​TEKNOTRIBE: The South African techno and Psy Trance juggernaut
The Electronic Dance Music (EDM) landscape is constantly writhing with evolution. Genres often split through binary fission into two distinct sub-genres. Vibrant sub-cultures attach themselves to these genres and the whole scene is constantly stimulated by this healthy dynamism. Some genres explode and go mainstream; others fizzle out and die rather sad, pathetic deaths. But some genres, like Castle Lager, stand the test of time.
One of these genres is techno. And one of the biggest proponents of techno is Teknotribe!

It's a name synonymous with the most fundamental underground scene in Johannesburg and, lately, is growing on a national scale. Brewed and distilled over the years, it is more than just a name nailed to a night out. Teknotribe is an experience. It's a sensory overload that will leave you breathless and enchanted. This doesn't come about through some fluke. It isn't just pure luck that makes any Teknotribe production a mind-blowing success. Teknotribe, and the people behind it, literally live and breathe techno. Their passion for techno seeps from their pores and is more than palpable. This is the magic ingredient to any successful production.

For many years now, Teknotribe has been blazing a vapour trail of distinctive events that have left the Techno and Psy Trance connoisseur both educated and entertained. More importantly, Teknotribe has created a fanatical niche that has slavered over some of the most influential international DJs the planet has to offer and they continue to bring the world’s best to our shores. Teknotribe also initiated joining forces with the Psy Trance scene way back in 2003, bringing about Techno vs. Trance and now have a sub label called {psy.ology}. This affiliation with congruent genres is becoming a trend in the EDM scene as people refuse to be pigeon-holed. Commonly, the pillars include psy-trance, techno, minimal tech and Drum and Bass. Teknotribe, once again, pioneered this symbiotic party concept with the launch of Twilight festival in 2011, joining forces with Science Frikshun to form Underground Sound and Revolution NYE festival, joining forces with Mansion records in 2010 amalgamating the JHB underground scene for one massive New Year’s Festival.

Teknotribe has always been at the bleeding edge of innovation and they are thus best prepared for change and, in fact, are engineering that change with their pioneering outlook. This keeps Teknotribe at the forefront of the EDM scene, constantly adapting, evolving and assimilating, to bring you – the discerning EDM fanatic – the very best the techno and psytrance the world has to offer.
