I came across this page looking for various recommendations (starting with John Fahey + Leo Kotke similarities) and I LOOOOOVE everything mentioned.
I cant help but hear the similarity in say that song Slim by Tone Set to old 8bit nintendo music, and I would love to know what kind of machines people were using then to create electronic music.
For any of this stuff, what did they use ????? It's amazing.
Edit - if you have a copy of that finished mix tape, I'd love to get my hands on it.
