Genre Description[]

Trance music is a form of Dance music that is often repetative and hypnotic in its repetition. It is often at about 130-160 BPM and features a morphing, evolving set of patterns betweens the drum tracks and the synth lines. It was particularly popular in the 1990s. The KLF are thought of as starting Trance, or at least bringing it to the forfront with their "What Time Is Love?".
