Exploring: Electronic Music is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 13 .
Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Great overview Its a nice overview over different styles and their history and not an in depth tutorial on sound design etc. But for what it is its great! I liked the authors style of presentation and his variations on the base song sounded amazing. Not the usual 0815 tutorial songs. Recommended.

Rated 1.0 out of 5 by from Very Briefed The Author is very knowledgeable..Yet he forgets that this is a tutorial video.. all his knowledge is rushed and seems to be just showing what he can do..not how is he is doing it..Learning is a process.. What he calls tedious is what the learner needs

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Great Insight into different genres great seeing how different styles and genres can influence a single musical idea

Rated 3.0 out of 5 by from A bit lightweight and generic It's always useful to see how someone layers up a track, and this has some great sound design tips, but I don't think it goes any further than that. The 'Exploring' part of this never really goes that deep, and I personally didn't learn anything new about the different genres. Good as a beginners introduction to different styles maybe, but certainly not essential.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Good Overview Good overview of electronic music styles. I liked that it didn't waste time covering recording and production basics like eq, compression nor did it go into sound design to any great depth. These topics are covered in great detail in other series. As someone with experience using hardware synths from back in the day, I learned the nuances of techno, trance, trap, house, edm and the like so I can better understand what you crazy kids are listening to today in a more informed way. Now get off my lawn!
