    Default "Business Techno"

    I stumbled across the term the other night and apparently it's stuck.

    What the hell is Business Techno?

    ... depending on where you stand on the pressing political issue of DJ fees and the age-old battle between the mainstream and the underground, referring to an artist or their output as Business Techno is either an insult implying they make or play unimaginative sell-out music, or simply an acknowledgement that techno DJs are now finally able to become millionaires and travel on private jets.

    The term was coined in April 2018 by Berlin-based producer Shifted on Twitter, in response to fellow techno-maker Truncate tweeting incredulously about an RA review of Anja Scneider’s ‘Prosperity’ EP which starts off by claiming “techno is the new tech house”. “BUSINESS TECHNO is the new tech house”, he tweeted, and a new micro-genre cum insult was born, because if Serious Techno Bros believe in one thing, it’s that tech-house is the worst genre of all time.

    I sometimes forget how big dance music is. It's easy to slip into a bubble of glancing at Boomkat and whatnot and thinking it's still a somewhat niche concern, but those huge hardstyle raves, the dnb stuff in massive arenas etc are ridiculous.

    Hmm, which "controversy" do I care less about: business techno or Nina Kravitz's cornrows? Tough call.

    Leo says your thread is shit version. Store that up, wait for the perfect moment, then get him back. Sock him right in the kisser, just when he's least expecting it. Play the long game.

    agreed, but no western orthodox 'genre' in inverted commas is imaginative anymore, jameson's whole idea that what we are witnessing is the death of culture. the whole ironic detachment. even UK drill is ironic now. the trick is to turn into a youtube/soulseek yob

    for god's sake guys, this is what you all wanted. lester bangs nuggetmania! it's here already. music has never been so invigorating. can spend hours listening to it. things could not be better on that front even if the dwp starves you to death. so long as you've got something resembling a stable internet connection noone needs central heating and socks anyway. freeze to death but you still have mongolian throat singing somalian gabba at your fingertips.

    LOL! but seriously, sellout mainstream shit has existed in every genre, forever. it exists in techno (and honestly, it's not even a new phenomenon). a made up "controversy" for newbies, shock horror!

    It's basically just what some people are calling big room techno designed for the festival circuit. This sort of thing.
