The new version of the very very good TMA-1’s, amazingly called the TMA-2, has been released. It now comes as a truly modular headphone that can be configured in 360 ways, with various artists & labels doing designs for the various parts. Now thats great but what this actually means is that this product comes built from the ground up to have loads of spare parts always available ready to use. A la Sennheiser’s industry standard HD 25’s that you also can swap all the parts out of but you can NEVER get the parts anywhere and it costs a tenner to get it sent from Iceland or something. Just so long as AIAIAI have their distribution game on tip top form these could well be on the way to be the new default purchase for people who break their headphones a lot… like us deejay’s.
Melbourne’s Francis Inferno Orchestra joins the mix series with a fine contribution. Head over to the Modular website for a quick Q & A with the deep house sample producer and find out about his Northern Hemisphere relocation, 90s hip hop and his insatiable appetite for KFC.
Get those early weekend vibes through from this tasty Tensnake podacst for the lovely guys at Modular.
For more info and also a free download head to Modular’s website.
We’ve been huge fans of pretty much everything Pional has been doing this past year and a bit… So very much looking forward to his new podcast for Modular.
John Talabot’s right hand man and Hivern Disc regular is definitely the one to watch for us.
