The initial blueprint for techno developed during the mid-1980s in Belleville, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit by Juan Atkins, Kevin Saunderson and Derrick May (the so-called Belleville Three), all of whom attended school together at Belleville High with the addition of Eddie Fowlkes, Blake Baxter and James Pennington. By the close of the 1980s, the pioneers had recorded and released material under various guises: Atkins as Model 500, Flintstones, and Magic Juan; Fowlkes simply as Eddie “Flashin” Fowlkes; Saunderson as Reeses, Keynotes, and Kaos; with May as Mayday, R-Tyme, and Rhythim Is Rhythim. There were also a number of joint ventures, the most commercially successful of which was Kevin Saunderson’s group Inner City, which saw collaborations with Atkins, May, vocalist Paris Grey, and fellow DJs James Pennington and Arthur Forest.
Fast forward 27 years later to New Orleans, Louisiana where Miami transplant Javier Drada would set his foundations and inspirations to create what is now known as TECHNO Club - die tiefe familie (The Deep Family).
Techno Club is not an event, venue or radio station per say. In essence Techno Club is a collaboration of like minded individuals and anything that is done with the name Techno Club is a voice that represents that collaborative union. Techno Club would not exist without its members, their voice, their passion, their ideas and their hope for a better future.
