When you hear about electric music or dance music, most of the time it is referring to Techno music. This genre started in the early 1980’s in Detroit. Due to the increased availability of the electronic synthesizers, this music spread like wild fire around the globe. Today, this is one of the most iconic genres of music, having fans all around the world. Artist after artist joined in the flow and produced superb music in this genre. Over time we have had some of the best of electronic instruments, synthesizers and drum machines making heads bang in night clubs. Here are some of the best Techno songs we have had over time:
