The Enduring Legacy of “Greece 2000”

Back in 1997, the world and the music scene were vastly different from today. However, many trance purists still cherish singles like “Greece 2000” for the nostalgia they evoke—nostalgia for an era before many trance artists transitioned through various genres. Vintage Culture reinforced the lasting legacy of this single just last year by teaming up with the modern-day Three Drives, now led solely by Erik de Koning, to release a contemporary update of the iconic track. While it’s uncertain if the new mix directly sparked a resurgence of interest in the original Three Drives On A Vinyl edit, it certainly played a role in generating curiosity among a new generation of fans and rekindling memories for those who experienced the track’s original release.

The enduring appeal of “Greece 2000” is evident, as the track recently made a triumphant return to the Beatport Trance Top 100 Tracks chart multiple times throughout recent years. This resurgence indicates that the single is making its mark on a new generation of dance music enthusiasts, finding its place alongside newer productions and modern-day classics. For Erik de Koning, who now helms the project, and former member Ton van Empel, it is undoubtedly a source of pride to see their work garnering attention once again.
