The Top 10 Trance Tracks of 2020 – According to Ferry Corsten
Few artists can look back on a career and list of creations as commendable and impactful as Ferry Corsten’s. Having led the charge of Trance music across the globe as one of its flagbearers, the Dutchman is still one of the genre’s most authoritative figures today. And that’s exactly why we were so excited to sit down with him and ask him to pick his Top 10 Trance Tracks of 2020!
#10 Andy Duguid - Be
Andy Duguid’s ‘Be’ is such an interesting track to me. The hopeful feeling it radiates perfectly matches the title, and he made such cool use of his daughter's voice as a vocal too. This one really stands out to me!
#9 Above & Beyond feat. Zoe Johnston - No One On Earth (gardenstate remix)
Above & Beyond’s original ‘No One On Earth’ is a deep and emotional track. I've been a fan of that record since the Gabriel & Dresden Remix from back in the day, and I love the new breakbeat approach by gardenstate.
#8 DIM3NSION - Outstanding
Groove to the necks with an in-your-face riff: an ‘Outstanding’ track from DIM3NSION.
#7 System F - Out Of The Blue (ilan Bluestone Remix)
I’m proud to say that ‘Out Of The Blue’, which I made under my System F moniker so many years ago, is considered a Trance classic by so many people. It is far from easy to remix a track that many hold in such high regard, but ilan nailed it. I love how he updated this classic with a fresh approach while staying true to the original.
#6 Leon Bolier - Perpetual
It's great to see an old-school producer like Leon Bolier come back to Trance again and I'm proud that he decided to do this on my own label Flashover Recordings.
#5 Ferry Corsten & Ciaran McAuley - Mo Chara
I just love how this collaboration with the super talented Ciaran McAuley came about and the heavenly sound it features. Truly a track that pays tribute to brotherhood and camaraderie.
#4 Leon Bolier & AIKA - Northern Moon
I've been a fan of both Leon's and AIKA's productions and I just love the unique sound of the riff. I was really glad to see them team up for this Flashover release.
#3 Alex M.O.R.P.H. - Blue Bird
Alex is one of those producers that can always put magic in his tracks, and his record ‘Blue Bird’ is the perfect example of uplifting trance to me.
#2 Joonas Hahmo presents DOS622 - Glittersweet
I've played this track from Joonas Hahmo (as DOS622) in a lot of livestreams this year. It’s the kind of track that will lift up anyone who feels a little down.
#1 Johan Gielen & Marco V - Timeless
A collab between two long-established producers, ‘Timeless’ is a unique record that really stands out on its own. It's a track with a big attitude and a perfect crossover between genres.
