Patrick, I have no idea what has got you so worked up about this. It
sounds to me as though you need to find some new clubs to hang out in.
I can't recall the last time I was in "a public space" and forced to
listen to this mystical "compositional technique" that you're
referring to. My kids and their friends don't listen to it, or go to
clubs that play it, either in LA or here in Philadelphia. I've been in
plenty of bars/restaurants/lounges over the last couple of years that
play Thievery Corporation much more than they ever play anything that
fits the description you've been offering us. That was true in
Barcelona, in Berlin, in Philadelphia, London and New York. I'm not
even sure what fraction of any age group actually goes the kind of
club you're talking about, although certainly its not zero.
