Hi all, how are you?

I am a trance lover from Italy, and I am desperate trying to find the last liveset to download of A State Of Trance.

I remember this forum that was very updated with various link where to download all out loved liveset, but now I can't find nothing about that.

At 8 october finally after that horrible time with this virus, A State Of Trance and its djs landed to Moskow, the beautiful capital of RUSSIA.

They made a great night, I saw some liveset from the FB page of ASOT, but what about the liveset to download and have in our liquid music archive?

I found some sites that offer download, but always the quality of the audio is very bad, I found the maximum of 192kbps, that is bad if you listen to high volume.

I remember some years ago, you can find all the sets with a lot of links and great quality rate, 256kbps or 320kbps for the main djs.

I am worried that these years are gone...what do you think about it?

I love the trance music like years ago, my love is the same. Can we find a way to mantain all the love to this genre and return all the things like before the pandemic time?

A big hug dear trance lovers.

Loris

Welcome!

You can check this section first, it's where our users share radio show info and such: Trance Radio-Shows

If you have no luck there, maybe some of our users who have it will. answer here.

Also, was it streamed live? Maybe there is a chance to rip it.

Thanks for the replies,

I'm sad to say that for our trance lovers and ASOT lovers, aren't great times.

The event was streamed live yes, on FB and not Youtube, I don't know why.

But if you rip the audio from a streaming I think the audio is very bad quality.

I remember some years ago you find 320kbps liveset and the ASOT world was like bigger and more followed.

I was hoping to find some users that can answer me exaustily, I hope someone will do that.

Thanks a lot

Indeed, cause back in the days there was much more proper trance with interesting ideas instead of boring commercial uplifting, cheesy vocals and trouse music which doesn't differ much from each other nowadays :)

As trance love who I am, I cannot accept this quote.

Probably you're right, probably not, I wanted only to know if there is a internet site where download all the liveset like one time.

I really hope that world of great music return to raise as in nowadays.

Back in the days (until 2006 or so) people really cared about the music that was played. Both on trance.nu and tranceaddict many listened and posted their opinions live every week. Today ASOT may have a broader audience, but its filled with people who doesn't give a flying fuck about the music.

In the first ASOT show Armin played the darkest trance out there from producers such as Oliver Lieb, today he is making commercial garbage with Steve Aoki and Timmy Trumpet. I really wonder if there is any other genre on this planet that has changed so much for the worse as much as trance has done.

like the rest of the planet biologically speaking: adapt or die out.

Trance chose to adapt, and has, as a consequence lasted longer then most other genre's in terms of its popularity.

it took nearly 2 decades for House to replace Trance in clubs as the main clubbing music. (Happy) hardcore/ mellow lasted what. 4 years?

Im not sure what you are smoking, the popularity of trance has been gradually decreasing for 20+ years now.
the popularity of trance has been gradually decreasing since 2000 according to you.. 😅

Well, thats maybe only true in your personal world, House was the main thing even in the 'golden Trance times', believe me, there are even more huge House classic tunes than Trance tunes from that era..
well here in NL a country that I would consider to be a trend setter across the globe when it comes to club v dance culture, the majority of what is spun in clubs up from 1996 up and till say 2010 has overwhelmingly been trance of a variant thereof. house gets played in the early hours, (pop/club) trance or a variant thereof takes up the majority of the evening and it usually ends on a harder note. Something reflected in the charts/dj mag of that era.

so unless your definition of what constitutes trance v house radically differs from mine, I don´t think you can make that claim with a straight face whe,n talking about club culture specifically, but i might be wrong, things might have been different from your end of the globe/spectrum 🤷‍♂️

I would say trance decreased in popularity significantly in 2006/2008, but the lag effect in clubs and clubsound lasts a lot longer, you don´t just switch chat that, especially if you have a returning audience, usually resulting in hybrid versions,

to me the death of trance was in 2012, when judge jules was replaced with dubstep, thats still well of 16 years, nearly 2 decades. and part of why it lasted so long is because it went from underground-deep to eurodance sash esq to vocal-mainstream to hard-techy etc. which was the whole point of my comment.

Maybe NL is an exception, but there is absolutely nowhere else on the globe where trance has ever been bigger than house.
Well I'd argue about the NL, UK and maybe Germany at trance's peak popularity, but yeah, it has been on the decline ever since. The only other markets that are increasing (in trance's favour) are the untapped markets, evidenced by some of the ASOT festival locations (South America, Singapore etc). But house is just much more popular globally. House is house, trance is techno (for the uninitiated).

Here, however, trance has never caught on. And I'm inclined to agree with you overall, house is just so much more popular, even on the radio. House was my gateway drug to trance, not the other way around, which tells something.

As a sidenote, would love a thread with house classics. Do we have one already? @TRANCEBLASTER

Maybe also in Switzerland, later maybe in Poland and Czechia, but these countries were absolutely irrelevant with their club scenes.

Even the 'NL club scene' will be mostly rescpected and celebrated for artist like Steve Rechmad/Sterac, Legowelt, I-F, Unit Moebius, Dj Overdose and labels like Bunker Records, Viewlexx, Clone Records, Rush Hour or Djax-Up-Beats. Not really for Trance.

well fair enough, I can only speak for my own country and-or experience. So i´ll refrase:

"it took nearly 2 decades for House to fully replace Trance in clubs as the main clubbing music in Dutch discotheques. (Happy) hardcore/ mellow lasted what. 4 years?"
