A sudden strong feeling of excitement, a thrill
Schools of thought argue the name may refer to an induced emotional feeling, high, euphoria, chills, or uplifting rush listeners experience, or the trance-like states the earliest forms of the music attempted to emulated in the early 1990s.
a trance or trance-like state in which an individual transcends normal consciousness. Expanded spiritual awareness, visions, or absolute euphoria
It is really frustrating to see some agencies telling their trance DJs to play ‘more house’ in the US because ‘trance is dead’. Unless we educate the next generation then yes, trance WILL be dead. I do like playing some housey tracks too but I can guarantee that I will never jump on that bandwagon “just to fit in”. -Arnej
