From Navi himself:

'The Roland TB-303 was highly popular in the early 90’s and used on countless records up to this day.  This great synthesizer is responsible for the creation of acid house music genre and many great hip-hop and pop hits.  It slowly started to fade into deep underground, but now it is back. 

Thanks to the Navi Retlav Studio, you can stand out with this iconic sound in your own music productions...the samples are ready to use in any software or hardware sampler, which turns them into fully playable instruments that can be used not only as bass sounds, but also as the higher pitched gritty lead...'

Forthcoming 'Influenced' Podcast

NEWS:  I'm contributing to a new podcast exploring creative connections between legendary and emerging artists Good news alert! I’ve got the great honour and pleasure to be working on a forthcoming music podcast. The podcast, called ‘Influenced’, will trace the path of new artists back to those which came before and reflect on how previous generations of music influenced those which followed their lead, be it directly or indirectly.  Playlists on Spotify and Apple Music will take the listener through our musical time travel in a mixtape fashion. ‘Influenced’ is the brainchild of a great friend of mine, Mark Williams. Mark is even more of a music enthusiast than me and his personality, charisma, enthusiasm and love for music is apparent to anyone who knows him, I’m sure.
