Let’s talk about Trance

trance-musicAccording to the general definition of it; it is a genre of electronic music that developed during the early 1990s; in Germany and in Goa, India. It is characterized by a tempo lying between 125 and 150 beats per minute (BPM); repeating melodic phrases, and a musical form that builds tension and elements throughout a track often culminating in 1 to 2 “peaks” or “drops.”

Although it is a genre of its own, it liberally incorporates influences from other musical styles such as techno, house, pop, chill-out, classical, tech house, ambient, and film.

The origin of the term is uncertain, with some suggesting that the term is derived from the Klaus Schulze album Trancefer (1981) or the early trance act Dance 2 Trance.

Our company consists of various subgenres that have emerged from the independent music scene since the 1980s, such as grunge, Britpop, gothic rock, and indie pop. These genres are unified by their collective debt to the style and/or ethos of punk rock, which laid the groundwork for alternative music in the 1970s.
