    (Why) are there no new ideas in trance?

    It wasn't just the internet, the build to the new millennium was a rare occurrence that actually united much of the human race, and provided a sense of excitement and anticipation that everyone could get behind. Hence most of the 90s had that feeling for many people across countries and...

    Vangelis passed away

    That's no excuse! I would highly recommend watching Blade Runner (1982), a timeless movie that is still visually and sonically stunning to this day, and the set an almost impossible standard for dozens of dystopian sci-fi movies that followed. It's also a good story too, don't let the sci-fi...

    OUT Ben Gold - Rest Of Our Lives [Armada]

    I don't know how to remove the quote pyramids from the replies function here, otherwise I would have removed your quote from that. To clarify, that second comment wasn't aimed at you but rather the person who had quoted you. My first, rather flippant, remark was based on the reality that any...

    OUT Ben Gold - Rest Of Our Lives [Armada]

    You should consider taking the same approach with all those different lifestyles/cultures/beliefs/people you don't like also.

    OUT Ben Gold - Rest Of Our Lives [Armada]

    If it shocks you that lots of people are commenting on things they don't like, I'm going to assume this is your first time logging on to the Internet.

    The Psybient / Psychill / Ambient Thread

    Won't be listening until physical formats are available, so going to have to avoid spoilers. Looking forward to it though.

    OUT Ben Gold - Rest Of Our Lives [Armada]

    I wasn't going to bother replying, but it's amazing coincidence that you mention this one. I had just listened to it the night before reading this topic, and when I read the comment that 'vocals should just be another layer' (wrong), it was the very example I was going to use. Like A Waterfall...

    (Why) are there no new ideas in trance?

    Firstly, I don't think there is a single genre of music that didn't burn itself out or run out of ideas within ~20 years or less (don't say 'pop' - that's not a genre). Secondly, it is not worth anyone's time or effort to be creative in trance any more. Complex tracks can only be a labour of...

    The KLF - Kylie Said Trance (1989)

    Here's how the final versions of both those tracks ended up at the peak of their popularity in 1991/2. 3AM Eternal was a UK #1 single, Last Train To Trancentral got to #2.

    The KLF - Kylie Said Trance (1989)

    Both produced in 1988 and released in 1989. Their releases get quite confusing because they notoriously abandoned projects, recycled ideas over and over, made about a dozen different mixes of each track, or had to cancel/withdraw releases entirely. Fans have made various efforts to recover...
