The Situation with Trance is Bad in the Uk
I used to like trance I got into it when i was Djing in Spain in 1997
It was massive in the Uk in 1998 1999 and started fading out in 2000
Basically the music got worse and pop trance appeared.
Also it became harder or more repetitive, a lot of people who liked trance then went off to the harder clubs or the more progressive clubs.
The Big trance clubs like Cream Gate Crasher Golden e.t.c have all suffered and are rarely open these days.
There are still many smaller clubs playing good trance and techno but its not as big as it was and seems to be getting smaller at the moment.
At the end of the day good music is good music. I think when trance was huge in 98 and 99 the clubs like gatecrasher were fun. You could dress up like a nutter and go mental. These days its not as much fun.
I like House music, which could be a lot of things, people say techno and i say well it sounds like house to me. People say trance and i think well that sounds like house to me too.
If i like it, i like it if i don't, i don't regardless of what catagory sub catogory or sub sub catagory they put it in.
I must admit i don't like my music too fast or too minimal.
