    Your EDM Weakness

    I don't mean the weaknesses of EDM. I mean your weakness. And I'm not talking about a genre.

    What element of EDM music gives you goosebumps, and makes you scream, "I want that track!!"

    These, for me, apply inside of the trance genre.

    This biggest, for me, is when a track breaks down into something of a classical symphonic orchestra sound. Like in the tracks: Carl B Presents Khensu - Chasing Leaves [Original Mix] and First State - Evergreen [Original Mix]. I'm not a fan of classical music, but something about a trance track breaking down into a classical sounding piece, to me, is amazing!

    Second for me, has to be uplifts. When the track slows, and then it begins to uplift. And that single beat hits, that makes the track explode. Makes you feel like you're being lifted upto heaven right where you stand.

    Third, when it breaks down into a classical piece, then uplifts back into trance. Amazing!

    Sorry guys, couldn't pick one!

    So what are your picks?

    EDM is my weakness, so many different styles i like. but, like you eLement, the breakdowns that send you to heaven are a big YES, and also for me a sweet lyric such as "sky falls down" as an example makes me weak

    it would have to be that grungey deep electronic bass that comes from electro house with that videogamey feel to it found in tracks like Donald Glaude, DJ Dan - Stick Em or Wolfgang Gartner - Back To Front

    lol, my weakness has to be when the uplifiting tune is ending with a nice filter, or when a BIG scene is going to happen but ends up as a nice kick and bass such as the track -Thrill (Reflecting Diversity Mix)

    deep, strong and intelligent trance:

    Substate - Horizon
    Substate - The Following
    Aled Mann - Cause & Effect
    Activa - Genetic
    Activa - Flashpoint
    MK-S - Tempest
    MK-S - The Last Planet

    and so on...


    Extremely rare thing nowadays.
    Saw only a single track this year which fit the criteria:
    Mekk - Resistance (Activa vs Mekk Mix)

    if you heard know something similarly [keywords:] strong and intelligent, please, let me know.

    I agree with you on that
    Trance is a natural drug, that will heal us all.

    depends on my mood that day, but generally:

    long melodic breakdowns or orchestral ones like you said are my favorite.

    also, tech trance like SvD - apple or even darker tech..

    or sometimes some lovely vocals is enough to give me the shivers
