Sad Trance Songs

Trance being the most ambiguous genre of dance music covers a lots of emotions in it’s sub-genres. Almost every sub-genre of trance has sad tunes in it. When i started producing trance during my college days the tracks i focused on were dark and sad trance tunes. I managed to produce most of dark trance tracks but sad trance songs is something that i didn’t managed to produce so far. I’ve unknown sadness & despair in my life but i don’t know how to get it out into tracks, now i only prefer to listen to sad trance tunes instead of thinking about producing them.

None of the tracks posted in this hub ever made me cry but while listening to them and performing some other activity like writing or coding on laptop gives some better results or performance boost you can say. I have observed that they do lift my mood up even though they’re sad tracks. So i decided to post a list of trance tracks in this hub.

Mekka - Diamondback (original mix)

Airbase - The Road not taken (Leon Bolier Mix)

ATB- Marrakech

Mekka - Diamondback (original mix)
Mixed with short female vocals this is the song that makes me sad most of the time. Track has a bit of melodic beats in it as well.

M.I.K.E presents Plastic Boy- Chocolate Infusion
It’s melodic trance but i found it a bit sad tune especially in the middle of song. Synth is bit sad and yet quite melodic as well.

Airbase - The Road not taken (Leon Bolier Mix)
Leon made a good mix of this song and turned it into sad trance song. Though some people think of this as chill tune but find it hitting chords of despair.

Stoneface and terminal - Inner Voice(Dub mix)
It’s in my favorite list of trance tracks. Without vocals this dub mix is a complete sad trance track in my opinion. I can’t decide if it’s uplifting or sad trance.

Pulser- My Religion(Airbase Mix)
Airbase mix of this song is bit of sadistic. I’m not sure how he twisted the synths but definitely made it much better than original track.

Scott Bond vs Solarstone- Naked Angel (Aura Northern Chant Remix)
This is quite old track and is mixed by Mp3.com’s famous trace group aura. Overall build up and arrangement of track is awesome, definitely a sad touch to original trace track.

Variant K- Mne Mnogo ne Nuzhno( DJ Yan Remix)
It’s vocal trance song, beats are sadistic but vocals are not. Overall fits for sad trance track.

Michael Splint feat sasja- Secrets broke my heart (Airbase Mix)
There are about 2-3 mixes of this song but i found airbase mix of this song perfect for me. It has sad synths which are quite uplifting as well.

Airbase - Escape (original mix)
This song is quite relaxing and has sad synths in it that makes it a bit of more sad track.

Alex Morph & Woody van eyden- I love trance ( Temple One Remix)
This remix song and the original both are worth to listen. I found the temple one’s remix bit more into sad side than original.

ATB- Marrakech
This track is also OST of “Mind hunter” movie, nice track and i find it bit sad and got hooked to it. Revolution Mix of this song is also worth to listen.

Airbase - Sinister
It is one good uplifting track and i find the mid-synth a bit of sadistic. Nice track in any case, worth to grab.

Cool hub... some of these i would classify more as "relaxing" or "soothing" instead of "sad"... nothing like some good trance music!

I totally understand what you mean. When I am really down, I relate to a melody on a more intense level than I do lyrics. Chocolate Infusion is by far my favorite trance release of the year and possibly of all time. That song is so emotional lol.

I prefer "sad" trance. I don't particularly find it sad at all. I love it when artists incorporate old songs into their mix like, Losing My Religion. Found that song amazing. Thanks for a great hub.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding what you mean by sad, but when these two tracks in particular are played in clubs the reaction is far from a sad one...

Oceanlab - Satellite

System F - Out of the blue

I think maybe you mean tracks in a minor key? They tend to have a 'sad' sound to them.


Keenan 6 years ago

Hey guys, yeah awesome selection. I think the "cry" factor with songs such as "system f - out of the blue" is the emotional ride the song has. its classified as uplifting trance. Out of the blue is still to this day my favourite song of all time, when i listen to it, i think back to the days of growing up. Its amazing how songs can do that to you. Gives me "happy tears" when listening to this :)
