“In the early ‘80s dance music as we know it didn’t exist. Of course, there had been disco and some uptempo soul records would definitely get you moving, but the ‘lights-out, heads-down’ vibe of house and techno was nowhere to be seen or heard. This was especially true in Osaka, Japan, where a team of engineers at Roland Corporation began working on the successor to the TR-808, unaware of the impact it would have on electronic music and culture. - Roland
The TR-909 needs little introduction, having powered more tracks and live performances than any other drum machine on the market.
Those punchy analog hits, sharp hats and cymbals formed the blueprint for electronic artists looking to explore new sonic territory, inevitably shaping House and Techno into what it is today.
