Discussion

Again & again & again: loops and repetition in electronic dance music

With Henrik Schwarz, Hillegonda Rietveld, King Britt and Recloose in conversation with Tony Nwachukwu. Presented by CDR.

Repetition and loop-based phrases, sections, and hooks are at the heart of music composition and production. From monotony to familiarity, what else do we hear? Which elements do we focus on and why? Reflecting upon this, each member of our panel will select and discuss a track from their personal record collection that shaped their individual take on continuous cyclical motifs. What’s yours?
