    It's called "Take Your Trance Off."  :p :D

    Took me about 2.5 months to complete.

    If you get an urge to dance then don't fight it!

    This sounds more like House/Techno my dude, Trance usually runs at 140 BPM and has a running bass instead of that phat meaty moog. If you use FL Studio and used a lot of the VSX 303 synths, then they were done quite well. The only issues I see with it, is that I don't think or feel like certain things were sidechained, and around the 1 minute mark the chord leads sounds a little jarring in the mix. Perhaps compress it and see if you can fit it in the High/Med frequencies so it mixes better? Other than that, sounds good.

    Hi Le Grumpire, trance is a very loosely defined genre of music that is quite open to interpretation.  At it's core, trance is just music that has a kick on each beat (also known as four-on-the-floor), a snare on every other beat, and a hihat on the off beat.  You build up and down other sounds around this core idea.

     

    Wikipedia says this about trance music: "Trance music is characterized by a tempo lying between 110–150 bpm (BPM),[6] repeating melodic phrases[6] and a musical form that distinctly builds tension and elements throughout a track often culminating in 1 to 2 "peaks" or "drops".[6] Although trance is a genre of its own, it liberally incorporates influences from other musical styles such as techno,[4][2]house,[1][2]pop,[4]chill-out,[4]classical music,[4][5]tech house, ambient and film music."

    Regarding your other comments, I sidechained when needed.  Perhaps you're used to other tracks where the producers sidechain heavily and make it super obvious?   I sometimes don't like to do that.  Just depends on the track.
