Mit Pacific - 707 machen sich 808 STATE auf den Weg vom heißesten Underground-Tip der britischen Szene zum Tanzflächenmagmet auch außerhalb der Insel.

808 STATE, das sind vier Musiker aus Manchester, die sich vor eineinhalb Jahren in einem Plattenladen namens Eastern Bloc kennenlernten und seither mit Songs voller ungewöhnlicher Ideen und traumwandlerischem Gespür für den richtigen Groove Gedränge bei den in England grassierenden Warehouse Parties erzeugen.

Martin Price, kreativer Kopf der Band, Graham Massey, der Computer-und Soundspezialist und die beiden DJs Darren und Andy, die als Zwölfjährige im Jugendclub der Heilsarmee mit dem Mixen begannen und heute vom britischen 'ID Magazine' als "eines der heißesten Hip Hop-Mixing Duos der Welt" beschrieben werden, übernahmen bei der Suche nach einem Namen für ihre Band den von Grahams 808 STATE drum machine.

Pacific - 707, das ist die Oboe aus dem Synthesizer, ein Rhythmus, der vom Ohr direkt ins Bein geht, südamerikanische Percussion-Details, gesanpeltes Vogelgezwitscher...eine Kombination, die nur von 808 STATE kommen kann.
