    Sunset/Sunrise Trance

    What about another mood-based theme thread? Following in the footsteps of the theme-based topics made by @PeenutsDx

    What defines sunset trance for you? And on the opposite side, what defies sunrise trance?

    Sunset:
    The Roc Project ft. Tina Arena - Never (Filterheadz Luv Tina Remix)

    Sunrise:
    Filterheadz - Yimanya
    Way Out West - Killa (incl. Orkidea Remix)
    PvD - Nothing but You
    Galaxy - The Island
    Pretty much anything by Whirloop

    Both Filterheadz tracks make me feel like I'm in a beach, but at different points during the day. Yimanya feels happier, so I chose it to be my sunrise track. Never is more melancholic and laid-back, so it fits sunset better.
    I would say the more organic/atmospheric/tribal-y the track is, the better it fits both of these moods.

    This one is pretty obvious. For sunrise, it surely must be this, because it feels as its title suggests. The intro is phenomenal, and you can feel the morning mist and the first rays of sun.



    I tried making a track inspired by the early morning/sunrise, just with more elements trying to emulate different parts of the early morning - sun, mist, birds etc. Sounds very different than (and most certainly inferior to) Tiesto's masterpiece.

    Personally i find a lot of the softer, melodic progressive house/trance (e.g. on the Silk labels) would fit the sunrise sort of vibe. But i think we are referring to the more traditional trance here so i won't bother with that.

    What i look for in sunrise trance would be something more light-hearted but still relatively gentle and dreamy. Lighter, more varied percussion as well. This Cygnus X track is one. On the other hand, i don't have a particular sound in mind for sunset trance. I think a lot of trance can potentially fit into that sort of vibe. Something a bit more serious, expressive in tone than sunrise trance.

    Maybe. With tracks that sound so modern/technological I think of cold mountainous landscapes.

    He actually probably got help like this one was made by BT lol. It even has BT's signature on it but he takes credit for it sigh and not BT.

    Sunrise or Sunset, I feel the musical feelings and approach should be the same; softer, beautiful, slight groovy, melodic, feel good...nothing fast, hard, abrasive, melodramatic or explosive.

    Sunset harbours the beginning of the night, calm before the storm, a place to build the energy from and begin the momentum. Sunrise comes and you have been up all night giving everything, it is time to wind down and start bringing the pace of the mind back to where it began. So in my mind there is no opposite in the Sunrise and Sunset moods.
