There has been no new trance in the Top 40 or even being played by the likes of radio 1 since the cover of Roxette's Listen To Your Heart by DHT and Edmee in late 2005 even that as a one off for the time, as house had taken over as a chart force by then.

I just think its weird given the number of people who look back fondly to the trance era.

I know some say Porter Robinson - language was trance, but most say that was progressive house.

Opinions please...

I always saw the end of the trance "era" as early-mid 2003 - there's a few hits over the next few years but they generally went low top 40 or didn't stay around long.

I'd also argue the last true "trance" top 40 hit was Flio & Peri's 'Anthem' in December 2007, which just sneaked in at #39 although the genre had completely lost commercial success by then -


For me it's by far my favourite dance genre, and despite complaints that half the songs sound the same, I can listen to almost any of them - especially during its 1999-2003 peak - and absolutely adore them. I like to think there'll be a major revival sometime this decade but I've got horrible visions of Tinie Tempah/Pitbull etc rapping over the top of Carte Blanche, so maybe it is best it stays in the past tongue.gif

Alan Walker's Faded I think at least sounds trance-esque, it's not proper trance but it's the closest we've got to a big trance hit in a long time...

It's really quite strange, there's been similar 'revivals' in sound for a lot of similar early 00s dance sound, and that can still be heard today, yet this has remained lodged in the past, I would think it would still have commercial appeal as well? It's probably my favourite dance genre so it's a bit sad to see sad.gif

(I remember 'Anthem', great song <3)

I thought the Alan Walker track sounded more like mild dubstep like Sub Focus - Tidal Wave. I would say the Kygo and Kodaline track was most similar to trance.

Yes there have been some early and mid 00s dance revival examples recently and the new Clean Bandit track sounds a bit like something that came out of the funky house boom c. summer 2004 - summer 2006, the Sigala, DJ Fresh and Imani track 'Say You Do' sounded like Fly On The Wings Of Love mixed with drum and bass and the 99 Souls track was like 'Out of Touch' by Uniting Nations or 'The Weekend' by Michael Gray. And in 2013 the big room house songs did sound like the old early 00s hard house like Scooter a bit smile.gif

I general, concerning trance, there has been nothing in the charts with the lovely atmospheric trancey whirring in the background of this.

David Guetta and Vassy's Bad had some very trancey music in the verse.

I used to miss trance music in the charts when the dance music in the charts became shit and too poppy (my opinion of course), but now I've accepted it as a thing of the past. Although just once I would like to transport back to 2000 and see how club life was back then.

I hadn't heard that 'Anthem' song before but it sounds nice.

I think songs like 'Faded' are the closest we're going to get to trance in the chart, I accepted long time ago that big trance songs like Sandstorm/Insomnia weren't ever going to make a comeback sad.gif

That's progressive house. (though I guess it kinda has a trancey feel to it).

Not even close, it's progressive house. His only trance song that made the top 40 in the UK is "Communication" in 2000.

It's debatable. I'm not too sure myself if it's progressive house or trance, it does sound a lot less trancey than Armin's usual stuff though but that's cause it's more commercial.

Beatport classifies it as trance though so we'll go with that.

We can definitely agree it's not trance in the same way as the early 00s stuff was trance anyway.

Yeah, it could go both ways however even if the song isnt especially trance, there are definitely trance elements in the song that may hint it to be so.

I would have mentioned Language but that probably falls into the same category as This Is What It Feels Like - although it is a bit more trance-ish than it. It is time we had another big trance hit though!

What exactly is the definition of trance music/what makes it differ from other dance genres?

And so will funky house smile.gif That was around in the charts at the same time as trance and a bit after too reaching its peak in the mid 00s before dull electro took off. As will like Scooter-esque stuff too also around at the same time, Scooter were great too, Nessaja and Weekend were great tunes as was Posse (I need you on the Floor) and of course the Logical Song. Such a great time for dance music. We haven't heard much of any of the main early and mid 00s dance styles this decade, so it would be great hearing them again.

Anyway, Dobbo, do you have solid examples of the 20 year rule actually taking place?

there’s an opportunity to make a lot of money from a trance bubble, similar to that of the edm one of this decade, so imo it's a matter of when not if we'll see a revival~

isn’t the retro clock supposed to be 25 years? in which case we’ve just clicked into 1991, now we just need a canadian male to spend an inordinate amount of time at #1... kink.gif heehee.gif

Trance making a comeback would be very appreciated, it's hands down the most consistent type of dance for me and by that reckoning my favourite type. At least the early 00s version, the more recent ones with trance influences being mentioned are less consistent.

It won't come back in the same way I doubt, just a phase shift from these trance-influenced tracks about now into something more recognisably trance. Which we'll probably then invent a new subgenre for.

The retro clock thing I always see as being 15-25 years, more towards the earlier end, true, but we've had the beginnings of early 00s throwbacks in other genres so it may not be far off.

I think the last top 10 trance hit was Miracle by Cascada in March 2007, but that was more pop trance
