In celebration of his 40th birthday, Fool’s Gold boss and dance music vet, A-Trak, has dug up his old E-Mu SP1200 drum machine to whip up a new EP for us titled 10 Seconds Vol. 1.
This project has a neat little story to it. During quarantine, A-Trak decided he was going to fix up his old SP1200, which was broken down and neglected in his storage for over a decade. This was the perfect time to fix it up. He did just that, and now, with it working again, he’s cooking up some beats. 10 Seconds Vol. 1 is the culmination of that work, with the title “named after the notoriously short sample time” of the machine.
The EP contains four funky house tracks (attention: Duck Sauce fans) that all clock in just under four minutes.
You can listen to 10 Seconds Vol. 1 below. And yes, according to A-Trak, there will be a Vol. 2. Enjoy!
