Beatport Trance and Psy-Trance audio examples

As you probably know, I now work as a music curator at Beatport and am responsible for three trance genres: Psy-Trance, Trance (Main Floor) and the recently added Trance (Raw / Deep / Hypnotic).

Since arguing about genres can be endless, I’ve created audio example playlists of how I define them. This comes in handy when working with colleagues, distributors, artists and labels, but can also be interesting for general listening and broadening your perspective.

I’ve collected links to such playlists for each sub-genre below. I wonder if there’s anything you think doesn’t fit the classifications? Is there anything you’ve discovered that is new to you? What is your favourite genre or subgenre?

Personally, I’m amazed once again at how diverse trance music is (and it’s just crazy that before I joined the company all these subgenres didn’t exist and everything was mixed in one pile).
