According to DJ L.A. Olympics, nightlife and underground dance music are at a turning characterized as tension between the old guard and the new. "A lot of people romanticize old school house and techno and don't appreciate how much digital music production has evolved in the past 20 years, or even new styles of dance music like club music," said the New York-based DJ. "I can't tell you how many thirtysomething white guys I have viciously argued with about how their beloved minimal techno or Frankie Knuckles throwback tracks just don't slap in the club anymore. It all sounds very dry and masculine to me."
It was this tension that inspired the DJ's debut single, "I Think (I'm Over Techno)." "I knew I wanted to create a track that had a bawdy, feminine energy with lots of attitude that [still sounded] as big as my 40" DD boobs." The track is the artist's "clapback to all the arrogant techno bros of the world."
