    It's not a jab and I'm sorry if you took it that way. It's not irrelevant either, it's just a simple fact that techno and tech house have been played on mainstream radio. They're still being played on the radio, but perhaps not in the New York radio market. It might have helped if you had specified exactly what you meant by mainstream radio.

    How about BBC Radio 1? Is that not mainstream enough?

I have always said that the “current” underground form of techno/tech house gets a pass unlike festival electro hard dance EDM because it is underground and anything not commercial is cool. However, all of the above genres are still extreme forms of dance in a sense that the average music listener of either genre are at odds with the other.
    You may not want to pass off judgment, but a lot of your post seems to boil down to "why do people like what I don't like?"

    What underground techno and tech house acts are calling for the EDM bubble to burst?

    Why are techno and tech house not sustainable? They've existed for decades now and show no sign of slowing down. They find their own niche, and they aren't seeking crossover appeal or mainstream radio play.

What is sustainable is a party like previous years when the night develops from deeper sounds leading up to bigger and harder beats and ending off with deeper darker/after hour sounds- the essence of a journey. This can virtually apply to any genre and its sub-genres.

    Yep, again, your opinion. Honestly, I'm not sure what to think of your posts. You seem to think that the entire electronic music scene should conform to your idealized version of a perfect night out. It's all a bit ridiculous that you think every DJ should play tracks with vocals and "purity" during a sunrise set.

    Underground techno isn't made for Ibiza, it's made for Berghain.
