For the final episode of Point Blank’s Under the Radar series, R&S/Ecstatic records’ Sam Willis (Primitive World), also a Point Blank instructor, sits down with Glenn McGlynn to go through two more iconic bits of hardware. The E-MU 4XT Ultra and the Ensoniq EPS 16+ the latter being used by the likes on Raekwon, Rza and Ghostface Killah. Both in a rack, these legendary samplers have dropped drastically in price over the years and are immensely powerful tools to have at your disposal when producing your tracks.

For those that haven’t been following the series, Sam and Declan have been discussing several iconic instruments that may have perhaps passed ‘Under The Radar’ over the years.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
