Editorial Reviews

Review

"Unlocking the Groove is a remarkable achievement and an important contribution to the study of popular music and culture. Combining keen analysis, clear prose, and an unabashed love for electronic dance music, Mark Butler unlocks for us a rich musical world, one that has not until now received the attention it deserves. This book belongs in the hands of... anyone who wants to know how music sweeps us on to our feet."" ―Mark Katz, author of Capturing Sound: How Technology Has Changed Music



"This richly textured study provides brilliant insights into the rhythmic, metrical, and social dimensions of electronic dance music...."" ―Ellie M. Hisama, Columbia University

If you want to come to a deeper understanding of techno and the world of electronic music, this is the book. Butler is a pioneer in an area of music that the academic world is just beginning to explore and understand.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
if you are a computer music producer this aint a book for u. only if you can read notations you can follow this book...

examples that i tought i will learn something from them, are not written and displayed in popular piano roll/step sequencer view like in Michael Hewitt's book. so if your are using softwares like fl studio ableton etc, and you want to expand your knowledge on making grooves, this might get tricky.
another star down for this book is because of the writer's constantly playing "journalism", writing about unnecesery information.

somehow i gave up from reading books this kind subject...

but, if you can read notation and want to read about stuff that not relate to MAKING music , this book is for you.
i want to point out that book is all about groove, but NOT about MAKING it all the time, sometimes it goes too far, too philosophicaly.
