Learn Techno Music Producing with the Recording Connection

Thank you, Detroit, Michigan, the birthplace of the electronic dance music genre known as techno. Although there are many subgenres of techno music, there is no disputing that Detroit is where it began. Since then, techno has evolved and taken the world by storm.

Techno music is the melding of the sounds of early 80s pioneers like Kraftwerk and Georgio Moroder with African American influenced music such as funk and jazz. The word “techno” most likely comes from the fact that this influential musical style has always been obsessed with futurism. The techno style is repetitive in nature, employed by DJs who usually favor the common time signature of 4/4. Common techno subgenres include: acid techno, ambient techno, digital hardcore, ghettotech, techstep and trance.
