Charanjit Singh
1940 – July 5, 2015

charanjit-singhCharanjit Singh was a multi instrumentalist from Mumbai, India, who, during the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s, found his calling playing guitar and synthesizer on numerous Bollywood soundtracks.  In 1982, he released Synthesizing: Ten Ragas to a Disco Beat to little fanfare.  But when it was reissued in 2010, it was embraced by the acid house community who acknowledged Singh as a pioneer of the genre.  The sound he created clearly had an influence on the likes of Aphex Twin and Ceephax.  Charanjit Singh was 75 when he died in his sleep on July 5, 2015.
