Akai Pro’s MPC Renaissance
I may not be at liberty to say any more than stating the obvious so, for now, all I’ll say is…
- Sean C. (aka Citizen Cane) for reaching out & “recruiting me”.
- Jonathan Hayes & Dan Gill for ALL of your help, conversations & generosity.
- Jack O’Donnell for seeing the vision & knowing exactly which steps to take to see it through & make it happen. You are the leader!
- Roger Linn for creating my buddy Raw Dawg… I’ll forever be grateful.
- Q-Tip… One of my heroes ’til this day & beyond. I wouldn’t even be in the game or know how to do shit had it not been for Peoples’ Instinctive Travels & The Paths of Rhythm. Thanks for that one Chief. With every mere mention of this album forces me to revisit it SO… *opens iTunes*
- Oh & Shannon n’ Matt in shipping.
Post Script: And “yes”… That IS yours truly posing with the one & only Raw Dawg @ 1:05. Your eyes do not deceive you. So as more is revealed about this great piece of life changing equipment & the steps involved in creating it, I shall post more (insider’s) detail if I’m allowed to.
