i really do hate to sound like an elitist fan but i just dont understand how the fuck you can call every fucking electronic producers music “techno”
odds are if youre calling deadmau5, skrillex, daft punk, any of the more popular producers “techno” youve never heard actual techno in your life
god i probably sound like such a prick right now but seriously
daft punk isnt techno deadmau5 isnt techno skrillex isnt techno
i have a list on my computer somewhere of nearly every edm subgenre and the list is fucking LONG. its got about 300 different subgenres on it or something of the sort. i dont care if you know everything on that list i just want people to fucking be educated.
even if youre a casual fan you should know your shit. im the most casual homestuck fan you could find but i know my shit about homestuck. same with a lot of stuff. a lot of video games and some fucking anime whatever. other bands. mcr. i know my shit.
thats all im trying to say. if youre into something educate yourself. you dont have to know everything just know what fucking genre youre listening to or whatever.
the thing is that techno is a specific subgenre so it just fucking murders the meaning of whatever the ignorant person is trying to even say
which is why i think people really just shouldn’t use the word at all okay because unless you’re a huge fan you will be using it wrongly
so tldr JUST DON’T USE THE WORD TECHNO
