Spectrum A started in the month of July 2016. After a conversation with a friend about music equipment, the founder of Spectrum A had an urge to create his own music. For several years, he was deejaying as a hobby, but soon found out that dance music nowadays, was of a lesser quality then what it used to be in the golden era of the early nineties, the era where Spectrum A’s founder was clubbing. So at that point, he bought Abelton live and started to learn the producing process by himself (and with some help of Chip, another local techno producer).
Soon after starting the learning process, he discovered that without any hardware, the process of creating music was extremly narrow, so he started with the complete Roland AIRA product line and found that this was exactly what he needed to enlarge creativity.

The first productions where melodically of a good quality, but as expected, he had a lack of finesse in the build up of these sounds. Carefully exploring the internet and gathering information about producing techno music, the sounds he produced got better and better. Since there is no well structured and narrow scope guide on how to produce techno music, this was an extremely harsh task to accomplish.
