Quality EDM research,
This review is from: Unlocking the Groove: Rhythm, Meter, and Musical Design in Electronic Dance Music (Profiles in Popular Music) (Paperback)
Butler's book, aside from a competent but somewhat perfunctory survey of the main tools of the EDM trade, is in general excellent. In particular, the consolidation of the work of Rahn and others, with the author's original insights into even, maximally even, 'diatonic' and syncopated figures, represents about the most useful and relevant EDM research out there. It is for people with a deep interest in the mechanics of music, but as relevant and interesting to those with little EDM experience, as to aficionados.
