For the longest time I worked in a techno club in sl. One of my oldest friends in sl became a dj and still is. Now I like almost any style of music. I don’t go a minute in the day without something playing in the background. But I never did understand the different styles of electronic music. Maybe because before I had worked there I had never listened to any of it. And, truth be told, I still can’t stand some of it. But with the clubs in the Village I keep running into new styles and sounds so I was reading an article about techno music and found a list of styles. This is just a partial list ….
