Techno is not EDM. Electronic Dance Music (EDM) is about “PLUR”, “Kandi”, and bros. EDM is about main stage festival music and radio music. Techno is a lot more minimalistic and a lot of simplicity. EMD is about colorful stuff and rainbows techno is not about rainbows. I made a Storify and a YouTube video to better explain this. Although Techno is under the literally Electronic Dance Music (EDM) it is not apart of the EDM culture. Techno is more groovy and dark and DJ sets tend to last from 3 hours to 6 hours or longer. Techno is a lot more dark but not in a creepy way just the music it self is dark and the environment as well but just because its dark doesn’t mean techno is only played at night. Theirs a lot of day techno parties as well. The outfits its usually all black on black as oppose to EDM that is a lot more colorful.
This is a video I made that really shows the difference between EDM and Techno enjoy 🙂
