This week’s iteration of the Friday Music Playlist features a compilation of Tech/Acid House songs that I’ve been sitting on for a while. Kayte and I attended CRSSD music festival this past weekend in San Diego (review coming!) and the primary genre featured over the weekend was the same strange blend of Techno and House that you will find featured in this playlist. While the vibe may not suit everyone, I think that you’ll find all of these tracks to be, at the very least, excellent elevator/background music (hehe).

Despite having been around for years, Tech/Acid House has seen a dramatic increase in popularity largely due to the widespread success of two major record labels: Dirtybird Records, founded 10 years ago by Claude Von Stroke, and brothers Justin and Christian Martin; and Hot Creations, founded by Jamie Jones and Lee Foss in 2010.

While I’ve featured Tech House before on Friday Music Playlists, this particular compilation contains tracks from lesser-known artists (and some well-known) – many of whom are on the record labels mentioned above.
