Early drum machines such and the Roland TR-808 and the Linn drum ushered in a new era in music production forming the bedrock of hit songs from the 1980s onward. These legendary instruments have helped define musical genres like Hip Hop and Dance music, and the influence of these designs can’t be underestimated.
