Where is the genre headed?

Techno music has seen a surge in popularity in recent years, with artists like Skrillex and Marshmello becoming household names. But where is the genre headed?

Most experts agree that the future of techno lies in its ability to cross over into other genres. Techno has always had a strong influence on genres like house and trance, and this is likely to continue. While some purists may object to this trend, it seems clear that the genre is evolving and growing. This can only be a good thing for fans of techno music.

One trend that is already evident is the growing popularity of so-called “melodic techno.” This subgenre combines the driving beats of traditional techno with catchy melodies and often vocals. It’s not uncommon for melodic techno tracks to be more than six minutes long, giving DJs plenty of time to build up a head of steam.

If you’re looking for something new to listen to, keep an eye on the melodic techno scene. It’s likely to be one of the most exciting areas of the genre in the years to come.

Popularity is hard to predict, but if the past is any indication, techno will continue to be popular in the years to come. 2009 was a big year for techno, with many new artists emerging and old favorites continuing to produce great music. Here are some of the best techno tracks of 2009:
