Techno is one of the earliest styles of House music that evolved from the underground in Detroit and was pioneered by the likes of Juan Atkins, Derrick May, Kevin Saunderson, Eddie Fowlkes and Jeff Mills.

Techno combines raw beats often from the Roland TR-808 or TR-909 drum machines with industrial / mechanical sounds, reflecting the heavy car manufacturing environment of Detroit in the eighties.

Others well-known artists in Techno include, Richie Hawtin, Dave Clark, Carl Cox, Sven Vath, Amelie Lens, Monika Kruse, Adam Beyer and DJ Anna.

Famous record labels in this style of House music include Drumcode, Afterlife, Axis, Tresor, Plus-8 and Transmat.
