Trance groove

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Trance Groove is a German band that was founded in 1992 by the drummer and percussionist Stefan Krachten . The music of Trance Groove combines loops with improvisations and uses elements from rock, groove, funk, jazz and electronic music. The result is a broad repertoire that ranges from melodic ballads to rock music . Most of the band's tracks are instrumental, sometimes with scraps of vocals, which are used more as instruments than vocals. A few pieces also contain “normal” vocal passages.
