TranceAddict.com – The great-grand-everything of all EDM community sites. In its heyday, this was one of the most technologically advanced websites on the planet, and was the source for everything EDM. Unfortunately, it seems to be losing out to other forums in recent times (or is it that there are just too many now?). The colour scheme hasn’t changed since the last century, but the Forum Archives are a collection of gems.
Trance.nu came out of nowhere to become a favourite hangout of trance addicts (pun intended). They offered many firsts (like a searchable lyrics database) and have been continuously adapting to changing times and changing audience tastes. In fact, they are in their 4th incarnation right now, and still going strong. Love their tagline: “Our nights are brighter than your days”.
Hybridized.org is a prime example of the way the EDM community generously embraces emerging trends in technology and online communities. Thousands of livesets are available for download for free, with the full support of the recording artists/producers/DJs.
