Lives for gear
My favorite producer impressed me when I saw that he had a Poly 800 in his studio-real nice warm, organic sounds from it and the DW Korgs.
Anyone interested in this era, which IMO was the beginning of today's mainstream dance musics, should watch two multi-part documentaries available on the tube-Maestro, about the Paradise Garage, and "the history of house", made by the BBC. Most don't realize that the "godfather of house" in Chicago was a transplanted NYer. And/or read "Last Night a DJ Saved My Life".
