What's new

Music - any Trance, EDM or old skool dance fans out there?

from my observations and conversations - coaster enthusiasts tend to be a very indie lot or at least into rock based music including many a metalhead!

So where are the old-skool ravers amongst you? My particular passion is Trance music but I generally love most vocal house-based music especially from the 1993-2005 era - including lots of obscure euro tracks.

I have a lot of mainstream artist in my collection but they always tend to be the dance mixes - as i tend to search my remixer than artist! I miss the days of cd singles with all the mixes!

what are your favourite dance tracks?

I really enjoy that era of trance (which is weird and I know it because I'm American which means in like 2014 - 2016 I had to listen to everyone being like have you heard of Tiesto???). Airbase - Genie gives me chills like mad to this day. :)

Me!!!

My a regular goer to trance, techno and house events! Trance being my favourite genre of music! I’ve recently starting DJing and I host a trance event in Liverpool called Coda.

I have so many favourite classic trance tunes, Fiji (Lange remix) being my all time favourite!

House, Big Room, Teance (vocal/psy), early 00s Techno...I used to get down with Happy Hardcore... I'll try anything really, some trap/dub.... but not about real real hardstyle. Been going to EDC here for the last 5 years or so as far as festivals but also done a whole bunch of club shows and a few arena shows as well over the past 15 years or so.

For me - jump blues always gets me going. Give me a 1 4 5 with horns and piano and I'll dance all night long. I remember some music theory class where they explained how and why Blues, and blues progressions got so popular. It's a primal thing, you can't ignore it.

Who doesn't love a bit of classic euro dance?!

'Dance' as a catch-all is pretty much all I'll listen to. Swedish House Mafia, Alesso, Avicii, Arty, Laidback Luke, I used to spend my Friday nights listening to Annie Mac, Judge Jules and then Pete Tong (before Radio 1 went to ****e).

Tend to go for the more classic stuff if I need chilling out - think the Kevin and Perry soundtrack.

Soft spot for dubstep considering it was birthed 10 minutes down the road from me (even though I can appreciate unless you listen to the dark/old school stuff it is mostly total S***e), and after pendulum got hooked on drum and bass. Don't really F with the EDM scene even though I like a lot of the harder music (cali trap, riddim, dubstep, bass house, future bass etc.) because I find it's a very plastic fanbase compared to UK genres. Don't wanna mosh to chicken soup thanks.

Done 39 raves/gigs/events/festivals in the last 3 years of my life, nothing quite hits the same euphoric feeling as dancing to your favourite music off your face with some of your best friends.

I have heard and grown fond of a random handful of Trance over time, ones like 'Everything is Beautiful' strike a chord with me. Its the mostly likely genre I would have ended up being into. But I somehow long ago ended up listening to liquid DnB. No regrets but also have yet to find someone into that and coasters.

Liquid is great. BCee, Ownglow, Logistics, S.P.Y, Perez, Netsky, Dawn Wall, Mohican Sun, GLXY, Mitekiss, Keeno, Hybrid Minds... the list goes on and on and on. Great genre of music.

EDIT: I'm really into the deeper stuff - nice melodic deep rolling basslines, not too fond of the (in my opinion) slightly watered down names you often find on the likes of liquicity, having said that their 10 years compilations were full of amazing tracks. DnB in general is just a fun genre, can't go wrong with it.
