The Techno genre has been added to the The Dance Music Guide. I am aware that Techno has a lengthy and celebrated past that extends way beyond the year 2000, but in keeping with the theme of creating a guide for modern dance music, the cutoff is 2000, as with all the other genres that are currently included on the site.
I am also mindful of the fact that Techno has many subgenres, some more niche than others. In the future I plan on expanding the Techno guide out into many these subgenres, but for the time being, a mixture of these genres will sit under the main umbrella of Techno. I have attempted to include a decent selection of Techno and it’s subgenres, Dub, Minimal, Detroit, Hardgroove and a smattering of others.
I’ve featured many of the heavyweights of Techno, including Jeff Mills, Adam Beyer, The Advent, Luke Slater, Chris Liebing, Perc, Sasha Carassi and many more. A large number of labels have been represented as well, Drumcode, Respekt, Naked Lunch, Phobiq, CLR and numerous others.
I hope someone finds it handy!Visit the Techno genre guide
