Above & Beyond’s Jono Grant has some opinions how BPM relates to Trance. Specifically, regarding the obsession that 138BPM is the be all, end all for Trance. Grant took to Twitter to set the record straight.
He went on to clarify his point about the importance of BPM, but how it isn’t always the most important factor:
Well, Jono Grant has a point. Most people cannot even hear the difference between a BPM of 137 and 138 or 138 and 139. Furthermore, the subtleties of BPM can truly go unnoticed by the average listeners ear. So many additional factors come into play such as texture, groove, beat, harmony, and melody.
Ultimately, it is always interesting to hear artists speak out. Social media is a great outlet for expression, and allows fans and artists alike to make their opinions known.
