Armin van Buuren: "The fun is coming back into trance"
I recall that dark period where trance wasn't fun. We had people in business suits rocking up to events just to do their taxes in the middle of the dance floor. You could sit down with a colleague in the chill-out area and all you'd be talking about was financial investments and superannuation. Over in the corner, your best mate would be chatting shit to some guy he just met about politics. And even worse, whenever you went to hit on a girl, she'd be more interested in how big your stamp collection was.

Dark days indeed.

Slightly contradictory there Armin. He says trance music is constantly changing, yet it is still melodic, uplifting, energetic and 138bpm. In one phrase, he's narrowly confined a genre, which, on a good day, has (or had, depending on one's view) a lot more to offer than melodic uplifting tunes at 138bpm.

The fun has always been in trance, the crowds go off and are prepared to religiously devote themselves to particular DJs, even when those DJs go off on self-indulgent tangents. Perhaps then Armin is referring to the other trance DJs and producers, maybe they took themselves a bit too seriously.

The fun is coming back, trance is becoming more serious, its broadly influenced, it's really getting back to its pure roots, its multi faceted, its its own thing, its trance... Sit ubu sit, good dog

What on earth is he talking about bpms with trance? Since when did bpms have anything to do with the genre? He's just referring to a popular style which sadly has been bastardized there is more to the genre than what's he's described and the examples he's given are the worst as well. Arty is a house producer.

I've seen Armin 5 times this year. I must say, if his set for Stereo is anything like the 2 sets I saw at ADE 2 weeks ago, you guys are in for something. His sets were banging!

Google experiment!

If you search for "serious trance", you get 647 results.
If you search for "fun trance", you get only 443 results!

I guess trance is too serious after all.
