genre [noun] – a style, especially in the arts, that involves a particular set of characteristics
e.g. what genre does this mix fall into?

Well, according to Beatport et al, the tracks listed below are either melodic techno, or progressive house. For me, I think they’re progressive trance – but what do I know? Well, I know I went in search of tracks that reminded me of the progressive trance sound from around the turn of the century. I wanted tracks that reminded me of music releases on the likes of Bedrock, Hooj, Fluid, Sumsonic, INCTraxx to name but a few. I wanted percussive, driving, hypnotic.

Other than having to spend an absolute age (not a bad way to spend time online really) crossing through arbitrary genres, I think I got it too.

If you’re a fan of that sound, you can leave a comment on the mixcloud page after you’ve had a listen and let me know what you think. You can grab the download here too.
