Press Release:

Zang Tuum Tumb and Salvo Music are proud to present... Blueprint, 808 State's greatest bits, from 1988 to the present day. The very best of the psychoecstatic, trance-inducing, groove-riding, techno-funkalogical sound of 808 State.

808 State are… 'masters of their art' (Q), 'pioneers' (Future Music), 'for sonic trailblazing and inestimable influence, among our most important groups' (Record Collector), and 'Godfathers' (Nude), who 'sketched the blueprint for British techno as we know it' (Mixmag).

The blueprint audio: features guest vocals from Guy Garvey and Björk, remixes by Aphex Twin, Monkey Mafia, Trevor Horn and Brian Eno, and collaborations with Simian and James Dean Bradfield.

808 present brand new, revisited reversions of In Yer Face, Timebomb, Cobra Bora, Nimbus, and 606. 808 unearth rare remixes of Pacific State, Flow Coma, Cübik, Plan 9, Lopez and a previously-unreleased The Word production mix of Olympic. 808 deliver two brand new tracks: Metaluna and Spanish Ice. 808 do this for you.

The blueprint document: features extensive interviews with Graham Massey, Darren Partington and Andrew Barker by Paul Morley, a foreword by Paul Hartnoll from Orbital, and contributions from The Prodigy, Moby and Future Sound of London.

Blueprint is released on 05 September 2011.
