Events

We don’t show you how techno is generally made. We help you to discover new, creative ways of making techno in order to develop your very own, original, easily recognizable techno music.        -Echoplex-

Your biggest challenge in techno making is to develop your true signature sound, widely recognizable and loved not because it fits within the standard and fashion of the current industry trend, but because it is real expression of your deepest dark / light corridors of your heart and mind. There is no one way to make techno. There is only your way.
