Hey, I'm not the type of person who goes clubbing all the time, but whenever I hear that kind of music, I always really enjoy listening, so I was wondering if any of you guys have any recommndations?

This is kind of a bad example, but this is sort of what I'm looking for:

Not a perfect example, but I figured it might help.

That type of music is considered Trance. Personally I think that is a bit of a commercial track, and not very good, but hey, everyone has to start somewhere. I'd look into Paul Van Dyk, ATB, BT, DJ Tiesto, and Sasha. If you want to find some DJ Sets of this, or look into other type of electronic music, then do a google search for "DJ Mix Sets" or "DJ Live Sets", ect.

And I'm sure you'd get better recommendations in the Techno and Dance Thread, in the other forum, in the bands and artist forum.

Trance ay?

Try some Sash! If you prefer less cheesy/Euro stuff try Sasha.

Heh, yeah. Underworld, Orbital and Boards of Canada are the only Electronica bands I listen to, where I know the artist. Te rest I'm just listening to on Shoutcast radio or something, and I never know what the song title, album or artist is.

Ugh I can't stand any radio anywhere, I prefer choosing what I''m listening to.

I never said I liked the Producers I listed, I just suggested them based on the fact that he likes Underworld.

I love PsyTrance but I don't like the Infected Mushrooms at all. Which is wierd, because they seem to be very popular for Psy. They sound more like an Industrial Band with heavy PsyTrance influences, than straight up Psy to me. And I don't like Industrial at all.

Well then if you've heard at least two tracks of each album you'll see they used to be straight up pystrance and they change alot on every album., but now if you've been on the myspace page you'll see they have live guitar/bass and singing/drums whatever. It's actually 5 guys live. And they are trying to bring the guitar into dance music more.


And underworld isn't trance.

Just wanted to say thanks, and here's why:

On just about every music recommendation thread I've seen, when people ask for something that isn't Metal, users always have to name a song from a Metal artist because it barely has a similar quality to the recommendations requested. I expected at least one person to reply with:

"John Petrucci has synthesizers on [insert random album], so it's kind of electronic. Check that out."

I don't know about you, but I've seen that here a lot.

Really? Every song I've checked out has guitars in it. I'll check into their older stuff when I have time. And one of the reasons I like Dance music is because there is no guitar, everywhere I go I here music with guitars and I get so sick of it. I love synths, because they are capable of countless different timbres.

And if underworld isn't considered trance, then what is it?

It's not metal, but I found "Party Hard" by Andrew W.K. to be a good rock party song.

On the gathering (album) and classical mushroom (also album) they have tiny guitar bits, but it's like one note really drawn out to be a pad.


Underworld is techno. I'm pretty sure.

I'll check out that album.

No. A lot of people call it techno, but that's because that's what alot of people call all Dance. I'm pretty sure Trance is the proper genre. Actual techno is really repetitive, monotonous, mechanical sounding music, usually with little melody.

No actually techno is the proper genre. Trance is faster and has more gated basslines.

I don't listen to trance other than psytrance though. But I'm pretty sure they are considered techno.

I know better than to call all dance music techno, I make psytrance lol.

I just counted the BPM on that song, and I got 138, which is typical for Trance. Most trance is between 130BPM and 140BPM. And all of the techno I've heard is really repetitive and mechanical. I've never heard techno that sounds like Underworld before.

Alright then I'll go with you for now, I'm just going on what I know. I thought trance was around 140-150.

Checking it out. It used to think that Trance would be more similar to Psytrance. I thought that "follow me" is House for years .

That first one is Happy Hardcore. I wish I didn't click that link, Happy Hardcore always makes me feel sad. And for some good PsyTrance http://www.ektoplazm.com/section/free-music/ has tons of free albums, by artists that don't care about money. And most of them can be downloaded at CD quality too.

Some trance can be in that range, mainly Psy Trance. But the majority of it, like Epic, Commercial, Progressive, ect. are mostly 130-140. I mix Hard Trance, and that's also usually in the 140-150 range. But besides the harder, or more experimental subgenres, it's typically 140-150.
