German DJs first showed signs of elements that would later be fundamental to trance music as early as the late 80s when they were experimenting with electronic and psychedelic sounds. The influence of Detroit techno in these years was incorporated into the sound, combining the techno foundation with mind-altering sound. Following the fall of the Berlin Wall the city’s underground club scene exploded and trance music became very popular. The record label Masterminded For Success (MFS) released one of the original trance compilations, Tranceformed From Beyond in 1992. Paul Van Dyk and Sven Väth helped massively popularise the genre with Van Dyk’s For An Angel and his remix of Love Stimulation becoming highly successful.
