Techno, techno, techno. It’s one of our favorite things – and we’re not alone, apparently. Beatport has announced that its top-selling genres include, to no surprise, techno, tech house, house and deep house. Techno dominates as the #1-selling genre on the platform, followed by tech house at #2 and house music + deep house at #3 and #4 respectively.
With the massive spike in popularity that we’ve seen in recent years on the house and techno front, we can’t say we’re surprised – and we’re definitely pleased as well. It’s also important to note that the sub-genres – particularly the addition of new sub-genres like melodic house and techno – play their own powerful role in propelling the dominance of the house and techno scenes forward both online and on the dance floor.
Jack Bridges, Beatport’s Label & Artist Relations Director, commented:
“While Beatport’s main House and Techno categories represent the biggest floor-filling tracks across the genres, Melodic House & Techno brings together a thriving sound that has not been easy to categorise as the lines blur between sounds and styles.”
Long live house and techno!
