Soundtrack From the Motion Picture Modulations

type
  • Music

This all-too-brief history of electronic dance music in the Soundtrack From the Motion Picture Modulations suffers from lack of space. Yet it maps techno’s early arc superbly, from Donna Summer’s Teutonic ”I Feel Love” to milestones by Derrick May, Jesse Saunders, and Juan Atkins. Later developments like jungle get sketchier treatment. But in dance music’s supremely disposable world, this may be the most illuminating overview to date. B+
