  1. Wow, great sounds and a nice piece. I really dig Kebu’s music and quirkily enthusiastic (and technically impressive) live-sequenced performances. I get the feeling that he isn’t bringing out and playing these vintage instruments just to be some kind of hipster or contrarian, but rather because he really loves the beautiful analog sounds and wants us to love them too.

  2. I don’t feel like analog synths shine best in these rave-type music performances. Could have been microkorgs and would have sounded the same IMO…but a very cool performance nonetheless.

    1. I thought it sounded great, especially because it was epic rave music done with actual analog synths. They weren’t that processed and having heard alot of VA dance music there is cerainly a difference in sound quality.
