"Techno Rebels: The Renegades of Electronic Funk" by Dan Sicko
Author Dan Sicko demystifies techno's characteristics, influences, origins, and argued that although techno enjoyed its most widespread popularity in Europe, its birthplace and most important incubator was Detroit. In this revised and updated edition, Sicko expands Detroit's role in the birth of techno and take s readers on an insider's tour of techno's past, present, and future in an enjoyable account filled with firsthand anecdotes, interviews, and artist profiles.
Ultimately, Sicko argues that techno is rooted in the "collective dreaming" of the City of Detroit - as if its originators wanted to preserve what was great about the city - its machines and its deep soul roots. Techno Rebels gives a thorough picture of the music itself and the trailblazing musicians behind it and is a must-read for all fans of techno, popular music, and contemporary culture.
