Detroit Techno - evolution (help - college project)


Active Member
Im looking for some help about detroit techno for a friend for a collage course,just seeing if any of oyu guys/girls can help,thanx.....

I'm looking for a rough starting point for listening to techno, ranging from its creation to the modern day. I know of Derrick May, Kevin Saunderson and Juan Atkins but can't seem to find much material due to the amount of names they record under, respectively. I'd like to know the best albums to look into in terms of the musics and the progression of the genre.

thanx again.
