The TR-9 and TR-3 are here! Roland have taken two of the most influential instruments in electronic music, the TR- 909 and TB-303, and re-engineered them for the 21st century. To celebrate we have decided to list 10 of our favorite classic tunes made using at least one, if not, both of these instruments.
1. TB- 303: Box Energy - DJ Pierre
One of the pioneers of Acid house showing us how its done with a 303!
2. TR-909: Inner City - Big Fun
Inner City aka Kevin Saunderson & Paris Grey released Big Fun in 1988 with a solid 909 drum patternas its foundation. Its maadness that you still here this played in the clubs nearly 30 years later often by DJ's who were so young at !
3. TR-303: Mr Fingers - Can You Feel It
Often regarded as the first ever Deep House track 'Can You Feel It' established the 909 as the go to drum machine in Dance Music.
4. TR-909: Aphex Twin - Heliosphan
Aphex twin needs no introduction and this tune from his Debut album is a 909 monster.
5. TR-909: Technotronic - Pump Up the Jam
If there is tune that could be credited with bringing the sound of the 909 to the extended masses, it may well be this. As big today as it was in 1990. Pump it up!
