Detroit Techno

Although greatly unnoticed, Techno was invented in Detroit. Its original purpose was a reaction to inner-city decay, as a reaction of the African American struggle. Techno music started off as a form of protest, however, for whites, it has developed into an upbeat genre. Techno music is only recognized for the music of Berlin and Belgium- the sounds of Europeans. Instead of Marshall Jefferson’s “Move Your Body”. Techno exposed the diversity of Black people all over America, it proved that Blacks were capable of any and everything.
