DMX Krew and The One of a Kind Opal Rhythm Computor

DMX Krew - Opal Rhythm Computor tutorial (Drum machine & sampler) - Gear Guide

"A one-of-a-kind drum machine, made from scratch.

Best known as DMX Krew, Ed Upton has been making acid, electro and IDM-laced bangers since the early ‘90s for some of the underground’s best-loved labels, including Aphex Twin’s Rephlex, Legowelt’s Strange Life and, more recently, Hypercolour.

When Upton’s favorite drum machine – an ultra rare RSF SD140 – was stolen and he couldn’t find another one, he learned how to solder and designed and built his own. The Opal Rhythm Computor is a drum machine and sampler filled with sounds from his Roland Alpha Juno synth that doesn’t look or sound like anything you can buy in a store.

Watch it in action above and find his new album Strange Directions at Bandcamp.
