There is little doubt (if any) that the electronic music soundscape is constantly evolving, with new sub-genres emerging in recent years. One particular sub-genre though is gaining more attention and playtime than ever before, and that genre is tech house.
This is more evident as of late with tech house gaining more attention in the scene than ever. Case in point is the Las Vegas casino/hotel Wynn Las Vegas whose XS nightclub has recently made tech house artists Jamie Jones, Solomun, and Black Coffee as the club’s new resident DJs under the banner “We Are The Future”. And in the EDM hub of Ibiza, clubs like Pacha and Ushuaïa, have been gradually going for tech house DJs over the past few years.
Perhaps the most telling, or damning as some may say, is the report from Beatport last year that tech house had now overtaken traditional EDM to become its biggest selling music genre.
