Why I Love Techno

I’m a late adopter in my love of Techno. Like many people my earliest memories of music came from my parents. I remember thinking my Dad had terrible taste in music with his Elvis records, 50s Rock n Roll and then the first CD he ever bought being Elton John. How the old always make […]
