Just sommat I thought of to chat about:
Trance didn't just happen for me. I have kinda been on a journey that has bought me here today. So I am wondering how did you find Trance, or it find you?
Personally... well here's my little story:
I have always liked music. When I was a lot younger (in da 80's) I always preferred the music one could jump and dance around to. Even back then I wasn't into listening to lyrics. I just wanted to hear the sound. But it wasn't until I laid eyes and ears on the RUN DMC album 'Raising Hell' I really took any real notice of any music.
From Run DMC I soon progressed from RAP & HIP HOP to House, Rave, Techno etc.
Into the 90's and many a night was spent listening to Pete Tong or Danny Rampling on the radio. In time I was doing the dance scene and came across the likes of Sasha, John Digweed, Oakenfold, Carl Cox, Judge Jules & even Boy George.
Since I first heard it way back I have always had a fondness of Chicago House. At the time it seemed so very raw and like nothing I had ever heard. Another big sound that brought me down this route was 'Quadraphonia'. To this day I can remember walking into the club and hearing that for the first and just standing there with my jaw on the floor. It just blew me away.
Anyway the natural progression seem satisfied once I found Trance. It kinda grabs you by ya soul.... Heaven.
