Techno is a form of electronic dance music (EDM) that emerged in Detroit,
Michigan in the United States during the mid to late 1980s which possesses a purely
synthetic sound (with the exception of occasional vocal samples) centered around
a four-to-the-floor beat and mechanically precise rhythms.
The first recorded use of the word techno, in reference to a 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 subgenres have been built.
The initial take on techno arose from the melding of popular electronic music by
artists such as Kraftwerk, Giorgio Moroder and Yellow Magic Orchestra with
hi-NRG and African American music including funk, electro, Chicago house and
electric jazz. Added to this is the influence of futuristic and fictional
themes that are relevant to life in American late capitalist society—particularly
the book The Third Wave by Alvin Toffler. Pioneering producer Juan Atkins cites
Toffler's phrase "techno rebels" as inspiring him to use the word techno
to describe the musical style he helped to create. This unique blend of influences
aligns techno with the aesthetic referred to as afrofuturism. To producers
such as Derrick May, the transference of spirit from the body to the machine
is often a central preoccupation; essentially an expression of technological
spirituality. In this manner:
"techno dance music defeats what Adorno saw as the alienating effect
of mechanisation on the modern consciousness".
