And I've got about 10 more songs to add to the list, when I get around to it. And then I might go out and try and find some more, even.
I'm finding that in general, I like the later, more British hard trance scene less than I like the earlier Continental (especially German, Dutch and north Italian) scene.
In any case, 300 tracks is clearly too many to be "the best of"—so I probably need to only take the best 10% of that and call that my true best of. Doing two big megamixes of 15 tracks each (or so); around an hour and a half each: that's something that I'd like. Let's take a stab at what I might include on such a three hour set-list:
- Ampire "Speedlimit"
- Arome "Hands Up" (Original Mix, or the DJ Scot Project Remix? I'm on the fence here)
- Arome "Here We Go [Midnight Mix]"
- A*S*Y*S "Acid Nightmare [140 Squadron Mix]" (the most trance-ish
- A*S*Y*S "Acid Space" (probably the most trance-like of their tracks. Probably.)
- Avatar "Red Planet" (Don't know which mix yet. Maybe Jay Walker.)
- Bas & Ram "Chimps & Pimps"
- Blank & Jones "DJs, Fans & Freaks" (maybe the Cosmic Gate remix instead of the original)
- Blutonium Boy vs DJ Neo "Hardstyle Nation [DJ Neo Progressive Mix]" (in spite of the name, this is a hard trance anthem, not a hardstyle one.
- Cosmic Gate "Human Beings" (probably the original extended, but the G&M Project one is tempting too)
- Cosmic Gate "Mental Atmosphere" (If I had to do one of the official mixes, it'd be the Midnight Mix easy. But I can use the first half of the Extended mix and transition to the Midnight Mix after the break and spoken part.)
- Derb "Derb (Derbus)" (A true classic)
- Di Combo "Rock it to the Beat [Gary D Hardline Mix]"
- DJ Darkzone "The Human Form [Vocal Club Mix]"
- DJ Mirko Milano "Stopp & Go [DJ Arne L II Remix]"
- DJ Wag "Life on Mars [YOMC Remix]" (I might actually have to use the YOMC Global mix, just because it's nearly impossible to find a high quality version of the YOMC remix. Real shame; it's a better cut.)
- Droid "Focus [Uptempo Mix]
- Hennes & Cold "Evaculation"
- Hennes & Cold "Get Down"
- Juvenile "Hardcore Suckas [Trance Generators Remix]"
- Kai Tracid "Peyote Song"
- Kai Tracid "Tiefenrausch [A*S*Y*S Remix]"
- Luca Antolini "Heat [Original Hardtrance Mix]"
- Ohne Ende Geil "Endless Horny"
- Out of Grace "140 BPM [G&M Project Remix]"
- Pacific Link "Espace [Hardstyle Mix 1]"
- Pacific Link "Planetary Collapse [Luca Antolini Remix]"
- Pulsedriver "Recycle [Club Mix]"
- R.B.A. "No Alternative [Brooklyn Bounce Remix]"
- Sa.Vee.Oh "Loop Hole"
- Tankis & Savietto "Octopus [Lost in Case Remix]"
- Thomas Trouble "Insane Asylum [SMP Club Mix]"
- Titchy Bitch & The Fallen Angel "Retribution [Hennes & Cold Remix]"
- Tommy Pulse "The Answer" (Lots of choices for remixes)
- Tommy Pulse "Walhalla"
- Warp Brothers "We Will Survive [Club Mix]"
That ended up being a little too many, right?
