The most accurate post I've seen so far is
"An ETERNALLY mislabeled genre of music which has nothing to do with Moby, Tiesto, Chemical Brothers, or Fatboy Slim. Techno is indeed a broad sub-genre of electronic dance music (or EDM, what many people use "techno" inproperly as a blanket term for) which fulfills these following constituents:
1. It is in some form minimalist, whether in composition or in sequencing.
2. It is created for the sole purpose of making people dance.
3. It is constructed in a manner to allow DJs to quickly and expertly mix and layer 2 or more of these compositions simultaneously.
Due to it's building-block nature, true techno is closer to hip-hop than many of the genres (such as trance and breakbeat) which it is erroneously associated with. "
Some well known techno DJ's would be Chris liebing, Jeff Mills, and Dj Rush
and trance has nothing to do with techno, techno is a very very very very very very very very unground subgenre of music
"azns" dont listen to "techno" if someone tells you something like alice deejay - better off alone is techno, they are stupid
techno is its own subgenre of electronica just like house, progressive house, trance, hard trance, progressive trance, breaks (breakbeat), prog breaks, acid house, and much much much more
