I liked the sophisticated (dutch) trance(y) stuff.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GkaiX1tWMA8&feature=related

B side of this used to be my all time fav. Started it at the big break. Tomato rec UK.

http://www.discogs.com/Hole-In-One-X-Paradise-The-Remixes/release/48219

Gay Hurricane mix is still a fav.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wneK-Rjc_jk

Also the second track on the bside was my fav. Build up was way more intense. She has a way sample. That's why i needed to get a dw8000!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jn4XmCplnK0&feature=related
Dimitri track again.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CQe7h0SO8Kg&feature=related
That would get the girls shaking. Listed before

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PKwhj7oMPfY
Dutch classic Jeroen Verhey! Perc. Trance all the way.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bh1_wgmpLAg&feature=related
Dobre and ski at it again.

And for me the master was Kenny Larkin as a producer. Not really trance but more like c2 version 2.

might well have been. i heard the intended last record was meant to have been 'the end' by the specials, but inevitably it carried on after that.

http://arkona-creation.org/releases - lots of well decent tracks on that label

I'm fairly semi-detached and out of touch with psy - much more reliable picks than from me but it's mostly still home to a huge chunk of the best sounds in music

I would mostly like people within psy world to maybe listen to a slightly broader range of sounds and especially for people in lots of other scenes to listen to more psy - because check out the sounds they use!!!

psy has defo been the perfect soundtrack at some times / places - especially on a big rig outside - but i also love the way it feels to dance to 2step / afrobeat / chicago house & early jungle - and it's almost impossible to find music that funks and sounds beautiful in the way psy does - defo a gap in the market!

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.


Yes Sabresonic was the place during that time, and as Dave said . . . Heavy!! I think it was possibly the least amount of girls I have have ever scene in a club*, not the sort of place to go and pull!! As mentioned all Harthouse and plus8 stuff big down there, remember Teste - The Wipe sounding amazing in there.
Adrian Sherwood took over one night in there for dub night, good, but I don't remember too much dancing going down!
Managed to grab a Lord Sabre Bastard Bunny t-shirt one night as well (I still have it)

*I'm thinking more along the lines of straight clubs there

A bit of heavy from Dave Clark . . .

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SB5h5Z8peDs&feature=related

Hardfloor - Acperience 1 was the game charger though, would love to here it out again on a good system.
Listening back to it after many years, that acid is funky!!

Bloody Nora!! (As we used to say) . . .

Nice quote from label-owner Frankie Bones from Discogs:

"This was the jump-off release for my label Atmosphere Records. And a perfect record which for 1989 was nothing short of amazing. This is what the label wanted. My vision was music that was Atmospheric. The word trance somehow is how I remember it. Because it was not house, it was not techno. It kind of had this electro-ish, hypnotic trancey feeling to the vibes in those grooves. Anyway Mundo Muzique was a musical genius if you ask me.I am glad I can look back 16 years and think "Wow, this still is some amazing stuff."


"Style:
Breakbeat, Trance, Electro"

Not sure anyone buying these releases in UK called it "Trance" at the time, breakbeat, yes, techno, yes, electro, yes.

It was played at raves mainly, which led alot of people to wrongly label stuff as rave music, to me rave was the event, not the music.

Shelley's:- https://www.facebook.com/groups/104086546312991/

When I think of the word trance in terms of UK, long after Criminal Justice Bill and death of raves, scumbags involved in scum substances, shit nighclubs filled with idiots dressed in tutu's painted in dayglo trying to hard to be snapped by some mixmag paparazzi, mixmag and dj hanging onto the crumbs, feeding the youth with the druggy week afterhours messed up scraps.

I think of it as muzak for people on shit drugs.

"Teste - The Wipe"
that charmingly named track turned up on an epic of a triple CD compilation. It's incredible looking back at how diverse and yet sort of cohesive all the futurist sounds on it were

R & S in order to dance 5[RS94036 CD X]

"When I think of the word trance in terms of UK"
I think of Megadog tours with Underworld, Dave Angel, Eat Static, Bandulu, System7, DJ Evolution, Nitin Sawnhey & Spooky. Then Return to the Source at Brixton Academy and Science Fiction/Otherworld/Samsara at the fridge. I think back to brewing up magic mushrooms and sipping in the queue or candy-flipping MDMA with nibbles of LSD chasers. Plus smoking pipes of soap bar and partying with people I now know as university academics, parents, teachers, health professionals and artists.

I recall asking an Amsterdam doorman c.1993 what kind of sounds they were playing inside:

"140 to 200" came the response. No ta.

Had a few Plus 8/Nova Mute/Sabrettes 'Pink Me Up' and the like but they were a natural 'buffer zone' beyond which I had no interest.

Vainqueur – Lyot (Maurizio mix) might be my definition of top-drawer trance. Heavier spectrum end, mind you, though not really trance whatever anyone's take on it all.

Or perhaps "Partying with people I now know as street cleansing operatives, Lidl trainees, mental health workers or those on the breadline".

: ) goa trance did seem to come in for a bit of a kicking from some music journos at the time. perhaps some of it was some sort of prejudice against perceived wealthy people involved in scene

i remember hallucinogen's classic LSD album being dismissed with 3stars or whatever in the same issue of djmag that gushed over a reissue of a larry levan paradise garage set. shame really - lots on twisted recs is utterly brilliant music

carl cox f.a.c.t comp did a good job at smudging the boundary between techno and trance

+1 for oliver lieb stuff too. i really like the chillage he did on recycle or die offshoot of eyeQ/harthouse and on FAX


+1'00 to +1'26" might be my favourite ever snippet of recorded music

return to the source dj mark allen (of quirk) solo 2002 on plusquam


heather's tracks - from harthouse in 1995


carl craig remix of system 7 from 2011


system 7 have probably made more of the best music than any other producers. miquette giraudy is more techno and steve hillage more trance they say but the list of people they have worked with is epic: marshall jefferson, alex patterson, youth, carl craig, slackbaba, eat static, derrick may, talvin singh & more...Their tunes cover a broad range of vibes/tempos/beats but always sound brilliant

I agree....loads of new stuff sounds like slowed down prog house with a hypnotic trippy feel, I would say a fair bit of new stuff classed as disco sounds a bit like trance to me...

a lot of the Norwegian sounds lean towards the proggy trancy side of things, Lindstrom...Todd...Torske & Prins...its not a bad thing, as its often said 'there are two types of music...good or bad'...

I know there has been, and you lot will tell me - but I despise trance. I always thought of it as music for people who dont like music, which is snobbish i know - but it really is wank. All my mates used to bum lord oakenfold where as I couldnt stand it, and I got told to listen to some Deadmau5 tonight and had a little go - lordy, what a load of cronk.

However, I appreciate I listen to a small section of trance, and if I think hard enough there used to be some good stuff on Bonsai (I think), and I used to maybe know a little bit of that purist trance stuff they had on at raves - but i think its going to take something mighty to convince me its not music for cunts. So please, take it away...


Any overall thoughts? Don't mean to sound facetious, genuine question Wink
