I have been playing techno since '82 thank you. I just find it
unimaginative to use synths & samplers for nothing but dance. I club once
in a while yes.

Must learn to live with that then. But you are a typical example of the
"clubber" limiting the techno-scene to dance. The above statement shows
just that.

DJ's have only a very limited taste in music. To much of what is being
called a genre in techno these days shouldn't have been more than an album.
Most DJ's has no artistic taste whatsoever.

yep, but make that 99% of techno.

I still love techo though, and it's what i listen to the most but i don't
mind if it has lyrics with a meaning, has a message, pushes the edge
somewhat and challenge me as a listener.
