Mastering

Do you have any resources on learning mastering different genres?

I am doing a dance piece and boy is mastering EDM a whole another topic compared to hybrid / symphonic stuff!

Perhaps not genre specific - but mastering in general - John Paul Braddock - Mastering the Cube'

http://www.hitfoundry.com/issue_26/scp_mast.htm

And of course the 'go to' around these parts - Bob Katz - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=evJo5_qt6mY

These resources - and mastering itself IMO - are largely genre agnostic - but interested to hear about what you think makes EDM different - other than bringing out bass and kick pumping.

To me the underlying techniques of mastering should be the same no matter what the genre, and you are just making tweaks to customise those techniques to the genre.
