Techno

 

In the mid to late 1980s, there was a rise in computers. They began to help people with a lot of things, even music. Because of this rise in computers, a man named Juan Atkins and three of his classmates brought the Techno genre to light in Detroit, Michigan. They pulled together electronic beats from funk and soul songs. All the instruments that were heard in the songs were all electronic noises put together with the software on a computer. Just like the disco genre, this genre was known as dancing music and was the music everyone played at parties. This is because it was easier to listen to because they did not need to get a band all they needed to have a party was a DJ. During this time songs like “Rhythim is Rhythim – Strings of Life” by Derrick May became very popular. Other popular artists include Jeff Mills, Green Velvet, and Carl Cox. Although the genre is not as popular amongst the black community anymore, it is still widely popular amongst some white communities.
