    The only way to use beatport these days, IMO, is the label search.

    genre pages -> artist charts -> labels -> other sites/sources

    You finish a Trance track and you label it as Progressive House because all the kids will jump to that genre filter.

    Beatport doesn't give a rats ass. "Hey. You are the guy who made the track. You say it's Progressive House, fine with me. I make the 40% either way."

    So know that everybody's a DJ, the knuckleheads go searching through the Progressive House charts and BAM! "This track is cool."

    Next Saturday they are dropping a Trance track in the Progressive House set at the frat house blowout.

    that and everyone miss labels everything from lack of knowledge...

    Me too. As soon as I saw the words Beatport and Genre in the same sentence, I knew what the problem would be!

    Traxsource & Juno, Trackitdown and iTunes before even venturing on Beatport for me

    Genre differences aside, is track No. 1 actually Tech House? Because if it is, I really like it, and may have to explore this further!

    (It's not that I'm an idiot, but I normally mix D'n'B and Garage!).

    I know the genres in beatport are horrible and stupid, but Still The Same Man is mainstream tech house, not electro!

    Still more accurate than the Progressive House charts.

    That's the point. Anyone who digs Track 1 will not dig Track 2. They are like polar opposites. How can that be the same genre???

    The one thing that gets me is the classification of 'House'. Typically, a clubbier, more energetic feel is given this label (ie. funky/jackin' house) but not all of the time. Since this is the genre I typically play, I find it extremely difficult to find what's hot on BP for this sound, so I just stick to Stompy and Traxsource since they've actually got 'Jackin House' and 'Funky' classifications, which gives me pretty much exactly the sound I'm looking for, unlike BP's 'House' which could mean goddamn anything...

    Yeah they are abusing the term a bit. #2 is bigroom hands in the air house house while #1 has a much more chilly atmosphere, not necessarily underground, more like a sunset party or something along those lines.

    This isn't anything new either. Tech House has always had it's fair amount of pure house tracks listed in it.

    PS: Tube & Berger FTW!
