    Which type of sound/period from the past do you miss the most?

    There is already a topic on most missed producers from 2009, but lets see if tf members opinion on this is shared or divided. Let me know if i missed out on anything, which I most certainly will do. Very niched or small subgenres or sounds of maybe 1 producer will not be included.

    Some of my own made-up defintion will be included.

    Edit: Can you help me come up with a list of the more significant sounds/periods over the years?

    I think all (or most) of them, because that's what I love. A very lazy answer, I know, but it's the truth.

    The highly melodic, organic, yet somewhat spacey/out-of-this-world sound that developed during Trance's commercial heyday but just before the massive influx of producers from 2004. I'm talking about tracks like these produced at some point in 2001-2002 that don't quite sound like tracks from the '90s, but that are also less technological/modern than tracks from 2004 and beyond.
    Some examples are:

    Psylocke - Arcanum


    Hibernate - Mane Sonitus


    I think ISOS3 and the very early ASOT releases contain mostly this type of tracks, as well.

    Nice!! Good tracks. Ive also been thinking abit as of late about this particular period that was after the the millenium hype and between 2001-2003/4/5 but before the more, I dont know what to call it ASOT(label)/ANJUNA heydays. But it overlapps somehow.
    Surely has to do with which hardware you used etc. But it feels like the pre asot/anjuna trance was little less templated and more free-flowing.

    Arcanum is one hell of a track. That melody that comes on before the climax is something very Arksun-like, also sounds what we would hear on ASOT in its early years - albeit in a more uplifting form. Same goes for Mane Sonitus.

    And BTW, Psylocke isn't Incolumis. Psylocke is Antti Lampinen, while Incolumis is Jani Rantanen. They did a few collabs though, but Psylocke wasn't a collab. At least that's what I could find on Discogs.

    Yeah, I was confusing Psylocke with Outgate (one of Jani's aliases).

    Old school progressive circa. 2000, where there was both an emphasis on groove and melody. Usually the build is long, and the track would build up layer by layer until the breakdown arrives quite late on, around two-thirds of the track in. You get that release of tension from the long build alongside the euphoric / uplifting melodies that rush in during the break. The climax can go down the melodic or techy route (similar to the build) but would be equally powerful.

    Blue Amazon - And Then The Rain Falls (Ocean Wave Dub)



    Odessi - Moments of Space (although i recommend you to listen to the sped-up version on the Renaissance Awakening comp which is a lot more driving or trancey so to speak)



    Bullit - Cried To Dream (Max Graham Remix) - special attention to the break here! the strings that come in alongside the main riff are absolutely stunning, one of the best harmonic progressions in the genre imo.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FBb5hGTAwhA

    In comparison, modern progressive lacks this sort of contrast and thoughtfulness in its progression. We call it 'progressive' simply because it is slower than uplifting, but it often doesn't really 'progress' and there's a lack of development between the different sections of the track.

    I see our chats were really productive.

    On that 'progressive doesn't progress', was the genre called progressive because it was more 'advanced' or futuristic when compared to uplifting? I mean, there are a few meanings of the word progressive.

    Just to say something else than Fredjan, because that is definitely a sound I miss - another one is these kinds of aggressive, yet melodic and subtle sounds from the early 90's like Metal Master's fantastic Spectrum and Vernon's Wonderer from '93





    It's just so organic and well-put-together and I honestly don't know if these sounds are being recreated anywhere - if they are, I surely don't know where to look!

    The electro-trance crossover from 05-09 is also something i miss too. Quite a number of unique tracks came out from this style, as each track had its own unmistakable groove which stood out in trance-predominant sets, where most tracks simply have a very by-the-books off-beat or rolling bassline. Shame this style hasn't been explored more over the years, and in some way it has been replaced by trouse post-2010.
