I went looking for a current thread and found one from 2009 and a related one from 2014 but not a definitive thread

So I started a new one.

We have at least two awesome PHers who are trance DJs.

Currently I am on a downer so I am listening to these:

CD changer? How quaint.

The SD in my car has the entire Rob Joyce* Trance Podcast back catalogue amongst much else

Following this thread with interest.

Anyone watch the Cercle productions on YouTube? Excellent for some relaxation. Rather enjoyed Above & Beyond at Guadalpe, Colombia.

Ha ha, two different takes on the trance genre in the first two posts hehe

But anyway, I played a few mixes along the lines of the Oakey one above and Youtube gave me a few more to listen to. Which is how I got onto:

Driving Music: https://www.youtube.com/c/DrivingMusic
https://www.youtube.com/user/Volner0
The Thrillseekers: https://www.youtube.com/c/TheThrillseekersofficial

and then Youtube will suggest more like that.

Oakenfold usually comes up with an eclectic mix - that Essential Mix in one of the posts above being a case in point but some (his earlier mixes mostly) have been full-on crazy.

Presumably made before poor old Sinead's train completely left the tracks.

And then we can go with some more. Watch out for that dodgy stationery cupboard!

Ahhhh a thread after my own heart. After a 15 year hiatus I bought decks again, but vowed to keep the costs down and just buy hard house. That lasted about three weeks before I started repleneshing my trance collection. I love it.



PS they're not Technics

Following with interest. I used to be hugely into this 15 - 25 years ago but I'm now more into "IDM", prog, techno etc. I still have love for some old trance stuff though.


Is anyone making new trance these days and has it evolved in it's sound?

Yes, and yes!

The wilderness years have passed. Plenty of good stuff out there now. But wat to much generic/formulaic crap!

Still love my old digweed renaissance mixes from the early 90s

Was also lucky enough to go to samsara and RTTS whilst I was at uni in London

Very happy days and still sounds amazing today smile

Timely thread.

Been listening to a lot of my old favourites from mid 90’s to early 00’s recently. Still massively enjoyable even without the huge quantities of recreationals of 25 years ago. SOme of the stuff from the late 90’s is truly epic.

Listening to some NY House too.

Aaah, I did love a good bit of trance during the early mid 90s, for me it was a more accessible, interesting, but still hard rhythm driven and a bit psychadelic version of Techno, and still had a bit of the Acid House sound to it. Later in the 90s when dance music went nuclear, I felt Trance music shifted to more melodic and anthemic (with a nice lady voice over the top often) and DJs and producers started to star in their own MINISTRY OF SOUND IBIZA EUPHORIA TRANCE!!! compilation CDs which I was less into.

Though saying that I know its probably a bit cheesy but whenever BBE's 7 days and 1 week pops up on a playlist (not the awful radio friendly remix which shortens the hair tingling breakdown from 3 mins to about 30 seconds), I can be transported to a period between 1995/96 when I was having a particularly good time smile (Mid 20's living in Bristol & Bath - pretty good place to be those years!)

I remember a fair few Perfecto tracks were crackers, I used to have some Sven Vath records too, and would get some decent Goa trance influenced and techno nights in warehouses in Bristol, plus the Brunel rooms in Swindon had some really good hard/progressive house nights during that period.

Was also partial to a bit of ambient trance too that I'd stick on the cd player and [b]try[\b] to relax and get to sleep after a big night... such as the 2 CD Trance Europe Express compilation.

I know i was being rude about compilation cds - but often they were places you couldn't get rare remixes you had no hope finding on vinyl (and no Youtube around then, many a time I used to hum and sing songs to record shop owners to see if they knew the record!). Like the brilliant club 12" remix of Leftfield's Song of Life that I had once heard in a tent in the middle of the night at Glastonbury, I only stumbled across it a couple of years later randomly on a freebie compilation CD with some dance music mag.
