The original version of Rank 1 - Symsonic is insane. Not "It's Up to You (Symsonic)," but the actual orchestral track that starts off their Symsonic album.

One definitely very random thought. Is everyone who posts regularly on this forum essentially a world-class expert on old trance?

Would be wild if some dude from Mexico, some dude from Serbia, and some dude from Ukraine were world class experts lol

@Archon @Uplifted what do y'all think?

No but I've seen lots of people on facebook that hold a BA (Bachelor of Arts) from the University of Trance that was awarded by Sasha van Buurenfold himself

I've realized that trance is more or less my comfort genre. The energy and (generally) lack of words is amazing. Pretty much all artists are just *names* on spotify/youtube, rather than big time celebrities, which is a welcome change. All focus is entirely on the music, and the music alone.

yet, the majority of these 'just names', desperately want to be the next AAA celebrity DJs, posting rubbish 'entertaining content' to their 300 followers on IG, having dozen of various social media accounts etc. anything but not the music alone

300 is nothing, plus I don't listen to modern trance anyways other than maybe enigma state, artifact303, and activa

Last year i dived more into the Nu.trance (or whatever it's called) releases and although lots of fresh things going on it can get boring quite fast too. I guess in that regards it not much different from other genres.

I was also thinking that maybe there is just too much music being released. It can get exhausting too keep up. Same goes for movies and shows on streamingservices (also too many platforms already) btw.

We might as well have a space where you can drop off your random, music-related thoughts!

Chase Childhood Monsters is one of Airwave's hardest tracks, and it's too bad that it only has maybe 1.5k listens total on YouTube. It's an undiscovered masterpiece.
What did you mean by "hardest"? I just listened to it for the first time and expected something hard soundwise but that can't certainly not be it right?

-Edit- great track btw, so goes for The Long Road To Freedom like @Archon said.

I still can't believe that Armin's each crap new tune has more views and replies than his classics, obscure or legendary. Why can't we move on? He did...

Ngl I more or less stopped caring about what Armin, Tiesto, and other former trance producers are doing. They're just not relevant to trance or my music taste anymore. I'm sticking with the producers that we know still make decent trance in 2022/2023.

Nah I'd get it if it was circa 2015. But god, will some people just stop?
