25 Best New Tech House Songs on Spotify
Everything started with house music in Chicago during the ’80s. Ever since then, such a high number of subgenres evolved, that the lines became so thin between many of them, that they started to overlap with each other. That is exactly what happened early on in the ’90s with techno and house, when DJs started to showcase the best elements of both worlds, creating so-called “tech house” songs. The groovy and melodic chord progressions keeps clubbers dancing all night while they are still surrounded by an often dark vibe of tech-house tunes. Many people find it impersonal, pointing out that the market is now getting overly saturated with “one size fits all” tech-house songs, while those producers who truly pour their heart into their productions, rarely get as much hype and attention they deserve. Well, one thing is for sure: tech-house has become so popular within the realm of dance music that it was named the best-selling genre last year, according to the 2020 Beaport Review. To better understand this interesting mixture, check out the newly created Tech House Theory 2021 playlist below, including 25 of the recently released best tech house songs on Spotify.
