From our buddy Mr. Wikipedia:
Trance is a style of electronic music that developed in the 1990s. Trance music is generally characterized by a tempo of between 130 and 160 BPM, featuring repeating melodic synthesizer phrases, and a musical form that builds up and down throughout a track. It often features crescendos and breakdowns. Sometimes vocals are also utilized. The style is arguably derived from a combination of largely electronic club music such as ambient music, techno, and house.
Gabi’s playlist tonight focuses on early Trance, and Trance from the 1990s…although she is slipping some more current Trance into the mix just for fun. Join her, Host Christine McAllister-Pearse and the Gen Xers at Timeless Underground tonight!
