It's starting again! Clubs are partying again, the world's first museum for electronic music has opened in Frankfurt and the sound of trance is experiencing an absurd revival. The book on the sound of the early nineties is called like the sound itself: TRANCE. A non-fiction/essay hybrid that deals with school rampages, friendship and the renunciation of drugs as well as the youthful longing for something missed: in this case the trance and dance scene in Frankfurt am Main. A shrill, angry and yet good-humoured techno text, dedicated not only to the historical development of techno and trance worldwide, but also to growing up in the suburbs and dancing for hours on end until complete exhaustion. A long overdue book that helps take thinking about electronic music to a new level.
