Vocal trance

Back | Home | Up


Vocal trance is a subgenre of trance music, and contains highly melodic sessions, intro/outros which are similar to those of hard trance and tracks of usually about 6 to 8 minutes long.

A typical track consists of three elements. At the beginning of the track there is an intro of progressive beats, which lasts about 1-3 minutes. The melodic part (2-5min) starts incrementally, combining vocals, usually female, and melodic sound (for the most part high pitched and fast) with the bass pattern to give a great melody cycle. Finally when the outro is approaching, the melody fades out and we get the same rhythm as the intro, usually with some minor changes.

The most important defining element of vocal trance is the vocals (as implied by the name). Most of the time the vocals are high pitched, usually from a female vocalist, and is intended to create a chilling sound. in some tracks there are male vocals, but are usually confined to speaking and responding to the female vocals. it is not uncommon for vocals to repeat themselves many times, to be constant with the "loop" idea present in most techno music.

Vocal trance is popular listening in Europe, notably Germany, Sweden and Great Britain. It is closely related to uplifting trance.
