Techno Two: The Second Generation

The Techno now controls. From a chart congested with club-pop where 'Big Fun' is still the blueprint, to an underground still trying to catch up with Derrick May's four year old 'Nude Photo', Detroit's machine-code rhythm assault is the hidden force behind the modern dance with home keyboards now featuring 'techno' presets, how far can we be from a dictionary definition?.

Try this: 'TECHNO' - A hyperactive electronic dance music still perceived as an underground phenomenon despite influence now beyond all control'. If Kevin Saunderson ever runs out of sunglasses he could always go spotting 'Good Life' chords with his lawyer. This records underlines the integrity of Detroit Techno when a compilation of half a dozen "Good Lifes", a 'No UFOs' and perhaps a 'Strings Of Life' might have done the job. This is a music of such vibrancy it has no time to stop and spin back though the samples and similarities, Juan Atkins may never be inducted into the Rock 'N' Roll Hall Of Fame, but Techno continues to develop not as some tributary influence on European dance but as a creative force with a life of its own. Here the complexity of those initial circuit burning rhythms are matched by the ambient textures of Carl Craig's 'Elements' and Marty Bonds''Aftermath'. It goes deeper during Tim Brown's subsonic 'Stark'and higher on Octave One's almost spiritual 'I Believe'. As music obviously inspired by the first compilation continues to emerge on a week basis, it's difficult to estimate just how many versions of 'Elements' will exist after this record has been absorbed into the sampler and the psyche of a world in love with the sound of Roland TR 909 hi-hats. This is a rare opportunity to hear into the future. This is the groove that won't stop.
