Basic alphabetizing only works so well.

For these and other valid use cases...
In your collection, you can group them how you like. Im not debating the point of doing that kind of thing - Im talking about people in general being classed as "this" or "that", in the wider world

Yes, the same applies to finding something you’re looking for whether that be music or food or whatever else.

Have you ever been to a library? It’s amazing, they came up with a way to sort things into similar areas so that it’s easy to find a book you want instead of just randomly selecting one from the shelves.

Exactly this. Why isnt everyone ranting against classifying the written word? Surely that must be an act of oppression against the creative spirit of humankind

Oh yeah, perfect timing with this thread.

Seriously need help slutz, I mean... spacers?

So I like to think that I make techno, but the techno "community" never really gave me any real love, apart from a few legends who I won't name drop.

Even at my second last live PA show, a punter, who was supposedly a techno head, asked me what I'd call the music? ok...

Is it just house?

Example #1

Example #2

Chill out?


Beach house?
In the '90s, some people might even have classed that with trip-hop and downtempo psychedelia. There's definitely a certain mood/psychedelic element.

Always wondered though.....



Without wanting to sound snooty, it does sound like people are less and less familiar with the founding genres of the 70's, 80's and '90s. There are definitely elements of fusion, funk, house, and ambient / chillout all in your music there, too.

Cheers, that's exactly what I thought! Maybe what trips them up are the "b side" tracks...

I mean, what the hell do you call this?

Glitch/industrial techno ? Probably not quite as accurate as my post above, as I don't know the style quite as well. Again it definitely partly reminds me of '90s glitch and techno and 80's industrial though, added with modern electronica.

Agreed big fan of trip hop - but I guess those days are long gone

It lives ! ;.) In quite a lot of places, but I think people are calling it something different.

I call that sort of stuff 4WD or 4x4, but then again I came up with that nickname by myself. I know in the UK they also have some genre designation called 4WD, but I'm not sure if that means the same thing as mine. My "4WD" nickname comes from the phrase "Four Wheel Drive Techno (Neliveto)".

I had a conversation with DJ Pete about this thing some years back, I told him "its the future of techno!" He plays a lot of tracks with this sound, and he said there's a name for that sound in Berlin.. but said he forgot what it was at the time

James Ruskin has a lot of tracks with the style I'm talking about.
