”Overall, for those getting into dance music, this book lets you hit the ground running with actual files you can use in a wide cross-section of styles. I could also see this information as being useful for those doing soundtracks if they’re not as familiar with certain styles, yet need to create music using, for example, Dance Hall of Dubstep beats. For less than the cost of a 12-pack of Red Bull at Walmart, you’ll have something with much greater staying power.” –Harmony Central
