In calling their new single Doncamatic (All Played Out), Gorillaz are drawing attention to a vintage range of Korg rhythm machines. However, what’s less widely known is that the song features a vocal sample of Korg founder and chairman Tsutomu Katoh.

Doncamatic (All Played Out) features British singer/songwriter Daley and will be released on 22 November. Gorillaz are currently on tour in North America, and will kick off their UK and Ireland dates in November.

The shown Doncamatic in the entry area of the headquarters of the Japanese company KORG and was restored in early 2001. The Doncamatic was one of the first products of the then young company Korg. This is a very flexible for damailige Verhälnisse and good sounding rhythm machine with built-in amplifier system. More similar videos are on the www.KORG.de! Between 1963 and 1966, Katoh oversaw the production of four DoncaMatic rhythm machines, and it’s him that you can hear saying ‘DoncaMatic’ on Gorillaz’ single. What’s not clear is whether or not Damon Albarn and co used any DoncaMatic hardware in the creation of the track
