Electronic Dance Music

Techno which is a form of electronic dance music originated out of Detroit, Michigan during the mid to late 1980’s. Techno was formed through the mixing of different styles of music such as Chicago house, funk, electro, and electric jazz. Techno is usually credited to 3 men who were known as the “The Belleville Three.” Their names were Juan Atkins, Kevin Saunderson and Derrick May and they all attended  school together at Belleville High. Techno utilizes repetitive instrumentals with a central rhythm. Techno spread from The United States to places in Europe such as UK, Belgium, and Germany.
