  1. Really nice. Those Boutique synths do sound lovely.

    I don’t know if I’d call this a live jam though – I noticed a couple of edits in which the keyboard players hand is suddenly Ina different place.

  2. Probably a candidate for the most boring song on Roland Boutique. I had a jam with my metronome. It was so such a great performance compared to this one, i should have recorded it to post on YT. Especially the metronome was rocking tight as hell and sounded like a strange sonic experiment. 😉

  3. Sorry if these is another negative comment but the video shows a lot of knobs manipulation but the audio is boring, almost just mute, unmute tracks. If something additional or important happened during that jam and I had not noticed please tell me. For the positive angle the quality sound is very good.

  4. I’m russian and i want say, thats is the “boring russian house-techno standarts”. Yes, the quality of sound and performance are good. But it’s too mainstream right now. Nothing new.

    p.s. big ups to guys !

  5. Great video guys! I like this track really inspiring. But as I have noticed my roland boutique ju-06 provide some strange noise on the output. Did anyone have the same problem? Big up!
