Been around a while, this but we must have missed it until now - the Mopho Keyboard (see our review) is a school bus yellow analog monosynth mean machine. And this track "I Dreamt Of Being A Polyphonic Synth" by Val Solo captures the essence of the machine nicely. That bass sound is just lovely.

Dave Smith just tweeted that:


We kind of agree - sparkly euro pop-tastic though it is.

The Mopho Keyboard is still available, even though it was released in 2010 or thereabouts, a testament to its popularity.
