What is Techno

Recommended Posts

Littleloz

Hi everyone,

I hope i don't offend anyone in asking this, but was exactly is Techno?  I see so many events popping up on facebook and here that are Techno events, but i really don't know what it is.

Can someone please post some links to some music that is classified as Techno?  I guess there's subgenres of Techno too, so if you have any information about the sub genres also, that would be really helpful!

Thanks :)

Quoted from Pete Helskanki:

----------------------------
- Techno is a "genre" traced back to 1973 
(Source)


- Techno has risen in popularity in recent years
(Source)
- Techno has many subgenres, many of them deviating from the 1973 sound considerably (no source)
- One of the leading underground techno labels today is Pole Group (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tBbObY3psLI)
- The term "Techno" is used very commonly to describe House and Tech House genres in a bid to exploit current trends this is true with other genres (source)

Oh one more statement to add which is more of a personal view point: Two of the most well-known brands in Techno are Drumcode and CLR (Official) - Drumcode features very accessible music with simpler compositional elements. The structures making way for vocal elements. This kind of sound is often a gateway for individuals exploring the deeper sounds of the genre.

      This release features the sonic worlds of variant’s “vortexual” tape session series (all 8 editions are included) which has never been available in digital format. An expansive collection of all the developments which took place over the course of 4 years of recording this epic project. The sound design and vast array of analog circuitry illuminates these recordings with an ocean like depth, diving deeper than some of the original releases.

      This is sonic immersion of the highest order.
      For those of you who have purchased the releases individually, you will receive download code(s) to the content. Thank you for your support of these analogue dreams.

      “What disturbs and depresses young people is the hunt for happiness on the firm assumption that it must be met with in life. From this arises constantly deluded hope and so also dissatisfaction. Deceptive images of a vague happiness hover before us in our dreams, and we search in vain for their original. Much would have been gained if, through timely advice and instruction, young people could have had eradicated from their minds the erroneous notion that the world has a great deal to offer them.”
      “Man can do what he wills but he cannot will what he wills.”
      Arthur Schopenhauer

      Roger van Lunteren( 030303 records, fabric(uk), Mental Groove (ch)) aka Areveeal embarks on an ambient journey full of sonic sideways and analogue synth jams, again displayin Follow this compass and path while the music proceeds, as it takes patience and experience not to skip through it.
      With a duration of 63 minutes „amblex“ – released on the Frankonian experimental cassette label Silhouette Tapes – almost doubles the duration of RVL’s distortion tale „float“ (37 minutes / tmæins CD, 2001). Recorded in 1994 to music cassette, RVL releases an epic ambient recording that had laid dormant in his drawer for almost 23 years. Visual support comes again from the Dutch illustrator Merijn Hos (merijnhos.com, 030303 recs/Utrecht). His artwork perfectly underlines all acoustic nuances of „amblex“, easily inducing synesthetic impressions in the listener.

    • Luigi Tozzi’s fathomless techno deep-dives and captivating biomorphic atmospherics have been a favorite of ours at Dub Monitor since the young Italian producer began regularly releasing in 2014. Tozzi is one of a surprising cohort of Italian producers who have distinguished themselves as an undeniable vanguard of ingenious experimentation in techno and commitment to its fusion of modernist and shamanistic impulses. Think of Lucy, the Dadub guys, Voices from the Lake, to name just a few. I was curious to know how Tozzi came to be doing what he’s doing, how he goes about making such weirdly organic techno, where he thinks Italian techno is going right now, and what his future plans might be.

We want to bring elements of the old skool raving days into today and provide all participants with a blend of what was and what is.

It was established with the intention of expanding and growing an alternative music culture in Brisbane.

      We want to share our passion for varying styles of futuristic, raw, melodic and wonky deep tech house music. These sounds can also be heard live every Wednesday on Soulfinity Radio between 9- 10pm AEST, with monthly guest appearances by some local and international DJ's and producers.
