Hard Trance

Hard trance is the natural progression of trance music merging gabber, techno and trance, and originated in Europe, mainly Belgium, Germany and Holland in the mid 1990s.

Hard trance is synonymous with hard and strong kicks with resonant bass ala gabber and usual trance synth riffs to give it the signature trance sound.  Melody is around 130-150 and is mainly instrumental as vocalisation of the songs gives it a more uplifting warmer sound.  It has since evolved and is now mainly a dead genre form, overtaken by genres such as Hardstyle and Jumpstyle.

Hard trance saw a lot of commercial success in the late 1990s with productions from the likes of Cosmic Gate and Technikal achieving commercial success with Hard trance.
