How did you get into 808:
Back in 1990, I had a friend come over. He had a bunch of vinyls and 'Pacific' by 808
happened to be one of them. I remember wondering about the enigmatic wave and the catchy
name of 808state or what looked like state808 on the cover! Sitting out in my backroom,
enjoying high summer and lazy days in between high school and university, he plonked it on
my stereo. Well, out poured such glorious sonic beauty contained in those 7th chords! We
listened to both sides in wonderment and by the dizzying end of 'Pacific State' I had
tears in my eyes...I've not looked back since. No other sound has moved me so much.
