I have been a fan of trance right before I didn’t even knew it actually being a Music Genre. And I still remember the time, back in semester 3 of my Graduation, fall year 2008. It was DJ Tiesto then. I used to listen his tracks while playing NFS MW on my XPS M1530.
Ah that time, i still remember those late night Drifts and pink slips!
Back to topic now (I still love drifting you know).
I have been listening to this one series of trance music for a long time by now. It’s called A State Of Trance (ASOT) which just completed 592 episodes and 593rd was a best of 2012 trance tracks. Hosted by globally renouned Dj Armin Van Buuren, special and interesting thing about this series is that, each Thursday It plays LIVE World Wide !!!

You can also purchase the recorded versions. File quality ranges from 192 kbit/s to 320 kbit/s (source file), however, 192 kbit/s is the most common due to the wide (and free) availability of 192 kbit/s source streams as well as the relatively small file size (~180 mb per episode).
