trance is dead; this sound was played out years ago
on March 17, 2013
This is truly proof that trance is dead. I used to dig these Year Mixes back in the day so I thought I'd give it a try. Same played out formula to the tracks, same played out vocals, same played out synth, same played out BPM and bass beat on EVERY song (well that's an Armin specialty having absolutely no deviation or change in tempo from the continuous boom boom boom high frequency bass drum beat). No wonder people have left this dinosaur for electro/prog/tech house, dubstep, DnB, etc. The Top 100 on Beatport never has any trance tracks. What a surprise...
You'd probably like this if you JUST started getting into the EDM scene and this is your first taste of trance music. It's decent for trance, but man this genre JUST....STAYS....THE.....SAME! Seriously, same songs since the '90s.
