    well.. if this room isn't n e indication of trance reincarnation... just a month ago... this room was totally dead... and now its alive again.... one factor maybe cause by the hype of all these trance DJs coming over here... corsten's arrival totally got this on fire again..... and with the upcoming events with scott bond, PVD, marco V and hennes/cold.... it looks like its on a role..

    even with recent releases... there have been alot of quality trance tracks out there.... especially coming out of lange, corsten and the dumonde team.. all of each with never given up on trance....
    well.. i truely think that this cheezy genre will certainly get a second chance... it probalby wont get n e where as big as it did back in 98/99... but i can see the hype coming...

    what do u guys think???

    In my opinion, it has mostly been peoples attitudes towards trance that have changed.

    I think about a year ago they started changing for the worse. There was all the negativity surrounding the genre, about how trance is dying, and progressive is the future, etc etc.

    I think now people's opinions and feelings about it are just going full circle.

    Some people like riding the bandwagon. *grin*

    ^^^ You and your nu-trance!! ...lol

    Quite honestly, there was a thread on trance addict quite similar to this one, saying how trance has made a resurgance since about a year ago..and in reality, it has.

    Finary is right in saying that it has alot to do with the perception of it, rather than its rise in overall popularity. People have always liked it, but alot were almost ashamed of admitting their like for it. At the same time, about a year ago, there wasnt alot of high quality tracks coming out. Yes there were few and in between, but for the most part...alot of it was crap. Nowadays, those same producers who seemed to leave their genre for what seemed like greener pastures (the progressive craze), are slowly starting to flow back, and perhaps "re-invent" the genre they themselves became famous for.

    Another part is the "mainstream" aspect of trance, and how it is capable of crossing over from "underground" to "mainstream" without a hitch. Now alot of people may think this is a bad thing, but i cant think of a better thing for the genre and music i love. As alot of the trance stuff being put out may go into the mainstream, what that means is a whole other percentage of the population those records can be sold to (as opposed to say Jungle or Breaks which a much harder sell to the mainstream audience)...the more people buy trance tracks, the more producers are intent to make more trance tracks, therefore injecting the genre with much needed life.

    I personally think trance will go back to its glory days...maybe not in the same way, but in some sort of way. Instead of seeing alot of trance played at parties/raves...youll see alot more +19 CLUBS playing trance. One of the biggest and most popular clubs in Toronto already plays alot of trance (The Guv), and its clear to see just how incredibly popular that place is. I see far more of this happening in the future. The days of the UK style "Superclubs" is upon us. We are on the eve of a new era in electronic music...and trance music will lead the way.

    Im *SO* looking foward to this summer... [​IMG]

    There's nothing wrong with the emotional stuff. If done right, it's really quite good. But there was just so much shit made, in so little time, and played so much that people got sick of it.

    But there's always some good stuff. I've heard epic trance that's actually made me cry.

    Anybody who spent last Saturday at the Guvernment with SCOTT BOND will know exactly what I mean by "nu-Trance". He totally blew the roof off the place! The crowds really seem to love these harder, darker, and more techy sounds being produced and spun by former Euro-trance names.

    The rebirth has begun! :)

    could i get a good example of what nu-trance is? this would mostly be for the purpose of mockery and defamation but who knows, maybe it'll be adoration and amazement. don't know til you try biting through a pirate's peg leg. arr.

    All these genre classications are always floating around but from what some of you are saying:

    Nu-Trance = (Tek-Trance + Harder Trance) - Vocals = Trance with balls.

    (The latter of course only being a coincidence with the majority of the crowd in attendance on Saturday at Guvernment) :D

    ...Bond's set was good from 2:00-3:15... After that he played some classics which I like hearing but overall I preferred the first hour which was really bang-on and didn't let up...

    Trance gets a bad rap because the majority of the ppl who are against it seem to think they have "progressed" onto other genres leaving some of their previous tastes behind in their musical "evolution". It's like they're embarassed to admit they like Trance or something - or won't seem as "hardcore" to their buddies. :rolleyes:

    yeah, it seems there are tons of people who jumped on that bandwagon. 'trance isnt cool anymore' or whatever. f that. I don't see why people have such a hard time expressing what they really like.

    I've loved trance for years, and have never stopped loving it. Sure the genre and my tastes have evolved, but there's always at least a few new productions every now and then that give that spine-tingling feel.

    I've been really impressed with some of the stuff coming out the past couple months, and I think we're headed for a really good spring/summer.

    Well, the term "nu-Trance" is kind of a mockery in itself. Personally, I am trying to push nü-Trance as an homage to its German roots. :)

    Anyhow, it's basically an attempt to differentiate between the epic trance of yesteryear, and the new direction of producers/DJs. Think along the lines of Signum or Marco V.

    Everybody hates labels, but I would much rather run around calling this music nü-Trance instead of attaching that tired old "progressive" label. :)

    I think you can just look at the UK and safely predict that's where we'll be in 1 or 2 years. In terms of attitude anyways.
