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.

      A new, aesthetically-appealing music video for What So Not’s first release of the year, “Better, has been finally been released. The video’s unveiling comes in wake of the Australian producer’s announcement of his tour with Baauer.
      “Better’s” visual counterpart pairs strongly with the track itself featuring LPX, as both bring dream-like, artistic elements that blend together immaculately to deliver a full-sensory experience. The video itself features What So Not and vocalist LPX, backdropped against various arbitrary images that quickly disperse through different geometrical patterns. Enticingly visual frames and bold transitions create a truly surreal experience.
      What So Not and Bauuer gear up to co-headline their East Cast tour starting Thursday, October 19.

      Berlin based and Berlin bound techno enthusiasts alike ought to be uttering a resounding “techyes!”
      Further cementing Berlin’s reputation as the “techno capital of the world” is the city’s announcement of a new nightclub exclusively dedicated to the genre. Dubbed “OST,” the 600-capacity techno hub is slated to open for its inaugural evening of production on Saturday, November 4. While OST has yet to release a list of artists set to appear over the coming months, John Osborn, Vakula, LA-4A, an Jennifer Touch will take the decks to deliver the club’s first performances on November 4.
      Appropriately situated on the eastern edge of Friedrichshain, OST derives its name from the German word for “east.”  Those interested in attending OST’s launch party can visit the venue’s Facebook page here for event updates.

    • Hope all is well in your paradise. The invitation for the infamous City-Bush-Doof, aka CBD, is officially official! As the name suggests, the CBD is a music-based event set to the backdrop of Brisbane’s suburban jungle. 




      The City Bush Doof evolved as an idea that began as a lunch in the park and quickly turned into an all out party after receiving huge support on Facebook . Since it’s offical release on the 30th of September, first round tickets have already sold out! With over five thousand people interested in attending the event before the announcement of a lineup or venue, it’s no surprise that the City Bush Doof promises to be a defining event of 2017.  If you’re into dance music and good vibes, this is one Sunday sesh you won’t want to miss.




      Although the initial plan was to occupy public land in St Lucia, our application with the council was rejected, so we have had to move to a new location and will post closer to the date.


      The CBD was inspired with the aim of bringing just a small group of family and friends closer together but with so much interest and excitement, we opened the event to the public. Since, it's become a music-based event built on positivity, happiness and a mutual love of doof. So please please please take the opportunity to spend time with your bretheren and bask in the love. 


      Originally, we planned to run the event on donations but in order to host the best event possible, we needed more funds - and have since released tickets (check the link above). This year's event is on a Sunday and we're hosting a range of local and national artists. 


      Updates will be provided as we approach the event date.


      We can't wait to see you there!
