While I appreciate your point, our primordial brothers did not hop  
around their fire circle with TR909s or 303s.

Music does happen.  It evolves.  But, to say BT had nothing to do with  
the formation or shall i say "formulation" of trance is to say Mozart  
had nothing to do with the evolution of the Symphony.

I am not giving BT all the credit or even the credit of a "Messiah",  
and frankly there are things he's said that I absolutely disagree with.  
  But one thing I will give him credit for is his major contribution to  
dance music, err.... that is post-1990s dance music.

That, and he knows his sh#$.  Which was why Apple asked him to do the  
G5 demo in the first place.

good vibrationz,
