This is what I see when I read your post
First of all, let's get one shit straight. Whatever the fuck you kids are listening to calling it "deep house" just isn't, so please stop. Very little of what is called deep house nowadays actually is. It's not quite disco either, that's a fucking insult to the disco greats eg. Donna Summer, Gloria Gaynor, Diana Ross, etc. It's just 80's disco-influenced crap pop, ie, what KILLED disco completely. I admit that I'm guilty of calling it disco, but that's just because of a lack of a better name and it's what it sounds like the most. I swear every time I hear a Wolf + Lame/Slow Crap set I want to stab my ears and put myself out of my misery. I was so turned off by what I heard and saw at my last visit to the Marcy, that I'd rather die than go through it again. I still like tech house, but very few do it right lately, all sets sound generic to me and I am ultimately bored. Yes, I am a true techno head and I do believe techno in a beach/day party setting can be done. Shit, it used to be done all the time a few years ago.
Lounger and xpander understand my rants best. If I wanted a safe lineup, I'd be more of a festival goer and eat all the BPM shit up, or Coachella, Ultra, Burning Man or whatever as long as I'm high enough, but I actually appreciate and demand quality music and I refuse to be fed the garbage that most take, no matter how high I am. To be perfectly honest, a lot of friends that went to BPM told me that I didn't miss much with the exception of the minus party, and there's no way in hell I'd spend my time and money to fly my ass to Mexico for one party. Going to a festival should be a complete experience and I just don't see myself getting that @ BPM because 1) I don't like the music and 2) I don't like the people this music attracts or the attitudes. If that makes me a hater then so be it; I could not give two shits.
