I am a big fan of trance and euro-styled dance – especially when I’m trying to concentrate, and so the turn of the century was a magical time for me. But as the years crept up, the genres kept… diverging. So rather than liking most of a genre, now I’ll like only select bits, because some artists simply go nuts with one element and try to make that the entirety of their music.
Dubstep is horrible about this – I love me a filthy bass drop, but you can’t have bass drops alone, folks. So it’s a magical day when I find myself someone who makes some seriously good old-style trance.
Even if they go by a silly name like “The TranceMaster”… because in his case, he deserves the title.
Domenico Pandolfo – who yes, does go by “The TranceMaster” – creates some serious trance to delight your ears. Go take a listen on Jamendo and try his tunes out for free. He hovers right around 130bpm for most everything, which is great for concentrating and exercising.
