A coordinated mix of electric sounds that some cultists refer to as music. Sometimes believed to be an updated version of disco. Characterized by a drumbeat that always puts a bass hit on the downbeat, an open hi-hat hit on the upbeat and closed on the downbeat, and a mm setting of c 150. In addition, there is always a complete lack of musical instruments, as all sounds are simulated on a computer. Most often listened to by a male demographic between ages 12 and 25, nearly all of which is uneducated in music and incapable of playing an instrument. Synonym: signal indicator Antonym: music

Often, a hi-hat hit on the upbeat and closed on the downbeat accompanies the persistent bass drum hits. In addition, there is always a complete lack of musical instruments, as all sounds are simulated on a computer. Most often listened to by a male demographic between ages 12 and 25, teh vast majority of which is uneducated in music and incapable of playing an instrument. Synonyms include "signal indicator" and "alarm clock," while antonyms include "music."
If copying music is illegal, techno is the worst rash of crime in the recording industry.
