my dad likes a lot of music style and trance is one of them. he only plays it when in the right mood. he sorta helped me get into it. like he'd play his tapes he record off the latenight radio that specialized in it, i thought it was pretty cool till one day i searched it up and it started from there.

You should listen to music which make you feel good and give a shit about what people around you think about your music. There is no age limit to listening to Trance. Damn, my father who is 36 years old is singing and clapping with Vengaboys when my sister play her CD in his car.

What's wrong with you people? I think it's very cool when "older" people are adopting new music. Can't stand those who listen to "oldies" and jazz all day long and can't stand this cold "techno" (as they call it).

Which is kind of ironic since I hope that I will listen to what I listen now forever and I suspect future generations will criticize me in the same way. A perfect case scenario is when both adopt new things and don't forget old ones.

that's when the elbows come out in full force.

I would never stop listening to the music I love just because of my age. So I would say no, there's not a limit.

Damn, I ENVY you older people! You've been into EDM from the start. You were there in the 80's when house emerged, there when the rave scene exploded, there when when dancing all night to pounding beats was fresh and novel, and not the cliched standard that it is today. You were there for glowsticks, phat pants, and ecstasy, before those became ridiculed stereotypes. Sigh. I would have LOVED to lived through that. I'm 18, and since I just got into EDM a couple years ago, I feel like such a n00b/poser, even though I love the music more than life itself. People assume that since I'm a young partier, I must be into the scene for drugs/clothes/ego. Also, it would have been awesome to actually witness the music evolve over the years, hearing it get harder, weirder, more complex.

Heh, I feel like a salty old cur already, looking fondly back on the years I wasn't around for

Ain't no limit, really.

But I really have respect for the older people -- the veterans.

There was one guy at my workplace who's been listening to EDM since the early 90's and used to go to raves since that time.

Now he's a truck driver and he listens to western swing or whatever he called it.

"Man I can't keep up with that electronica stuff anymore!"

Haha.l

What music I should be listening to, I'm not too sure!

Ok so I don't go clubbing as much as I used to but I don't feel _that_ old.

So I guess my question is - is there an age limit to listening to Trance and along the way, what's the oldest DI listener who will admit to their age (rounded down of course)?
Isn't trance the only music out there that actually takes you on a mental and emotional trip???? Then why would you want to attach an age to it??? You can't teach the ignorant my friend, let them be...........

Besides, when I hit 60 I'm going to be dropping some serious shit and rave my ass off everyday............

Any genre of music can take you on a mental and emotional trip. But like many, I think trance is the best gateway to do so

But yeah, you tell 'em!

Too Right, i was listening to trance and house in the early 90's while at school while everyone else was into the britpop and got lots of gip for it, wish i had been old enough to enjoy it in the clubs!

I'm 38 and discovered psy last year. I son't think there's an age limit. One friend I know just had his 50th and he still comes to all the doofs. Its nice to know there are people out htere not acting their age.
