  Some amazing space travel right there eh? This is why I love electronic music so much. You can create any damn sound you want. No limits. 
  This amazing artist has only released one album and several other records. All of his tunes share this deep ambient vibe. Definitely something to chill with. 
  And the video was created to show the relative sizes of the universe. The interesting thing is, not only we are infinitely small, but we are also  infinitely large...

The acid machine


Roland TB-303
The father of acid




  This post is about a legendary piece of equipment, something that defined a whole wave of electronic music. 
  Originally, this little box was designed to help guitarists with their practice. However, little did they know, that this wont be the reason why this synthesizers price has pretty much gone up five times since it's release. Yep, a synthesizer from 1980's that would cost around 400$ is now worth around 2000$.  
  What has made it so popular? This sound...


  Yes, this screeching sound produced by over driving the synthesizer. This item is so loved by electronic music enthusiasts that it is even listed in "The Guardian" one of the 50 most important events in electronic music!
  The interesting fact is, that even thought it did help a lot of bands with the bass line, it got popular for actually using it the wrong way, over driving the box, while playing repetitive patterns. 
  With the help of this tool, acid house emerged in the 1980's. After that, it has spread to many other styles of electronic music and even in to the pop culture(Madonna's "Ray of light", Prodigy's "Smack my bitch up" ) . It has become a "hip" thing to have, but as there were only about 10 000 unit's available, Roland released another synthesizer labelled MC-303. But even this release did not satisfy the crowd of musicians craving for acid. Therefore, many clones emerged, seeking to get a slice of the popularity that the TB-303 created.
  A unforgettable piece of equipment that is still loved today. Have some acid children!

    Damn, it seems that electronic music is inside the French blood... I bet electronic music will be called a national treasure in France in the 22nd century. 
  The video it self is brilliant.The raw energy, the style! I can confidently say that I have found myself a new favorite.
