What is Techno?

Techno is a type of electronic dance music that often has a repetitive, synthesized melody with a 4/4 time signature. Techno is usually produced with hardware synthesizers, drum machines, and sequencers.

Origins of Techno

Techno is a form of electronic dance music that emerged in Detroit, Michigan in the United States during the mid-to-late 1980s. The first recorded use of the word techno in reference to a specific genre of music was in 1988. Many styles of techno now exist, but Detroit techno is seen as the foundation upon which a number of sub-genres have been built.

Techno is generally repetitive instrumental music produced for use in a continuous DJ set. The central rhythm is often in common time (4/4), while the tempo typically varies between 120 and 150 beats per minute (bpm). Artists may use electronic instruments such as drum machines, sequencers, and synthesizers, as well as digital audio workstations. Drum machines from the 1980s such as Roland’s TR-808 and TR-909 are highly prized by producers today for their unique percussion sounds.

The Detroit Sound

Techno is a type of electronic music that originated in Detroit, Michigan in the 1980s. The sound of techno is characterized by a heavy use of synthesizers and drum machines, with a strong emphasis on repetitive beats. Techno music is often played at nightclubs and rave parties, and has been described as “the sound of the future.”

European Techno

Techno is a type of electronic dance music that originated in Detroit, Michigan, in the United States in the 1980s. The first techno tracks were produced by artists such as Juan Atkins, Derrick May, and Kevin Saunderson, who were inspired by the electro-funk sound of early 1980s tracks such as “Planet Rock” by Afrika Bambaataa and ” NUMBER ONE by Cybotron. This early techno sound was characterized by sparse arrangements of synthesizers and drum machines, with occasional vocals or guitar.

What is House?

House is a genre of electronic music that was developed in the 1980s in Chicago. It is characterized by a repetitive 4/4 beat and often features a clavinet or an electric piano. House music often has a sexual or sensual feel to it and is often associated with the club scene.

Origins of House

The origins of house music are deeply rooted in disco, soul and funk. House music first gained popularity in Chicago, where DJs would play extended versions of popular tracks to keep dancers entertained. These tracks would often include drum machine-based beats and electronic synthesizer melodies, which helped to create the signature sound of house music. As house music spread to other cities and countries, it began to evolve and incorporate different elements from a variety of genres, including techno, acid house and even Latin music. Today, house music is enjoyed all over the world by people of all ages.

House in the 1980s

The 1980s saw the development of house music, which combined elements of disco, Chicago’s warehouse sound, and electronic instruments. One of the earliest house tracks was Farley “Jackmaster” Funk’s “Love Can’t Turn Around”, which was released in 1986. In 1987, another very influential early house track was produced by Adonis. This track, “No Way Back”, is often credited as being the first ever deep house track.

House in the 1990s

In the 1990s, house music became more creative and experimental. Producers began to use different samples from other genres and tempo changes were common. The use of synthesisers and drum machines was also expanded. This decade saw the rise of trance music, which is a subgenre of house.
