OK, I think I know what may be going on. Do you know if your files are properly tagged? Winamp uses the music file's metadata for the information.

I-Tunes has its own tagging/file-ID service. Which allows the automatic playback by genre. However, Winamp lost its tagging/file-ID service after AOL sold Winamp to Radionomy. So, unless you files have been tagged, I am not sure of what else to tell you.

Anyone else with suggestion or ideas?

Another possibility (if the files are tagged) is the Genre tags have an alternative word for Trance. For genres that can have alternative words I create additional "formals" with the alternative word/tag. The following is a Smart View example for video game music...

Note how the extra operatives are 'OR' instead of 'AND'. However the first operative still stays as 'AND'.
