That's incorrect. I told Alain Patrick that I didn't know how to program the TB 303 and that's why I've Lost Control's bassline was so whacked. I didn't say that Adonis programmed it.

Adonis knew how to program the TB303 very well, but so did many others that bought the TB 303, but none of them would have intentionally used the TB303 the way I did. As for the way the bassline turned out, it was purely by accident; I punched in notes and that was the result. I'd like to say it was exactly what I wanted, but that wasn't the case. Only someone that didn't know what they were doing could program that bass line, examples of Adonis TB303 programming is "My Space" from my Virgo EP and "No Way Back" by Adonis, both very legible and not at all like the disorganized mess I did.

I've Lost Control was a hit in the Music Box at least 6 months before I even met Adonis. I did a conference call with Adonis and Sleezy last week and we both tried to explain this to Adonis, but he was staying with his story. Whether he actually believed it, your guess is as good as mine.

Adonis was into Prince and Jaco Pastorius and was a very good bass player when I 1st met him, and knew absolutely nothing about House Music. I'm the one who 1st took him to the Music Box for the 1st time.

I am not and never was his student.

The reason everyone thinks 'Acid Tracks' is the first acid track ever is 'cos it was played first (a good 2 years before it's release in '87)
The version of Acid Tracks that was being played by Ron Hardy 2 years before was faster and a lot rawer than the released version (Which is a Marshall Jefferson remix)
The original version was given a brief airing on a British C4 TV documentary 'Pump Up The Volume; The History Of House'
