This special 20 page book filled with original advertising, technical specs and tons of photos will delight collectors and music fans alike. Included are two flexi-discs, one clear and one orange, featuring the sounds of the TR-909, narrated by the great Schoolly D, with cuts by DJ 7L. Also included are instrumental remakes of Schoolly D’s hits ‘P.S.K.’ and ‘Gucci Time’, created with the 909 pictured on the cover. Created by Japanese engineer Tadoa Kikumoto in 1984, the TR-909 is the quintessential drum machine of house and techno music. Its built-in 16 step sequencer would go on to revolutionize the way dance music was to be produced, though this was not planned at it’s inception.
