Why is EDM in the Trance Section
Everyone knows EDM isn't trance, far from it, it's house with the added flourish of overused rocket/explosion effects, mega drops and someone yelling out 'OK mutha fuckas JUMP' somewhere in the middle of the track. Does that sound like trancey music to you? Hell no.

Therefore I peition EDM to be moved in the House section where it rightly belongs. k thankx.

Because it's tradie trance.

But seriously, because we put a lot of discussion into this a year ago, and everyone had the chance to have their say, and here we are. It ain't perfect but it's done.

Modern mainstream 'trance' and EDM are pretty damn similar

I don't even know why there is a section to include EDM. Shouldn't that be left for the inthemix.com main page?

I don't think you'll hear many 138bpm tracks sounding anything like EDM, for that you need to head into 'progressive' territory. A place where Tritonal, Estiva, Sander Van Doorn et. al. happily reside, churning out festival bangerz whilst crying into their featherdown pillows at night.

Maybe EDM should be expelled to it's very own section, whereby clicking on it earns the unsuspecting gurner a permaban and instant redirection to blue light.

i remember when these forums got expanded from one music area to 10 or something.

good god social media has killed music forums.

just go to trancefix.nl or whatever if you are pining for a trance forum.
Something Coming.

This is not a bump, just came to ITM looking for something - well my old Portfolio, but got the 404, then tried to Login, and apparently I already was. Just putting a post here, to see what comes up in my Profile, and what I can access.

Yeah when did EDM and Trance become conjoined??
