In our latest YouTube video, we take you through what 7th Sus 13 (add 9) chords are, how to use them and how to apply them to dance music.

Our Passing Notes has been a popular series on Attack. Over the nine years we’ve published we’ve explored all aspects of music theory in dance music. From Aphex Twin to Todd Terje, no stone has been left unturned.

During the course of 2021, we’ve turned our attention to making the Passing Notes accessible via our new YouTube channel. Our latest video, covering SUS 13 ‘Groove Chords’ is out now and takes you deeper into dance music chord theory.

It’s a good question and asked regularly: do I need to know chord theory to become a better producer? There’s no easy way to answer this but in short ‘no’. However, it can really help with obtaining that ‘unique sound’ so it’s worth knowing a bit, even if it’s a little daunting at first.
