This tome is an immaculately designed history of dance music technology. It touches on every element of electronic music gear, and is a great book for anyone at all interested in the history of gear design.

DJ TechTools

Looking over parts of it, it looks like it's very well done, very well researched, and a very well-told story.

Roger Linn

Push Turn Move looks stunning and it’s chock full of interesting bits of information for any electronic musician. If the design of the instruments you play everyday (and of those you’ve always dreamed of) is something utterly fascinating for you, this is the next book you want to read.

AudioNewsRoom

Consider this the bible for electronic music.

Darren E Cowley, Managing director, Isotonik Studios.

I've always wished people could study these wonderful electronic instruments in detail ... Because, between the transistors, in the circuits, in the lines of code, there is this fascinating life. I'm happy that Kim brought it forward to us, so more people can study it.
