Techno IS Black, and Blackness is Revolutionary - with Black Techno Matters

We’ve handed the megaphone to Bernard Farley, creator of Black Techno Matters, an event and virtual community celebrating Blackness specifically in techno music. Most people are not aware that techno music has Black origins. This also means Black techno artists rarely get to see themselves represented in the genre. Bernard Farley is changing that.

You'll learn;

  • the origins of techno music and Black artists' contribution to it
  • why Blackness is revolutionary
  • how you can support Black artists in this genre and music generally
