Techno music can be classified according to the spike of the beat and the drop of the bass in rhythmic chaos. The wide variation of tones is playful and catchy. Listen to some of our techno beats and hits in this week’s installment of Put Your Headphones on Fridays.
The usual techno songs have this distinct pop of synths, electronic mixes and beats to make you just bob your head to the song. This week’s PYHOF playlist brings you that and more with tunes that are ringing with the right kind of techno vibe but with the emotions to match.
Telemiscommunications by deadmau5 and Imogen Heap is a serenade to breaking lines of communication between people. It’s synth-tinged vocals and simple and neat beat carefully accompanies the lyrics but reinforces the image at the same time. The music video for the song is eerily fun and connects with people in various ways. Breathe Carolina’s take on With or Without You by U2 reinvigorates the already lively song even with a gradually increasing tempo and auto-tune tinges.
Don’t let the upbeat tempo of the songs fool you, tune your ears to the melody and lyrics to really let the synthesizers and electronic mixes get to you.
Give the playlist a listen and let us know other techno songs that are now buzzing in your ears. You’ll thank your headphones later.
