Posted at May 30th, 2016 | by Supreet.cheema | in

The recently held International Music Summit held in Ibiza has released their latest business report comprising of music industry growth trends of 2016. Among the various data presented, the data of trending sub-genres withing dance music realm showed some surprising facts. As per the report, Techno has become the best selling genre on Beatport beating Tech House and Deep House. It has risen from #2 spot to #1 in the second quarter of 2016.

The report also found out that Trance has fallen to the 10th most popular genre in the electronic music industry. It also showed that Drum & Bass is the quickest rising genre having jumped 3 spots up since quarter 1 of 2014. Deep house, which was at #1 in the beginning of 2014, has fallen to #3 by the end of the same year and has remained constant since then. Now since these are just the beatport data trends, it depends on various factors mostly on people willing to pay for music. The data hence implies that Techno fans are more loyal and buy their music.

While if you see in India, both Deep House and Techno are on the rise. This can be partially inferred from the gigs happening now and then in the various parts of the country. Sure, Dance music scene in India is still growing but it’s good to see people are expanding their horizons and not just focusing on big room. Let us know in comments which genre do you think is on the rise in India.
