Techno is a word that has misused and abused. The worst offenders think anything with a 4/4 beat and a digital vibe is techno. Wrong. In the world of dance music, it's a separate, sub-genre, not an umbrella term for all things unfamiliar.

Here, then, is a lesson in proper, what's-happening-now techno, thanks to Berlin's DJ Emerson and Chris Liebing's CLR Podcast. This is relentless, metallic, shuffling techno that will rattle in your head like a small-caliber bullet. Now you know. Happy Friday.

The top score was awarded to crowd-surfing guitarist Kingslayer, the mother of a teenage son who also competed wearing little more than an American flag bathing suit. All photos by Gustavo Turner.
