The History of Techno

Let’s dive deep into Detroit’s music history

I’m going to take you back to when Techno first began. Back in the 1980s, a few Detroit natives decided to fuse house, electric, and funk. Thus creating – techno. After this, techno spread to the UK and Germany. After this, in 2001, Ford Motor Company decided to sponsor a festival to celebrate the birthplace of techno. Originally coined as ‘Detroit electronic music festival’ and later renamed to Movement – which is now Detroit’s largest Techno Festival. Check out our own deep dive into techno here!
