Techno (англ. Techno) – is a genre of electronic music that originated in the mid- 1980s in Detroit and its suburbs , and subsequently taken up by European producers . It is characterized by the artificiality of sound , focusing on mechanical rhythms, multiple repetition of the structural elements of music. Birth : 1985 heyday : 1994

“Techno – this is music that sounds like technology ,” – says Juan Atkins, one of the founders of the genre.

It is believed that techno invented the so-called ” Belvillskaya trinity ” – ” initiator ” Juan Atkins, « innovator » Derrick May and “engine” Kevin Sanderson. In the mid- 1980s, these three black college friends from the Detroit suburb of Belleville, as they themselves say , trying to make the German electronics in the spirit of Tangerine Dream and Kraftwerk dance more suitable for DJs and clubs. In fact, we can say that the techno arose at the confluence of genres such as synth- pop, electro and house .

Despite the fact that the first techno track assumed No UFO’s from the Model 500 (one of the aliases Juan Atkins ), released in 1985 , the genre for a long time did not have any specific names . Earlier this music and just called House, and a new disc , and even hip-hop. Name “techno” genre received in 1988 thanks intended for the UK compilation of Detroit dance music under the name «Techno! The New Dance Sound Of Detroit » and a number of articles in magazines The Face and NME, where this compilation advertised .

An interesting fact is that this compilation was originally supposed to call it «The House Sound Of Detroit». But the music that fit the name of house made in Chicago, and sounded differently (see Chicago house) . Then it was decided to use the word techno, which is basically used by some musicians, but more particularly associated with hip-hop . The success of this compilation played a role – ” latter-day ” genre called techno received recognition .

If the U.S. techno music was just an underground phenomenon , in the UK it has surged to the main music arena of the country in the late 1980s .

Techno – is a music of expensive equipment . Emptiness in this music is often more important than anything else. Try to go out at 5 am and walk to the center of the city. And listen . Here is the emptiness of the frozen city is techno. And, apparently , the noise of cars , trains, wipers , rain – all this sounds familiar , but in the context of emptiness they find truly colossal volume and value , they protrude HD textures in the ears , they make seek contact in their combinations , they call to understand the essence civilization , are constant attempts to improve the world around him at the cost of destroying chaotic but lush and diverse nature in favor of monotonous jumble of concrete .
