For me the greatest power of music lies in its ability to create a deep emotional attachment. It is remarkable how music can bring back memories about people and places in a powerful way. There is something about music that goes beyond boundaries and barriers, beyond culture, race and religion.
Being born and brought up in western India & having been working in the US for the last few years, there have been multiple formative music experiences at different stages of my life. However, the most recent & powerful one has been my introduction to Trance. It was last year in Seattle when my cousin introduced me to the incredibly deep music of Armin Van Buuren. It is amazing how an introduction to a new genre of music can open up a whole new world for you. Since last year, I’ve discovered some awesome tracks produced by Paul Van Dyk, DJ Tiesto, Benny Benassi, Markus Schulz, Paul Oakenfold, etc. I think most captivating quality of Trance music is to create those occasional Adrenaline surges.Trance songs typically have a mid-song break in which the rhythm tracks are faded out, leaving the melody to stand alone for a few minutes and then bringing back the rhythm at a potentially faster tempo to create that rush of blood. There a only a few of genres of music that really keep me going and Trance is right at the top.
