What I want here and would certainly be ideal fo me is a separate trance channel that plays just pure uplifting trance singles with regular updates not progressive in anyway or form and that automatically updates the title of the song that is playing so i dont have to rely on the unlikely appearance of a dj to tell me what's playing as happens so frequently in the main trance channel forum Plus a forum to post my comments on as on the main trance channel. This kind of thing I propose already exists at another station I go to and works wonderfully well. So I know its possible to do this. And I love it. So why not here? :smile:
I can see a lot of people would like a 100% uplifting trance radio, but I am definitely not a fan of that. Way too many tracks would be played way too many times and it would get really boring. I definitely prefer a mixture of progressive dj sets and some uplifting trance sets. There are a lot of different edm genres and it would be stupid to only play one kind. Dj sets are better than single trance tracks as it gives each track a unique feeling and atmosphere.
100% true, I'm not favoring progressive in any way and if you find pretty much any "big" progressive dj, they play the same tracks every single one of them. But I fear that would happen too, if you only stick to uplifting trance.The current bias here is towards progressive. And I mean heavily towards progressive. Whatever it is that progressive really means. It seems to be music with not much melody and little energy There are many days when uplifting trance barely gets a look in anymore. As far as tunes being over played you can now look in the tracklists for progressive sets and find the same tunes being played all the time. With a little bit of imagination this can be avoided.
The big labels like, Armada, which got like a million sub-labels, only concentrate on 4-5 artists or something like that. If Beat Service comes with a new track, they'll sign it without even listening to it. The true, original EDM labels are mostly the ones which are being ignored by big dj's like Solaris and Silk Royal, the more progressive labels, and Arisa Audio and Silent Shore Records, the more uplifting, just to name a few. Today DJ's like AvB, A&B and so on only play tracks from their own labels...There is plenty of new trance coming out all the time. Plus there are many fine old tunes that are still worth a play, and i'm not talking about the obvious classics because most of those were done to death years ago, lol. You, your self, Kata, made a fine set of older stuff as I recall in the producer corner And its not all about big labels. You have to look further than that if your going to be original which most djs that play on here are not.
True, we need a lot more unique and original dj's like Orkidea imo as I mentioned before.There was a time when promoters wouldn't look at you unless you were doing something original that made you stand out from the crowd. But the internet has changed all that and now anything goes because there's nobody to tell you any different. That means there's nobody pushing you to try a little harder to make the grade. So now its a case of, Oh if he's playing it, well so will I So most djs today are simply clones of others who had more exposure. They dont look to originality because their peers are not being original.
I can see where you are getting at. At first this was a pure trance channel, but you can't really say to the djs what to play. If they wan't to play progressive tracks because of your image and because that's what you like, then you should.As for playing other edm genres here other than trance, and, um, progressive, well isn't this place supposed to be just for trance and erm, progressive? Or maybe it doesnt really matter anymore. We get techno played on here. At one time that was supposed to be out lawed here. But not anymore, lol.
As for DJs ruining the Trance scene, i agree, AvB, A&B and their troop only play boring progressive with fart sounds and random 'melodies'.
But, not only progressive is ruined, for me Daniel Kandi already ruined the Uplifting Trance scene with his tracks that sounds the same thing over & over & over.... It's 'easy' to listen to this kind of trance. So, guess what what happened? Producers are now making tunes like Daniel Kandi does and uplifting trance is now boring as hell.
That's my opinion.
I agree, but not all the artists do that. you really have to look for the good ones, that's the hard work today! constantly looking for new and upcoming uplifting talents that are not yet ruined by the vision of becoming famous
