Illustrator Patrick Wong has released a 3″ limited edition resin toy entitled “MPC60″ (after the legendary sampling drum machine of the same name) targeting beat producers, toy collectors, and connoisseurs of classic hip hop culture. This first release in a series of beat machines, highlights the classic Roger Linn designed Akai MPC60 12bit sampling drum machine first released in 1988. This designer toy is based on the machine made famous by beat producers like DJ Premier and known for its distinctive lofi crunch sound.
“The Akai MPC60 is so iconic, it made the perfect jump-off point for this series. I want to make a genealogy of samplers from the late 80s to 2000s such as the SP1200 and Maschine, marking an evolution of both in technology and music. So much of the music I grew up with was produced on these machines and that why I have dubbed the series: The machines that made a sound of a generation.” explained Patrick Wong.
The MPC60 resin toy begins shipping Friday March 14, 2014 and is available for $35 plus shipping at HERE. Each figure comes with a numbered card, accessory break record (Incredible Bongo Band), and is limited to only 30 pieces. Make sure to get yours before they are gone!
