I would consider him more into EBM and Darkwave, amazing producer.


I haven't heard anything that fits that description. It all sounds like trance riffs to me.

His Warehouse Memories EP on ARTS is very nice.. However his newer stuff i hear just sounds like some cheap shite you'd hear in a tekken game or something.

All be it an amazing producer for sure, but i laugh when i read comments on youtube under some of his stuff - 'DIS IS REAL TECHN0!!!'

He certainly has a huge influence of those genres, and i would say that he brought into techno some sounds that were quite unknown to the scene.

Unless of course you were in to the whole melodic side of techno in the early 00`s with labels such as Bellboy records, Ascend and so on.
He`s just another in a long line of kids regurgitating the past.

I've been unabashedly infatuated with a lot of the neo-trance/melodic techno stuff that has been coming out for the past couple of years.

I would suggest checking out the Realms of Consciousness vol. 1 and vol. 2 compilations on Afterlife, then go after the artists found therein. My absolute favourite is Mind Aganst's Gravity from vol. 1:



Other labels to check out are Anagram, Taapion, Ressort Imprint, Etruria Beat, From Another Mind, Möd3rn (and it's parent Skryptöm) and Exile. There's also plenty of releases on other labels as well, but they tend to be more sporadic and not as consistent as on those already mentioned.

Some specific artists include Glós, Kapoor, Amotik, Synthek, Boston 168, KAS:ST and Blind Observatory, just to name a few. A lot of Sandwell District is also in the same vein, especially all things Function; Berghain's A-Ton has released two retrospective Function compilations with most of his best output in this category. Referring to the last tracks that amazed you thread, Voidloss' Meat Hook Beauty (Rhapsody at the Miniclub Edit) is a proper ending track for a set containing this type of sound (what do you think, Steve? Blasphemy?).

I think this type of sound is actually starting to fade back into the background and (more mainstream) techno is starting to bend towards the harsher again, and there's been a constant trickle of noisy industrial stuff as well, like Tar Hallow and Pi Electronics. But I digress.

Haha, no not blasphemy at all. I like to use some melody now and again.
I mean, I`m not sure this counts as trance, what we are talking about.
Techno has always had a melodic element, especially if we look right back to the detroit roots.
And techno, as repetitive music, has always been trance music, trance inducing.

In the early days trance and techno were a lot more blurred and crossed over.

Such as this very early classic example.


What became trance was essentially something with narrower boundaries. Offbeat emphasis, arpeggios, big major chord progressions.

But at it`s root, most techno is trance music.

I`m not sure what Trance New Wave even means. To me, all the stuff linked just seems to be techno.

I think newbies and millenials are so used pigeon holes with music genres, and also perhaps lack some knowledge of the music history. And techno has fallen in to this tedious trope of commercial music, where it moves through fashions and trends, rather than being continuously diverse, which further emphasises some idea of separation.

It`s just techno innit.

On one of my rare forrays into clubland this year.. I listened with interest to the warm up Djs, who appeared to be doing a laptop / traktor/ loopathon with some added stems of claps & percussion. I'd read about such things & that's what I believed it to be. It was all massive sub kick oompah oompah ( Steve V slang term) stuff. No real rhythm or groove apart from the 4/4 kick & maybe a hihat rattle loop swung to fuck in Ableton. Several white noise bursts.

Anyway.. there were one or 2 trancy tracks. I'd read about them too in some online article, referencing some kind of resurgence. Plodding subby, knocky kick track.. rattly hats, but with a euphoric tenancy arp on top. No groove again.. chords changing where you'd expect. Boring.

I remember being out in clubs where they played techhy trance. It was ok.. tolerable, but it predated the euphoric tiesto kinda sound.

Haven't listened to any if these tracks but i really think that they're not for me.
