That song is very good. It feels like the background of an old trance track from the 90s. And I agree on your statement about the "gold painted turds."
I think you meant to quote my post, but anyways: I don't doubt that there are talented producers out there who can hack together something that sounds like old trance. There are lots of them in techno. Is it going to sound good and genuine? Good maybe, but not genuine - everything there sounds hollow.Also you are so very right and so very wrong at the same time. You will be surprised how many talented producers there is out there and they can produce anything they want, we are not talking only about trance producers. Trance has been going on the dubstep path, but it just takes longer. It is just not attractive for producers these days unless they 've been doing it for as long time.
Can they, after analyzing dozens/hundreds of '90s trance tracks, reverse-engineer the same old trance style and make it feel genuine? Maybe. Would that be worth their time? No, unless they really like trance.
