age limit?..hell nah! I don't think I'll every quit listening to psytrance!!! though i get bitched at constantly for not listening to that rapcrap on the radio...pff.

Judging from my experience, the parties that I have been to in the past (psytrance parties) generally consist of people ranging from their early 20s to late 60+. If you'v ever heard of Goa Gil, ud probably know that hes well into his 60s and is the one of the driving forces behind the creation of Goa/Psytrance.

Also, if you listen to Shpongle, you probably know that 1/2 of Shpongle is Raja Ram who is also in his 50s.

On occasions Iv been to small parties where theres more older people (30+) than younger ones...and most times they are the ones who you will see on the dance floor the WHOLE NIGHT and well into the day!

I suggest you go and check out a psytrance festival sometime and u'll see what I mean!

At the parties in Goa there was every age, size, shape and color your can imagine (as it should be!). Something for everyone.

I saw guys in their 60s jumping around and wiggin' out to trance. Right on! I guess even old dudes can still dig it.

Trance means so much to me -- I think it would kill me to give it up -- its like a vital part of my health! I have been clubbing since I was 17. Now I am 31 and I still go out. I dont get to go out as often because I have more responsibilities now and other things I want to do. When I go out here in Houston I am definetly not the oldest person in the club. There isnt an age limit on trance!

10 months is enough (a friend's son, always grins and waves his little arms when his dad spins at home )

I'm 30.5 and the EDM - addicted part of my life started about 16 years ago... and there's no end to see for the next years

And it's always interesting to see that there are always some older people in the clubs, having a great time. Mostly those are the ones who still keep the real old spirit alive. As maz posted before: PLUR

so keep it up as long as you like it

If I ever have a kid (with the love of my life who also loves trance!), we will blast trance for the baby to hear and feel. So when s/he is born and growing up...the bpm of trance will not only feel right and desired, but also loved and addicted

would that work?


But yeah mentioned before, Raja Ram is one the of the best psy DJs out there and he's 63! So you're never too old, as long as you stay true to this music!

A veritable youngster eh

I'm 56, yes fifty six.

Two months ago if someone had spoken to me about trance
I'd have thought they were talking about hypnotism

I downloaded Winamp and found by chance Shoutcast
then Digitally Imported.

Clicked on the vocal trance button DJ GT's Voices Of Spring 2003
was playing thought AWESOME been hooked ever since.

I think Doboy is great , bought some of his mixes.

I started of with Elvis Presley, Beatles, Val Doonican, Perry Como,
Abba, Pink Floyd (Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here)
Mike Oldfield (Tubular Bells made Richard Branson a millionaire),
Fleetwood Mac, Vangelis (Albedo 0.39), Jean Michel Jarre (Oxygene),
Bonny Tyler and many more.

Then I started a classical phase about 10 years ago finally ending with trance.

Who knows how your tastes will change only time will tell.

Can't see me clubbin' though

I don't think I'll ever stop listening to trance.

It's like asking someone in their sixties if they'll ever stop listening to jazz music, or the Beatles, or Roy Orbison. Stuff like that never leaves you.

When I was at a club a few weeks ago there was a group of guys there who must have at least been in their late fifties, and they were on the floor all night. They were having a ball dancing to all the stuff that's in the charts right now, and they seemed to get a lot of respect from the crowd all around them.

What's funny is that these guys were really enjoying themselves, and yet most of the young people in the crowd looked as miserable as sin - which was probably just cos they hadn't pulled all night.

there already is: psytrance!

seriously tho, right now i say that i won't ever stop listening to psytrance but thats the same thing i said a couple of years ago when i used to listen to rap & hip-hop. unless something better than psy comes out in the future, i'll probably still be listening to it.

actually, i'll probably just start listening to a lot more chill-out/psy-ambient that I do right now.

I'm 16 and trance has been beating in my heart since I was 10 years old, and I don't think the rythem has ever left my head or my hands. hehehe. btw, what are some good vocal trance songs/dj's to look into? I've always loved listening to it.

i disagree entirely! in fact, i think that if i could only listen to ONE musical artist for the rest of my life, it'd be Pink Floyd. but... to each their own. i am not bashing your opinion, heh... just stating mine!

i just love Pink Floyd so much. now THAT is original trance music. omfg, listening to the live version of Comfortably Numb can put me in a trance like no other.

Music will keep evolving (unless the taliban has its way). Trance music established a new plateau. I hope this is not the end of the line, I hope there will be cooler and more psychedelic music still to come.
It depends on the individual some people listen to the same
artist such as Elvis all there lives where as others move on.

I recently dug out the Pink Floyd album "Wish You Were Here"
played it and wondered why I used to think it was so awesome.

In some ways it's best not to go back in time, the world has
changed and so have I.

OK this WILL sound weird. I was talkign to someone earlier this very day about this same exact subject. I told them i think i will always listen to trance. I compared it to my love of jimmy buffet (go ahead laugh) Just jimmy buffet always reminds me of the good days when i did not have to worry about anything (now i have to worrybout work and school and my future) but i remember my english professor askign me jimmy buffet? why jimmy buffet? (he was shocked he thought even hE was to young ot listen to jimmy buffet) liek it was some kind of era where no one cept the people a certain Age could listen to him. This is exactly like trance and techno and anythign really. You will always like the kind of music you grew up with and loved. Just like I am starting to seriously get into spinning if not for clubs and other people just for my own enjoyment. And i feel i will be doign it for as logn as my hands can move HEHE . I think in the far future it will be a relief from work like i will get so bored programmign at work i will come home and start spinnign til all hours of the night then goto sleep wake up and goto work again. I say far future because right now i can not spin very much for one I do not have any real equipment (which i am fixing to change really soon here, not enough funding and I am goign to loose my job around end of november until summer time rolls on through again) So i Want to get some decent stuff to last me until the summer.. (okay that was off topic a bit)...




YOU CAN LISTEN TO WHATEVER you want no matter what age (sure sOME people may think it's weird but fuBuck them... You like it, you listen to it... no age limit whatsoever

If there has to be an age limit then it be 0< till death,

But why should it matter what you are listening to and how old you are. i am 17, and i am loving Trance, and i hope i will be listening to the day i die.

Your never to old for any kind of music. I am almost 30 and I still love Trance. As we get older what kind of music should we be listening to?
