Masterklass #5: Roland x0x Megamix by Moonlight Matters

Red Bull Elektropedia Masterklass is not just another random mixtape series. Every episode tells the story of a love affair between a DJ and a certain genre, era, label or any kind of subject matter interesting enough to be turned into a proper mixtape. We select the DJs and musicians based on their knowledge of (and enthusiasm for) music - giving them absolute freedom to show off their insights.

101/202/303/505/606/707/808/909... What do these numbers have in common? All these figures have been united in the fact that the musical gear manufacturer Roland has had a true hot streak with their musical machines in the XOX series. From the hard hitting bass drums of the 909 to the cutting acid leads of the 303, from the fat analog wall shaking bass of the 101 to the unique thumping 808 snare, since decades ago all these machines have contributed in creating the contemporary sound of dance music as we know it.

With these XOX's dominating various scenes in electronic music through the years, Moonlight Matters has chosen to select a few early house jams containing any of these machines...Think big old school kicks, hypnotising acid riffs, highly efficient bass lines and mesmerising vocals. Time to jack !!!
