emm guys dont u think that age has something to do with it?? like the older ppl become, the more they are attracted by house/club geners and even they flip to hishtick bishtik :p or to smoothing lounge :hippy2: . because (imo) they get to attend more and more into clubs/pubs and less into huge gigs and gatherings and vice versa ;)

and ofcourse when they reach their 40s they flip to electro :P :mrgreen:

50-60s old fayrouz oum calthoum 3abba 7aleem and those old tracks :p

...etc :mrgreen:

HEAVY METAL RULESSS :headbang: !!!!!! :crazy:

Enough with this exagerated House invasion, it's time for some diversity, because diversity alone is what builds an educated crowd. If there weren't any talented Trance DJs on Lebanese soil,


don't forget that house is evolving more than trance in lebanon,and in the hole world,As for minimal and electro.....Trance was from 98 till now,the problem my friend Dyonisos is that LEBANON,and LEbanese are now exploring and learning about TRANCE and else when it should be done years ago,when the world had explored learned,and enjoyed hearing and spinin it 6 or 7 years back
the problem is that few of us know a lot about edm from a long time,when all began in the years of oldschool and freestyle....now in all europe and the world,electro and house is taking place.

NB:i'm a trance listener since 97-98 and i will still adore it,but sometimes u have to listen to other beautiful beats,and genre...finally this is music,all is related to each other,u prefer a genre more than a genre,but u cant say i this is not good....
and in lebanon unfortunately we don't have a mega club to support trance clubbers or music,once Hectik opened 5 years ago(i worked in it as pr manager)the place worled for the opening and 3 weeks after,it closed...
lebanese needs a more to understand music....cheerz

^Agreed all the way. Trance is FAR FAR FAR from dead, but a lot of new sounds are being explored all over the world. A big indication of future music is to hear what is being played in the hotspot events of the year: WMC Miami, summer in Ibiza/London, San Fran/Berlin Love Parades. If you check out many livesets from these events, you will notice that techy, electro and minimal sounds have invaded ALL genres (PVD/Armin/Ferry have played electro and techno in their livesets for MONTHS now). This is already causing diversity in the scene and I for one am all for it.
As for clubs in Lebanon: the bottom line is as much as we all want to preach about quality clubs and quality nights, clubs and club promotion is a BUSINESS and businesses have to make money to survive. A club cannot stay open being supported by music lovers only, it has to include also the commercial "clubbers" who are there for drinks and to look beautiful--this is a FACT! Unfortunately, those pretty people have a much easier time opening champagne to 127-128bpms than they do to 135bpms. A true solution would be to have a club with a dedicated once or twice a month night for various genres, where quality can be shown on certain nights, and commercialism and money-making on other nights. I'd invest! :D

REVIVE !


No, I can't stress enough on this topic, and the message it conveys.

This issue is still haunting my thoughts, and no significant changes have occured ever since this thread was first created, nor since it was revived a while back.

I just spent the last half hour re-reading all the replies on this topic. A lot of insightful and educated contributions have been made by a number of quality members, some of which whose high-calibre activity on the forum is dearly missed.
I don't expect you to do the same and read the entire thread, but at least re-read the initial post made by myself, and the replies that you yourselves have made in the past, and I'll be looking forward to seeing what your present thoughts are on the issue. The new members can also read the initial post on page1 to know what this is all about, then share their thoughts with the rest of us.

I agree with SamEr. And you can't really blame it on the political instability nowadays, because new clubs are still opening every week, all of which targeting the same clientel of all the other clubs! It really gets depressing at the end of the day. It's just sad and irritating to see that after 3 years of launching TH with the aim of building the Lebanese community of Trance listeners and educating the crowd, Lebanon's most known Trance DJ - Amadeus - still has no residency, and is getting more gigs abroad than on domestic soil, while the rising local Trance DJs are getting almost no form of exposure whatsoever! And then what?!

^ Lebanon is not the real target of Trance music imo..
Most of people here listen to Arabic, R'N'B, Hip-Hop, and House (only some)..
and what is more and more being liked nowdays is CARLOS, the one and only ONE MAN SHOW..haha!

^ I THough someone would open the Carlos issue... this guy has become a Phen. that everyone is trying to witness with their bare eyes.. he releases a cd everyweek with some of his show tracks!

Imo there should be more of trance nightclubs in lebanon, specificly Trance because BO and Basment Play house, lebanon needs a trance dedicated club...but as Raneem said lebanese crowd is interested in RNB and Arabic stuff!

^ And this is what makes me sad. Although i'm really happy to have found other educated trancers than me the last 2 years, i still see that there's a lot to do in Lebanon in order to make the trance scene bigger and stronger. Sometimes i get the impression that Lebanon was too much influenced by french culture :roll: (that's just a feeling! no facts here :) ) which is focused on house music... makes France look almost like an intruder in Europe :lol:

..Another issue: Music VS Architecture
Most of Beirut clubs are DARK inner-city underground venues.. Playing BRIGHT music there just wouldn’t sound right.. It will destroy the whole concept of the place and the total meaning of the music. That’s mostly why Tech music suits clubs better than Bright Uplifting.
Ever thought how lame BO18 would turn without Dark prog?
That’s one of the reasons y I’ve been backing up Dyo to play his distinctive dark side of trance, I guess this would give him more openings for a residency.

The only place in Beirut I can Imagine favorable to be transformed into a Trance Venue is Rooftop.. The view on Beirut is dreamy!
other than this one I would see a Trance venue as a glass box outside Beirut with a view on a illuminated forest/garden, beach or mountain.
