First occurrence:
The date for World Techno Day was chosen
as it was the birthdate of Juan Atkins,

who is widely credited with being the
originator of the term β€œtechno musicβ€œ.
World Techno Day was created by the Belleville Three, who were then composed of Juan Atkins,Β Derrick May and Kevin Saunderson who attended high school together inΒ Belleville, Michigan.

Techno was thought to be a new genre in the late 1980ies because rave parties began to infiltrate the mainstream. But genres of music or pop culture usually found their origines in underground movements or obscurity long before they become popular or even mainstream.
This was also true for techno music as it had already been simmering in a safe underground in the very early 1980ies, where experimenting with progressive synthesizer music genres allowed it to grow and eventually bloom.
