Cool, but frustratingly slow.

Also what's the point of genres like "French House" and "Detroit Techno" etc. These genres are ridiculous to the point where it sounds like satire.

Detroit Techno isn't obscure at all. It's a very well-established genre including probably most famously the work by Juan Atkins, Derrick May, and Kevin Saunderson. There have been at least 2 waves of it and it continues to influence electronic music from the fringes to the mainstream. If you're curious about it, I'd recommend Drexciya's The Quest as a starting point.

French House most likely refers the heavily filtered and compressed disco beats of e.g. Daft Punk, which had its heyday in the mid-to-late 1990s.

I may be wrong but I don't think they're particularly obscure genres

?? Detroit Techno is one of the original EDM genres. Like, 30 years ago. You can't get less obscure.
