Origin

Techno music originated in Detroit Michigan in the mid to late 1980’s. Developed by four individuals: Juan Atkins, Kevin Saunderson, Derrick May (the “Belleville Three”), and Eddie Fowlkes.

Influences

Drew from soul and funk roots to create intense grooves and repetitive beats. Resulted from a blend of electric jazz, electro music, Chicago house, and the influence of futuristic ideas that were influential in culture at the time.

Developments

Techno was originally mostly popular in the UK, Belgium, and Germany and gained its popularity through the rave party scene. Yet, did not translate as easily to the United States. Nowadays, EDM is an umbrella term for everything techno related.
