Balearic Trance, also known as Ibiza Trance, is an electronic dance music genre which has evolved from Balearic Beat. The earliest Ibiza Trance compositions date back to the 90s, a few years after the emergence of Balearic Beat. It keeps the same "Balearic" flavor like Balearic Beat, although it is characterized by a higher rate of heavy pulses in the range of 125-145 bpm, usually around 130 bpm. Being based in Spain, it usually expresses a Latin feel and a relaxing atmosphere, which makes this genre similar in many regards to Dream Trance. Notable artists include Chicane, Energy 52, Humate, and others.
Although inconsistently, the style name always were connected to the fusion between Trance and Balearic beat until now. In the summer of 2012 producers like Dj Joe Sonic, Dj Andrei, Dj Benji and others, came to life a new meaning to Balearic Trance.
