Point Blank and F9 Audio founder and Freemasons member James Wiltshire has just released a two-part video series exploring the history of house music and the pivotal role played by the Roland TR-909 at the inception of the genre.
In the videos, Wiltshire highlights the key players that were responsible for creating those early house records, as well as what exactly went into the formation of house and how the studios at the time grew alongside this new sound. In the videos, the role of the Roland TR-909 is underscored heavily both with a little history as well as practical use when Wiltshire uses samples from the hardware to create a classic house track in Ableton.
