You may have seen our earlier posts about various aspects of Middle-Eastern or other non-Western music and how they might be of interest to musicians who want to bring some new rhythms, tunings or melodic ideas into Western music, particularly electronica:

Arabian rhythms for electronic dance music

Central Asian drum rhythms for drum programmers

    I found this blog entry:

    It explores some ideas about keeping the interest and excitement in programmed drum lines. Worth a read.
