QUICK MUSIC HISTORY to understand the difference between electro and techno:
Techno is a form of electronic dance music that was developed in Detroit, during the 1970s. The initial take on techno arose from the melding of various African American styles such as Chicago house, funk, electro, and electric jazz with Eurocentric synthesizer-based music. Techno, similar to disco, was dance music with a very fast “four-on-the-floor” tempo.

The earlier form of Electro Funk developed sometime in the 1970's in most likely New York. It is a late version of funk music making heavy use of synthesizers and effects. It honestly has more directly in common with hip hop than dance music, but is probably the earliest form of North American synthesizer music and is a "father" of both dance and hip hop as we know them now. In contrast that with Technos 4/4 beat - Electro instead it has a breakbeat or a broken beat, which is inconsistent sounding.

(African-American influences are so fundamental to American music that there would be no American music without them. Their work songs, dance tunes, and religious music—and the syncopated, swung, remixed, rocked, and rapped music of their descendants—would become the lingua franca of American music, eventually influencing all racial and ethnic backgrounds across border. #BLACKLIVESMATTER)
