As a music style, techno originated in a number of different cities. You could say that Germany and the United States were techno pioneers in the late seventies. Yes, techno is that old! Techno sprung forth from electro with influences from minimal and industrial music. In the 80’s Germany became known for their signature industrial sound.
American techno was a tad more melodic than its German counterpart, which resulted in a more danceable style of techno.
