Most significant and influential trance records of the 90s

I just love that 90s trance sound, the simplicity does it for me.

10 records from the 90s that had the most impact for me are:

Age of Love - Age of Love (watch out for stella club mix)
PVD - For an Angel
Humate - Love Stimulation
Armin - Blue Fear
Moonman - Don’t be Afraid
Veracocha - Carte Blanche
Energy 52 - Café Del Mar (Three n one original)
BT - Flaming June (BT and PVD original)
Chicane - Offshore
Three Drives - Greece

I would put Sasha - Xpander in there but I consider that the ultimate prog house record.

What does everyone else think?

In terms of influence, the obvious one missing here is Robert Miles - Children.

Once you get to the late '90s, the Gatecrasher anthems come thick and fast. Instead of Moonman or Veracocha, you could have had System F, Gouryella, Binary Finary, Agnelli & Nelson, Ayla, etc. etc. etc. I think it's more interesting to look at the tracks from the 1995-1997 era that took trance from being a niche concern to being the massive phenomenon it was around the turn of the millennium.

Agree with most of this, but I'd also have to put Saha and Marie - Be As One, Grace - Not Over Yet and BBE 7 days and One week.

Agreed, although the Agnelli and Nelson (even late Extravaganza releases as a whole) were a little more disposable.

In terms of straight up influence, I'd have to include Odyssee Of Noises - Firedance (The Sunrise) as aside from being a big track in terms of popularity, it had a massive effect on the direction of that sound (i.e. supersaw protoype sound).

Also probably include Li Kwan ‎– Point Zero as a protyope for another predominant sound in later trance (Lot Tribe, Tekara, etc).

Also have to mention Tilt - Rendezvous PVD Quadrophic mix as it was such a huge track but is so layered and nuanced and a lot of the production techniques/motifs were later used in many of those gatecrasher/cream tracks.

Also would have to give a mention to Red Sun - This love. It was kind of a personification of pumping trance at the time.

But then I'm getting in to Epic house like Hondy - No Access and JX - There's nothing I won't do

Agreed, it would be interesting to look at 95-97, just before it exploded. However, most of the records I chose were from that era.

Other tracks that come to the top of my head:

PVD - Forbidden Fruit (Forbidden Future Mix)
Discodroids ‎– Interspace
Starparty - Im in love

p.s. yes, I was a huge Ferry Corsten fan

Agree with all of this, Li Kwan especially.

Never heard Odyssee Of Noises - Firedance (The Sunrise), I'll check it out.

BBE - Seven Days and One Week: I used to have a recording of an Anthony Pappa DJ set and he played BBE so slow and I think played it twice at the same time, doing some really cool effects. Sounded amazing.

Tekara - Breathe in you
