The Evolution of Electronic Dance Music, Paperback Book

The Evolution of Electronic Dance Music Paperback

Edited by Peter Kirn

Part of the Keyboard Presents series


From roots in '70s New York disco and '80s Detroit techno to today's international, mainstream explosion of such genres as house, trance, and dubstep, electronic dance music has reshaped the popular musical landscape.

This book digs deep through the archives of "Keyboard" magazine to unearth the insider history of the art and technology of the EDM movement, written as it happened.

We hear from the artists who defined the genre (Jean Michel Jarre, Depeche Mode, Deadmau5, BT, Kraftwerk, and more).

Revisit the most significant synths, beatboxes, and musical tools that made the music possible, through the eyes of those who first played them.

Learn the history, then the expert techniques behind the music, so you can apply the same craft to your own music and mixes.
