There in lies my entire point. Who gives a flip what it's called, the music would still be constructed the same way beats, melodies, drops, and all other quintessential musical attributes whether it was called Hypno-tech-step or Trance.

Why does it get a negative assocaition based solely upon the musical content where as people don't knock on Junglists for having dread locks and wearing camouflage all the time? It just seems like trance is the scapegoat of the entire EDM music community.
