House techno music on the radio

House techno is a subgenre of electronic dance music that combines elements of house and techno. This genre emerged in the late 1980s and early 1990s, primarily in the Chicago and Detroit music scenes. It is characterized by its use of drum machines, synthesizers, and samples, as well as its repetitive rhythms and basslines.

Some of the most popular artists in the house techno genre include Derrick May, Carl Craig, Juan Atkins, Kevin Saunderson, and Richie Hawtin. These artists are often referred to as the "Belleville Three," named after the high school they all attended in Detroit, Michigan.

Derrick May is often credited with creating the "transmat" sound, which became a defining characteristic of the house techno genre. Carl Craig is known for his experimentation with different styles and for founding the record label Planet E Communications. Juan Atkins is considered one of the pioneers of techno music, and his work has been influential in the development of the genre. Kevin Saunderson is known for his work as part of the group Inner City, which had several chart-topping hits in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Richie Hawtin, also known as Plastikman, is known for his minimal techno style and his work with the record label Plus 8.

There are several radio stations that focus on the house techno genre. One example is DI FM's Techno channel, which features a mix of classic and contemporary techno tracks. Another is TechnoBase FM, which is based in Germany and features a mix of techno and hardstyle music. Additionally, BBC Radio 1's Essential Mix often features house techno DJs and producers as guest mixers.
