Trance music is experimental electronic (opposite to instrumental) dance music which orients around harmonious sound textures (a.k.a. melody textures).

It originated back in late 80's but became an official genre in 1993. Since then trance producers started to form definition in various ways, what led to creation of many trance sub-genres.. Some of the most known are:

(1) Progressive trance - lowers ratio between melody progression and melody texturing to some solid level..
(2) Epic & Anthem trance - emphasizes sound melody more than melody texturing. This trance-sellout led to big disappointment for original-trance listeners
(3) Psychedelic trance - changed the sound texturing dimension.. original trance tried to make a repetitive sound by combining complex layers of melody textures.. psy-trance tried to make it more progressive in time - by making it more complex in gating

Opposite to trance is techno - which orients around non-harmonic (percussive) textures.
Age Of Love - Age Of Love (classic trance)
Energy 52 - Cafe Del Mar (progressive trance)
L.S.G. - Netherworld (dark-progressive trance)
Paul Van Dyk - For An Angel (epic trance)
Infected Mushroom - Acid Killer (psy-trance)
Astral Projection - Mahadeva (goa trance)

A type of electronic music, usually around 130-140 bpm, but can also be slower or faster. Most songs have some sort of break that is all atmospheric and then gradually builds up and the beat kicks in again.

Its called trance because people say it usually puts them into a dreamy and uplifting mood.

While trance is one of the leading styles in EDM scene. There are many people that hate trance, because they think it is boring and repetitive and lacks creativity unlike more artistic genres such as minimal techno. But mostly people get that illusion because they don't hear the good trance and just hear songs that are so basic, you'd think they were created using some calculated formula...

While trance music has changed a lot over the years and it seems like its getting too soft, there is still some trance out there that is way out of the box and keeps pushing the boundaries of the style combining the best of current and old EDM and is just purely mindblowing. Such music is a massive pleasure to listen to once you find it.
A: "Hey, I just listened to this really old album by BT. Wow! Why didnt i ever hear of him before?"

B: "Its because all the kids are busy listening to the cheesy and repetitive crap from people like Basshunter and you never really hear the good artists. Thats why all those other techno-heads are hatin' on trance.."
