Trance Classics Vinyl Only Winter Mix (By Divine) (2023)

Last review of the day. Maybe of the year. Who knows. Maybe I can get myself behind my laptop tomorrow, or not. Only one way to find out. But for now, let me introduce the next mix. This one has been made by Divine, and has been uploaded onto Addicted to Trance's Soundcloud channel. As the image suggests, this is a Winter mix. Hopefully we won't have a Winter that bad. Imagine seeing that out of your window first thing in the morning? Maybe I should invest some pounds into snow tires? But it's still mild, so I'm glad. But it is the Winter period though, so we can enjoy this mix, wherever you are on this Earth.

This is a very fresh mix, and it has been only a few hours online. And as the title suggests, it's a Trance classics mix, with some big tracks in the mix. An hour and 23 minute long mix with some beautiful, inspiring songs. Who doesn't want to hear that? The songs are solid as a rock, and they will uplift you to a state of absolute bliss.

I'm a Trance fan since the late 90s, and have listened to many songs, but not all of them. So I'm still discovering songs that have been out for many years/decades. This mix has got a few of them that I've not heard before, including remixes of classic anthems I've not heard before.

But I don't care. It's all about the vibes, and the vibes are good. Not feeling the Winter elements of this mix, but I still feel enlightened. I feel more relaxed and calm, and euphoric.

It's a nice blend, and you will love it. Let's have a quick look at the tracklist:

  1. Estuera vs Re-Locate - Palma Solane

  2. Jonas Steur - Silent Waves

  3. Midway - Cobra (Original Mix)

  4. Mesh - Purple Haze

  5. Envio - Touched By The Sun (Original Mix)

  6. Sun Decade - I'm Alone (Micro De Govia Dub)

  7. Blue Horizon - The Journey (Pulser Remix)

  8. Firewall - Sincere (Pulser Remix)

  9. Push - Strange World (Spectrum Remix)

  10. Active Sight - Out Of Our Lives

  11. DJ Danjo & Rob Styles - Duende (Signum Remix)

  12. ALFA - Sacrosanct

A short list, but it's not the amount of songs used in a mix that matters: it's about the songs and how powerful they are. And I can assure you, that there are powerful anthems in this mix. There are truly amazing records.

The peak for Trance (for me) was between 1999 and 2007, those were the years. The early early stuff is a bit of hit & miss for me personally, but the Millennium years were the greatest years by far. And I bought many albums with stunning songs on them. One of the songs that I do remember hearing back in the day, made its way into this mix, and it is still a favourite of mine. Guess which one?

You wouldn't have a clue, don't know why I asked you to guess it. But it's Mesh's 'Purple Haze'. Beautiful song. Doesn't need much to uplift you. But 'Cobra' by Midway is the next song I truly love, it's close second.

Divine has made a very interesting mix with some big hitters. End the year with some fine Trance anthems from back in the day. Christmas is over, celebrate the new Year in style. Close your eyes, and let the music take you places you've never been before!

A solid mix, DJ Divine!
