Dan Sicko’s “Techno Rebels” book about to be repressed

One of my all time favorite Detroit Techno history documents becomes available again. Order while you can!

Dan Sicko’s original 1999 edition of Techno Rebels is one of techno’s defining documents, a social and critical history of an oft-misunderstood genre with worldwide relevance. This 2010 edition of Sicko’s techno tell-all focuses more deeply on Detroit as an incubator for the music’s creative heroes and biggest proponents—including, full disclosure, a nice spotlight on Ghostly International—and fills in the history up to the present day’s kaleidoscope of styles.
