The Future of Trance

Trance is a genre of electronic music that developed in the early 1990s. It is characterized by a tempo usually between 130 and 150 beats per minute, repeating melodic phrases, and a musical form that builds up and breaks down throughout the song. Early trance was influenced by techno and house music. By the mid-1990s, trance had begun to gain mainstream popularity in Europe. In the late 1990s, trance music became more commercialized, with artists such as Trance Energy and Ferry Corsten becoming popular. In the early 2000s, trance music became more mainstream with the success of British DJ Paul Oakenfold. In recent years, trance has made a comeback with new subgenres such as Uplifting Trance and Progressive Trance becoming popular.
