Half of that list is on the 'most played' on my Ipod. Needs more Push - Universal Nation.

Agreed, definitely needs Insomnia and Haylcon

Also I'm a massive underworld fan but Cowgirl? Really? There's so many better tracks, even on the same album

Rez/Cowgirl
So much epicness

Surprised that the Chemical brothers - Star Guitar, Faithless - Insomnia, and The Prodigy - Breathe didn't make it...

Unfinished Sympathy is a cracking song but it's not really dance imo.

Cowgirl is a pretty solid on its own, but the live mixup of Rez/Cowgirl from Everything, Everything is out of this world. Face-meltingly awesome.

pretty tidy list. Agreed with the comments re: Halcyon. I'd throw Future Sound of London - Papua New Guinea in there somewhere and my personal rave fave Kinetic - Golden Girls. It takes a while to become a classic, so it's no surprise the list isn't overly contemporary

The skream remix of La Roux is suitably epic, probably favourite dubstep song thus far. Swap out massive attack for insomnia and diss reaction for underworld and you've got a pretty decent list.

I am a huge dubstep fan, however, I am surprised that the Skream remix made the cut.

Reads more like (It's all gone wrong)'s Favourite 20, not Top 20.

Maybe Mary Anne Hobbs, Gilles Peterson or Benji B should have done this list.

And that Skream track is more crudstep than dubstep. Should have been something off his 'Skream!' album or Burial's 'Ghost Hardware' if any dubstep was gonna hit the list.

one track per artist would have made this list a little more interesting... halcyon not on it pretty much voids its credibility in my opinion.

I cant believe none of you have commented on 20.Diss Reaction – Jieehaaa. Hilarity that it actually got included. Some hardcore guys were doing a thing online "get Diss Reaction into the top 20!" by spamming it everywhere.

Awesome tune, it deserves to be there. Nice to see hardcore represented, and the genius behind that track, Patrick van Kerckhoven.
Music is the best drug.

Obviously there are only 20 tracks that could make it, so there are bound to be emissions, but overall I'd say a pretty solid list.

Prodigy - Breathe
Faithless - Insomnia
Da Hool - Meet her at the love parade
Darude - Sandstorm
KLF - 3am Eternal or Last train to trancecentral or the whole White Room album
Hocus Pocus - Here's Johnny

Cafe del Mar fully deserves number 1 position, of course Born Slippy & Xpander would be great number 1's too, and i'm glad this list is decent, altough i don't understand what's so special with Show Me Love, i mean, i don't dislike but it's not a top song, in my opinion & Pjanoo, although it's not a bad track, sholdn't be there too, in my opinion, but yeah, it was a decent list.

Interesting that Fatboy Slim didn't rank in there... despite his need to go to rehab, he's been one of the most influential producers in dance music in the last 15 years!
