    Those are examples of Electronic, not Techno! Techno is it own subgenre, and it ain't stuff like DJ Tiesto I'll tell ya that (who I believe is awesome, for the record). Some Electronic music lovers would consider calling all electronic music "Techno" quite the insult!

    Techno is a subgenre of electronica and those are subgenres of techno. Atleast I think. I think it ALL starts to run together to a certain extent lol. Tiesto is more trance.

    Robert Miles pwns for sure lol. Chemical Brothers were good.... been replaced with Crystal Method and I miss Prodigy Angerfist is sweet.... I like the progressive house, too Oh and DJ Dean and DJ Antoine is ok. I like the stuff made by the nobodies, people who do it for fun. People like Paul Oakenfold make me want to cry

    I tell people that you don't listen to techno, you FEEL it but they think i'm crazy lol

    Hey, I'm with ya. Those guys are all pioneers in making electronic music as popular as it has become today (more so on an international level than here in the US).

    Also, I hate to bust out technicalities, but this happens to be somewhat of a speciality of mine.

    Electronic is the umbrella genre under Music, in general. Dance, Trance, Techno, Industrial, House, etc are all subgenres, that break down into further subgenres like acid trance, freetekno, progressive house, dark ambient, etc.

    Check it out for yourself: Definition of Electronic music and mostly complete list of electronic subgenres


    Oh and, uh, to tie all this in to carnivorous plants...my VFTs sway to some old Orbital all the time.

    That's really interesting!

    Now here's 2 questions, what's an example of "Pure" techno and of course... how the hell can you tell ALL of those tiny little subgenres apart?

    Even my parents love techno lol. I couldn't believe it when I found that out lol.

    Truthfully, you don't find many people "in the know" that still label electronic music Techno except the people who don't really listen to it (sorry if that comes across wrong). Like Eminem said, "Nobody listens to Techno!" and not because people don't like electronic music, but because what used to be called Techno is generally different these days and called something else.

    Dance/Trance/House are the most common terms for the artists you've mentioned. That's exactly where DJ Tiesto fits, as well.

    "If the robots win we'll have to listen to techno HECK NO (I'll never listen to techno!)" Lmao

    Thanks for that info, I'll have to investigate that further and start calling what I like differently.

    "I may not know art but I know what I like" lol
