Do you like pretty music? Then the first half of this episode is for you.
The second half, not so much.
Anyone who knows me well knows that I like contrast when it comes to art. Whether it's a raw bassline underpinning something melodic, or something small next to something large, contrast - at the risk of becoming philosophical - is what allows us to know the true nature of something.
In this case, that's trance.
