Stations with Genre Techno
Techno is versatile and multi-layered
It all started with Kraftwerk. The legendary band from Düsseldorf, which formed in 1970, quickly developed a ground-breaking sound. Kraftwerk combined technology with a somewhat classical compositional sense. Their experimentation led to the development of a style that became known throughout the world as techno. Until the '90s, a variety of different currents belonged to the genre due to their synthetically produced, electronic-sounding music: synthpop, EBM, industrial, new wave, electro wave and Detroit techno.
Then came the time of raves, huge parties where the DJs' sets knew no end. Stars like Sven Väth, Steve Bug, Marusha and Paul Van Dyk conquered just about every dance floor in the world. Ibiza became a party island, Berlin rose as the capital of techno clubs, and the Love Parade broke all records. Now techno has gone back underground, but as always it's multifaceted. From jumpstyle and hands-up to acid techno, trance, hardcore and minimal, you find them all at radio.net. Whether you prefer the old-school classics or something more discordant -- whether you savour a driving beat or ethereal melodies -- the stations at radio.net are as varied as techno itself.
