The word didn't even exist then did it Smile

Storm had me in a trance at the Brixton Academy early 90s when someone played it an Orb gig - one of those moments.

Trance before it went overground was a forerunner to alot of deejays getting back into techno which around that time was quite heavy with your Damon Wilds etc 'In the ole days' (said in the style of Terry Wogan) you ' d hear Trance alongside heavy techno..the two styles were releatively close in those days give or take the odd souless germanic monster, from DJ Dag.


Sabresonic with the good Lord Sabre was immersed in many a track on Eye Q, Harthouse etc There' ll be many an old fogey whose be going out the best party of 20-25 years to clubs in town who had a penchant for the more electronic sound with many a trance record[s] or labels tucked away behind all there nu-disco, re-edits and old disco record they bought long after they were buying trance.


exactly. drum club was part of all that too - although maybe not quite as intense as sabersonic. in the early days down there you would hear uk prog next to basic channel and frankfurt trance. it was great.

i didn't start getting corrected on terminology until much later i think. early on anything that wasn't house or breaks was trance or 'progressive' whatever that meant.

Defo, Drum Club was cerebral but Sabres was a different kind of cerebral that usually ended with a big ole bang, listen to Charlie & Lols remixes back then, more trance than proggy house and techno and I' m with you Dave, the electronic scene in London was a schmorgasboard of styles with deejays trying to find their feet/sound, heady days.

That Badelli 12" from a couple of years WELL sounds like prog house.


That House on House record from earlier this year (Rushing to Paradise?) is pretty trancey I think

Jam & Spoon - Stella

Jam & Spoon - Follow Me, reminds me of what me & Mr Mothersole were talking about re. the smoke and its clubs in the early 90's. This record would kill it, alongside Vapourspace on Plus 8.

Vapourspace - Gravitational Arch of 10

Ia Agoria trance?

I have spent the whole day sorting my record collection out, cleaing, sleeving and catalogueing (only three more weeks of whole days to go) and I found about 5 Agoria records from maybe 7/8 years ago. Maybe 6 in fact. I must have liked that at some point to buy it, so maybe i am a cheeky trance fiend after all.

Anyone fancy coming to gatecrasher?

when I think of the slightly more commercial dutch brand of house, I tend to associate it with the mid 90s eg patrick prins TO THE BEAT OF THE DRUM BANG BANG Laughing out loud , klubbheads (who seemed to be ubiquitous for a while - didn't they rip off wildchild - renegade master?), and the fresh fruit label (rene et gaston, klatsch, jark prongo) which was ace.

I remember you playing this at the time Dave, G Explorer has got an almost Wild Pitch vibe to it.

Although I wouldn't call any of these tracks trance to be fair, as I said this deserves another thread really.

that's another one i'd forgotten about neville. just played it on youtube and it sounded good still.

totally agree with you that this type of stuff was never really trance - it was a style all of it's own. you could spot a fresh fruit, touche, pssst, spiritual, work etc record as dutch house / techno within a few bars.

Presume that a lot of the good stuff happened during my musical wilderness years (otherwise known as the early onset of middle-age sensibilities), occasionally pick up a handful of CD singles from charity shops randomly based on interesting sounding titles or sleeve art.

This along with a few others nestles in my guilty pleasures pile
