Minimal techno is a line of electronic music and a special subtitling of Techno Music, not far from Micro House and Techno Glitch. It may be characterized by melodic sounds, which should bring the auditor to a mental journey, or by "minimal" electronic sounds that lead to the total absence of melody. In both cases, even being an electronic genre based on "loops" (repetitions of a certain number of beats - usually 2 or 4 - for a certain number of times - usually a verse is made up of 32 beats -), the genre tends to become almost "hypnotic" in order to induce the listener to a so-called "trip". The most commonly used time is 4/4, with a B.P.M. from 124 to 128.

The almost obsessing repetition of the verses and the lack of variations justifies the "minimal" term associated with this musical genre.

It is a genre based on sound experimentation; Electronic drum rhythms (often from the Drum Machine Roland TR-808 and TR-909) are accompanied by repetitive bass lines. Synthesizers are used to fill the sound spectrum or to characterize song arrangement, hi-hats, and rides to develop, enrich and cure mid-high frequencies. Also used is the white noise in order to fill the mix.
