The last photo. It’s cool 808 State still used vintage synths and drum machines.

Re: New 808 State EP "Initial Granada Report" out 12 July 2019

Tokyo reminds me a bit of Kraftwerk - Elektro Kardiogramm. You can mix Bombadin chants over the first track Ujala. I still miss the album 90 days with the orchestra stabs and synth portamento riffs. The old school flavor. Like how 808 State brought back some sampling. Be interesting if they brought ...

Re: Nice mixes (no 808 State tracks involved)

Wow! I didn't realize I posted so much crap here. What a wnker. Well instead of mixes here's a radio show concept. The concept is just play fun old dated retro dance tunes and call it an oldies format. The show is structured like a radio station with station ID's. Some Manchester talent in there inc...

808 STATE SOUND-A-LIKES

This is not trolling although it's kind of funny. Artist that sound like 808 State. The lost members that should've joined. This guy from Indonesia sounds so much like 808 State Live.

Pretty much how people in the very early 90s saw ...

Re: Gareth Whitehead - The Brood Remixed (featuring remix by 808 State) - out 3 July 2017

I'm actually looking for decent dance music for laptop DJ sets, there's a lot of poor taste EDM and dance music out there. 808 State did a decent job, so did Juan Atkins.

Re: Shadow Of The State -Kick Starter

Flexi Disc have a cool lo-fi sound to them but wear out pretty fast.

Re: 808 State live at Moogfest Durham NC, USA 18-21 May 2017

A good idea for the US is maybe a Madchester tour comprising of different people from that era from different groups, the mondays, inspirals, 808 state, Gerald whatever. It doesn't have to be the lead singer or an entire group but like the drummer from one group or lead guitarist, a manchester DJ se...

Re: Graham Massey on NPR

Hey Graham, thanks for posting those links. It looks like the NPR segment nicked a part from the BBC radio 4 interview. I recognized the "kick drum, vibrate bodies" part. The woman with the British accent sounded similar as well. Edit- It may have been BBC Word Service that airs in the US instead of...

Graham Massey on NPR

I just heard Graham Massey on NPR radio in America about the passing of the Japanese inventor of the 808. It sounded like maybe a snippet pulled form an 808 doc or something. A woman in a European accent said the 808 became popular again in the 1990s with artist using "beat breaks" inspired by Kool ...
