Ultimate Trance Classics (2022)

From starting this morning with a Freeform/Trancecore mix, to an actual Trance mix with only the classics in them. How wonderful is that? It's certainly a great way to end your week with, especially when the mix in question is 3 hours long. Wait, what? Three hours? Yes, three hours of all-time Trance classics, mixed by Trance Classics. Well, I think that's the name of the one who made this mix, as the Soundcloud channel is also called Trance Classics. I spotted this mix early this morning, favourited it, and now I'm listening to it. And time does fly by when you are having fun. That's certainly the case here.

You all know I love myself a bit of Trance. I grew up listening to it, and around the Millennium period, when Hardcore was 'dead', I replaced my love for the harder styles to something a tad softer and a bit more mellow-ish. That was Trance music. It has been around for many years, but it became massive in the late 90s/early 00s. And that's when I fully emerged myself into the music.

And the set you are about to listen to, is filled with those classic anthems. The mix does contain the big anthems you have probably heard everywhere. I am not lying though, the classics are all in here. Well, not all of them, because if that's the case, 3 hours isn't long enough. Maybe I should have put it this way: a nice selection of classics are in this mix. 29 records, 3 hours of excellent music. And now you are curious, you want to know which songs are in this mix?

Well, here's the tracklist for you all! Enjoy it as much as I have!

Flawless execution. It's three hours, and it might be too long for you, too short, or just perfect, but for me it's been a blessing. I simply had to close my eyes, and within a split second I was back 20-ish years in time. A wee young lad, dancing in his bedroom, listening to these tunes. I feel young again with my eyes closed.

There's a variety of tracks in here by different producers, and it's nice to hear that they had their own views on Trance and how it should sound like. Again, it wasn't new, but it was still in development. It was growing, and everyone had their own style, their own sound. And that I appreciate a lot. And also the tracks were so freaking good. Quality over quantity, that's for damn sure.

Looking at this tracklist and picking a favourite is like choosing your favourite kid, if you had 29 kids. It's impossible. But secretly you do have a favourite, you just don't want to share that bit of knowledge. For me there are 28 epic songs, and one that lifts me higher than all the others. Push's 'The Legacy' is the one track that takes me into the stratosphere.

A wonderful mix to wake up to, or just to chill to on this boring Sunday. Whatever you do today, let this mix take you through today, and guide you to Bank Holiday Monday!

Maybe the only bit of critisism is the size of the file. 1.92 GB? Wow.
