Happy 18th: Millennium Anthems From The Year 2000

18 of the biggest club tracks from 2000 that turn 18 this year. 

It was the party of the century, or better still, the Millennium. Ravers the world over partied in the new year with veteran DJ and all round legend Carl Cox setting a record playing two parties on opposite sides of the world. 2000 was the year that brought us MTV Cribs, the iPod, the Nokia 3310 and Little Britain. It was the year Borat went Stateside, Brad married Jennifer, Bansky got his work in the Tate Modern, Planet Earth first aired and the world gave us Big Brother.

For clubland the scene was thriving, with house and euphoric trance really taking off as well as a new contender. While hard dance had been popular for years on the underground tip, it was starting to make it's way mainstream through the likes of Tidy, Public Domain and the Warp Brothers. Being the amazing year it was for club music, there are loads more tracks that we could have listed, so here's out pick of 18 that turn 18 this year.
