TB-303: The cult (thanks to Oliver Gili) –
Taken from the Rubberduck 303 Website
the Roland 303, first used in the mid 1980s, has become to the rave generation what the electric guitar was to the Hippies: more than just an instrument, a cultural artifact destined for its own place in history.
its psychedelic properties were discovered by chance in 1985/1986, although exact dates are hard to pin down. chicago was rocking to the stripped down disco and deep funk of chicago house. out of this scene, a then little known group of people (Phuture, comprising DJ Pierre, Spanky and Herbert J), happened upon the psychedelic modulation of the bass produced by the 303, and in 1986 when the record „Acid Trax“ was released, a new music was born: Acid House.
the new sound was soon picked up by a small number of British DJs in ibiza, who brought it back to Britain. they started playing it at club nights like „Shoom“, „The Trip“, „Spectrum“, and „Nude“, which bore more resemblance to primitive ecstatic religious ceremonies than the pretentious elitist spectacle that dominated british clubs in the eighties.
much to the horror of the authorities, britain was soon grooving to the new acid sound, in clubs, warehouses, and fields. a whole new generation turned on, and tuned in.
music would never be the same again.
in 1995, the TB-303 has become one the top gears used in electronic music studios. due to the high want, used silver boxes were traded for $1000 US and more ! several synthesizer manufacturers tried to make money selling TB-303 clones, but none of them ever reached the status of the original.
The Event will be recorded and later be partly broadcasted on Radio X Das Frankfurter werbefreie Stadtradio FM 91,8 – Kabel 99,85 DAB+ (Kanal 11C) oder Livestream http://www.radiox.de
