What? Ambient trance and rave.. surely that'll never work!? Well, I think I've managed it. Veeeery long trancey intro (chill out and enjoy) followed by a techno / rave melody to get your juices flowing.

Hope you enjoy, 'tis one of my faves. Play it loud.

Very very very awesome

A lot of detailed, advanced stuff going on here. Great drum lines, them hats really do their job. A bit too much repetitiveness with certain synths, cause you repeat melodies from earlier parts when that isn't really called for at all. Except for that this tune is goddamn flawless. Especially loved the beginning and the ethnic percussion stuff there. Vewy vewy well done. Doesn't really move on until it comes to the faster "rave"-ish part. But it does when it's in that part, and stuff is lovable the whole way through.

You get my yay

Yay at getting your yay!

Very relaxing

Definitly an original song. Nice flow and progression. It never gets repetitive (unlike a lot of stuff posted in the trance genre). I read your post in the audio forum, and would like to offer a suggestion - when submitting a track, picking the right genre is important, if you want the right people to listen to you music. I would consider this more of a IDM, or Ambient piece, than a trance piece. Trance music has 4/4 percussion, usualy with some form of kick (which this piece lacks). This is an awesome track, just in the wrong place.

Keep up the good work - Shenkhar

Thanks Shenkhar!

I've updated the genre so appreciate the tips. Identifying a genre was never my strong point. Most of my stuff isn't "pure" trance but I label it as such anyway.
