KOshowKO channels the legendary Charanjit Singh by blending the 303 with non-Western instruments


I’m excited to announce the release of my latest track under the KOshowKO alias. It’s titled ‘The 303rd Babel of Greed‘, and is available on the Clan Analogue compilation album ‘Cognition 303: Bassline Deviations‘.

The track was created as a contribution to Clan Analogue’s celebration of the Roland TB-303 Bass Line machine. ‘Cognition 303: Bassline Deviations’ explores the instrument’s 40-year history and its impact on electronic music, showcasing its newest sonic manifestations. This compilation album is being supported by a series of live events in Sydney and Melbourne, including one recent live show on the 303 day, on 3/3/23.

‘The 303rd Babel of Greed’ channels the legendary Charanjit Singh by blending the 303 with non-Western instruments. I had a lot of fun experimenting with different sounds and techniques to create a piece, which I hope is pushing the boundaries of what can be done with the classic TB-303 sound. My main instruments came in the form of 2 mobile apps – Pure Acid (which is possibly the best TB-303 emulation on iOS) as well as Mid East Drummer for the drum lines.
