Trance Classics Party Mix (2023)


At the beginning of this month I reviewed a mix made by Sam Garlick. His mix was focussed on one producer, who goes by the name of Signum. Today's mix is also made by Sam, but the focus this time isn't on one artist, but just classic anthems that we all grew up with, and still dance to today. Of course the focus is on Trance by the way, if you haven't noticed it yet. The freaking title of this mix is 'Trance Classics Party Mix'. So, if you are about to have a party soon, why not let this be the mix that entertains your guests?

This mix is nearly 2 hours long. and it takes you back in time. Seriously, it does. I now feel 10-20 years younger, a bit wiser, and more vital. I can dance for hours without bones or muscles hurting, and I can stand next to those big ass speakers without my eardrums bleeding. Those were the days, but those days probably messed me up for years to come. But alas, it was worth it.


His selection is great. A nice selection by a wide variety of artists. The hours will fly by, and it might give you enough energy to get you through today and the next few days, until the weekend lands again. The songs are the sound from my youth. This is exactly what I listened to when I was younger, and I can still appreciate these songs. Without the artists knowing, they have all become timeless classics. Music for not just one generation, but for generations to come!

This could have been a Vincent De Moor or Paul van Dyk appreciation mix lol. So many of their records in here. But that's all good. I love hearing their records again. I don't hear them that often. Well, that's not 100% true, Paul van Dyk is seen nearly every day in a mix here and there. Vincent De Moor not that often, unfortunately.


The mix is very enjoyable. You go from one hit to the next, and it's 18 amazing records in a row. Yes, it's got the dreaded '9PM' song in here, which I don't fully understand or like (due to radio overkill), but it just blends in well. And some versions aren't as good as the original versions. But the mix is still highly enjoyable. Trust me when I say that.


Not much I can add. Yeah, it's a very cool mix. Even though the temperatures have dropped a bit (roughly 10 degrees lower than yesterday) , you can still listen to this, and pretend you are at your Summer holiday destination, drinking a nice beverage. Or, if you are to have a party, you can have this on loud.


Best record? 'X-Santo' by DJ Jan. Big record. Haven't heard that one in a while!
