Check out these 5 Detroit Techno classics from some of the pioneers of EDM

For those of you that are just getting into EDM and digging deeper into the history of genres like House, Techno, etc. here are some cuts that might interest you from some of the pioneers of Detroit Techno. 

Yes, the production quality sounds dated by today's standards but back in the late 80s and early 90s these guys were the cutting edge and were laying the foundation for a genre that would eventually change the world much like Jazz and Rock and Roll. 

Electronic Dance Music is now one of the most popular genres of music in the world and it all started with a bunch of city kids messing around with drum machines in Detroit, Chicago, and New York. 

Kind of cool. I hope you enjoy these cuts. 

Check out these classics from Derrick May, Kevin Saunderson, Juan Atkins, Carl Craig and Eddie Fowlkes.
