Last year, Armin van Buuren himself announced which track was voted as the ultimate trance track of all-time – the number 1 in the Trance Top 1000 : ‘Rank 1 – Airwave’. Rank 1 was founded by Dutch duo Piet Bervoets and Benno de Goeij, still one of the biggest artists in the modern trance scene.
For many people, ‘Airwave’ represents that ‘love-at-first-listen’ experience. It reached number 10 in the UK Singles Chart and number 25 in the U.S. Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart back in 1999. ‘Airwave’ was also the theme song for the legendary Innercity event in December 1999, held in the Amsterdam RAI.
‘Rank 1 – Airwave’ is a truly uplifting trance classic, which will definitely take you to a higher place. Its catchy melody will take you right back to the very first moment you heard it. Be sure to check it out in the Trance Top 1000 Spotify list.
