I hope everyone had a really good new years eve! What better way to spend your new years day than writing about your top ten classics of 2012. I don’t mean the tracks from 2012, but my most current top 10 classic tracks of all time.

Last time I actually did a top 10 of classics were in 2008 and then the list looked like this:

1. Chicane – Offshore (Disco Citizens Remix)
2. Energy 52 – Cafe Del Mar (Three ‘N One Remix)
3. Gat Decor – Passion (Original Mix)
4. Veracocha – Carte Blanche
5. Subliminal Cuts – Le Voie Le Soleil (1996 Way Out West Club Mix)
6. Y Trax – Mystery Land (Original Mix)
7. BT – Flaming June (BT & PVD Mix)
8. Dumonde – Tomorrow (Moogwai Remix)
9. Solid Sessions – Janeiro (Armin Van Buuren Remix)
10. Solarstone – Seven Cities (Atlantis Mix)

So what has happen since then? Which track has climbed? Which new track has entered the list? Which track has left the list?

Well, let’s start from the top:

1. Chicane – Offshore (Disco Citizens Remix)

Still my number one of all time, so timeless. So simple but yet so advanced. I’m really intrigued with the smash hit that Nick Bracegirdle managed to make. Big in the charts aswell as to the clubgoers and still driving clubbers to madness when dropped by their favourite DJ.

2. Energy 52 – Cafe Del Mar (Three ‘N One Remix)

Still no 2 on my list. The great buildup before the amazing breakdown is still giving me major goosebumps. Many have tried to make a better remix but none has made it (so far)..

3. Veracocha – Carte Blanche (Original Mix)

Climbed one position since last list and such an amazing track. Ferry Corsten and Vincet De Moor’s classic track will always be in my top 5. The explosion after the piano-breakdown is simply a masterpiece!

4. Cosmic Gate – Body Of Conflict (Club Mix)

The first newcomer on the list. The original track is really good but the Club Mix is something completely different. All the small effects, the sweet bass and I just love what they did with the vocals.

5. Ferry Corsten vs The Thrillseekers – Sublime (The Thrillseekers Remix)

New on the list and actually a track that I completely forgot about. The warm sounds from The Thrillseekers makes this track simply amazing. I just love the disted lead-synth. So epic!

6. Solid Sessions featuring Pronti & Kalmani – Janeiro (Armin Van Buuren Remix)

Climbing 3 positions and getting a well deserved place just outside the top 5. Remember the firt time I heard that track on Armin’s radioshow, A State Of Trance. Blew my mind! The vocals together with Armin’s buildup will always keep a legendary-status in my book.

7. BT – Flaming June (BT & PVD Remix)

Flaming June keeps it’s position from the old list. Just love the piano in the track and the amazing work that BT and Paul Van Dyk put into the track. So old and yet so fresh.

8. Solarstone & Jes – Like A Waterfall (Deeper Sunrise Mix)

A newcomer to the list and so magical. Just love the buildup with all the effects aswell as Jes’s amazing voice. Did I mention that I love the piano? The Deeper Sunrise-remix isn’t available on youtube so I had to go for the club mix instead.

9. Gouryella – Walhalla (Original Mix)

Ferry has always been my biggest idol when it comes to trancemusic and together with Tiesto he accomplished some really nice gems. Although only releasing 3 tracks togehter, all of them are still legendary. What I really love with this track is the amazing buildup after the breakdown with the piano.

10. Oceanlab – Satellite

Another new entry. Above & Beyond’s music has always fascinated me, especially the Oceanlab-moniker together with Justine Suissa. Her amazing voice together with Above & Beyond’s music is simply a match made in heaven.

So what do you think? What does your top 10 classic list look like?
