LONDON, UK -- Creative Artist Scaramanga Silk has set a new world record for the Slowest Techno Track when his single 'Sacrifice' measured 91bpm.

The record was broken at Silk Studios. The World's Slowest Techno Track was measured using a software plug-in BPM (Beats Per Minute) counter.
The Slowest Techno Track in The World record was hosted by niche electronic music website SlowTechno.com. Techno music normally ranges between 130bpm - 160bpm.
Prior to this record, the slowest known techno track was by the French duo Daft Punk. Their track 'Steam Machine' is 92bpm so Scaramanga Silk only narrowly managed to pip them to the crown (by a single BPM).
The record was set by using specialist music software to determine the BPM of the track. 'Sacrifice' was played in Logic Pro from start to finish whilst a plug-in BPM Counter monitored the BPM throughout. With no fluctuations in the BPM, the record was set at an astonishingly slow 91bpm. Such a BPM is more commonly associated with hip-hop and downtempo music.
Scaramanga Silk was delighted with the achievement stating 'The record was always in reach. Creating such a track was a real challenge as it is not easy to produce such slow techno music.'
Techno is known for its fast tempo and futuristic visions but there are other sides to this influential and vital genre. Certain producers have experimented with the BPM (Beats Per Minute) rates to bring about deeper, funkier and melodic techno at a slower pace.
