To be honest, the best way to find trance music is listening to mixes and radio shows, rather than browsing through a producer's music. Here's some of my favourites I can think of:
Aly & Fila
Armin van Buuren
Stoneface & Terminal
Store N Forward
Super8 & Tab
Paul van Dyk
Above & Beyond
In reality of course, there are hundreds, but as I said, your best bet is to listen to mixes and radio shows to find trance. Beatport charts aren't too bad, but again most of the songs are trouse (trance/house) and not progressive/vocal/uplifting trance.
The three radio shows I listen to are:
A State of Trance - by far the biggest show. Unfortunately getting more commercial (house and electro) and straying slightly from 2 hours of trance. Hosted by Armin van Buuren.
Solaris International - a great show hosted by Solarstone, with three main themes of progressive, uplifting and chillout.
Future Sound of Egypt - mainly uplifting sounds hosted by the Egyptian duo, Aly and Fila.
I've also listened to a few episodes of Group Therapy (previously Trance Around the World - hosted by Above & Beyond) and Hungarian duo, Myon & Shane 54's vocal podcast, International Departures. To be honest, I was dissapointed with both of the podcasts as both were at best trouse (trance/house) if not downright house. There wasn't an element of trance in either...
As for YouTube mixes, here's one of my March 2013 progressive/uplifting mixes:

One thing to be careful is that some of the songs you find won't actual be trance. Take Armin van Buuren for example. A couple of years ago he produced a load of pop song with people like Sophie Ellis Bexter and Adam Young (aka Owl City). Now he is going through a speed of releasing house and even electro (take his new 'song' with W&W called "D# Fat" for example). Trance fans aren't very forgiving and you can often see tracks get 50% dislikes if producers stray from the genre.
Anyway, right now I'm listening to this currently unreleased vocal trance track (it's one of my favourites!). As soon as it gets a release, I'll be featuring it on one of my vocal trance mixes!
As for progressive house, my knowledge doesn't really extend beyond Audien
