Charanjit Singh

Profile:
Born 15th December 1940 - died 5th July 2015.

Indian musician from Mumbai who performed in numerous Bollywood soundtrack orchestras during the sixties and seventies.
Singh led a wedding band, recorded and released a number of albums of cover versions of popular songs. His album Synthesizing - Ten Ragas To A Disco Beat, which was released in India in 1983 was a flop but its discovery in 2002 and re-release in early 2010 made him a star among DJs and electronica music mavens. The album has been credited as one of the earliest acid records ever made.

"...None of these would be considered dance music at all." Somebody needs to read up on the history of dance music, and maybe kick start their imagination too; circa 1982, an unassuming session muscian sits down with his newly bought TR 808 and TB 303 and disovers they sink with his Roland Jupiter 8. In a couple of days, all on his lonesome in a flat in Bombay, Charanjit Singh births a sound which six years later becomes the focal point of a generation. A sound, that in Europe alone, scares governments to the point that they create laws banning the music at parties...not punk, not reggae, not disco, not even rock n' roll can claim that!

While this guy has some of the elements of the 80 and 90 era of acid house music. This is nowhere near as catchy at all. None of these would be considered dance music at all.
