Gays Hate Techno is excited to announce the release of the 4th installation of our Gays Hate Techno compilation. Launched as a Facebook group in 2011 for queer underground techno fans, the jokingly named “Gays Hate Techno” quickly evolved into a global family that supports a diverse online community. Our annual spring gathering in Northern California, as well as our series of original compilations, are the output of our community members' creative expression.
This compilation features premiere techno artists who help connect queer techno fans from all over the world.
Gays Hate Techno is a community of DJs, artists, enthusiasts, and fans with a common mission to break through stereotypical barriers and connect people via a musical obsession. This selection was curated by our diverse and inclusive online community. Gays Hate Techno IV spawns across the techno genre from the brutal and broken tones of Acid Daddy, across melody-driven synthetic composures by Alex is and All That’s Done. Escalating the tempo and anxiety, Dial F, Ghostlsut, and Jacksonick present distorted, contemporary hard techno masterpieces with a focus on sonic drones and prolific processing. Mark O'Brien and Odd Duck ride the techno momentum delivering hints of progressive melody. Orphan Raver offers a dialed-tempo reprise while Painters Radio and StrikeStone! navigate us back into tertiary techno territory. Endnotes from Synthezman and Tom Ass pay proper homage to acid house principles as Trovarsi ventures into blatant realms of Chicago style house and early techno.
The Gay Hate Techno movement cements that otherworldly sounds can collide with primitive instinctual forces to unite a collective community with their inner club-lust.
