Indian musician Charanjit Singh’s Synthesizing: Ten Ragas To A Disco Beat is something of an anomaly in the chronology of 303-led music.
It was recorded by Singh, a Bollywood session musician, in 1982 using a TB-303 and TR-808, and was intended as an exercise in fusing classical Indian Ragas with disco.
Upon the record’s release, it received some airplay around India but was largely overlooked elsewhere. In recent years, however, the album has come to be recognised as - entirely coincidentally - the first recorded instance of the 303-led sound that would come to be know as acid house (arriving some five years ahead of Phuture’s Acid Tracks - more on that later.)
