The Validation of Techno

Does one need intellectual validation to enjoy techno(or anything)?

"Electronic music and photography have more than a few things in common: crucially, both genres' dependence upon mechanical, electronic and/or digital reproduction. Perhaps more importantly, both genres have lagged behind their older "siblings" (painting or traditional acoustic or electrically amplified music) in becoming fully recognized and validated on their own terms. Far from being a coincidence, their shaky reputations are wholly wrapped up in their reproductive methods."
