The concept of trance has a long and complicated history. Originally "a dazed, half-conscious or insensible condition or state of fear," the meaning has evolved to include many unusual or altered states of consciousness associated with hypnosis, meditation, magic, prayer, addictions, and ecstasy.
Trance states are characterized by repetition, so music is a prime instigator in both ethnic and social cultures, including high-energy styles of electronic dance music.
On this transmission of Hearts of Space, we ride hypnotic beats into strange realms and magical summer nights, on a program called TRANCEWORLD.
Music is by GREEN ISAC, KOUAME SEREBA & ERIK WOLLO, DREAM JUNGLE, ROBERT RICH, LOREN NERELL, LARAAJI, MAX CORBACHO & BRUNO SANFILIPPO.
