ELECTRO/TECHNO

Most of Electro lovers are still angry about genres like Electro-Clash and Electro-House stealing the name & the sense of the original “ELECTRO”. To be honest, i haven’t got any problems with those illegitimate children, my only one regret about Electro music is its unofficial separation with its wife the Techno music.
I really missed the time when productions represented the hybrid combination called “ElectroTechno” (more relevant via the sounds than the denomination), the finest masterpieces were clearly produced & played during this period (1982-2002). Currently 80% of producers who did the 2 styles wouldn’t to be ranked in ‘Electro’ box and claimed only the greatly esteemed ‘Techno’ word & affiliation. Since the beginning of 00’s, according to my point of view, I feel like the Underground Electro scene doesn’t seem to get over this divorce and keep trying to survive in the shadow (repeating sometimes the same old formula while forgetting some of the main ingredients …therefore boring the devoted listeners). In addition, the new straight-electro-producers seem a bit close-minded, not very interested by any other type of music and especially not by their “ex-soulmate” the TECHNO which is still very rich in musicality. Therefore the “modern” Electro music is often poor & not universal…
However I’m not saying Electro music is dead, good exceptions make my day every day. But I’m pretty sure if Electro was still connected with Techno, ELECTRO/TECHNO will be on the front jiggling the floors & the minds. (To be realistic, this gathering isn’t going to happen again because Techno music lives well in its own way)
Anyway, I don’t really want to conclude on something negative or positive, I just wished to share my opinion

…and now let’s the music takes control with this masterpiece for remind the (unforgettable) powerful connection:
