This is a follow up to a mix I recorded a long time ago, back when Trance Classics had just hit 7K fans. I took an age to find the right tracks, but finally found what I felt were the perfect sounds

I've finally got a tracklist I'm happy with for a follow up to this one after ages searching for the right tracks.

If you enjoyed those lighter uplifting sounds of Trance back in the day then it may well be for you.

Here's part 01 again for now, will try and get part 02 recorded and uploaded tomorrow

To celebrate our Facebook Page 'Trance Classics' reaching 7000 fans, I decided to record this mix full of light uplifting 'feel good' classics in an hour long set. Tracks that leave you with that warm

Hi folks,

I've recently submitted a 60 minute DJ set into this years EOYC contest on Afterhours FM where there's currently a poll ongoing for the listeners favourites.

I'm hoping some of you guys here might vote for my mix here if it's not too much hassle?


If you can spare a few seconds it'd be appreciated. I'm sure a lot of you will be signed up already, and if not it only takes a minute.

I'd really like to see Trance Classics represented on this years EOYC event, and hopefully you can help make this happen…

Good morning & welcome to a very special episode of Classic Sundays with James! This week is episode #15 & I present to you a very special guest! The Co-Founder of the Trance Classics Facebook Group

Full On..Mask Hysteria limited edition remastered triple vinyl..yes please! Quality delivery from the postman today

Altern 8 were the very beginning of my personal musical journey into Rave and Dance music. At 10 years old, all I knew before this was what was in the charts or what my parents listened to

These guys were making sounds like I'd never heard before, and its down to Mark Archer and co that I caught the love for Rave before moving onto Hardcore, Trance, Tec...hno, House and so on.

Who knows, maybe I'd be listening to Bruno Mars and all that sort of shite nowadays otherwise lol.

Just couldn't resist grabbing a copy of this, even if it was a wee bit pricey.

"This is the moment we've all been waiting for...this, is the sound of Alteeeeern 8!!"

Thought I'd hit the big time there with the little surge of new fans on my page, only to realise I'd been mixed up with a South African radio DJ/Prankster who shares the same name 😂

Ah well, whilst you're here, can I interest you guys in some banging Trance mixes?

Tonight I'm featuring as part of a broadcast for the N.I. Peace Day Celebrations where my Lange Anthems mix will be aired right after Signum warms up for me

I'm sure most of you will have heard this one, but if you missed it, or simply fancy another listen, then please feel free to tune in at (19.40 UK time) via any of the following links below

Whilst on Yorks Facebook page the other day, I caught a video he'd uploaded/shared with some cool footage of Barbados.

It featured an edited version of a Bajan vibes/tribal type track taken from his Traveller album (Bayetta), and for some strange reason I felt inspired to Trance it up.

As I'm not a producer myself I went with the next best thing, mashing it up with Activa's 2014 release 'Antimatter'. I felt it worked quite well, and Torsten seemed to like it too


It's certainly different anyway, and won't be for everyone. See what you think

Saw an old Andy Blueman tribute set of mine gaining a few shares the other day, and it reminded me of another set I recorded in this style of Trance a few years back.

Probably won't be for all of you, especially those strictly into classics, but maybe some of you guys will enjoy if you haven't already had a listen.

Some right tearjerker melodies in there from Illitheas

There was a certain time when I loved this particular style of Uplifting Trance, and although it may have somewhat passed, I still get a lot of enjoyment listening back to this set. For me (outwith A
