It will help somebody starting out from the most basic levels all the way to advanced producers, musicians, and programmers.

Electronic Dance Music Grooves teaches you more than mapping out beats and grooves; it will hopefully become a stepping-stone to a new way of thinking and creating. The main purpose behind Electronic Dance Music Grooves is to introduce new styles of music and grooves that you have possibly never played, programmed, or even heard of before, along with tips and tricks to create something new for yourself.

Throughout the book, you will easily see how powerful and important a drum groove is to music styleidentity. Understanding what creates a specific genre’s groove, from the rhythm and dynamics to the choices of individual sounds, plays a huge role in identifying a tune’s style and genre. As there are currently thousands of electronic music subgenres, rather than covering each and every style there is, we’ll cover the main foundational styles of Electronic Dance Music, which have stemmed to create new styles, subgenres, and categories. With the grooves learned throughout this book, you will gain the necessary understanding, techniques, and knowledge to create the rhythmic structure and patterns for any of your favorite electronic music styles.
