Actually, Techno is not a Detroit creation. There is plenty of German and Belgian "Techno" that pre-dates Detroit. ZYX's sublabel Technodrome International (created in 1987) alone predates the detroit scene by a full year which started in 1988.

This is such great input. It really contradicts everything that I wrote. Lol

A Masterpiece in Italian Techno. This is an album (if you can find it- especially on cd) that cannot be missed. Classic songs like Airport, Dance, and Dig-It (a 1990 song, not to mention) will make your jaw drop. Also, the surprising "Can you feel it ... See full review

Regardless of what anyone writes about Morrison or Atkins, their music is not what most people consider Techno music. We can all keep listing anyone who used the word "Techno" on an album, song ect... and it can have no relation to the style of music ... See full review

1 of 2? Talla jumped on the bandwagon in the 1980s when he was creating so much music??? Bigod 20, Robotiko Rejekto ect.... Then you are really up there in the clouds. I am suppose to take an opinion of an unknown compared to Talla and what most of ... See full review

Talla is multi-talented without doubt. You can see the different styles between Energize which has more of an EBM sound compared to "Body to Body" which is pure early Techno he basically created out of nowhere. Notice the Techno drome International label ... See full review

The "others" you are refering must be some famous mystery people. Unfortunately the point here is being missed. Talla like Saunders, Atkins and many more artists to come after were influenced by groups like Kraftwerk, that is not a debate. But to state ... See full review

Junie Morrison, Juan Atkins and Man Parrish clearly had no intentions of using the word "Techno" as a music genre. They more relate to the "Techno Twins" in this aspect. Atkins , Saunders, and Man Parrish's music is EBM. There is nothing Techno about ... See full review

The concept of "Techno" as a music genre was not heard of in the Unites States until the earliest 1991. If we were to take any usage of the word "Techno" prior to Talla 2xlc then we might as well link the "Techno Twins" as an even earler source than Man ... See full review

One of the very earliest Techno tracks released by the group. Robotiko Rejekto was created by the "founding Father" of Techno music as we know it today, Talla 2XLC. A Classic song! If anyone wants a glimpse of what early Techno music sounded like, this ... See full review

Classic early Italo Dance ( I dont know why its not mentioned in the style of music). Antico was one of the early groups that introduced the 90s style of Italo dance. Nothing before 1990 or after 1996 has ever come close. 90s Italo is perhaps the ... See full review

Talla 2XlC (ANDREAS TOMALLA) the "FATHER OF TECHNO" the true creator of this music genre has rightfully earned his place in history. Before Atkins there was surely Talla who was the creator of "Moskwa TV (with tracks like "Tekno talk" in 1987), Robotiko ... See full review

Although this might be the so-called start of the Detroit sound of Techno it had basically no significance in the United States. The album itself is mediocre at best. It is quite safe to say that a music genre called "Techno" was already in existance in ... See full review

This compilation is one of the greatest ever to be put together. A Crown Jewel for any old Style Euro-Techno lover. ZYX at its greatest. 1990 to 1995 was the peak of Dance music. Nothing comes close to Euro, Techno and Italo from this time period. ZYX ... See full review
