My top picks of 2023
The Beatportal editorial team asked me to choose my top two tracks from both the Trance (Main Floor) and Trance (Raw / Deep / Hypnotic) genres for the ‘50 Best Tracks of 2023’ article.
Here are my selections:
Nordic Echoes – Roots
Genre: Trance (Raw / Deep / Hypnotic)
Label: Unique Sound Records
My words: “As the title suggests, this track certainly goes to the roots of a more hypnotic kind of trance and is very reminiscent of what’s known as the Scandinavian sound with the likes of Human Blue and Vibrasphere just to name a few. This track, along with other works from the EP, has been on repeat for me and is definitely a must for the music explorers out there.”
Allan Morrow – Willingness
Genre: Trance (Main Floor)
My words: “This track is quintessential of a proper classy trance sound. The main arpeggio theme is melodic but keeps the tone serious and doesn’t cross the cheesy line, while speech samples and background mid-hi sound effects add extra layers of depth. Borderline keeps releasing one stunning release after another, and I can’t wait to discover what’s in their pipeline for 2024.”
What your two top picks from these genres would look like?
