Drop Acid Not Bombs

in 1982 a simple bass synthesizer with built-in sequencer called the Roland TB-303 Bass Line was released to the public. initially marketed to guitarists as bass line accompaniment for solo practice only 10,000 units were manufactured. in the mid to late 80s a new wave of pioneering dance music producers discovered that by stressing and finessing the 303 a new world of groovy sound was opened up to them; resulting in the creation of acid house and the future of dance music. this is acid.

Triptychlish part 3

this is the final piece of the Triptychlish which sketches out my formative musical appreciation from year zero to year thirty. part 3 is a soundtrack to my nineties experience and the turn of the millennium (1993-2002), reflecting major events like meeting the one i love, raving, the creation of luv, music biz training and the first of my Ninja years. each track chosen throughout this triptych has a story behind it, a reminder of people, places and parties that have shaped my first 30 trips around our sun.
