American Techno Authority

American techno creativity arises from the ashes of fried ironworx. Evidence: Detroit. See also -> Chattanooga, TN. The place is going through a rebirth. Everywhere steel and water and light in unexpected forms. The mountains of Tennessee are green and slight compared to the dry and grand Rockies in my backyard. The coolness of this limestone wet place was a comfort from the searing Martian wind of the Great Basin. It is easy to see why this whole Appalachian paradise, Nashville included, is a Mecca of music. Mountains are inspiration. Industrial meltdown is a creative Phoenix.

Here's some North American Techno and Spanish Electronix.
