I too listen to European Trance. I think, too, it's rare that you would come across someone that is familiar with that genre.
Sadly, in the States, electronic dance music is not represented as much as it is in Europe - especially trance. At some point it was huge (if you lived in a city), but that's only when a particular hit track has gotten major airplay: example Darude's "Sandstorm" and the ever-so popular Derilium's "Silence" (featuring Sarah McLachlan) with remixes by Tiesto and Airscape. Remember that?
I can go on and on, but I won't.
I'm just another music junkie (and a New Order listener).
I'll just liste some DJ/Artists down incase anyone comes across one of these and also start up another reply:
Paul van Dyk
BT - this guy's a genuis. Haha!
Ferry Corsten - give or take
Gabriel & Dresden - mainly known for remixes (also give or take)
Cuts, baby. Cuts.
