A few years ago I decided to pick up making electronic music again after about a 10 year hiatus. Now I'm looking for strategies to keep myself doing the work. [more inside]

My husband mixes dance music using Fruity Loops. I want to get him some CDs for Christmas for samples -- particularly stuff that sounds like Fatboy Slim. Help? [more inside]

I recently rediscovered the song "Man, It's So Loud In Here
" by They Might Be Giants, and the delicious juxtaposition of the New Order/Pet Shop Boys pastiche of the music and the sardonic treatment of club culture in the lyrics leads me to my question:
What are some other songs that sound like typical dance music but which have lyrics that are critical of dance music or club culture in general?

Does the Roland MC-505 produce TR-808 sounds using synthesis or samples? Is there anything that the TR-808 does that the MC-505 wont? [more inside]

Spurred on by what happened at Czechtek
, I'm trying to find more out about electronic musicians from the Czech Republic. The trouble is, I don't speak Czech.
Does anyone know of any great Czech producers, or of any web translation sites that reliably do Czech to English so I can do more research? [more inside]

In trance/techno music, where does the following pattern come from: A major bass hit on the first beat of the measure, then doubling to the first and third beat a couple measures later, then every beat, then eighth notes, sixteenth notes - usually accompanied by a melodic glissando climbing octaves or a vocal loop stuttering - until it releases (usually to a short pause) and then plunges into the full bass loop (and usually the chorus). Where'd this come from? What/who was the first song or DJ to use it?
