High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Zak Baney (real name Ralph Baney) started a new genre of techno music in 1987 called acid breaks using various synthesizers. Combining Chicago's acid sound with Florida's breakbeat, it was a completely different sound. It was not his original intention to invent a new style of music - he simply just wanted something different at that time. Not knowing he would be sought after and put in the spot light, Zak Baney used many aliases and put out a string of white labels, not caring to make money or fame, he was strictly in it for the love of the music.After taking a little break and then changing styles of music, Baney again found himself in the spotlight as the Miami bass scene was just starting.
