Electronic music was an experiment that essentially pushed the boundaries of technology and sound. This new genre produced different mixed and blended sounds amplified through speakers that effectively changed our moods, how we felt, and what we thought.
The two main protagonists, Carl Cox and Martin Garrix--two successful music producers-- take us back in time to Detroit, which was known for soul and R&B music, or the Motown Sound. In the 70s, artists started fusing technology with different instruments in the Motor City. They produced this new sound, called Techno--a “genre of electronic dance music characterized by a repetitive four on the floor beat.” Created and used primarily by DJs initially, techno steadily grew in popularity in the US and eventually expanded to the UK, becoming a worldwide sound.
