In understanding why I like trance music, it probably helps to remove the connotations of the word “rave” from your mind and instead focus on thinking about “trance” in terms of a mental state of being.


It’s interesting in that trance actually has a unique sort of “organic” nature to it that I don’t really find in other music forms.  I know that sounds weird because trance is all about digital (well, or analog) synths and electronic sounds and everything, but when you’re losing yourself in a pumping sidechained bassline, the “flow” of the music, or the “feel” of the rhythm can be very organic to me, in that the sounds wash over you like an ocean, rather than “just notes” being played by musical instruments. (yes yes i’m overgeneralizing)
