Spin (via White Light)
Spin has an interesting article about the a rebirth of the "maligned sub-genre": Trance. Maybe what got in the way of Trance was the huge number of completely different sub-genres ranging from goa to Tiesto, which may be a far away trip from each other (and from many people's tastes). Anyway, the thing is they managed to gather a collection of some quality trancey sets that you should definitely have a look whenever you are on that trippy mood.
One of these sets is from a JD Twitch (half of Optimo), whom you probably know for playing different music styles in their set. JD claimed his intention was help people get free from the bad associations they usualy have with genre and provide a transcendental effect to those car trips.
The set does not bring many famous names to me, as I myself haven't been listening to the genre for some good years. Except of course for The KLF almost in the end. It is, however, of high quality and definitely worth the trip.
