Jean Michel Jarre – Oxygene Part 4
This track got me hooked to instrumental music and is one of my all-time favourites.

N-Trance – Set You Free
This is literally one of the tracks I listened to the most during my youth. I fell in love with the vocal and the nice M1 Piano arps.

Robert Miles – Children
There is a popular remix out now by Tinlicker. I think this proves that even a song without vocals can tell a beautiful story and move you.

The Popcorn Makers – Popcorn
This synth hook is just amazing. I have always wanted to make my own instrumental cover. Time will tell if I ever get around doing it.

Kavinsky – Nightcall
I heard it in the movie Drive and fell in love with the dark vocal and the dreamy lush female chorus and instantly searched for it on Spotify. I still listen to it on a regular basis.

Flying Pickets – Only You
This is a reminder that you don’t need any expensive equipment to make a #1 hit track. Only your mouth.

Gypsy & the Cat – Parallel Universe
I just love the dreamy piano chord progression and overall vibe in this one. So glad I stumbled across this one.

Red Carpet – Allright – Brad Carter Remix
The piano chord progression in the breakdown is just breathtaking and still gives me goosebumps. Playing this in a club with powerful speakers still works wonders.
