'Phuture's "Acid Tracks" was the first house track to feature the TB-303 synthesizer—a piece of hardware that would come to define the genre'

Respect!!!!!!!!!!!!

P.s. Isn't it weird how house and techno was developed by black people in the US but now it's predominately white people's music? Obviously I'm talking about the US.
If you think about it, almost all the Detroit/Chicago pioneers were black. However, there very few African-American DJs in electronic music, except for those people in the end of the 80s.

Well it started as a mix of funk, hiphop, electro and other stuff - music that has African-American roots.


And of course Caucasians hate to make it white, like they did with Jesus! :ph34r:
