What is Techno?

Techno is a form of electronic dance music that emerged in the late 1980s. It is characterized by a repetitive four on the floor beat and often has a hypnotic feel. Techno is a very broad genre and can be divided into sub-genres such as acid techno, hard techno, and Detroit techno.

The Origins of Techno

Techno is a genre of electronic dance music that arose in the 1980s in Detroit, Michigan. It is characterized by a repetitive 4/4 beat, often with synthesizers and samplers. The first known use of the word techno, in reference to electronic music, was in 1988. Many styles of techno now exist, but Detroit techno is seen as the foundation upon which other subgenres have been built.

The Elements of Techno

The elements of techno include a careful blend of robotic and organic sounds. Heavy use of synthesizers, drum machines, and sequencers are common in techno tracks. The tempo is almost always between 120 and 150 beats per minute, with a four-on-the-floor kick drum pattern. The structure of a techno track often includes a long intro, followed by a build-up to the main drop. This can be followed by another section with a different arrangement or variation on the original theme.
