Funzing x Mixmag: The Roots of Techno

From the clubs of Berlin and the warehouses of Brooklyn to the forums of Barcelona and the fields of Buckinghamshire, techno has become the dominant sound of global dance music.

While many know the story of how three school friends from the suburbs of Detroit – Juan Atkins, Kevin Saunderson and Derrick May – invented the genre back in the 1980s. This talk by Mixmag Editor Duncan Dick draws on the magazine’s archives, interview material, and of course the music, to celebrate the 'Belleville Three', explore the global influences, from Kraftwerk to Frankie Knuckles to The Electrifying Mojo, that shaped the sound’s genesis – and show how its embrace by the clubs and artists of Europe helped nurture techno into the worldwide cultural force it has become over 30 years later.

Venue: Jujus Bar & Stage, Brick Lane

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.
