I needed to have something that would give me enough energy, I came across this mix, and had to check it out. The session went well, and therefore I had to show you what's in this mix. Just have a look at these gems, these forgotten classics (some are completely forgotten about!)

That's a very good looking tracklist. It could have been a longer mix, because there were plenty of excellent tunes released around the start of the Millennium. And I remember them like it was only yesterday. Still can't believe it's roughly 20 years ago-ish when these songs were released. Time does fly by too darn quickly.
Obviously for me the best events were Sensation and Innercity, but that's just because I went there. Sadly never been to Dance Valley or Emporium. Or even Transmission or Global Gathering. So I might be a tad biased, but would you really want to start a debate? Can't we just all agree that the Sensation anthems were the dopest ones out there. Or do you think I'm wrong?
OK OK, you've made a fair point. Push's 'Universal Nation'. An timeless classic, an anthem for the whole universe. It was a tad difficult to pick one of the 22 tracks used as my favourite though, but Push always lands on the top spot for me. Finest Belgian producer ever!
The mix itself isn't great. Too many mistakes, too many transition errors. This mix would have been splendid, was it not for the mistakes. Got to deduct some points. But still be in the green due to the awesome tracks selected.
