Re: A very biased and personal list of Old School tunes

Hard not to be nostalgic about it!

What's interesting is going back to the really early and house inspired tracks. It seems that a lot of attention went into capturing the more organic breakbeats emanating from the hip hop roots and prevalent in mid 80s (ware)house. This organic drum composition by folks that were steeped in a music culture that revered (and sampled) clever breaks from 60s and 70s soul is something of a lost art. Without that, it seems doubtful that with its sonic limitations the 808 would have been able to have such an impact.

Techno starts with a capital 'T', as in TB-303 and TR-808.
