Following on from our popular, Synthwave, House and Trance ‘Essentials’ series, there was only ever one person to go to when it came to looking at the beginnings of Techno – the man himself Kirk Degiorgio.
In this set of videos, we start with a detailed look at the tracks and producers that emerged from the Detroit scene back in the late ’80s that helped forge the sound of Techno as we know it today along with the different hardware used.
Kirk then sets about showing us how we can recreate that Detroit sound using today’s accessible software from synths, patterns, samplers and drum machines.
A passionate insight into the origins of Techno from one of the UK’s best.
