World Techno Day is celebrated around the world on December 9th. This is an important holiday for connoisseurs of the direction. If you are one of these, we invite you to celebrate the date with us and have fun from the heart!
To briefly explain what techno is, you just need to say that it is machine music. It is non-melodious, does not have the sounds of live instruments, verses… But every listener will tell you that despite this, the style has its own soul and fullness! You just need to listen to the rhythms and let them pass through you.
Techno was formed in America in the city of Detroit in the second half of the 80s. In 1988, for the first time, the style is spoken of as a separate genre – it did not take long for electronic music to take official status. It is amazing how much the direction had to endure: some people did not accept it, devalued other people’s tastes and even demonized it. In fact, this is a cultural phenomenon that gave life to house, rave, acid … Perhaps these are the largest trends of the 20th century among young people.
It is noteworthy that:
- the first techno track released in the world was called “No UFO’s”, performed by Model 500;
- music had many names: it got its name in 1988 – articles in popular newspapers contributed to the event;
- one of the founders of the style said that techno is music that sounds like technology;
- the composition “Strings of Life” was performed for the first time on the world stage;
- techno is considered the ideal dance music.
