Morpheus on… Trance Music

I have always maintained that Trance uses the same basic rules for its construction as Charleston. And now I have proof.

Whilst going through my collection of Art Deco (late ’20s-early ’30s) record sleeves, I came across one, upon which was printed the following – “There is a fascination about well-played modern dance music. The melody is there, and an unfailing rhythm, but around them is woven a texture of quaint effects, so numerous and unexpected as to give one great respect for the clever people who think them all out.”

And on the reverse was a list of tips – for the care and maintenance of your WIND-UP GRAMOPHONE! I rest my case.
