Already got two threads going (Underground Trance and Commercial House) which diverts from the usual "ASOT/TATW" talk on this board. So perhaps there are some fellow techno freaks or at least some that used to listen to it. And I'm not talking about the popular beatport stuff with the typical white noise followed by "boom boom boom". I'm talking about the harder stuff from the likes of Chris Liebling, Eric Sneo, Hertz, Ben Sims, Axel Karakasis or Cave. From labels like Patterns, CLR, Spilo and Primate.
What's the point of this topic?;

Cave - Plutonium

Actually, techno is the new trance in case you haven't noticed (lol) and yeah this is the kind of stuff I wanted to avoid as it is all over the place (check Resident Advisor and TranceAddict for example).Originally Posted by Sunglow

Can`t remember anything else right now, I`m in hangover mode lol.
“Trance has become a dirty word, we need to return to the ethos of how this genre gained this tag in the beginning. History shows underground djs move the scene forward to I want to show clubland there’s a more serious and soulful side to trance"
