A petition has been launched to ban tech-house

Bit much?

Someone is fed up with the current state of tech-house and has optimistically launched a petition to ban the genre from existence.

Launched by a self-described “elitist prick”, the petition declares that tech-house has “no indistinguishable qualities” and also goes so far as to call it “offensive to any form of musicality”.

Some, like him, may argue the genre is going through an overly saturated phase, but there are plenty of DJs flying the tech-house flag for the good.

Still, the person behind this petition “would rather be stuck in a lift with [American comedian] Rosie O'Donnell and the whole cast of Loose Women after a bad curry than at a tech-house gig”.

Although the petition rips the heart out of those that enjoy tech-house, the petitioner also takes the piss out of himself.

“I am also 27 years old and can't get a girlfriend, so if someone can sort me out with one of those too please that'd be ace. Can't figure out why I don't have one, but I'm assuming it's because I am an elitist prick who gets angry over people's musical preferences and spends too much time online shitposting and being sad."

Admittedly, in 2013, Mixmag also declared the tech-house craze was a bit too much.

So far the petition has 75 backers. Who knows what will happen if it hits the hoped 100.
