Oscillator will celebrate the formal opening of its permanent synth space in DTLA (after 35 events thrown in pop up fashion) with the one and only, ARTHUR BAKER, performing a rare 'Live Synth+Drum-Machine/DJ Combination set, chronicling the genesis of Early Electro including his own contributions to the genre. Baker, a Roland 808 Pioneer, is best known for producing the classic hip hop/electro anthem "Planet Rock" with Afrika Bambaattaa and Planet Patrol in 1982. The record combined elements from two Kraftwerk recordings, "Trans Europe Express" and "Numbers," which were interpolated by studio musicians, rather than sampled. Later that year, utilizing unused tracks from “Planet Rock, he later produced Planet Patrols’ single, "Play at Your Own Risk.” In 1983, Baker co-wrote "Confusion" and "Thieves Like Us" with infamous British group New Order. The 12-inch single "Confusion" was a crossover hit on the U.S. dance charts, and established a relationship between Baker and the band that has continued for more than 30 years.
