No, I've never much liked old school US house, too many awful vocals. The more acid bleepy stuff I do quite enjoy. But, yes, mostly I prefer techno too.
Yes, to a very queer crowd. Without that I probably wouldn't like it half as much.
uh, no. That's not what I meant at least in the UK. A straight proper dance music commentariat crowd. those tunes are way too soft for gay techno parties where the techno is nosebleed.
In the US things might be totally different granted.
But in the UK the RA types got on him 'finally a queer house producer who sells our anxiety back to us' - like I said, I don't mind her exploiting that nich, it's just that as someone who used to go to disco and hardcore techno nights both with a mixed queer/straight crowd I don't really need to be told a lot of that stuff. A lot of it is like conceptronica in that regard, you have to read the interviews to get a hold on what she is thinking.
