Ibiza Trance

Learn Ibiza Trance Music Producing with the Recording Connection

Ibiza trance (also referred to as Balearic trance) is a form of electronic dance music that derives both its name and its style from the Balearic Islands of Spain, and from the resort island of Ibiza in particular. It’s essentially an evolution of the Balearic beat which emerged in the mid-1980s, only with a faster, more pulsating house rhythm. While its predecessor offers a more downtempo, relaxed dance rhythm (under 125 bpm), Ibiza trance generally stays between 125-140 BPM while retaining its relaxed Latin style. Thus, Ibiza trance is a unique blend of house trance and Latin flavor, leaning heavily on drum machines, synths and samplers for its undercurrents while drawing on Spanish guitars, mandolins and other Mediterranean instruments for musical flavor.
