Here it finally is! Volume 9 of A State Of Trance Classics.

Thank you for keeping this series alive with your suggestions. (Javier Gonzales, Yana Vyalykh, Rodrigo Ramirez, Allard Plantinga, Vili Karilas, Pichu04, Mariuz Belz, The ASOT forum group)

Some of these classics were really big in my sets back in the day (Lyteo! Godspeed! Yearzero!) and I'm really proud we finally have Deep sea by Aquanuts on there. Some of these classics I still play a lot in my sets today (Pure thrust, Love you more).

Again, we've done a lot of work to track down the original uncompressed masters (no vinyl rips, mp3's etc) to preserve these beauties for many years to come.

Also, I personally checked each master and made sure it's the correct unedited version, like the producer of the original intended it to be.
If you still miss a tune on volume 1-9, or you're looking for a high quality master, please let me know! Your suggestions are vital for this series. Send your suggestions in an email to and put "suggestions for ASOT classics vol. 10" in the subject line.

Thank you,

Armin van Buuren
