    Scroll down to the bottom and behold the same exact track [ECLIPSE] (same mix) under two different genres:

    Probably had different people put genre tags on each of those releases... I don't know man I could entertain arguments for this track being either techno or tech house. It'd be one thing if a song was labeled Hip Hop on one release and DnB on another, but this just doesn't seem like a big deal to me.

    Cool track by the way.

    Didn't you post about Beatports fucked up genre labelling last month? and the month before that? Yeah its fucked up. move on. Or at least update your previous thread rather than cluttering this place with pointless new threads.

    Genre's are a guideline not a boundary, don't get your panties in a ta-wist.

    Genres matter to the point where you don't play DnB when you're supposed to play deep house. Techno and tech house are so close anyway, producers never go "hmm, I shouldn't do that cos the song will then become techno instead of tech house"
