It's all about chillout. The feeling I get from listening to it is like none other.

So it may not actually be "techno" that you enjoy.

That's what I was thinking I used to hate Techno, but I'm starting to come around. I really like a lot of stuff from Jesse Somfay and his latest album is pretty amazing. I like some stuff from Umek as well.

Well, I know the basics ie house, techno, dnb etc etc, I just don't know much when you get into the nitty gritty, ie the latter parts of the education thread

More minimalist tech though.

It's sad that the poll doesn't include everything... and it left out some pretty major stuff.

Indeed it did. "Progressive" doesn't even mean anything by itself in regards to music, it's more of an adjective.

Well there's progressive breaks, progressive trance, progressive house, etc... and those are actual genres. But yea, just "progressive" kinda puts someone in a spot if they love progressive breaks but hate progressive trance. I dunno... the poll itself is uninformed. I almost want to close the thread, because there's an exact same thread available, but without a poll, and newer... so it's like... eh... biased moderation.

That's exactly what I was getting at...it's an adjective but means nothing on its own.

I'll be more than happy to make another thread with a bigger variety of genre choices in the poll if that's cool with you and the other mods. That, and I'll make it so you can vote for more than one genre.

There's already another thread like this, just without a poll.
