I like Trance but find myself bored by it within half an hour. I personally like Armin Van Buuren and Sander Kleinenberg mixes. Ferry Corsten has done a few mixes that I like.

Ahh if you like Armin van Buuren and Sander Kleinenberg then you are more into progressive house which is Trance's closest relative. I'm picky with it because it can get boring, I try to find the more beautiful and melodic tracks. Ferry Corsten is trance but lately has been delving into electro-ish stuff. His song Brainbox sounds almost like something Mr.Oizo would make.

Prefer psytrance. 1200 Micrograms type music. Now that takes talent.

CanwllCorfe 02-10-2009 03:55 PM

all music takes talent, it's just a matter of whether you like it or not. I looked them up on Discogs and I guess they're really into drugs aren't they.

Regardless of being heavily drug oriented there very respectable within there genre.

i've got to be in the right mood for trance, but sometimes it is just what i need

CanwllCorfe 02-13-2009 12:33 AM

yeah that's how I used to be too. Rock and metal were my main things, and trance was my calm down music. Then it switched and now trance is my main music and rock/metal is just for when i'm in the mood for it. Although I pretty much always am, I'm quite selective.

Eat Static is psytrance, right?

I'm not really into Trance at all except some of the early 90s stuff (released on labels like Eye-Q, Harthouse, etc.), but I don't really mind Progressive House every now and then. I'm a big fan of Digweed's Transitions series, and I saw a James Zabiela set last year that I enjoyed (although it was a bit cheesy for my tastes).

I also like most of the stuff Kompakt Records releases, in recent years it seems to be getting pretty close to straight up Progressive House with guys like Boratto, etc.
