Happy Platypus

So, I’ve become obsessed with this series of little groove boxes by Korg, called Volca, and have been setting up a little low budget techno music rig. It’s been amazing fun.

I recorded this little jam last week. It’s got sort of a Detroit vibe going on, I think… anyway, I’m really happy with the sound and totally digging my new obsession. 🙂

Panasonic is bringing back the SL-1200

As for why Panasonic is bringing back the 1200 now, after a six-year hiatus, the company says it’s a direct response to the recent growth in vinyl sales.

I still have my ollllld 1200’s. I bought them second (third?) hand 15 years ago and they looked like they were atleast 15 years old when I bought them. Super awesome, all around.
