By M. Austin on April 18, 2012
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This collection of Keyboard & Remix magazine articles from the last couple decades is, as it's title states, an overview of the evolution of dance music, specifically the artist's production methods. Musicians spill the beans on their favorite gear, and while the lists of outboard effects and software patches will be of interest to producers and aspiring musicians, the average electronic music fan may find it boring. This is certainly a technical look at music making, and considering it's an anthology of separate magazine articles, shouldn't be viewed as a seamless cultural history. Of particular note are interviews with the usually reticent Aphex Twin (ca. Richard D. James album, just as he moved to computer-based production) and Autechre (who get as in depth about their favorite gear & production methods as they probably ever will)
