Industrial techno is a subgenre of techno and industrial dance music that originated from United Kingdom in the 1990s.[1] Characteristically, it incorporates influences from the bleak, noisy sound and aesthetics of early industrial music acts, particularly Cabaret Voltaire and Throbbing Gristle.[2][1] American industrial music label Wax Trax! also had a profound influence over the genre's development.[3] The genre has seen a resurgence in the 2010s,[1][2] spearheaded by acts such as Blawan and Karenn. As a result, it has gained a significant fanbase from the post-dubstep audience.[2]

Other artists associated with industrial techno include Cut Hands,[1] Helena Hauff,[4] Forward Strategy Group,[1] Surgeon,[2] Michael Forshaw,[5] Jeff Mills and Mike Banks.[6] Perc Trax record label has been credited with the revival of the genre.[1]
