You're right, I know nothing about trance. I can't stand anything that sounds like it belong to that genre, so I haven't really taken the time to learn the differences. Are Above And Beyond not trance?
Airwave is a good example of somebody that still makes trance. This is a recent release from soundcloud. Above & Beyond are definitely kind of more progressive house than trance anymore. Or what some people like to call trouse.
Either this is a joke or Boise is even worse of a place than I imagined it could be.
Fuck off Boise is great. Boise Music Fest, up until this year, has always been free and a great way spending a drunken day seeing some of the worst bands imaginable. Nobody in the city takes it seriously as a musical endeavour. They have Treefort for that.
