Just checked, I am amazed there is no mention of the passing away of this guy on Sunday. He was the last of the music boffins and he has claims on so much of the tech that lit the fuse for the electronic music explosion. I guess his best known baby would be the TR-808 drum machine, ubiquitous in the 90s dance scene, but he also pretty much developed MIDI.
Anyway, in memorial of his genius, how about some choons that incorporate his Roland instruments. Here is one of the first tracks I heard that had the 808 on it. Didn’t know what it was at the time but I loved the sound.
