Techno is a genre of electronic dance music that originated in Detroit, Michigan in the early 1980s. It is characterized by its repetitive four-on-the-floor beat and a typical tempo of 120-150 beats per minute. Techno music is often associated with a dark and industrial aesthetic.

The term “techno” comes from the Greek word “tekhne,” which means “art” or “skill.” The genre was originally created by DJs who were experimenting with new ways to create electronic music. They would often use drum machines, synthesizers, and sequencers to create their music.

Techno music quickly spread from Detroit to other cities around the world, and it soon became a global phenomenon. Today, there are many different subgenres of techno music, including minimal techno, acid techno, and dub techno.
