Schranz


Schranz is a European (especially German) variant of hard style techno music. It is typically played at around 150–170[citation needed] beats per minute (BPM) but can also be slower. Schranz is based on massive kick drums, driving percussion, and distorted, looping synthesizer noises. The term emerged in 1994 when Frankfurt-based DJ Chris Liebing described a certain type of techno while searching for records at the now closed "Boy Records" store. Read more on Last.fm

Schranz is based on massive kick drums, driving percussion, and distorted, looping synthesizer noises. The term emerged in 1994 when Frankfurt-based DJ Chris Liebing described a certain type of techno while searching for records at the now closed "Boy Records" store. The next time he visited the shop, the owner had a selection of harder techno records filed under Schranz.

"For me personally, since that day in 1994, Schranz is a description for various dark and distorted sounds in techno", Liebing said in 2002. To this day, speculation remains about the meaning of the word Schranz within the techno scene. Many believe it to simply imitate the sound of a crunchy low fidelity (lo-fi) percussion loop. For example, schranzen means to eat loudly and voraciously in Dutch slang and it is also a surname found predominantly in Austria. Meaningful speculations indicate that it was meant as a contraction of the two German nouns Schrei (scream) and Tanz (dance) Read more on Last.fm.
