Hey, Trancefamily! Tell Me How You First Learnt About Trance And What Your Favorite Track Is???I got into EDM in general about 3 years ago when I first came to Malaysia. I went to Ferry Corsten's gig at Zouk club in december, and that was when I fell in love with him and the music he makes in particular. I didn't know what was going on with me. Also a lot of people have this stereotypical misbelief that those who listen to trance are druggies. Totally not true. You don't need drugs to get high, the music is enough. Trance outs you into an absolutely different state of mind. The melodic buildups and the drops, it all somehow manages to combine into something which can change your mood in a heartbeat. Look back at the presenters of classical music and you will see that trance and classic are not that different. Both have emphasis on melody, flow, and the notes. I also enjoy progressive house, deep house and techno at times.
Ever since that night I started following up the latest trends of EDM, I have a lot of favorites by now. But some are just legendary. For me those are Ferry Corsten, Marcus Schulz, Heatbeat (Matias Faint in particular, just because he's freaking cute and super talented, I also got to meet him in person, a friend of mine was organizing their gig in Kuala Lumpur) and Simon Patterson as well. And lots of others.
My current favorite is Heatbeat_Rocker Monster and Aly&Fila_We control the sunlight.
What is yours?
