The story behind the most misunderstood genre in dance music, delivered by Resident Advisor.
For well over a decade, tech house was commonly assumed to be a byword for uninspired, cookie-cutter dance music. Combining techno’s outer-space sensibility with the swung grooves of house, tech house became largely associated with big room commercial clubs, and the term was often casually used as a pejorative to describe any mid-tempo dance music thought to be in bad taste.

Ibiza will not require travellers to take a coronavirus test or quarantine upon arrival this summer, as Mixmag reports.
Officials in Ibiza even went as far to say they want to be the first place in the world to allow tourists to enter using a vaccine certificate or ‘passport’ as it’s also been called.
Spain will be part of the European Union’s ‘Digital Green Certificate’ scheme which allows travellers to show if they’ve had a vaccine, a negative test result or immunity from the virus due to having had it recently, via a QR code.
Spanish researchers found “no sign” of higher levels of Covid-19 infections in a mass music event held in Barcelona last month, the BBC reports.
Of the roughly 5,000 people in attendance, six tested positive within 14 days of the gig. This is a lower infection rate than currently seen in the general population and half the infection rate among people in the same age range. Infectious disease specialist Josep Maria Llibre concluded that there was “no sign that suggests transmission took place during the event.”
Researchers also found that four of the six people who tested positive were not infected at the event itself, but elsewhere. All attendees, who tested negative for the virus beforehand, wore masks but were not socially distanced.
The rate of infection among attendees was half the rate of people of the same age in Barcelona, researchers found.
