Here is a post on matrixsynth about an apparent reissue of an album recorded in 1982 using Roland synths. It’s by Charanjit Singh called Synthesizing: TEN RAGAS TO A DISCO BEAT. I don’t know if it is real or some kind of clever mind-game by a current producer, but it is extremely good, and if it is real then it pretty much resets the techno timeline

It does seem that Charanjit Singh is a real person who had some records out in the 70s as this link suggests. And it seems that this person did the audio restoration on the reissue


OK, I’m convinced. And amazed:
