Do you use the terms electronic music and techno music interchangeably? Think they’re one and the same? Nope!
While both techno and electronic music have the same funky beats and rhythms and a lively tune, electronic music is the broad genre comprising all music made from electronic instruments. On the other hand, Techno is a sub-genre of electronic dance music called EDM.
If you enjoy listening to songs like Spastik, Conjure Dreams, Master Jack, I’m Strong, etc., techno is indeed your cup of tea. And nothing makes the fun more real than a live concert! So book your tickets to live techno and electronic concerts and get in the groove of this amazing music.
Techno music was first popularised in Detroit, USA. It gradually spread to the rest of the world. Today, the genre is distinguished by a distinct tempo between 120 to 150 beats per minute. Moreover, it also has a 4/4 central rhythm to drive the music.
While electronic music is easy to distinguish because of its machine-like beats, techno is even more pronounced.
Even within the techno genre, several important subdivisions first developed in Europe. These include hardcore, acid, ambient, and dub.
Techno is usually very instrumental and, therefore, highly DJ friendly. DJs can move from one song to another in the genre without missing a beat because of the nature of the music itself.
Rhythm is super important to the genre. In fact, like other EDM music, techno does not rely heavily on synthesizer keyboards, instead focusing on synthetic timbres and creative manipulation of electronic music.
If you’re a fan of electronic music in general or techno more specifically, you will enjoy rocking your hips to songs like Belly Dancer, Tell me Something Good, Commotion, Home Now, the Age of Love, Give it to Me, You Give me a Feeling, etc.
But you know what would be even better than listening to these on your Spotify? Going to live concerts by artists who’ve created such fantastic techno songs. All you need to do is book your tickets in advance. And to do that, check venues and dates when your favourite techno artists or bands will perform.
