Get Familiar With Detroit Techno: 10 Essential Songs
"Although widely associated with Europe, techno music was invented in Detroit and its suburbs in the early 1980s by young African-Americans armed with drum machines, futurist ideals and a predilection for Kraftwerk. Artists like Juan Atkins, Derrick May and Kevin Saunderson used whatever technology they could get their hands on to pioneer a cutting-edge sound made up of growling synths and driving dance beats. In the process, they set in motion one of the essential musical movements of the 20th century."

Download these then set aside a day to listen to them. The first one alone is mindboggling.

I enjoyed listening to all these, thanks. I used to listen to Kraftwerk a lot.
