Breaks in the liberation lounge at the Docks back in 06-07 was pretty stellar. Had some really good times in that room and damn could some of them dance!

Armin was the one who killed trance IMO.

Trance to me was chopped up vocals, and wizzy, trippy sounds all put together to put you into a trance. We had simple melodies, sometimes tunes you could hum. But for the post part, it would be pretty hard to hum old trance tunes.

Then came Armin (after 2000). Trance got infused with piano (and other strings) synths, and very clear, simple vocals. Djs were able to air-piano their way through songs. It catered a lot more to the general public, because they like songs they can sing, and hum in cars.

Notice how radio edits started showing up? Radio edits of old trance tunes were not possible because they were completely radio unfriendly.

From my own experiences, I started spending a lot less money on trance, whether it was live shows, or CDs. I put up with it for a while, still going to see Armin, and Ferry...etc. But I was so disappointed again and again, that I totally abandoned it. I feel like there were a lot of people out there like me.

There are plenty of good artists out there, but it just became so hard to find them. Going through beatport, for every 30 songs I tried, only 1-2 were worth actually buying. That is a lot of time wasted to find two good songs. That's the whole reason I listened to DJs, they sort through the BS for me. But when they started to push the BS, it was time for me to get out.

J00F kept it real, but I need more variety than just one good trance DJ. Plus, the psy-side of trance was good, but not my fav.



This.

As for breaks, anyone remembe infusion or the back room of system? Someone should do a breaks night, haven't seen one in a very very long time....
