Tech Trance – Trance Styles Guide

Beat Explorers Guide to Tech Trance

Like most genres, there’s a lot of different styles of trance. Wikipedia has a decent list of these styles, but it’s a bit light on examples. Instead of going through the history of each subgenre (as this is probably documented elsewhere) I’ll dive into the basic characteristics that define each of these styles, and provide a whole bunch of examples so that you can identify them.

Update: This tech trance style guide has been replaced with a much more functional, less clunky version over at The Dance Music Guide!
