On this day in 2009, @MichaelJackson died at the age of 50, after suffering heart failure at his home in Beverly Hills. The eighth child of the #Jacksons family, he debuted with his brothers as a member of The #Jacksons5 in 1964. #michaeljackson is credited for transforming the music video into an art form and a promotional tool, four of his solo albums are among the world's best-selling records. In 1991 Michael Jackson's producer Bruce Swedien was contacted by Nils Bjarne Kvam one of the biggest producers in #Norway at the time, and he told him about the #amplifiers of #Electrocompaniet , and Swedien started getting interested. The amplifier was packed and shipped to the US in September 1991. Bruce was busy at the time since he was working with the last mix to Jackson's Dangerous. He LOVED the amplifiers, and wanted to use it on the album, but the album was almost done, and he would then have to remaster it all over again since the difference was so big. #Swedien was ready to use the amplifiers on the next albums. He used it for the first time with Sergio Mendez, and when he walked in the recording studio with Jackson in January 1995 he really started using them. The next two albums #History and #Invincible was mastered with the amplifiers, and both albums thanked @Electrocompaniet with '`Special thanks to Electrocompaniet¨ with logo on its covers.
