    Just want to say "WICKED!!!!!!!" The Trance forum is once again busy. For the longest time ... it was dead in here and I thought it was going to be like that forever.

    It makes me sick how ppl in TO give dirty looks to those who love trance. *And they are the ones who loved trance afew years ago. PURE Bandwagon jumpers !!! (you know they will never admit they love trance, due to the fact of the image their party friends think of them* I don't give a F%cK ... Trance is my fav type of muzuk and it will stay like that forever.

    Be who you want to be ... and blast your BEATS LOUD and show your love for it. Don't be a shamed of it .. regardless if it's trance,house or jungle ... who gives a F%CK !!!

    PARTY ON PPL !!!

    I think Trance gets the most flack because the raving 'subculture' has gone so mainstream lately and trance is the one music that has gone the most mainstream of all the genres.

    I still love and respect my pussy trance. My first and last love [​IMG]

    yeah, its hard to tell what trance is. Ian Va Dahl, Alice Deejay, ATB...It all sounds like trance these days. I think what's going on with trance is that it's evolved, or maybe people have slowly been drawn to different genres. I started listening to Jugle/Drum n bass and then slowly started getting into Trance. Before I knew it, trance was all I listened to. I remember at one point I actually said "I could listen to any trance, but I can only listen to good house". Now it just seems to be the opposite. I more evidence of the natural order of life. I'm not saying that I don't ike trance anymore, but my tastes are slowly evolving, much like everything else. I find myself starting to get more into the atmospheric drum n bass these days....so maybe its true what they say.."history repeats itself".

    nah.. club music stole the trance sound. it sucks, but what can you do? its about time the genre was envigorated with new energy and new styles and that's exactly what has happened. i only feel sorry for those that are left following the old school artists out of the building to the bank. try something new!

    i have to say, after about a year and a half of hearing only the shittiest melodic trance imaginable, i heard jason marshall and sasha play some really good, interesting stuff a few weeks ago.

    everything in cycles...

    heh.. that argument has been around since 94. You should have been privy to the whole Atlantis/Destiny vs. Pleasure Force/Syrous fiasco that happened. Big stupid debate as to whether the trance scene was mainstreaming rave culture. I can see their point in a way as some people view the whole euro thing as a subgenre of trance.

    I find the whole thing funny as dj's like Sasha and Judge Jules have bad sets and suddenly everyone is questioning the entire genre of trance and where its heading.

    If you think trance has gone mainstream.. go download the most popular psytrance.. the most booming subgenre right now (GMS, The Delta, Wizzy Noise etc.. ) and see where you think trance is heading.

    I think it is lame for people to start hating on a type of music simply because it has become popular. It has become popular for a reason. Now I am not saying that all trance is good, but it appeals to a wide audience and there is nothing wrong in that.
    I used to make fun of trance a while ago, but in the past year or so I have really gotten into it, and now it is usually only trance found in my discman.

    I used to love trance. I even started out spinning it..
    What happened to trance was the same thing that happenend to house and is the same thing that happened to every genre that was good. The concept became bastardized, formulized and lost it's soul. You're right, it was a GREAT form of music filled with passion and it had a way of touching peoples emotions beautifully. As with everything that becomes popular, as people flood to it, instead of people pushing to evolve it to extreme heights, it became overrun with mass quantities of badly produced soulless crap from people who didn't understand it, but wanted to cash in on the $ or the fame. Same thing happened to house - it lost it's soul.

    FORMULA = DEATH. Too many predictable builds, too much leaning towards production but with djing being the focus. It ain't finished by any means, but it'll take some changes before it finds it's soul again.

    Yea...what exactly DID happen there?
    Atlantis was such a cool place to have the Destiny parties...and the Royal Palais sucks large (the last time I went).
    I heard the city changed some by-law disallowing anything on the waterfront after 3am or something like that?
