As those secretive folk over at Roland HQ potentially prepare something special for anyone whose dreamt of owning the three iconic pieces of kit in electronic music history, all week we’re looking back at the trail of music they left behind. Yesterday we took a look at the 808 and its electro beginnings, but today’s the turn of the 909 whose kicks, hats and snares will be instantly recognisable to anyone who’s been to a club in the past 25 years.
