808 STATE, laut 'ME/Sounds' "die letzten großen Dance-Innovatoren", bleiben ihren hohen Ansprüchen an sich selbst treu und überraschen mit Ooops: Die zweite Single aus dem aktuellen Album Ex.EI ist zugleich die erste Gesangs-Auskoppelung des englischen Quartetts, das sich nach der legendren drum machine TR 808 aus dem Hause Roland benannt hat. Als Gast-Sängerin gab sich keine geringere als Bjork Gudmundsdottir von den islndischen Sugarcubes die Ehre.

Mit ihrem Debütalbum 90 begeisterten 808 STATE nicht nur die Presse, die beispielsweise "eine Reise durch die Geschichte der synthetischen Musik von Tangerine Dream zu Kraftwerk oder Art Of Noise" (so der 'Pflasterstrand') hörte. Singles wie Pacific State oder Cubic schafften auch den Sprung in die britische Top 20. In Yer Face, die erste Ex.EI-Auskoppelung, erreichte sogar die Top 10.

Ein schwerer mid-tempo Groove, aufgelockert durch prägnante Melodielinien, von Bjorks eigensinniger Stimmführung in gnzlich anderes Licht getaucht - Ooops, ein Crossover der ungewöhnlichen Art, funktioniert auf Anhieb. Voraussichtlich noch in diesem Frühjahr werden sich 808 STATE auch live vorstellen.
