Techno logic When you write regularly about music technology, as we do here at FM, there’s sometimes a risk that you can end up getting so worked up about new gear and technology that you lose sight of the real ‘point’ of all this stuff – the music itself. Sure, a new synth plugin or modular rig can be exciting in its own right, but unless it inspires creativity, then surely it’s nothing but an expensive toy?

This issue’s cover feature is all about drawing a connection between those two sides of what we do – tracing the roots of one of the most important genres in electronic music, and seeing how its been shaped by gear, technology and multiple generations of ever-more adventurous musicians and producers.

Si Truss, Editor-In-Chief
