I'm stoked to see Mr. Quintron's Drum Buddy being featured on Boing Boing. Quintron lives in New Orleans, and definitely represents some 9th Ward pride. One of my favorite "swamp tech" songs of all time is "Witch in the Club," which you can check out on his MySpace. The Drum Buddy is an amazing machine: an analog drum machine that creates sound out of light.
