    Ferry Corsten without a shadow of a doubt. Even though I'm not a fan of his stuff these days (haven't bought a Ferry tune for 5 years now), his influence on the genre as a whole between 1997 and 2001 is unparalleled before or since and I'm confident we're likely to never see such again.

    William Orbit - Adagio For Strings (Ferry Corsten remix)
    Moonman - Galaxia
    Moonman - Don't Be Afraid
    Marc et Claude - La (Moonman's Flashover mix)
    Sundance - Sundance (Moonman remix)
    Cascade - Transcend (Moonman remix)
    Mothers Pride - Learning To Fly (Moonman remix)
    Lovechild - Liberta (Moonman mix)
    Art of Trance - Madagascar (Ferry Corsten remix)
    Generator - Where Are You Now (Moonman mix)
    Cygnus X - The Orange Theme (Moonman mix)
    Pulp Victim - The World 99 (Moonman mix)
    System F - Out Of The Blue
    Soundcheck - Minddrive
    Albion - Air
    Eon - Pocket Damage
    System F - Cry
    Gouryella - Gouryella
    Gouryella - Walhalla
    Gouryella - Tenshi
    Gouryella - Ligaya
    Binary Finary - 1999 (Gouryella remix)
    Vimana - We Came
    Vimana - Dreamtime
    Veracocha - Carte Blanche
    Ayla - Ayla (Veracocha mix)

    And that's just a selection from all of these he's been involved with down the years:

    Aliases: 4x4, A Jolly Good Fellow, Albion, Bypass (4), Cyber F, Dance Therapy, Delaquente, Digital Control, East West (2), Eon (2), Exiter, Ferr, Firmly Undaground, Free Inside, Funk Einsatz, Kinky Toys, Lunalife, Moonman, Nutter, The, Party Cruiser, Pulp Victim, Raya Shaku, Sidewinder (2), Skywalker (4), System F, Zenithal

    In Groups: Alter Native, Blade Racer, Discodroids, Double Dutch (4), Elektrika, Energiya, FB (3), Fernick, Gouryella, Mind To Mind, Nixieland, Penetrator, Project Aurora, Riptide, Roef, S.O.A, Scum, Selected Worx, Sons Of Aliens, Soundcheck, Spirit Of Adventure, Starparty, Tellurians, The, Veracocha, Vimana
    I've all the respect in the world for the others in this poll (PvD and Armin were responsible for my favourite and 2nd favourite tunes of all time respectively) but I don't think any of them are "better producers" than Ferry.

    Over time it may turn out that Above & Beyond or someone else releases more quality trance classics than Ferry did in total, but I no-one will come close to doing it again in a 4 year period before moving onto something different.

    And if nothing else, the reason why trance is globally massive today and not still some leftfield, underground cult genre, is because in 1998 and 1999 it captured the imagination and hearts of the world. And the producer who did more for that than anyone else....was Ferry Corsten.

    All of those guys have others who help them to produce music. I voted for tiesto his music, because that has the most variety in dance music. The other producers use more the same samples etc..

    I would say AvB, Tiesto and Ferry Corsten ...all 3 were really important for making Trance what it is today....
    So,for me they are the most important producers, and also the most versatile, for all the aliases and inumerous choons they created...

    Considering the question was 'Who IS the best producer?' I would have to say Above and Beyond without a doubt.

    You have all listed who was the best producer... We live in the present not the past

    Trance is sounding better that it has ever sounded before and out of the list above Im gna have to side with A&B.

    I can think of a lot better producers out there though but they're not on the list

    i cant vot, cause one of the best is missing in the list

    TORSTEN STENZEL aka ACE, AKA SUSSPISSIUS AKA ...

    also missing the good old PAUL OAKENFOLD.

    I like Armin simply because of the epic sound that all his tracks have, and the large emotional impact they all leave in comparison to so many of the trance tracks I listen to.

    i vote for PVD.

    he was the best producer when armin was yet a child.
    must remember those cool years back to 90's

    i dont know what happened with him, his tracks aren't even available to purchase in certain zones.

    what happened with his GLOBAL music???. hope he get back to the floor and remember those great years when he produced music for everyone.

    Paul oakenfold is also a great producer, but his music is not well distributed.

    for me the best for now at this single moment is Lange. awesome album.
