With the 90’s dance music revolution underway Farrar was swept up in what would become the 2nd wave of the acid dance revolution. Australia was now experiencing it’s own halcyon days with warehouse and bush parties beating through the musical landscape. The DIY ethos of dance appealed. Farrar began searching for the elusive gear that made the distinctive sounds.
He started spending more time with his keyboards and sequencer, building what is now an impressive home studio. Farrar’s first releases were ‘Tribal Beats’ on Vicious Vinyl Australia and ‘Tribal Injection’ on Subliminal Recordings USA. In 2003 he hit the limelight with an electro re-take of Black Flag’s 1980’s punk assault ‘Wasted’. Released by BMG Australia, the track spent a record 10 weeks at number one in the Australian Record Industry Association (ARIA) club chart and earned Farrar an ARIA nomination for Best Dance Release in 2004. Back in the studio, Farrar has returned to the underground, focusing his attention on acid house. In honour of Tadao Kikumoto, maker of Farrar’s beloved analog synthesizers and drum machines, including the Roland 909 and 303, he christened his acid house project Kikumoto Allstars.
Kikumoto Allstars ‘Jack the House’ was released by International Deejay Gigolo Records in 2007 with a full length album following in February 2009. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
