“Techno Summit, 1992” by Jason Bentley, URB, July 1992

Bentley, Jason. “Techno Summit, 1992.” URB, July 1992.

Jason Bentley covers the first annual “Techno Summit” at the 1992 New Music Seminar held at the Limelight. Panelists include Frankie Bones, Juan Atkins, Derrick May, Kevin Saunderson, Moneypenny, Ritchie Hawtin, Jeff Mills, and Lord Michael with other techno personalities in the audience. While the panelists tried to maintain a positive attitude about the present and future of techno, the audience quickly brought it back to the petty, divisional disputes about what is techno, what’s responsible for its success, and divisions between techno and house.
