Talk:Dream trance

I don't think this genre of trance or house is valid. There are few reliable sources to support its definition. Simple piano melodies and simple drum patterns doesn't distinguish a music style. There has be a sustained scene or culture which has developed around it. For example, with electronic music there is often record labels, djs, events, venues and artists which support it. I don't know of any online music outlets with dream house or dream trance as a category or style of music. There are too many redlinks in the list of artists which means they aren't notable. The fact that it can be classed as house or trance testifies to its ambiguity. This article needs references which define the style and expand the history to ensure that notability is established. - Shiftchange (talk) 16:19, 23 April 2013 (UTC)

So the hundreds of, albeit repetitive, "Dream Trance" compilations that were released throughout the 90's and 2000's are what? JanderVK (talk) 22:27, 5 February 2015 (UTC)
Marketing gimmicks. - Shiftchange (talk) 00:19, 6 February 2015 (UTC)
Dream trance music, in common with many other sub-genres of music, does not, of course, have a precise definition. Having said that, I think that the definition given in the article, is as accurate as it could possibly be. Personally, when I listen to dream trance, I pick it up as a distinct sub-genre quite easily. Joe Gatt (talk) 20:14, 6 February 2015 (UTC)
"Gothic Rock" & "Djent" were "marketing gimmicks" made up by record labels and radio. They're not established genres/sub. It's a distinct sub-genre of trance as much as Goa is. JanderVK (talk) 18:23, 9 February 2015 (UTC)
I guess that it is a subjective matter, after all, but I am sure that a lot of music lovers pick up Dream Trance as a distinct sound. The same likewise applies to Gothic Rock. (About Djent I cannot speak since I am not familiar with the term.) Joe Gatt (talk) 19:55, 12 February 2015 (UTC)
Sorry, that was a typo. I meant to say that they are NOW a distinct genre. JanderVK (talk) 19:08, 13 February 2015 (UTC)
I am glad that we are agreed then! Joe Gatt (talk) 23:22, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

Can't stay[edit]

The list of tracks doesn't belong. We aren't a directory or music guide. Take it to We want prose, sources to support the claim and less redlinks. - Shiftchange (talk) 13:19, 22 November 2016 (UTC)

Come on, it's quite usual for Wikipedia articles about specific music genres, to include a list of examples of songs that belong to that genre. Joe Gatt (talk) 09:29, 23 November 2016 (UTC)
Do we have a music genre article that has been assessed as being good or better that has a list of example songs? If so I would like to see it. What we usually have, for more developed genre articles, is prose mentioning why a particular track is significant to the genre and a few samples. If we followed your logic then every article about things would have a list of examples. That isn't how we do things here. We use categories and "List of" articles for that. Regardless of those points, the list could be removed because it lacks sources. - Shiftchange (talk) 00:23, 24 November 2016 (UTC)
For instance Progressive House does have a list of notable examples. If it really has to go, instead of deleting the list outright (it is really a good list of exemplars --- I hate to see it go), I suggest that we either insert a tag there requesting reference sources, or else we could move the list outside of this article, and put it under categories or "List of" article as you have mentioned above.
