From what I found on youtube that guy's music sounds pretty similar as Trance already sounded when I was at the loveparade (or other techno parties) during the nineties.
Well, indeed not "hardcore" or "heavy" trance in any way, and yes it's a reflection of the "nineties" in a way. And that is perfectly in within my personal scope!
This spring, Armin van Buuren celebrated 550 online broadcasts of his "A State of Trance", and made a world wide tour out of it. There were big performances in several cities; London (UK), Moscow (RU), Kiev (UA), Los Angeles (USA), Miami (USA), and Den Bosch (NL). Beside Armin himself, there were *many* great music producing DJ's invited to play at all these events, see the list here:
I listened through most of it, and this was my favorite: Armin van Buuren, Day 2, Moscow:

I kind of liked that! Quote:
For what's currently going on on the electronic and experimental side I suggest the releases by Kompakt (Cologne based label), most of the stuff they release is rather good. But it's not exactly Trance, rather modern Krautrock/Ambient.
Some typical examples:
Thanks for your suggestions!
That first link was in both audio and video quite cool. It kind of reminded me of computer "demos" back in the days. Very cool that way!
Ambient isn't really my cup of tea though, and doesn't really represent "evolution" of the electronic music genre for me (like you suggested I think), rather kind of a fork. Quote:
Anyway, taste differs.
That's what makes the world so beautiful!
Anyway, it's not like that I don't appreciate some "metal". I love all old-school Iron Maiden stuff, and all the other classic bands. I also listen to Rammstein (although I don't like all the political lyrics, but that's easy enough for me to ignore, since I don't understand German that much (only a little)) [ Edited by takemehomegrandma 05.09.2012 - 01:53 ]
