Point Blank has published the 2nd part of its Techno Style Guide, offering a look into building a Techno track in Ableton Live.

Our Style Guide videos have proven to be one of our most popular series ever! Hosted by James Wiltshire, we explore the stories, the gear and the techniques that go into electronic music’s most popular genres. We started off with one of the founding pillars of dance music: house, and now it’s the turn of techno. Part one say James explain how techno found its feet in Detroit as well as embarking on a sound design exercise.

In part two, James puts those ideas into practice, building up a techno track in Ableton Live as well as recording some bespoke samples in some urban Brighton locations. You can watch it above and as always, make sure you subscribe to our YouTube channel for more tutorials and live events. Download James’s Ableton Project and WAV stems here.
