Techno is a form of dance music that originally comes from
Detroit, Michigan in the 1980s, making it a relatively new music
genre - in fact, the first use of the word techno, used to describe
a genre of music was recorded in 1988, making this probably one of
the newest music genres around today. Nowadays there are many
different sub-genres of techno, although Detroit techno is still
considered to be the best and truest type of techno music. If
you're a big fan of dance and house music you'll love techno, so if
you're looking for something different to listen to this Christmas
or if you're sick of the same old pop Christmas songs, one of the
techno Christmas numbers on our list below may be for you.
1) DefconOne - Jingle Bells
This brilliant festive number from internet techno artist
DefconOne is a fabulous cover of the classic Christmas carol Jingle
Bells. The melody remains the same, but it's danced up with a loud
drum beat and a clubby backing track. Brilliant dancing music, this
should be number one on your disco Christmas playlist.
2) DJ Dobo - We Wish You A Merry Christmas
DJ Dobo is another techno artist who releases plenty of music
onto the internet for all to enjoy and this festive number is no
exception - it's loud, fast, and very, very Christmassy. This
definitely isn't trance techno or techno to chill out to - it's
techno to dance to!
3) Basshunter - Jingle Bells
We know this is only the third song on our list and it's another
remix of Jingle Bells, but Jingle Bells is obviously a very popular
techno choice! Basshunter's lovely vocals shine in this song over
the top of a dancey backing track, with instrumental interludes so
you can really get into the music.
4) Bloodyhatchmankilla - Christmas Techno
This original techno festive tune from YouTube techno artist
bloodyhatchmankilla is a remix of a Christmas tune by Shin Chul, a
South-Korean pop artist credited with bringing a range of new music
styles to Korea. Another perfect dancing song.
5) Mr. Trance - DisneyTechno
This is a must-listen for any fans of Disney films and for any
fans of techno - although you may not initially think the two
styles go together, they totally do - so give this song a try when
you're decorating your house ready for Christmas.
6) DJ Hell Rider - Last Christmas
Another Youtube techno producer is up at 6th on our list with a
dance remix of Wham! classic Last Christmas. If you just want to
lose yourself in the music this Christmas, this is a great
7) Dave Miller - Silent Night, Disco Night!
If you're looking for something totally different this year,
this offering by Dave Miller is an excellent song to try. Taken
from his Christmas album, which is filled with dance-floor fillers,
none of the songs from this album are particularly festive in the
way that you might think, but they're Christmassy in that they will
get the whole family up and dancing.
8) DJ Jomel - Sibugay Remix
This new Christmas tune by techno artist DJ Jomel is a brilliant
remix of Christmas in Our Hearts by Jose Mare Chan. Another
dance-floor filler, you should definitely listen to this if you
want some cheery Christmas music this year.
9) DJ Traxxx4 - Perfect Christmas
This is a totally unique Christmas techno number by DJ Traxxx4
known for his unique and original remixes. This song is more
laidback than most of the others on our list, making it a great
track to play when you want to chill out away from all of the
hustle and bustle of the holidays.
10) DJ OrangePeel - A Techno Christmas
This super-charged techno remix is a great medley of a number of
classic Christmas songs, all mixed and made into a dance number fit
for any party. Well worth a listen or two!
